Braff Speaks On Scrubs Exit

Actor ZACH BRAFF has confirmed his exit from TV comedy SCRUBS, confessing he feels free now that he's quit his role as DR. JOHN 'J.D.' DORIAN.
The news ends long-running rumours he is leaving the hit show, along with creator Bill Lawrence and co-star Judy Reyes, after the series' eighth season, which premieres in the U.S. in January (09).
And Braff can't wait to branch out of TV and try new movie roles, because he always felt restricted while contracted to the programme.
He says, "(I left Scrubs because) there's so much I want to do with my life. (It was) the most amazing experience of my life, but when you work on a television series, they own you."
Braff has already started to make full use of his newfound freedom - he's travelled to Tel Aviv, Israel and even gained his pilot's licence - things he doubts the show's insurers would have allowed him to do.
He adds, "I don't think they'd let me come here (to Tel Aviv). They wouldn't let me take flying lessons."
