NBC's hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine Nine is coming to a close after nearly a decade on the air. Our Arthur Kade sat down with John C. McGinley who just joined the cast.

McGinley joins Brooklyn Nine Nine as an antagonist of sorts. His character, Frank O'Sullivan, is the head of the patrolmen's union and he's dead-set on excusing misbehavior. Peralta and Holt (played by Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, respectively) have made it their mission to call out bad cops. So the introduction of someone like O'Sullivan puts a wrench in their plans.

McGinley praised Brooklyn Nine Nine for its tight writing. He also gave props to his castmates, saying that “what they produce is astonishing.” McGinley is an acting veteran, appearing in countless films like Office Space, Wall Street, and, Platoon but most people recognize him as Dr. Cox from the sitcom Scrubs. During their conversation, Kade brought up the possibility of a Scrubs revival. To which McGinley replied:

“I wouldn’t be surprised if at the end of Ted Lasso which the creator of Scrubs is also the creator of, Billy Lawrence. I wouldn’t be surprised if, once Billy is finished with the three year run of Ted Lasso which is what he said it is, if he entertains that notion.”

Who knows? Maybe there’s a Scrubs revival in the near future!
