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.
