John C. McGinley

Highest Rated: 88% A Midnight Clear (1992)

Lowest Rated: Not Available

Birthday: Aug 3, 1959

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

A charismatic, high-energy supporting actor and occasional lead in countless features, John C. McGinley was a familiar face to audiences thanks to films like "Platoon" (1986"), "Wall Street" (1987), the TV movie "Intensity" (Fox, 1997) and "Any Given Sunday" (1999). However, his most memorable character was that of Dr. Perry Cox, the tough-as-nails Chief of Medicine on "Scrubs" (NBC/ABC, 2001-2010). The role, along with a memorable performance in the cult favorite "Office Space" (1999) elevated McGinley from character actor to comic standout, a title he wielded effectively in "Wild Hogs" (2007) and "Are We Done Yet?" (2007). A versatile and immensely likable screen presence, he was a favorite among silver and small screen viewers for over two decades.
