Scrubs vet John C. McGinley is trading in his scalpel for some more heavy duty machinery.

The veteran actor has nabbed a recurring role on the upcoming sixth season of Burn Notice as the CIA training officer who taught Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) everything he knows, The Huffington Post reports.

When McGinley's character, Tom Card, crosses paths with Michael, he is extremely excited to work together again. Although the two lost touch after Michael was burned, Tom always supported Michael's mission to vindicate himself. If they join forces again, Tom' influence at the CIA may help Michael win back the respect he lost when he was burned.

McGinley will first appear in the second episode of Season 6. Aside from his role as Dr. Perry Cox on Scrubs for nine seasons, the actor is known for his roles in Platoon, Wall Street and Office Space.

Burn Notice is set to return sometime this summer on USA.
