Six episodes in and we’re still trying our best to get used to the new cast of ABC’s Scrubs. But to make that transition easier, the casting department has brought in Dave Franco, whose co-stars believe he’s better suited to a teen drama instead of this.
Still, he’s making his mark on the comedy series as Cole Aaronson, an entitled and cocky med student. He’s had his share of films in the past, but this is his biggest project yet. What’s interesting is that he believes his personality’s nowhere near his character’s, even though he’s able to portray him so convincingly.
According to the North Bay Nugget, Dave Franco explains how Cole has put up a faÃ§ade to keep others from finding him vulnerable. “As the season progresses, you learn about his relationship with his parents, which a lot of his attitude stems from,” the Scrubs star said.
“At the same time, you see that he is a vulnerable kid. With all that said, he puts on an arrogant front, but at the same time, it’s obvious that he’s not really this guy. He is harmless, when it’s all said and done.”
But despite the character’s positive traits, Dave Franco asserts that he and Cole are no similar. “I like to believe that I’m nothing like this character. I don’t know why it comes easily to me. I like to believe I’m a pretty friendly, gracious person, and maybe it’s just my desire to be an a– that I never am.”
Who Dave Franco is, exactly, is more than actor James Franco’s kid brother. The two of them have worked together in the past, sharing experiences and lessons in the industry.
“He’s let me figure out things for myself, learn from my own mistakes. But at the same time, if there is anything I ever do need to know about acting, if I have any questions, he’s always there to answer them,” Dave Franco admitted.
“But I love that he doesn’t interfere with my path. I want to have my own career. I don’t want to be James Franco’s little brother for the rest of my life.”
