Dave Franco is joining the cast of “Scrubs” as a regular.
With “Scrubs” shifting from a hospital to medical school environment next season, Franco is just the first of a number of new regulars.
Franco will play Cole, the screw-up son of a wealthy donor to the school. The character may be dangerously incompetent, but he’s also arrogant and entitled. So says The Hollywood Reporter, which didn’t feel up to noting that our buddy Korbi from Zap2it broke the casting story several days earlier.
In addition to being James Franco’s younger brother, Dave Franco’s recent TV credits include a regular role on “Do Not Disturb” (not that that amounted to much), as well as arcs on “Greek” and “Privileged.”
