Exclusive: Courteney Cox Checks Into 'Scrubs'

Ccox J.D., Elliot and Co. have a new friend!
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Courteney Cox is joining the
cast of Scrubs for a three-episode arc as Sacred Heart’s new Chief of
Medicine.

Remember back in May, when exec producer Bill Lawrence
revealed to me that he was looking to stunt cast the role of Dr.
Kelso’s successor? Yeah, I know — I’d say he kept his word, too.

Cox’s boss lady character will “ruffle feathers,” teases a Scrubs insider.

For
my money, the gig is a very smart move on Cox’s part. Coming off of the
unfortunate Dirt, she needed a role that showcased her at her best — in
other words, making people laugh. And what better show to be her first
comedy since Friends ended four years ago than, um, only my favorite
comedy on TV? I love it. But the real question is, do you love it? I
think I know, but go ahead and comment anyway!

    To be honest Scubs hasn’t been good since the 2nd season.

  • brynna

    Me thinks this will be fun…

  • Jessica

    I haven’t watched new Scrubs episodes in a while (only reruns), but I will definitely tune in for this!

  • Mishigoth

    To be honest I’m not feeling much Scrubs love either, but I think that Cox’s talent will make any episode she’s in watchable. It’s a good move for both her and the show.

  • WolfKing

    You missed a chance for a killer “Dr. Cox” pun here… I have high hopes that this season will be back on track, based on comments by producers, and her catsing is a good start.

  • Delon

    Love it !!!

  • LA

    Not loving it. This is the wrong Cox for Scrubs.

  • Mike

    Scrubs hasn’t been funny in years and the fact that you call it your favorite comedy when 30 Rock and The Office are on the air makes me wonder what Bill Lawrence has on you.

  • graeme

    Oh wow. Very nice.
    I really want to see Cox on a drama cause I think she’s just a stellar dramatic actress (Dirt was crap, but she was great on it), but this is a nice stepping stone for her on a major network.

  • ash

    cool ….any thing on the cast in the bahama’s

  • TMB

    i love it!

  • Jenny

    I love it! I can’t wait for the new season and I’m personally hoping she’ll stick around longer than 3 eps.

  • KHook

    This is awesome news! I don’t care what anyone says, Scrubs is still a good show. This will make it even better.

  • dbldn11

    Scrubs is and has been one of, if not, the best shows on TV since it premiered. This will be a tremendous addition. Office and 30 Rock are terrific shows, but Scrubs reigns supreme!!

  • T-Dot

    Can I just comment how much I love Ausiello on ew.com?
