Kerry Washington may have taken telelvision by storm, playing crisis manager Olivia Pope on ABC's "Scandal," but she joked today that she is still haunted by being cast as a frog in a college musical.
"It was not my lifetime dream role to play a frog. In fact, the thought of it terrified me," Washington said in a commencement speech today at her alma mater, George Washington University.
It was Washington's junior year when she was cast as a frog in the musical "Croak, or The Last Frog," depicting the journey of Cassandra, the last frog on earth.
As a presidential scholar for the arts, Washington said, she was required to audition for every production at the school in order to keep her scholarship. After being cast in the show, Washington said she took the challenge head-on and spent hours watching frogs, reading about frogs and holding frogs.
"I crossed the threshold into unknown territory," she said with a laugh, addingRead More »from Kerry Washington: 'Scandal' Star Shares Memories From Her College Years

Before Kerry Washington took telelvision by storm, playing crisis manager Olivia Pope on ABC's "Scandal," she recalled one of her most cringeworthy roles was in college when she was cast as a frog.
Accidentally butt dialing someone is embarrassing or inconsequential to most, but for two Fresno, Calif., men, their cell phone mishap landed them in jail.
The call, which went to 911, started like any other call to the police dispatcher, with the operator asking, "What is your emergency?"
But when no one answered, the operator didn't hang up, instead staying on the line and listening to the pair, who police identified as Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart, both 20, as they talked about wanting to do drugs. It wasn't long before the conversation turned to breaking into a car.
"Get the bolt and give me the hammer just in case," one of the two voices on the phone said.
Shortly after that statement, the dispatcher heard a window shatter and the people on the phone started yelling that they found prescription drugs.
As the two were driving away, police were already in the area searching for the men based on clues that the 911 dispatcher was feeding to them.

Pfeiffer: Legality of IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups 'Irrelevant' Because Behavior 'Inexcusable'By Benjamin Bell | ABC News – 2 hours 8 minutes ago
This morning on "This Week," White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" that the legality surrounding the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue service is "irrelevant," but called the behavior "inexcusable."
"I can't speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant. The activity was outrageous and inexcusable, and it was stopped and it needs to be fixed so we ensure it never happens again," Pfeiffer said.
Stephanopoulos asked Pfeiffer if he really thought the law is "irrelevant."
"What I mean is, whether it's legal or illegal is not important to the fact that the conduct doesn't matter. The Department of Justice has said they're looking into the legality of this. The president is not going to wait for that. We have to make sure it doesn't happen again, regardless of how that turns out," Pfeiffer said.Read More »from Pfeiffer: Legality of IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups 'Irrelevant' Because Behavior 'Inexcusable'
