So last night on Scrubs, Zach Braff as Dr. John ‘J.D.’ Dorian is watching television and identifies The Janitor (Neil Flynn) as the transit cop in The Fugitive going on to analysis him as bitter over having to do janitorial work since acting hasn’t worked out. So, not being one to take things at face value, I look up Neil Flynn in the IMBD and sure enough, he was the transit cop that gets shot in The Fugitive! His credits are fairly lengthy including voiceovers in two Ratchet & Clanks (meaning we hear him everday and never knew it), the voice of XR in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, and most amusing to me, the janitor in It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie.

Kudos to Scrubs and Neil Flynn!

I was watching Mean Girls the other day and was surprised to see him as Lindsay Lohan’s father.

Funny coincidence.

I’ve always enjoyed Neil Flynn’s character on Scrubs. He seems a little type cast into janitor, cop, and father. But I also think he is good at what he does.

We ID’d him on the Fugitive last year … good fun.
