I distinctly remember at least 2 episodes of Scrubs where Dr. Cox insults Hugh Jackman (implied that Hugh is a bad actor) and does anyone know the reason why?
I haven't been able to find a clear answer on this...

This sounds like fishing for trivia to me. – KeyBrd Basher May 21 '13 at 5:23
Is this a reputable source ? – sharptooth May 21 '13 at 8:27

@KeyBrdBasher: Isn't this whole site about trivia? – djm May 21 '13 at 13:11
@djm: Theres trivia and theres trivia that adds to the plot. This one is the former kind. And I beg to disagree that "this whole site is about trivia". – KeyBrd Basher May 22 '13 at 4:07

Wikipedia has surprisingly thorough articles on Scrubs:

Cox harbors an intense hatred for Hugh Jackman, even going so far as to mention him frequently in his rants about things he hates throughout the series. According to a 2006 interview with McGinley, Cox's reason for hating Jackman may be because Bill Lawrence envies the actor's talent.

This section is sourced as coming from this interview. Bill Lawrence is the creator and show-runner of Scrubs.
