Sony Pictures Entertainment 's not-so-secret weapon against North Korea and bad press? Following a swelling PR nightmare in light of an extensive attack by anonymous hackers, which prompted Sony to cancel the theatrical release of its film The Interview , the company has hired crisis specialist Judy Smith — the woman whose career inspired Kerry Washington's character on hit ABC drama Scandal . TMZ broke the news of Smith's involvement with Sony, reporting that she has already begun "quietly advising Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal." The Hollywood Reporter later confirmed news of the hire. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/jkbpm8HhJU0/ http://www.wochit.com
