    I posted this topic a few months ago and never really got an answer. Anyway, back in like September, Zach Braff said in an interview that David Cross would be guest starring on Scrubs this season and it was 90% likely he'd be playing Tobias Funke. I havent heard or been able to find any info on Cross guest starring (let alone guest starring as Tobias) since September. Has anyone heard anything about this? Did it just fall through?

    Wasn't he also supposedly going to be on The O.C. once, and that fell through? I think those were all just wishful rumors.

    That would be one of the best scrubs episodes to see David cross play as tobias again but i highly doubt id happen because don't they have to get legal rights and permission from fox or whoever owns the rights to arrested development to use one of their characters in an NBC show, but hey i hope I'm wrong and one day hopefully see tobias on scrubs

    Mitch Hurwitz owns the rights to Arrested Development and all the characters; and at the time of the article I read, he was going to let the Scrubs writers use Tobias Funke

    Unfortunately, I think that may've been said as a joke or wishful thinking. I wouldn't mind seeing Tobias on Scrubs, that'd be quite awesome, but crossovers are rarely done on canceled/ended shows (however, I recall reading that Sophia from the Golden Girls cameoed on a late 90s show years after the Golden Girls was canceled, so it's certainly possible.) But I think it wasn't meant seriously, unfortunately.
