Fletch Won, the Fletch prequel that Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence is working on, won’t be starring his beloved Dr. Dorian – Zach Braff has dropped out of the project. "Zach is writing and directing his own film [Open Hearts] at Paramount," Lawrence told TV Guide. "I’m very happy for him. We were looking forward to doing this thing together, but when you get an opportunity like that, you’ve got to take it."
I find myself unable to care either way. As one of Braff’s last hetero male defenders, even I have come to a point where I find the actor unctuous in the extreme, and after Scrubs’ latest season of almost no laughs, I can’t find the ability to muster must interest in anything related to that show any longer.
Lawrence is now in NYC looking for a new Fletch. I’d recommend Trevor Moore from The Whitest Kids U Know, because he has that same pompous charm that Chevy Chase had, but they’re probably looking for a bigger name.
