Neil Flynn initially auditioned for the role of Dr. Cox (which ultimately went to John C. McGinley).
When executive producer Bill Lawrence asked Neil if he would consider another part - as the nemesis of young doctor J.D. (Zach Braff), he couldn’t refuse.
It wasn't until he was getting ready to graduate from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, that Neil began to think that performing was something he could actually do for a living.
After college, Flynn returned to Chicago and pursued a career in live theatre, where he won many awards for both straight and comedic performances.
He also became adept at comedy improv, gaining a reputation on the local Chicago circuit.
Before too long, Neil broke into films, appearing in the hit Mean Girls, Home Alone 3, The Fugitive, Major League and most recently, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
On TV Neil has performed a variety of roles including C.S.I., Boston Public and NYPD Blue/ He can also be seen popping up in That 70s Show, Seinfeld, Ellen, Family Law and Smallville.
