How do you get Zach Braff on ‘Scrubs‘ creator Bill Lawrence’s ‘Cougar Town‘? There’s an app for that!

No, I’m being quite literal. Fancast has learned that Braff will play a role in the Thanksgiving-themed episode of the ABC comedy when Laurie (played by Busy Phillips) busts out a cell phone “app” that features the ‘Scrubs’ alum.

Specifically, the Zach Braff Appetizer App generates ideas for, well, appetizers. So as Laurie repeatedly works the widget, an animated Braff will be seen and heard offering menu suggestions.

Braff’s admitted unusual app-earance (yeah, I had to use that gem again), which is set to air November 24, fulfills a promise Bill Lawrence made this summer, when he told E! Online that “either Sarah Chalke, Zach Braff, John C. McGinley, Donald Faison or Judy Reyes will be on ['Cougar Town'] this year.” Neil Flynn (aka Janitor) isn’t in play, of course, because he currently stars as Mike on ABC’s ‘The Middle.’

Already, ‘Cougar Town’ of course stars onetime ‘Scrubs’ guest Courteney Cox and recurring player Christa Miller, and just this week Ken Jenkins (aka Dr. Kelso) turned up as Jules’ father. The medical comedy also played in the background of a Season 1 episode.

Which ‘Scrubs’ vet would you like to see visit ‘Cougar Town’ next? Perhaps Chalke as a spoiler to Jules’ Graysonship? Faison as a new barfly buddy of Andy’s?
