On Jack — which stars Law & Order: SVU vet Chris Meloni as a suburban dad who becomes a full-time parent when his wife decides to go to law school — Flynn will appear in one episode playing a high-school wrestling coach who butts heads with Meloni’s title character.

Lawrence and Flynn, of course, worked together for nearly a decade on Scrubs.

Surviving Jack is currently warming Fox’s bench in anticipation of a midseason launch.
