Has the World Forgiven Tony Goldwyn for Being the Bad Guy in Ghost?
"I was definitely the yuppie villain of the 90s," the Scandal star said about his unforgettable role on #WWHL.
Long before he was President Fitzgerald Grant on Scandal, Tony Goldwyn was best known for playing Roz's hunky garbage man boyfriend on Frasier and (maybe more importantly) the guy who killed Patrick Swayze's character in Ghost. It's been 26 years since that flick hit theaters and forever changed the way we look at the pottery wheel, so it might be a good time for us to let go of our ill feelings for Tony's Carl Bruner once and for all. Because let's face it: It's been decades, and he's also incredibly good-looking. And that seems to be the general consensus.
"All the time [people come up to me about that movie]. Now it’s more like, 'I’ve finally forgiven you for Ghost' because they like Scandal," Tony shared on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday. He then summed up his pivotal role perfectly: "People don't even use that word anymore [yuppie], but I was definitely the yuppie villain of the 90s."
