Better clear the corridors at Sacred Heart Hospital; here comes Rollergirl. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Heather Graham is in talks to join the cast of ”Scrubs.” She would play an offbeat therapist who brings chaos into the lives of the other doctors at the hospital.

The role would mark the first regular TV gig for the ”Boogie Nights” and ”Austin Powers” actress since playing Kyle MacLachlan’s love interest on the second season of ”Twin Peaks” in 1990-91. If she takes the NBC sitcom job, there’ll be a familiar face on the hospital staff. Sarah Chalke, who plays Elliot, has spent the last month acting alongside Graham in the soon-to-wrap indie film ”Cake,” in which Graham plays a journalist who gets a new perspective on love when she takes over her father’s wedding magazine.
