In what seems like a 90's ere dream mashup, actor and Friends legend David Schwimmer will once again flex his comedy chops on NBC's reunion of Will & Grace.
Schwimmer is said to have signed on for five episodes as a love interest for Grace, played by Debra Messing. It has been awhile since anyone has since Ross, er Schwimmer in a comedic role. The actor, director and producer has recenlty focused on dramatic roles such as The People v. O.J. Simpson.
Schwimmer isn't the only big name appearing in the new season. Chelsea Handler, Alec Baldwin and Mary McCormack have all been listed as guest-stars for season 2.
Will & Grace has already been picked up for season 3, so we can breath easy knowing Jack, Karen and the gang won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
Actor Sean Hayes who plays much beloved Jack, took to Twitter to announce the news.
