Alexander star Colin Farrell still has a few worlds left to conquer. One is that of American primetime TV, where he’ll make his debut on Jan. 25 as a guest star on Scrubs, Variety reports. Farrell, who got his start on TV (on the BBC series Ballykissangel, apparently landed the gig through his friendship with Scrubs star Zach Braff. The role shouldn’t be too much of a stretch; Variety describes the character, named Billy Callahan, as an unruly Irishman.
