Where Are They Now? The Cast of ‘Scrubs’ September 20, 2019Leave a comment

Remember "Scrubs"? For those who still have the "I'm No Superman" theme song stuck in their heads, we've checked on the whereabouts of each "Scrubs" cast member long after their departure from Sacred Heart...

Zach Braff (Then)

Buena Vista Television

John "J.D" Dorian, played by Zach Braff, blissfully narrated many of the show's episodes which followed the character's struggles to navigate through the tough world of medicine while developing ever-evolving relationships with his coworkers. Before his debut on "Scrubs," Braff had previously played Andrew Largeman in "Garden State," voiced the title character in "Chicken Little" and made appearances on "Arrested Development."

Following "Scrubs," Braff went on to voice the flying monkey Finley in "Oz the Great and Powerful" before appearing on "Undateable" in 2015. In 2018, he starred in and directed "Alex, Inc." which centered around his character Alex Schulman's decision to start his own company. He also directed the film "Going In Style" and wrote the play "All New People" which toured throughout the UK.

Judy Reyes (Then)

Buena Vista Television

As Carla Espinosa, Judy Reyes is fiercely opinionated and strong-willed. She is also extremely proud of her culture and has to constantly remind her husband of her Dominican heritage. Reyes had previously made minor appearances on "Law & Order," "NYPD Blue," "The Sopranos" and "Castle."

After "Scrubs," Reyes went on to appear in "Hawthorne," "Medium," "iZombie" and "Fresh Off the Boat." From 2013-2016, she starred as Zoila Diaz on "Devious Maids." Within this past year she has played Ramona on "One Day at a Time," Dina Milagro on "Jane the Virgin" and currently stars in "Claws" as Quiet Ann.

John C. McGinley (Then)

Buena Vista Television

Playing the Chief of Medicine and J.D's reluctant father-figure and mentor, Perry Cox's most dominant trait is his brutal sarcasm. Despite his harsh exterior, Cox showed moments of empathy and was especially close with Carla and his ex-wife Jordan. Before "Scrubs," McGinley appeared as Sgt. O'Neill in "Platoon," Danny Kriezel in "Fraiser" and provided voices for "King of the Hill," "Spider-Man" and "Justice League: Unlimited."

He also made appearances on "Burn Notice" and "Ground Floor" and starred in "Alex Cross" and "The Belko Experiment." After playing Stanley Miller on "Stan Against Evil," he now stars as Brian Kelton on "Chicago P.D."

Ken Jenkins (Then)

Buena Vista Television

As the former Chief of Medicine before his retirement, Bob Kelso had a very desensitized outlook when working at Sacred Heart, preferring to do what was best for the hospital rather than its patients. However, the stern doctor's compassionate side would appear every once in a while and occasionally he was willing to "look the other way" when it came to treating patients with little to no health insurance. Jenkins had previously appeared as Captain on "Dallas," Dr. Paul Stubbs on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and Pastor Neal in "Beverly Hills, 90210."

Neil Flynn (Then)

Buena Vista Television

Oddly charismatic despite his frequent lying about every aspect of his life, The Janitor (who was nameless for the majority of the series) loved pulling elaborate pranks on J.D who became the target of his taunts after allegedly sticking a penny in one of the hospital's doors. He was briefly infatuated with "Blonde Doctor" (Elliot) before marrying "Lady" Williams later in the series. Flynn previously appeared in "The Fugitive," "The Drew Carey Show," "That 70's Show" and "Smallville."

Sarah Chalke (Then)

Buena Vista Television

Playing the neurotic Elliot Reid, Sarah Chalke's character had an off-and-off relationship with J.D before the two married in the series finale. Despite her very active sex life, one of Reid's most noticeable habits was her refusal to use the proper names for certain sexual organs or activities. Before her time on "Scrubs," Chalke appeared in "Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy" and "The Fresh Beat Band."

The actress is set to star in the television adaptation of "Firefly Lane" with Katherine Heigl.

Sam Lloyd (Then)

Buena Vista Television

Theodore "Ted" Buckland worked as Sacred Heart's lawyer and was the target of frequent taunts by Kelso and other staff members. Suffering low self-esteem issues, Ted would often try to commit suicide by leaping off the hospital's roof but never went through with the attempts. He is the founder of the a capella group known as "The Worthless Peons." Lloyd had previously appeared as Lance Armstrong on "City" and played minor roles in "Flubber," "Galaxy Quest" and "Spin City."

After "Scrubs," Lloyd went on to appear in "Cougar Town," "The Middle," and "The PET Squad Files." In 2018, he made minor appearances on "Alex Inc." and "Happy Together." In February, the actor was diagnosed with inoperable cancer which inspired his former "Scrubs" cast mates to create a GoFundMe page which has since raised over $148,000.

Christa Miller (Then)

Buena Vista Television

Ex-wife of Perry Cox and board member at Sacred Heart, Jordan Sullivan used her sarcastic wit and rudeness to hide her fear of being vulnerable around others. Before "Scrubs," Christa Miller briefly appeared on "Seinfeld" before starring on "The Drew Carey Show" and "The Andromeda Strain."

Tom Cavanagh (Then)

As the laid-back older brother of J.D, Dan lived a very lack-luster life in his mother's attic while working as a part-time bartender.

Cavanagh had previously starred in several television shows including "Love Monkey," "Eli Stone" and "Trust Me."
