Gotcha! Scandal actor Josh Malina wanted to do something for Jimmy Kimmel's 47th birthday on Thursday, Nov. 13, so he asked some of his costars on ABC's hit political drama — including Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn — to record video messages for the late-night host. Sounds nice, right?

Little did they know what Malina had planned for those messages. The West Wing alum, 48, strategically pre-wrote all the greetings so they could be re-edited to create other sentences. He then cut and spliced the birthday wishes at will.

Us Weekly got an exclusive sneak peek of the clips from Washington and Goldwyn, who play D.C. fixer Olivia Pope and her illicit lover President Fitzgerald Grant, respectively. Both will air Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which also features appearances by fellow Scandal actress Bellamy Young and Dumb and Dumber To star Jim Carrey.

Watch the clips below! (One of them features a pregnancy tease — can you guess which?)
