Henry Ian Cusick is done being "Scandal"-ized.
"Lost" alum Cusick will not return to ABC's drama "Scandal" for its second season, TheWrap has confirmed.
On the Shonda Rhimes-created series -- which stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a former White House communications director who goes into private practice with a crisis-management firm -- Cusick played Stephen Finch, a womanizing employee of Pope's.
No word on how Finch's character will be handled -- or not handled -- in the show's second season.
Cusick's upcoming projects include the upcoming thriller "The Girl on the Train" about a documentary filmmaker whose life takes a dramatic turn after a chance encounter with a mysterious woman.
