15 Years After Friends, David Schwimmer Is Starring on Another Hit NBC Sitcom
David Schwimmer will be returning to NBC's Must See TV lineup! The actor is set to star in a recurring role on Will & Grace this upcoming season, according to Deadline. Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller on the hit show Friends from 1994 to 2004, will play Grace (Debra Messing)'s latest love interest in a "five-episode arc," the outlet reported.
The second season of the successful reboot will premiere in the Fall. In March, NBC also renewed the Will & Grace revival for an 18-episode third season. Schwimmer's role marks his return to network TV since Friends; his last small-screen project was the crime drama The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and his portrayal of the late Robert Kardashian earned him an Emmy nomination in 2016. One question: will they give his Will & Grace character a pet monkey?
