Former Scrubs’ star Ken Jenkins – who played the infamous Dr Kelso – reunites with some of his former workmates when he joins the cast of Courtney Cox’s Cougar Town.

In Tuesday’s Halloween special on Sky Living, Jules’ father Chick (Jenkins) arrives in town for the festivities and she decides to pull out all the stops to bond with him, despite his apparent lack of enthusiasm.

The Scrubs’ reunion includes Christa Miller (who plays Ellie) and her husband Bill Lawrence, who was the creator of Scrubs and is now the brains behind Cougar Town.

‘Ken's a Kentucky guy,’ Bill Lawrence told TV Squad. ‘We're playing Courteney's dad as a kind of a Southern good ol’ boy, and Ken will actually get to play a little bit more of what he's actually like.

‘The guy's a great character actor,’ he added, ‘and he was a dramatic actor and a Broadway guy long before I met him.’
