From Gladiators to Smilers?
Two of Olivia Pope’s most dedicated soldiers may have a new allegiance after eagle-eyed fans spotted Guillermo Diaz (Huck) and Darby Stanchfield (Abby) rocking out front row on Wednesday’s (Jan. 29) “Miley Cyrus Unplugged” special on MTV.
Before the Tuesday taping, Stanchfield shared a photo of herself and Diaz holding two red paper tickets with the caption, “Where are these #gladiators going?!” Diaz retweeted the photo, adding his own celebratory exclamation: “F*** yea! Miley&Madonna.”
And sure enough, there the two were clapping along as Cyrus introduced her stripped rendition of “Get It Right.” And if you look closely enough in the lower righthand corner of Cyrus’ performance with Madonna, mashing up her hit “We Can’t Stop” with Madge’s “Don’t Tell Me,” you can see a very excited Diaz dancing along.
In the end, though, Smiler (the pet term for Cyrus’ fans) may not be the appropriate title for Diaz. After a fan tweeted, “My favorite part of #MileyUnplugged is seeing @guillermodiazyo rockin’ out in the audience,” the “Scandal” star tweeted, “Madonna :p.”
Looks like Huck’s a Material Girl fan, through and through.
