Watch Ellen DeGeneres & Hillary Clinton Play 'Heads Up!' With 'Scandal' Star Tony Goldwyn

Hillary Clinton is getting a "Heads Up!" from one of her most famous fictional colleagues.

The presidential hopeful got to hone her acting skills while taping an upcoming appearance for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," joining Ellen and "Scandal" star Tony Goldwyn for a friendly round of the electronic charades game. 

Hillary explained that her campaign staff is often up until "3, 4 o'clock in the morning" playing "Heads Up!" so she was looking forward to finally experiencing the fun for herself. 

"I am so excited about this," the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State told Ellen. "I need all the help I can get."

"Who better to play with than the person whose job you're applying for?" Ellen teased, before introducing Tony as his popular TV character, President Fitzgerald Grant. 

Working in tandem, Hillary and Ellen acted out a series of common words and phrases for Tony, including "Dentist," "Patty Cake" and "Haircut," before stumping him with their non-verbal rendition of "Photobomb."

The trio clearly had a blast, and Hillary may have been taking notes along the way for next time.

"You're very competitive, right?" Ellen asked before the game kicked off.

"A little," the politician responded with a smile.
