Dave Franco joins 'Scrubs'

Actor to play med student as series shifts focus

Dave Franco ("Superbad") has joined ABC's comedy "Scrubs" as a regular.

On "Scrubs," which is shifting its setting to a medical school next season, Franco will play Cole, a charming, conservative, confidently stupid and incredibly entitled medical student whose family donated a wing to the school. With his arrogance and erroneous medical decisions he becomes an enormous irritant to Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley).

Franco's TV series credits include "Privileged," "Do Not Disturb" and "Greek."
