Gilmore Girls Revival Casts Scandal's Dan Bucatinsky

But who is he playing?

Sadie Gennis

Former Scandal star Dan Bucatinsky has joined Netflix's Gilmore Girls revival.

The actor shared multiple Instagram posts from the set Tuesday, indicating that he'll be working a lot with Alexis Bledel, who plays Rory Gilmore.

According to the first photos of the revival, Rory is now a teacher. Could Bucatinsky be one of her co-workers?

Bucatinsky is not the first connection between Stars Hollow and Shondaland. In the nine years since Gilmore Girls ended, many of its alums have gone on to appear in a Shonda Rhimes series, including Keiko Agena, Liza Weil, David Sutcliffe, Liz Torres and Emily Kuroda.

Netflix will debut four 90-minute installments of Gilmore Girls later this year, with each movie episode representing one of the four seasons.
