Scrubs really knew how to pick 'em, whether the characters they wrote for them lasted a long time or were merely guest stars. Scrubs is one of my all time favorite shows and they never welched on the characters they wrote for their shows when it came to casting.
Yup thats right people Aziz was an intern named Ed for a few seasons on Scrubs. ACTUALLY at the time of Aziz's initial Parks And Rec casting he was still committed to the program as a series regular. At that point in time instead of keeping him locked in contract the writers of Scrubs wrote his character out immediately so that he could hop on his chance at being a main castmember in a major sitcom show. Now Aziz is one of the largest Comedians in the world as well as being one of the most well-known funnymen out there. He killed it for 7 seasons on Parks And Rec and has done so much to further his career as A Comedy Superstar. Really Ed was the start of his illustrious career.
The little brother of James Franco was all he was at this point in his career. He starred in the 9th season of Scrubs as a really douchey guy named Cole who captured the heart of the series' new leading woman. The only reason his stint on the show was so short-lived was because by the time the 9th season came around most of the main cast was not in the show anymore and critics and fans alike never want a show to change the bulk of its cast 9 seasons in. Also if you have ever seen the Season 8 finale then you know the show should've ended right then. While I actually loved Franco's character and the entire 9th season as a whole it was absolutely not the same without everyone I loved being main stars. But now Franco has starred in many films including both Jump Street films, Fright Night, and Now You See Me and its upcoming sequel.
