Veteran actor Joe Morton says he does not think there is any possibility of a "Scandal" spin-off.

Morton played Eli "Rowan" Pope in the series, which had Kerry Washington in the lead.

"I don't think there's going to be a spin-off. Shonda (Rhimes) was pretty clear that she always had a beginning, middle and end to 'Scandal'," the 70-year-old actor told Entertainment Tonight.

"When it ended... (what the cast did), was trying to say, 'Well maybe there's a movie'. But I don't think so," he added.

Morton was at CBS' Television Critics Association press tour, where he was promoting his new show "God Friended Me".

In the show, he plays Rev Arthur Finer, a man who tries to reconnect with his atheist son, Miles, played by Brandon Micheal Hall.

Mortan said he wanted his next TV role to be the polar opposite of his "Scandal" character.

"It was a deliberate choice to find someone diametrically opposed to Rowan. I didn't want to do the same thing all over again, not that I'd even be able to find such a wonderful character. And this character is wonderful in a different way," he said.
