In the new cover of Entertainment Weekly, the cast of Will & Grace have gotten together and let their inner leather daddy out for all the world to see!
Sure, you may think the cover is pretty tame. Maybe next time we will see them in ass-less chaps and a sling. But we love the inspiration here.
On September 28, Will, Grace, Jack and Karen will reunite for 12 episodes of the comedy that lasted eight seasons on NBC. The revival is being praised as one of the most highly-anticipated happenings on TV this upcoming season.
“I want to make other people laugh right now,” Debra Messing said in an interview with EW. “That’s the reason why I wanted to come back. Because I was like, ‘I really need to laugh.'”
Eric McCormack adds: “I think while we won’t back away from this existence at the moment, we will also be overcoming it and having a lot of fun.”
“We never took on the subject of gay men in America,” creator Max Mutchnick says. “We never did that in a heavy way. We just managed it the way we managed our lives.”
“The strangest thing about it is how comfortable and natural everybody has been with the whole thing,” Mutchnick tells EW. “We did this having not seen each other for 10 years and then decided one day to show up to work and got right back to it. Here we are. That’s a pretty bizarre thing.”
Sean Hayes continues: “Everything that happens in the world is ancillary to their lives but it’s not the focal point. This show is not about Trump or Hillary Clinton. It’s about us.”
