Columbus Short may have been killed off “Scandal,” but it seems that he may be headed to Fox’s new hit series, “Empire.”

While promoting his indie film, “The Girl Is in Trouble” Columbus spoke to E! News about his upcoming projects since leaving “Scandal.”

Though Columbus admits he misses being apart of Olivia Pope & Associates, he says that he is currently working on his music and acting career. 

"I'm not only back but it's about to be a problem for Hollywood because we're going to go big," he said. "I'm excited, but I'm also humbled and grateful.”

When asked whether he would consider joining the cast of “Empire,” Columbus neither confirmed or denied.

"I'm just saying it wouldn't be a shock,” he replied.

He added, "Big things are happening. I’m going to be bridging my music career with my acting career.”
