'Scrubs' Off-Limit for NBC Stars Masi Oka and Sarah Lancaster


'Scrubs' Off-Limit for NBC Stars Masi Oka and Sarah Lancaster


NBC have banned their stars to make guest-appearances in 'Scrubs' since the show has been bought by rival ABC.

Due to respective commitments to the production house where their TV shows are under, "Heroes" star Masi Oka and "Chuck" actress Sarah Lancaster won't return as guest stars of "Scrubs". It has been months since NBC that own the right to "Heroes" and "Chuck" lost the sitcom "Scrubs" to ABC.

NBC officially ban Oka and Lancaster from recurring their roles in the series that will open a whole new chapter next year in spring. On the decision, "Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence accommodates his disappointment, saying "They (Oka and Lancaster) wanted to do it, but NBC said no. Typical classy stuff," and adding "But (they) should not have been part of that fight. It felt kind of petty to me."

Oka played Franklin, a nerdy Japanese laboratory assistant who had his first appearance in first season while Lancaster portrayed Lisa, an attractive young blonde who ran the Sacred Heart Gift Shop in season 2.

The initial plan was to have all the stars to appear in the season finale of the upcoming season 8. Those guests already on board of the finale are Amy Smart, Nicole Sullivan and Tom Cavanagh. "It was very emotional," an industry insider told Entertainment Weekly. "It should be an incredible finale."

Lawrence once released a statement that the show will stem up to at least 9 seasons despite the main stars' departures. Zach Braff announced that he would end his participation at the end of the eight cycle and Judy Reyes hoped to continue works in feature films and on Broadway.
