Boy, when creator Bill Lawrence announced that he was looking for a ‘big name’ to play Dr. Kelso’s successor on SCRUBS, he really wasn’t joking. Direct from the Lord of the Scoop™ himself, Michael Ausiello: “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.”
Of course such exciting news begs three important questions. 1) How bad is NBC looking right now for dropping what’s shaping up to be one helluva fantastic season of SCRUBS? 2) How confusing will the SCRUBS set be now that there are two Cox’s on the lot [That’s Dr. Cox and Courteney folks.. get your head out of the gutter!] 3) TV Guide will report this news when?
