John C. McGinley may have found himself at the mercy of his company in Glengarry Glen Ross, but now the actor is about to start running things. McGinley will star as a corporate boss in the TBS comedy pilot Ground Floor, according to Deadline.com. The new work place comedy will mark a reunion between McGinley and Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence.
Written by Lawrence and Greg Malins and directed by Gail Mancuso, Ground Floor follows a 29-year-old alpha male who has successfully risen through corporate America. He soon becomes forced to interact with his company’s support staff, a close group of care-free and fun-loving people. McGinley will play the group's boss Mr. Mansfield.
McGinley returned to Broadway after a 26 year absence earlier this season in the Al Pacino-led revival of Glengarry Glen Ross. He is known for his nine season turn as hot-tempered doctor Perry Cox on Scrubs. His film credits include The Rock, Platoon and Seven.
