About John C. McGinley

John C. McGinley’s path to stardom is a story that reads like a classic Hollywood script.  While an understudy in New York in the Circle-In-The-Square production of John Patrick Shanley’s Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, he was spotted by director Oliver Stone and soon after was cast in Platoon, the first of a long list of collaborations between Stone and McGinley which includes Wall Street, Talk Radio, Born on the Fourth of July, Nixon and Any Given Sunday.

John C. is an audience favorite for his hilarious portrayal of ‘Dr. Perry Cox’ in the Emmy-nominated medical comedy series, Scrubs, which ran for nine seasons.

John C. currently stars in IFC’s hit half-hour comedy-horror series, Stan Against Evil, on which he also serves as a producer.  He has received much critical acclaim for his starring performance as disgruntled former police sheriff ‘Stanley Miller,’ a sour, aging bulldog who has lost his position as head honcho due to an angry outburst at his wife’s funeral.  When the new sheriff opens his eyes to the plague of angry demons haunting their small New Hampshire town, ‘Stan’ begrudgingly joins an alliance with her to fight them off.  Season 3 is set to debut October 31, 2018.

John resides in Los Angeles and enjoys stand-up paddle surfing, weight lifting and golf. He married Nichole Kessler on April 7, 2007 at the couple’s home in Malibu and they now have two daughters Billie Grace and Kate Aleena, in addition to big brother Max.
