Two longtime television colleagues are scrubbing in again as they launch a new series.
John C. McGinley worked with executive producer Bill Lawrence for nine seasons as the caustic Dr. Perry Cox on the hospital sitcom "Scrubs." Now the actor plays another slightly off-center mentor as Mr. Mansfield, the self-impressed boss of young bankers in "Ground Floor," a new comedy co-created by Lawrence that premieres with two episodes Thursday, Nov. 14, on TBS.
"When Billy called me up about this, I was just coming off '42,' " the perpetually busy McGinley tells Zap2it, "and I was happily reintegrating myself into doing films. I told him that having had one of the premium experiences of my life, doing the nine years on 'Scrubs' and playing such a damaged and delicious character, I was pretty gun-shy about going back in that pool. And Billy just broke it down for me »
