Watch Cougar Town’s Josh Hopkins Prove He’s the Show’s Musical Genius

Happy Wednesday, Cougar Town aficionados! While there's still a little under six weeks left before the Cul-de-Sac Crew returns to ABC, the good news is that the fourth episode of Vulture's epic mini-series Cougar Town: Writers vs. Actors has arrived, and it's a doozy. In this week's installment, shot in Hawaii where the gang was filming the season-two finale, Josh Hopkins sets out to prove that he writes the lyrics to all of the songs that his character, Grayson, performs on the show. And what better way for a cocky actor to make his case than with a backing track from cocky songsmith R. Kelly? That's right, it's the "Cougar Town (Remix)," guys. Plus, look out for two additional bonuses: an as-yet-unaired clip from a forthcoming episode and a guest appearance by an actor well-known to anyone who watched Scrubs on a regular basis. Be sure to stay tuned till the end for some gratuitous swearing by the show's creators.
