Here’s Cyrus Beene From “Scandal” Reading Taylor Swift Lyrics

Jeff Perry, who plays Cyrus Beene on “Scandal,” is able to turn the character’s trademark high blood-pressure tirades on at the flip of a switch. The hosts of “The View” must have picked up on his acting prowess, because on the show earlier this week they asked him to read the lyrics to “Shake It Off” in character. Perry managed to turn Taylor Swift’s lyrics into commanding White House dialogue in an instant. Cyrus, never change. [Perez Hilton]
