Eliza Coupe: Promoted to Series Regular on Scrubs

by at . Comments

Hilarious casting news from Scrubs today:

Eliza Coupe, who dominated every scene she was in last season, has been promoted to a series regular on the ABC sitcom.

Series creator Bill Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly that Coupe's hilariously insensitive, icy, horny intern, Denise would play an major part in next season's medical school reboot.

"I really like Eliza," Lawrence said. "I think she's a really interesting actress and we didn't give her a full character [last season]. I think she's hyper-talented."

On season eight of Scrubs, we learned that Denise likes to "bang dudes." What lies ahead for this intern in the fall?
