Modern viewers will be pleasantly surprised when Dr. Paul Stubbs of TNG’s “Evolution” turns out to be none other than a guest turn by cranky Dr. Bob Kelso from the NBC sitcom Scrubs. Actor Ken Jenkins had been a working actor all his life, of course, and his turn on TNG came 11 years before Scrub’s premiere. Starring and recurring roles on Wiseguy and Homefront also top the resume of the 1940 native of Dayton, Ohio, which most recently features a recurring role on the series Cougar Town as the father of Jules, played by series star Courteney Cox.
