What the CIA did to make Huck into...Huck...remains a mystery. A highly trained and highly damaged covert operative, the low-key and quietly brilliant Huck now swears his allegiance to Olivia Pope and will happily go very, very far to protect her or his colleagues at Olivia Pope and Associates. He’s a seasoned spy and a masterful hacker with an admitted tendency for extreme measures—very, very extreme measures, the most extreme measures. But he’s trying really hard to be good.
Guillermo Diaz currently stars as Huck on the ABC hit series "Scandal." Diaz became a household name after starring as "Scarface" in the cult classic film "Half Baked" in 1998, opposite Dave Chappelle and Jim Breuer. He also starred in other indie hits including "Party Girl," Nigel Finch's acclaimed film "Stonewall," "200 Cigarettes" and "High School High."
