Jennifer Lopez is the latest former guest star to book a return to Will & Grace. According to Vanity Fair, the 48-year-old superstar will be doing double duty. She’ll not only play herself, but also play her Shades of Blue character, detective Harlee Santos. Ooooh, I’m intrigued.
Lopez appeared in three episodes during the NBC sitcom’s original run. All three times she played herself, first performing at Karen’s (Megan Mullally) wedding to Lyle Finster (John Cleese) during the Season 6 finale. She then returned for the Season 7 premiere. Jack (Sean Hayes) filled in as one of her backup dancers and apparently, J.Lo grew up with Rosario (Shelley Morrison) in the Bronx.
No word on when Lopez’s new episode will air, but I can’t wait. Until then, check out a couple of clips from her previous appearances. I tried looking for the one where Jack danced with Jennifer but couldn’t find it.
