Stephen Collins Child Scandal keeps him out of Show

scandal collins“Scandal” is keeping its distance from Stephen Collins in the wake of his child molestation scandal.

The former 7th Heaven star was set to return to Scandal this season as Reed Wallace — a character originally introduced back in Season 2 — but they have reportedly had a change of heart. A rep for the network tells BuzzFeed that ABC “will not be airing any footage with Stephen Collins.”

Collins’ second appearance had already been filmed, which the actor confirmed Sept. 24 on Twitter: Happy to say I did another episode of #Scandal. Had a gr8 time. Wish I could say more but @ShondaRhimes would have to kill me.

A 2012 tape of Collins allegedly admitting to molesting several children years prior was released earlier this week by TMZ.
