Biography

Donald Faison began acting on stage at age 5 but didn't appear in his first movie, Juice, until his late teens. After a succession of small film parts, he made a big impression in the comedy Clueless and reprised his role on the spin-off TV series. Although Faison enjoyed high-profile stints on Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Felicity, he didn't become a star until he landed the role of a cocky doctor on the wacky sitcom Scrubs.
