He stars as the title character in IFC's scripted comedy-horror series, "Stan Against Evil," on which he also serves as a producer. John C. stars as disgruntled former police sheriff 'Stanley Miller,' a sour, aging bulldog who has recently lost his position as head honcho due to an angry outburst at his wife's funeral.

John C. McGinley in Platoon (1986)

Describes Dr. Cox, his character on Scrubs (2001), as "a hard-ass with a heart of gold" in the tradition of Danny DeVito's Louie DiPalma on Taxi (1978) and Edward Asner's Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970). Many of his co-stars say the same of him, that while he may seem intimidating at first he is very talented and great to work with.

John C. McGinley in Wall Street (1987)

On the special edition DVD of Office Space (1999), writer/director Mike Judge and the cast reveal that McGinley improvised much of his character's praise of Michael Bolton. Several outtakes are shown. They also said that McGinley was intimidating to work with, which contributed to the character he played.

Charlie Sheen and John C. McGinley in Wall Street (1987)

On Scrubs (2001), his character Dr. Cox's habit of referring to J.D. ( Zach Braff) by girls' names was put in the show after the writers noticed McGinley doing it to Braff. He claims to do this to all of his friends.
