The lament of character actors is that they get the face recognition from their countless appearances in TV shows and films, but none of the name recognition to propel them to bigger roles. So, in this EW pardoy PSA, a half-dozen or so character actors band together to claim their right to star in a summer blockbuster.

And it only sort of works on a comedic level. First off, they could have probably gotten some more recognizable actors to appear. Some of them are sort of known (Dave Costabile from Breaking Bad and The Wire, Matt Walsh, who’s really more of a comedian than a character actor, and Donald Faison, who actually starred in a network TV show for like 7 seasons), then they get a slew of folks who aren’t only recognizable, but frankly a little scary-looking.

See who you can recognize, then write your local congressman to address the issue.

(Please don’t write your congressman about this.)

‘Scrubs’ Is Heading To Broadway? http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/scrubs-is-heading-to-broadway/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/scrubs-is-heading-to-broadway/#comments Mon, 17 Feb 2014 16:45:30 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=259416 Move over, other-musicals-I-don't-know-by-name.

It’s President’s Day, and interesting news stories are notoriously scarce on holidays, so let’s make hay while the sun is shining with this one. Scrubs, the sort-of-adored hospital comedy that sort of became a dramedy, and became very meta in its later seasons, is becoming a musical.

Why? Because creator Bill Lawrence wants to. And that’s that.

The show won’t draw from any particular episode, but will draw generally from the themes and characters. Yes, Zach Braff will be involved, and no, he won’t be acting/singing in it.

If you’re having a hard time digesting this news, take solace in the fact that it probably won’t run until 2017, and America will be an apocalyptic dystopia by then, with only government dignitaries and robot assassins allowed access to Broadway musicals.

Zach Braff Takes To Reddit To Remind Everyone He Exists And Starred In ‘Scrubs’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/zach-braff-takes-to-reddit-to-remind-everyone-he-exists-and-starred-in-scrubs/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/zach-braff-takes-to-reddit-to-remind-everyone-he-exists-and-starred-in-scrubs/#comments Wed, 28 Sep 2011 22:06:04 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=230429 Also, he's a fan of indie rock and good friends with Donald Faison!

Have you felt funny recently? If so, it might be because Zach Braff hasn’t been in our lives the way he once was. With no more Scrubs, and years passed since Garden State allowed all your yuppie friends to feel emo, we haven’t seen much of the actor/writer/director.

All that ended yesterday with an all-day “AMA” session on Reddit.com. For those of you with jobs, let me explain that Reddit is essentially a user-generated portal where web denizens post links to funny stories, memes, and pictures of kittens doing stuff. And “AMA” stands for “Ask Me Anything,” a Q&A session made famous by Ashton Kutcher (which should give you an idea of the type of news we’re dealing with right here).

He revealed that he would “most like to guest star” on Zooey Deschanel‘s new Fox show The New Girl, presumably because they both cater to a similar type of Whole Foods-y quirk and angst that everyone at your advertising agency can agree on. He also shared that he’s written a play, All New People, that he’s hoping will premiere in London’s West End next year. I’m sure we will give that one a lot of coverage on our sister site, PlayJunkies.com

The marathon chat session quite literally lasted all day, and I’ve got an article on hot movie lesbians to write, so feel free to check out the back-and-forth in its entirety right here, but please put on your smug boots and smug slicker before wading into this thing.

Fans of the later”Scrubs” episodes got a pleasant surprise last week when Eliza Coupe showed up on NBC’s “Community” sporting a pair of dark aviators and a pantsuit. The actress, who portrayed intern Jo Mahoney on the last two seasons of “Scrubs,” was playing a secret service agent tasked with interrogating “Community” favorite Abed. The role was left open to possible future appearances, but if that doesn’t happen, Coupe fans can see her on the upcoming ABC series “Happy Endings.”

A word from Eliza: “I think the terminology used in this industry is hilarious. I had a meeting the other day, and someone actually said in conversation, ‘Cut to next week.’ I looked around and was, like, what? Are we in a movie script right now?”

DVD Review: ‘Scrubs’ Season Nine http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/dvd-review-scrubs-season-nine/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/dvd-review-scrubs-season-nine/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I can’t believe they cancelled “Scrubs” after only nine seasons.

I can’t believe they cancelled “Scrubs” after only nine seasons. I loved the show the whole way through, and I really liked what they were doing with the new medical students. I could have seen it going on like a comedy “ER” with a rotating cast of stars. At least we have nine years of abstract hilarity and gut punching emotion in the archives.

The menu screen is a hilarious brochure video for Winston University. That might be one of the most scathing “Scrubs” spoofs they’ve ever done. The six minute “Scrubbing In” featurette is the basic behind the scenes short explaining the new direction of the season. A little late, but I still liked where they were going with it.

The deleted scenes offer more “Scrubs” jokes but Bill Lawrence introduces them all and talks through most of them. Although he says funny things slamming network sponsors or his own cast, it would be nice to just see the scenes. There were some high fives from the Todd and fantasy sequences in there.

“Live from the Golf Cart” features the two campus security guards, in character, but Robert Maschio joins them as The Todd so I’m always happy to see him in character. It’s only two minutes long so it doesn’t get old and it’s a nice extra for uberfans. A short bloopers reel shows the cast mugging and blubbering. No big deal but it’s fun and they kept it brief.

‘Scrubs’ Actress Nicky Whelan http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/scrubs-actress-nicky-whelan/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/scrubs-actress-nicky-whelan/#comments Wed, 03 Mar 2010 18:58:00 +0000 Defy Media Nicky Whelan is an Australian-born actress/goddess. What do they put in the water over in Australia? All of their hot, talented natives are taking over Hollywood, and rightly so. Isn't that supposed to be an island full of convicts? If so, I'd gladly swing on down and drop the soap in the shower. A word from Nicky: "I'm a good girl when I'm at work."Well work's only nine hours of the day, yaknowwhatI'msayin'?More pics of Nicky being bad after the jump.
