From ABC to HBO! From a woman in power to a woman who felt powerless.  From ensuring justice as Olivia Pope to seeking justice as Anita Hill! Kerry Washington is extending her power within the entertainment industry as she accepts a new role in the HBO biopic, Confirmation. The upcoming film features the events of the scandal-plagued nomination process of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, as Anita Hill accused the then-nominee of sexual harassment. This role takes Olivia from a role of infinite power on Scandal, to one of much vulnerability. Although we absolutely love Scandal, and Ms. Pope has gladiators all over the world, she is taking on a more historical role.  Washington’s character in the biopic will be the vessel for the re-telling of the Anita Hill story.
