  • Quotes

    • (Scrubs Casting Director) Brett Benner: (on his casting of Bellamy) The producers wanted us to go after a star, but the star's agent said she just didn't respond to the show. So we brought in Bellamy, and she nailed the audition and got the part. It's really gratifying when we can actually cast the show--when the process actually works. And it's so much better to be creative than just slamming a celebrity into a part, where sometimes it's at the expense of the role, but it gets more people to tune in.
