FEATURE: 11 of the best Scrubs celebrity guest stars
Scrubs will always have a place in our hearts.
Last week we brought you a list of the best celebrity guest stars in Friends, and if there's one show that can compete with Friends for sheer comedic genius, it's Scrubs.
While we love JD, Turk and co. the show wouldn't have been the incredible heart-warming comedy that it was without the secondary characters that only feature in an episode or two..
Here are 11 of the best...
Michael J. Fox
My Catalyst/My Porcelain God, Season 9
Fox played Dr. Kevin Casey who, initially, the gang look up to until they realise he's got his own issues. Fox starred on the show for two episodes, one of which featured the iconic epiphany toilet. The Back to the Future actor was praised for his portrayal of an OCD sufferer on the show.
Writer Bill Lawrence added the OCD to cover up Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's Disease.

My Lawyer's in Love - My Last Words, Season 8
Parks and Recreation's Tom wasn't hugely known before he starred on the show, but his portrayal of Big Ed was pretty hilarious. Ansari played an intern who isn't quite cut out to be a doctor, but he has other strengths such as an intense knowledge of Lost and his ability to make trends that quickly get picked up.
Ed doesn't last too long due to his lack of interest, but leaves his legacy with some memorable catchphrases.

Moore plays the incredibly clumsy, ditzy Julie, who is set up with JD by his patient who is her great-aunt. While Julie and JD have a lot in common (their scooters, their love of Harry Potter and unicorns) they break up because she isn't ready for a serious relationship. Zach Braff was dating Moore in real life when she guest starred.

My Unicorn, Season 4
Perry plays Murray, the son of one of JD's patients who needs a kidney transplant. Murray is reluctant to help his Dad because he wasn't around much and also because he gave him an old man's name. Even though it is revealed that Gregory isn't Murray's biological father, he gives him a kidney after all because he was a 'decent father'.
Matthew Perry also directed this episode, while his father was played by his real life dad.
