Let’s hope this is one piece of Hollywood gossip that become a Tinseltown truth:

Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence is hoping to cast Zach Braff in a new installment of the Fletch movie series. He makes an ideal bumbling doctor, why not a clueless detective in a role perfected by Chevy Chase?

Lawrence has inked a deal with the Weinstein Co. to bring the character back to the big screen. Regarding Braff, Lawrence told Reuters:

” [He’s] perfect for the role. I’m going to use all my pull trying to make him do it.”

We’d love to see Braff accept and then everyone can forget the fact that he was totally snubbed for an Emmy Award nomination!
