Michael Ausiello Isn’t a Doctor, Plays One on TV

FBLA loves press releases. TV Guide’s hardworking Julie Farin alerted us to this groundbreaking morsel:

TV Guide’s ubiquitous columnist Michael Ausiello (Ask Ausiello, The Ausiello Report) makes a cameo appearance as an obstetrician on the NBC comedy Scrubs on Thursday, February 8 at 9 PM ET/PT, where he performs an ultrasound on Elizabeth Banks’ expectant Dr. Kim character in a scene that has “a cool trick ending,” according to Banks.

Does the trick involve handcuffs and a ball gag?

After wrapping the scene, the actress told Ausiello, “I felt like you were a real doctor. I mean, you’re wearing the outfit, you said all the right things…I was very impressed.”

Boy, is Banks easy to fool or what? Just get yourself some gel lubricant and a dingy scrub suit, and you can give her a pelvic, anytime, anyplace.

While on the set, Scrubs star Zach Braff told Ausiello that he may be open to the idea of a potential seventh season. “Everyone’s been procrastinating in making the decision–myself included,” he revealed. And what about the real name of the Janitor? Neil Flynn hinted, “We’re not going to find out until possibly the last episode.”

How about Isaiah? Isaiah Washington makes a good name for the janitor.
