You may know John C. McGinley from his decade as Dr. Perry Cox on the TV show “Scrubs,” or you may have seen him as Dodgers announcer Red Barber earlier this year in the Jackie Robinson movie, “42.” Now he’s starring in a new sitcom that airs Thursday nights on TBS called “Ground Floor,” and joined me on America Weekend to talk about it. We discussed:
- how he got in on the, um, ground floor of the new series;
- what it was like working with Al Pacino in the Broadway revival of “Glengarry Glen Ross”;
- whether he studied tapes of the real Red Barber in order to play him in “42”;
- working with Eric Bogosian and Oliver Stone on the movie version of “Talk Radio.”
