After teasing a special project yesterday, Hamptonite Debra Messing and Will & Grace cast mates Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes have released what they’ve been working on: a 10-minute “special episode” of Will & Grace, in which the characters talk about the upcoming Presidential campaign. In what shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, the episode strongly favors candidate Hillary Clinton is squarely against Donald Trump. The video also pokes fun at Ann Coulter, Ryan Lochte, Hamilton and other pop culture topics. The video ends with the hashtag #VoteHoney.
Will & Grace aired for 8 seasons on NBC from 1998–2006 and focused on two best friends living together in Manhattan. Will (McCormack), an openly gay attorney, often played “straight man” to the more zany Grace (Messing), an interior designer. Their two friends, socialite Karen (Mullally) and out-of-work actor Jack (Hayes), were portrayed as wacky foils to Will and Grace, getting into ridiculous and hilarious hijinks. Will & Grace is considered to be one of the pioneers in bringing LGBT issues to mainstream media, so it’s no surprise that they’re tackling another serious issue with delightful comedy.
