Max Greenfield Set for 'Will & Grace' Revival
Will & Grace is getting a taste of New Girl.
Series star Max Greenfield is set to guest-star in an upcoming episode of the NBC revival, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The Emmy-nominated actor will appear in the same episode as returning guest and fan-favorite Leslie Jordan, best known for his role as Karen's frenemy Beverley Leslie.
No details are available on Greenfield's role or the episode.
Other guest stars for the revival include Jane Lynch, Andrew Rannells and Kyle Bornheimer, as well as returning actors Harry Connick Jr., Bobby Cannavale and Minnie Driver.
Jordan's return comes after he was the one to prematurely spilled the beans on the revival, saying it was "absolutely" happening, on a radio show in late December 2016, just weeks before the show was officially ordered by NBC. It has since been expanded to a 16-episode first season as well as a 13-episode second season.
Despite his series-regular role on New Girl — which will return sometime midseason for an eight-episode seventh and final season — Greenfield has appeared on a multitude of other shows, including American Horror Story, the upcoming American Crime Story: Versace and The Mindy Project. The actor, whose film credits include The Big Short and My Name Is Doris, is repped by WME and Untitled Entertainment.
Jordan, whose credits also include American Horror Story as well as The Help and Boston Legal, is repped by BRS/Gage Talent Agency.
Will & Grace airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
