McGinley spoke to students in the Leavey Auditorium on how young Hollywood has the power to make a change through what they write and produce. The actor and advocate, best known for his role on the hit television show Scrubs, is actively involved in the campaign. Just for a second. McGinley encouraged students at the event to use his blogging and social media efforts as a model for how they should go about raising awareness. McGinley became interested in the movement 17 years ago, when his son Max was born with Down syndrome. Since then, he has been an active participant in a variety of movements to educate the public on Down syndrome and other conditions. He cited the Special Olympic games in particular.

What if the citizens of Prosperity, a frontier town in the Old West, got fed up with their pioneer existence and decided to head back East? And what if they chose for the leader of their wagon train a drunken tub of a man who can barely tell left from right? That is the less-than-scintillating premise of "Wagons East! That, unfortunately, is its only distinction. Directed by Peter Markle, from a screenplay by Matthew Carlson, this series of loosely strung-together gags is so desperate for humor that it falls back on jokes about flatulence and penis size.
That perfect kicker was improvised by Candy on the set, so clearly the great comic had some of his best instincts intact to the end. The script takes off from an all-too-promisingly rich premise: The pioneers of a Western town--fed up with bank robberies, a lack of culture and dust in general--become the first Americans to turn tail and head back east en masse. Director Peter Markle is a little too busy balancing this scattershot ensemble to devote quality time to leads Lewis and Candy, who both seem unnaturally tamed.
