Not Messing around

Debra Messing opens up about how the new “Will & Grace” became reality


Seth Myers is asking Debra Messing all the tough questions regarding a certain reboot of a certain late ’90s-early-aughts sitcom about a certain gay man and his bff.

You know, like: “Was it fun?”

Whoa there Woodward, let the lady take a breath before you start in on your gotcha journalism.

“We were stunned at how fun it was,” Messing courageously replies. She’ll be playing the titular “Grace” opposite Eric McCormack’s “Will” in NBC’s upcoming Will & Grace episodes.

The host did move on to some more interesting revelations, though, like how the new project came together. In a word: Trump.

Before the election, you may remember the W&G gang joining forces for a short skit about the state of our political and social landscape. Well, it was a hit.

“Because that little skit got 7 million views – NBC, they were like, ‘wait a second,’” Messing explains in the above interview.
