Q: You have more of a raspy sound as your “Ground Floor” character, banking-firm chief Remington Mansfield. Was that intended from the start?

A: I heard Daniel Day-Lewis talking about this, with “Lincoln.” He said the first thing he wanted to find was the president’s voice, and I know what he meant.

The studio came to me during the pilot and said, “Do you need a voice doctor?” and I said, “No! This is the guy you’re going to get for, hopefully, 10 years.” And then they left me alone.

Q: Do you enjoy having a bit more freedom with language on basic cable than you did during the broadcast run of “Scrubs?”

A: We were read this whole standards-and-practices thing, and I think the writers take liberties, but not at the risk of being crass. I have no interest in being associated with something that’s crass or rude.

Q: How is working with your new series ensemble, compared to the previous one?

A: Skylar (Astin) is very similar to Zach (Braff) in some ways -- they’re both incredibly skilled actors -- and Briga (Heelan) reminds me somewhat of Sarah (Chalke), because they both have photographic memories. They look at the rewrites and know them 15 seconds later.

And Rory (Scovel) is kind of like Neil (Flynn), who played the janitor on “Scrubs,” because they both come from improv and stand-up. I haven’t told that to any of them, but those are high compliments.
