NBC's Will & Grace is returning to TV this fall with a few big guest stars, including Scranton's own Olympic medalist, Adam Rippon.
Rippon will appear in an upcoming episode of the sitcom's second season since its reboot last year, according to a release. Also appearing in the episode will be Magic Mike's Matt Bomer, who will play a "smooth-talking, self-satisfied TV news anchor" who dates Eric McCormack's Will. Actress Minnie Driver will reprise her role as Lorraine Fisher, arch-enemy to Karen, who is played by Megan Mullally.
Other guest stars announced for the season include David Schwimmer as the love interest of Debra Messing's Grace, Chelsea Handler, Jon Cryer and Alec Baldwin.
"Am I a talented actor now?" Rippon wrote in an Instagram story post showing him with Bomer.
Rippon's appearance on the show comes following a run at the 2018 Winter Olympics in which he took home a bronze medal in figure skating. Since then, he has become a media darling, and recently was included in the Time 100 List of Most Influential people, as well as the Bleacher Report's list of the 50 most influential people in sports culture. With his appearance in PyeongChang, Rippon became the first openly gay athlete to represent the U.S, in Olympic competition.
Will & Grace returned to NBC last September after its original premiere in 1998. Including the series' initial eight-season run, Will & Grace has been nominated for 88 Emmy Awards.
