Scrubs: New Characters Revealed!

at . Comments

Following a hilarious eighth season, which culminated in a perfect season finale, we were a bit apprehensive when NBC announced another season of Scrubs; one that will feature a slew of new characters.

But we're encouraged by the promotion of Eliza Coupe to series regular. Her intern character of Denise was hilarious this spring.

Who will join Denise, Dr. Cox and Dr. Turk as the main characters this season? NBC sent out a casting notice this week, as it seeks to fill the following key roles for the fall:

  • Lucy Tompkins: A 22-year-old first year medical student, quite attractive all-American girl, from a close-knit family of commercial fishermen.
  • Drew Suffin: A 30-year-old medical student, scruffy but attractive with sex appeal, and charisma. Similar to Bill Murray.
  • Cole McCallister: A 22-year-old medical student, very handsome, charming, conservative, confidently stupid, impeccably-dressed and very entitled. Annoys the heck out of Dr. Cox.

Creator Bill Lawrence has said he wants at least one major name to join the show. Does anyone come to mind for any of these roles?

Dr. Perry Cox

Dr. Cox will have a new set of students to scream out on season nine of Scrubs. We can't wait.

Scrubs Quotes

Turk: With Marbury, I really believe New York has a shot at the title, man.
J.D.: Yeah, me too.
Turk: Which sport are we talking about?
J.D.: I wanna say tennis...

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?
