Two of our favorite celebs Scandal’s  Kerry Washington and House of Lies’  Don Cheadle got together recently for a very intimate conversation with Variety  magazine. The two powerhouse actors talk candidly about staying employed in Hollywood, the issue of race and gender and the role of activism in this 30-minute video.

They also have an interesting discussion about network television programs versus cable television shows.  Both actors agree that the “most exciting writing and characters” are now found on the small screen and the hierarchy of film over television has definitely changed the acting game.

Check out the video below and tell us what you think in the comments section:
