John C. McGinley talks about new film 'Get A Job'

"Life after college graduation is not exactly going as planned for ‘Will’ (Miles Teller) and ‘Jillian’ (Anna Kendrick) who find themselves lost in a sea of increasingly strange jobs. But with help from their family, friends and coworkers they soon discover that the most important (and hilarious) adventures are the ones that we don't see coming."

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."

He recently starred for two seasons in TBS’s workplace comedy series “Ground Floor,” which reunited him with creator Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs”).  John C. played ‘Mr. Mansfield,’ the critical boss to hot-shot young banker ‘Brody’ (Skylar Austin).

For the big screen, John C. has completed production on the feature films “The Belko Experiment” and “Rounding Third.”  He recently received critical acclaim for his role as Brooklyn Dodgers’ radio broadcaster ‘Red Barber’ in Warner Bros.’ "42," the life story of Jackie Robinson and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The film is now available on DVD. 

John C. received stellar reviews for his starring performance as ‘Dave Moss’ in the Broadway revival of David Mamet’s acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Glengarry Glen Ross.”  According to Newsday, “John C. McGinley is especially dazzling as the hothead who plans the office crime.”  The play also stars Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale and ran through January 20, 2013.

John C. is an audience favorite for his hilarious portrayal of 'Dr. Perry Cox' in the Emmy-nominated medical comedy series, "Scrubs," which ended its successful nine season run in 2010.  He most recently returned to television with a memorable arc on USA Networks’ hit drama series “Burn Notice.”  Joining season 6, John C. played the recurring role of ‘Tom Card,’ the CIA training officer who taught ‘Michael Weston’ (Jeffrey Donovan) everything he knows.
