Series regular role a possibility for Graham

Rollergirl could be skating over to ‘Scrubs.’

Thesp Heather Graham, whose pics include “Boogie Nights,” “Bowfinger” and “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,” is in talks to join the cast of the NBC medical laffer. It’s unclear how many episodes Graham will appear in, though a series regular role is a possibility, according to a published report.

“She’d play an attending shrink who comes in and (exposes) everyone’s flaws and all their bullshit,” “Scrubs” exec producer Bill Lawrence told TV “The character’s a real catalyst to mess things up for everybody.”

An NBC spokeswoman declined comment on Graham; a rep for Touchstone, which produces “Scrubs,” didn’t return calls.
