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?

Scrubs Quotes

J.D.: Hey, I heard a great joke. A guy walks into a dentist's office and says, "I think I'm a moth." And the dentist says, "Well, if you think you're a moth, why are you at a dentist's office?"
J.D.'s narration: Oh, no, I forgot the punchline... You can't bail out now! Stall! Stall!
J.D.: ...So the moth says "That's a good question. What kind of dentist are you?" And the dentist says, "Well, I'm a general dentist, but I...I do dabble in orthodontry - braces and such." And... and the moth says, "Orthodontry? I hear there's great money in that."
J.D.'s narration: "The light was on"!
J.D.: "But! To answer your original question, which was, if I think I'm a moth, why am I in a dentist's office? The answer is, Because the light was on!" The light! The light, James. Moths love light. So, James, other than your funny bone being broken, what seems to be the problem?

(To J.D.)Not so fast. You're my bitch now.
