Armchair Casting Director: 'Scrubs'

Scrubs has officially started casting the three new med students exec producer Bill Lawrence first told me about last month. Details are as follows…

LUCY: A 22-year-old, all-American girl from a working class family. Her entire family has sacrificed all their hopes and dreams on her success. She has a nervous habit of lying about mundane things in an effort to connect with people. Series regular.

DREW: A 30-year-old scruffy yet attractive student. Think a younger Bill Murray. This is his last shot of making a go of this med school thing – and he knows it. On the surface he’s cool and a bit of a wise-ass. Deep down, he’s neurotic and terrified of failing again. Series regular.

COLE: A 22-year-old charming, conservative, insanely entitled med student. Seems like a sweetheart at first but he’s really an ass. His wealthy family donated a wing to the med school and he has a residency slot waiting for him at Sacred Heart when he graduates. Competitive, manipulative, reckless and an enormous irritant to Dr. Cox. Series regular.

    Brittany Snow would be a great Lisa!

    Whoops, I mean Lucy, not Lisa.

  • ann

    How about Liza Weil (from “Gilmore Girls”) as Lucy?

  • Adam

    Norm McDonald for Cole…well … if he was 20 years younger lol

  • paulzy

    Alia Shawkat for the girl? Sounds like a “Maeby Fünke” to me. Maybe not “All American” enough.

  • MWC

    I’m guessing these will be people we’ve heard little about. Keep it on the cheap.

  • R

  • Debbie

    Chad Michael Murray for entitled Cole

  • blackmamba

  • The Guat

    Maybe Joanna Garcia for Lucy?

  • alex

    Chris Messina for Drew?

  • Bill S

    Debbie- Chad Michael Murray was the first name that popped into my head for Cole. He played a similar character on “Gilmore Girls”.
    For the part of Lucy, how about Amber Tamblyn, since ABC stupidly canceled “The Unusuals”?
    Could we lure Justin Long away from feature films to play Drew?

  • Ruby

    LEE PACE for the 30-year-old one. Because hes a really talented actor, and since Pushing Daisies was canceled (BOO!) I need a fix.
    And I agree with Paulzy about Alia Shawket.
