With exception to a special holiday episode airing Tuesday, December 5, Will & Grace is on hiatus until Thursday, January 4, 2018. When it returns in the new year, we can expect plenty more guest stars. Entertainment Weekly just learned of another name being added to the roster.
Dax Shepard, aka Mr. Kristen Bell, is set to appear in a future episode. No details of his role are known, which is pretty par for the course when newbies have been announced. His appearance is sort of a homecoming for the 42-year-old actor. He starred in the peacock network drama, Parenthood, for six seasons.
Shepard is just the latest notable guest star. Ben Platt, Max Greenfield, Jane Lynch, Andrew Rannells, Minnie Driver, Harry Connick, Jr. and Leslie Jordan have already appeared with Bobby Cannavale and Molly Shannon still scheduled to pop up in the revival.
What do you think of this latest guest star? Which episode of Will & Grace have you enjoyed the most this season? For me, it’s the gay conversion camp episode and the one where Will and Jack dated younger guys. Share your thoughts below.
