Sam Lloyd, best known for his role as Ted Buckland on the sitcom series 'Scrubs', has died at the age of 56.
Lloyd's career ranged from appearances in shows like 'The West Wing', 'Seinfeld', 'Malcolm In The Middle' and 'Modern Family', however his role as Ted Buckland in 'Scrubs' was his most well-known and celebrated role.
The actor passed away from cancer, which was first diagnosed just a couple of weeks after his wife gave birth to his first son. Lloyd's fellow actors on 'Scrubs', such as Zach Braff and Sarah Chalke, led tributes on Twitter to his passing. "Sam Lloyd made me crack up and break character every single time we did a scene together," Braff tweeted. "He could not have been a kinder man. I will forever cherish the time I had with you, Sammy."

As well as his comedic work, Lloyd was a musician and often led the show's acapella group, The Blanks, in song. One of the show's most recognisable moments was a rendition of Outkast's 'Hey Ya', where the band picked up instruments in years.
Here's that scene.
