Question: Any good guest stars besides Mandy Moore on Scrubs this season?
Answer: Just Curb Your Enthusiasm's Cheryl Hines, but that's old news. Bill Lawrence tells me that "the biggest change people will see [when the show returns Jan. 3] is that the characters have aged. Instead of being young interns, now they're more teachers. So, Dr. Cox is more of an annoyed colleague than a boss." Other Season 5 highlights include J.D. moving in with Elliot, "but not as a romantic thing, because I'm not doing that anymore. And Turk and Carla are trying to have a kid." And getting back to Moore, Bill says Zach Braff's real-life love, who'll play (surprise!) a "serious" love interest for J.D., will get a chance to showcase her never-before-seen broad comedy chops. "We abused the hell out of her. We threw her off of buildings, over railings and just made a giant physical comedy smorgasbord."
