Sean Hayes Returns to TV Comedy in a Series about Gay Fathers
By Brent Ramsey
Former "Will & Grace" star Sean Hayes, whose character Jack McFarland warmed every flamboyantly gay heart in America, has been confirmed to be starring in an NBC comedy series following the lives of two gay men as they raise their 12-year-old child. Hayes will be working with "Rescue Me" co-creator Peter Tolan, according to Entertainment Weekly. The show is currently in development, and the title has yet to be released. I'm thinking it should be "Just Jack -- and Baby." (OK, never mind; that doesn't quite work.)
In other somewhat-not-new news, Hayes will be starring in his first feature role as Larry in 20th Century Fox's Three Stooges, according to Hollywood Reporter. Filming ended in July, and I'm anxiously awaiting its premier to see how this turns out. The Three Stooges -- really? My fingers are crossed for this to be a successful film debut for Hayes, our former Ms. McFarland.
