Two of TV's most popular shows might be colliding. Scandal alum Columbus Short may pop up on Empire's second season.

Short played Harrison Wright on the ABC drama until being killed off during last season's finale. Prior to his dismissal, the Scandal actor had struggled with substance abuse and legal troubles, including domestic violence charges and a bar fight. Now, he's plotting his return to Hollywood, hinting that an appearance on the Fox musical drama might be next.

"Big things are happening," Short told E! News when asked about the casting rumors. "I'm going to be bridging my music career with my acting career."

"I'm just saying it wouldn't be a shock," Short added.
