The last season of “Will & Grace” left off with not one, but two proposals. With season two just around the corner, fans are itching to know how the cast is feeling about the new twist.
ET Canada correspondent Keshia Chante caught up with stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack to talk all about the shocking finale that left Jack and Estefan, and Will’s mom and Grace’s dad engaged.
“I mean our writers are geniuses,” Messing says of the surprise twist. “It’s too soon to tell. It’s awkward. I would love to see what happens at Thanksgiving.”
McCormack adds, “I mean what does it change? Nothing. But to them it just creeps them out. It’s just not right.”
Although those relationships may be questionable to some fans, there are new ones to root for as “Friends” alum David Schwimmer and Matt Bomer have been slated to play love interests for the leads.
“He is as far away from Ross Gellar as you can possibly get,” Messing tells Keshia about Schwimmer as Grace’s love interest. “He’s a complicated guy and she’s into him. She’s really into him.”
“Will get’s a little Matt Bomer,” McCormack reveals. “He’s so funny in this episode that we kind of want this to happen again so he’ll be coming back.”
The rebooted comedy series is no stranger to adding guest stars to their episodes, and although Messing would love to have Barbra Streisand as her Aunt, McCormack’s dream guest has a Canadian connection.
“I think Will should have a secret fling with Justin Trudeau,” the 55-year-old says. “I know he’s not gay but I just think it would be funny to do, an arc where Will doesn’t say he’s dating a Canadian and Justin will come out of the bedroom and go ‘I got to get back to work’.”
Tune in to the season two premiere of “Will & Grace” on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
