Aziz Ansari is probably most popular for his acting in Parks and Recreation, but he too has a history on the NBC comedy. In 2009 Ansari briefly contributed to the set before moving on to focus on his other projects. Ansari eventually went on to work on his own Netflix show.

Michael J. Fox and Colin Farrell are two other talented actors to come on the series. These are just a few of the many famous and acclaimed celebrities that took on guest appearances over the years.

Donald Faison, one of the show’s main stars, was speaking about Reynold’s time on Scrubs and said: “I like to think we had him on the show before he was a big, romantic comedy star or a big action star. It’s always cool to see someone go from actor to movie star.”

Though Reynolds wasn’t unheard of when he appeared on Scrubs, his career has come such a long way since then.
