Happy Birthday, Donald Faison! You first caught my eye in Clueless – a movie that still ranks as one of my favorite movies of all times – playing the ultimately lovable wannabe-thug boyfriend of Stacey Dash’s Dionne. Even though you went on to star in the totally sub-par TV version of the film, you quickly made up for it with the role of goofy surgeon Turk on Scrubs, which by the way, I started liking before everyone else did.
Never a fan of the serious medical dramas, I loved Scrubs for its half-zany, half-heartfelt approach to those intern years. J.D. and Turk’s bromance had more gravitas than the bond between the boys of Entourage – and more romance than what J.D. and Elliot enjoyed at times. The show may have ended its run, but you will forever be remembered in my heart for the genius that was Clueless, and particularly, this hilarious — and NSFW— scene (after the jump):
