For more than a decade, MADtv provided an edgier sketch-comedy alternative to staid Saturday Night Live tropes. Michael McDonald was one of the series’ longest tenured cast members and notably played the parts of Stuart “Look what I can do!” Larkin and the Zima-obsessed Rusty Miller. Even during his time at MADtv, McDonald explored other skill sets, directing and guesting the hospital laugh-fest Scrubs, which he later parlayed into writing, directing, and producing episodes of ABC’s sorely misunderstood Cougar Town.
