This Scrubs star was in a Dublin pub pulling pints last night

He's known mostly as the belligerent Doctor Cox from Scrubs but last night John C McGinley seemed anything but ornery.

Mr McGinley was pictured smiling with staff and pulling pints of Guinness in South William Street's Dakota, apparently as part of celebrations for RTE's new show Exiles.

This seems somewhat bizarre but the 55-year-old star often visits Ireland and is routinely seen out and about. 

"Last night's launch party for RTE2's new show Exile Vancouver got so crazy, we threw Scrubs' Dr Cox (John McGinley) behind the bar to pull some pints," Dakota said on their Facebook page. 

"He lasted about an hour...we were having difficulty getting him to charge the customers."

Here he is trying to speak German, enjoy.
