Kerry Washington says the first lady is one of the high-profile figures she's eyeing for a cameo on “Scandal.”

Washington, who stars as D.C. political crisis communications guru Olivia Pope in the ABC drama, was asked by Glamour magazine at its annual awards show who she’d like to see guest star on the series.


“Gosh! Rihanna. Or Beyonce. Or Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaMichelle Obama to Simone Biles: 'We are proud of you and we are rooting for you' Obama setting up big bash to celebrate his 60th Poll: 73 percent of Democratic voters would consider voting for Biden in the 2024 primary MORE. That’s my dream team,” she said.

Washington and Obama, along with actress Sarah Jessica Parker, all graced the May cover of the women’s mag.

The first lady has admitted to binge-watching the political thriller, saying in an interview last year that she clocked in some major viewing time during a flight to Hawaii, “I watched all the seasons. I caught up on ‘Scandal,’ I had never watched it.

“I love Kerry Washington,” Obama said, “she is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”

And further evidence an Obama cameo might not be completely far-fetched: “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes was recently a guest at the White House, attending the state dinner in April for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
