According to Entertainment Weekly, Cox will play Sacred Heart's new chief of medicine, taking over for the recently retired Dr. Kelso. She's signed up for three episodes so far, and her character is intended to "ruffle feathers," according to EW's source.
A quick survey of the Sugar offices showed that we can all picture Cox playing a doctor — and, in fact, we wondered why she hadn't popped up on any of TV's many other medical shows before. Plus, Scrubs will give her a good chance to show off her comedic chops again, and it can only help the show get some buzz on its new network. And if Dirt showed us one thing, it's that Cox is good at torturing her underlings. Which Sacred Heart staffer can you most easily picture Cox giving a hard time?
