Sarah Chalke

Casting Roundup: Sarah Chalke on 'Cougar Town,' Plus 'Community,' 'Glee' & More

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 10th 2011 5:30PM
'Scrubs star' Sarah Chalke is headed to 'Cougar Town.' TVLine reports that Chalke will be joining the wine-soaked ABC comedy in a recurring role as Bobby's photography professor and love interest.

It's a reunion for Chalke and Bill Lawrence, the co-creator of both 'Scrubs' and 'Cougar Town.' Lawrence has steadily been recruiting 'Scrubs' actors for his new show -- so far he's nabbed Ken Jenkins, Sam Lloyd, Robert Clendenin, Zach Braff and Scott Foley to serve double-duty.

In other TV casting news, we're about to meet the parents on 'Community', 'Glee' and 'Nikita.' Check out the details after the jump.

Review: 'Mad Love' Has a Good Cast, But the CBS Comedy Doesn't Use It Well

by Maureen Ryan, posted Feb 14th 2011 3:00PM
Most of what you'll see in the new comedy 'Mad Love' (8:30ET Monday, CBS) won't come as a surprise.

Sarah Chalke, who plays New Yorker Kate Swanson, makes the flawless delivery of both comedic and emotional moments look effortless, but that would have been easy to predict after seeing her ace work on 'Scrubs' and 'How I Met Your Mother.'

It's also not surprising that the relatively charisma-free Jason Biggs, who plays Ben Parr, her almost-boyfriend on the relationship-centered sitcom, can't really keep up with Chalke in the charm or comedy departments.

Also not shocking: That Tyler Labine plays essentially the same character he's played on every other show he's ever been on, i.e., the goofy and sometimes gross buddy of the show's male lead.

Sarah Chalke In for Minka Kelly on CBS's 'Mad Love'?

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 4th 2010 9:30PM
Former 'Scrubs' Sarah Chalke may join CBS's 'Mad Love'Deadline Hollywood is reporting that former 'Scrubs' star Sarah Chalke is "in talks to co-star" on the CBS sitcom 'Mad Love,' which also stars Jason Biggs and Tyler Labine.

Chalke would play "Kate," one of four friends in New York looking for romance. Former 'Friday Night Lights' star Minka Kelly was originally slated to play the role.

The move would make sense, since the show was created by former 'Scrubs' writer-producer Matt Tarses. Tarses, who is executive producing with sister Jamie Tarses, was with 'Scrubs' from 2001 to 2005. Chalke played Dr. Elliot Reid, her biggest role since she replaced Alicia Goranson as "Becky" on 'Roseanne' in 1993.

Sarah Chalke Cast as ABC's 'Freshman'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 4th 2010 7:09PM
Sarah ChalkeI had no idea that Arianna Huffington was also producing TV shows along with being in charge of a giant blogging empire. But she's one of the people behind the new ABC series 'Freshman,' along with Greg Malins ('How I Met Your Mother'). The comedy will be set in Washington, D.C. and will be about three young politicians. I guess Huffington is going to produce a show about something she's familiar with, politics and Washington, D.C.

One of those three young politicians will be Sarah Chalke, formerly of 'Scrubs.' Can I tell you how embarrassed I was when 'Scrubs' started that I didn't realize that Chalke was the girl who took over in the role of Becky Conner (from Lecy Goranson, now called Alicia Goranson) on 'Roseanne' for a few seasons? Looking back now it's insanely obvious but I didn't make the connection until a few years after 'Scrubs' started.

Review: Scrubs - Our Stuff Gets Real

Scrubs: Our Stuff Gets Real
(S09E09) While the illustrious boss-man -- AKA Joel Keller -- is off at the TCA Tour stalking creator Bill Lawrence, I have the honor of stepping in and looking at the latest episode of Scrubs. J.D. returned this week, and the opening sequence slipped back to having him hang the final x-ray, rather than Lucy, who took over the last couple of episodes.

With J.D. back, the silliness between him and Turk returned as well, but it didn't dominate the episode as it so often has in the past. It was also nice to see the old Elliot in full neurotic meltdown mode. Plus, the scene at home where she was scarfing down her meat salad instead of making sweet love to J.D. was almost too authentic to real life with a pregnant woman. It was nice to see J.D. being supportive, if frustrated. And at least Cox is there to support his neediness.

Review: Scrubs - Our White Coats / Our Couples

Donald Faison and John C. McGinley in Scrubs: Our Couples
(S09E07 / S09E08)
I don't usually do a joint review when two episodes of a show air in the same night, but both these episodes were so interestingly similar in tone, that I felt it was better to discuss them together than separately. Also, I've got a case of the winter lazies.

But back to that first point: Many of you couldn't understand why I hated the episode on New Year's Day so much; many of you felt that it did a nice job of showcasing the med students as well as a maturing Turk and Elliot. But there was something so off about how those characters were written last week that it didn't sit well with me. This week's episodes showed me why. They also gave me a good indication of the pace and tone that Med School should settle into. Just hope it's not too late.

Review: Scrubs - Our New Girl-Bro

Sarah Chalke and Kerry Bishe in Scrubs: Our New Girl-Bro(S09E06) Wow. Just wow.

I knew the first Zach Braff-free episode of this new version of Scrubs was going to be a bit of a bumpy ride, but I didn't think things would be this bad.

It's not just that the episode was lacking in funny. The established characters were mostly written wrong, exhibiting characteristics we've never really seen before. And the med students -- except for Drew -- were so broadly written that they could have been played by anybody.

No wonder why this episode was buried on New Year's Day.

Review: Scrubs - Our First Day of School (season premiere)

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 1st 2009 10:02PM
Kerry Bishe in Scrubs: Our First Day of School(S09E01) As much as I want to treat Scrubs: Med School as a new series, let's face it: The show is listed everywhere as being Scrubs' ninth season. So that's the way I'm going to treat it until told otherwise. Sound good to you folks?

Anyway, my preview of this new iteration of Scrubs pretty much gave the entire setup, so we can mercifully skip past that and just talk about what was funny, and what wasn't.

Oh, and for those of you who are still hanging on to the story thread that is the Elliot / J.D. relationship, you'll be happy to know that everything's fine there. More after the jump.

Scrubs season nine -- An early look

Eliza Coupe, Donald Faison and Zach Braff in Scrubs: Our Drunk Friend
If you're a regular reader of TV Squad, you probably already know what's going on with the unexpected ninth season of Scrubs. From Bill Lawrence's statement that the eighth season might not be the final one to his detailed descriptions of how the show was going to transition to its new med school setting, you've been given a good idea of how this shift was going to happen.

But one thing we didn't know was the biggest question of all: is it going to be funny?

The answer? A qualified yes. The two episodes ABC sent for review, which air back-to-back tomorrow at 9 PM ET, were definitely funny. But most of the humor came not from the new med students we're supposed to get to know, but from the characters we've known and laughed with for eight years. And for this ninth season to succeed, that ratio will have to even out, and quickly.

Bill Lawrence at the TCA 09 session for Cougar Town Here's the full transcript of the interview I did with Bill Lawrence on the last day of the TCAs. It's goes into some of the financial nitty-gritty of the Scrubs deal and drops a few other details. I also asked him to repeat what was going to go on in the new Scrubs a few times, just so I could understand completely what was going on. Enjoy! The main post, where you can leave your comments, is here.

Well let's start with the obvious. You've been thinking about doing another season of Scrubs for like a year now.
