Over a decade after Friends ended, David Schwimmer is returning to sitcom-land with a role in Will & Grace as Grace's new love interest.
Former Friends star David Schwimmer is returning to sitcom land with a role in the next season of Will & Grace, which returns in the autumn.
David, who played Ross Geller on Friends for its entire ten season run (1994 to 2004) has been cast as a new romantic interest for unlucky-in-love interior designer Grace Adler (played by Debra Messing). Let’s hope he can work his magic, since Grace has a reputation for turning some of her past boyfriends gay and her married life ended in divorce!
Filming is currently underway on the new run of Will & Grace, which made a successful return to US TV last year after originally ending in 2006.
Since leaving the role of Ross Geller and the rest of those Friends behind, David has since appeared in episodes of 30 Rock, Episodes, Web Therapy (opposite former Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow) and in 2016 was nominated for an Emmy Award for his role as real-life lawyer Robert Kardashian in the series, American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson.
Will and Grace is shown on Channel 5 in the UK
