Zach Braff on Scrubs, Fletch and Being Goofy

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Don't worry, fans, this season of Scrubs is gonna be REALLY funny.

Not that it would be possible for the shananigans of JD, Turk, Dr. Cox and the crew not to be hilarious, but star Zach Braff is reassuring anyway.

"We just finished the first episode and there's lots of prosthetic make-up in the first episode. Last year, we sort of got really silly and random, and we call it the stoner humor. We did a little more of that, and the fans loved it. We had our best ratings ever. The feeling is this will probably be the last year, so we're all just sort of going for it," Braff said while promoting his new film, The Last Kiss.

As far as guest appearances go, Braff is really hoping to get a former Arrested Development character on. So are we, Zach. So are we.

"The one person I want right now is David Cross. I wanted David Cross to come on as Tobias Funke ... I love that character, and the fact that character is over for good, I want him to at least have one more little life."

Besides working on Scrubs, Braff has been rumored to play Fletch in Fletch Won, which predates the first seven books in the series. It follows the early days of the title character's journalism career as a junior reporter in his 20's.

"I don't know. Bill Lawrence is definitely writing and directing Fletch, and there's a good chance I'll do it ... The books aren't as wacky and silly as the Chevy Chase movies were, so there was talk for awhile of going back to the books and not having that level of comedy in them, and Bill and I both disagreed.

"That's what made the movie so great. It's one of the most quoted movies ever, especially by guys. Why would you not tap back into what's funny about that?"

In the meantime, The Last Kiss opens on Friday, September 15.

Hey! According to rumors, that's the day after Britney Spears gives birth to her second baby. So that's nice.
