Shohreh Aghdashloo in Will & Grace

Shohreh Aghdashloo in Will & Grace

"Cowboys and Iranians" Synopsis :: An ecstatic Jack (Sean Hayes) coerces Will (Eric McCormack) into coming out with him to a gay cowboy bar to meet his new boyfriend Travis. Will soon discovers that Travis is not as perfect as he seems and steps up to defend Jack’s honor, which eventually leads to a raucous event – a bar fight.

53-year-old Iranian actress Shohreh Aghdashloo is one of my favorite actresses of all time.  She caught my attention in her breakout role in 24 last season as Dina Araz, wife of Muslim terrorist mastermind Navi Araz (Nestor Serrano) but has also starred alongside Jennifer Connelly and Ben Kingsley in Vadim Perelman’s House of Sand and Fog. Will & Grace episode "Cowboys and Iranians" airs this Thursday, March 23 on NBC (8-8:30 p.m. ET).  If Shohreh‘s comedic timing is half as good as her acting chops in dramatic roles, we’re all in for a treat.  More pictures in the gallery!

    TerrorMom! She is so beautiful and talented. If I had my way, she’d be in every TV show, not just the crappy aging dinosaurs on NBC. Love her!

    Yep, she’s got class. I liked her in House of Sand and Fog (although I didn’t like the movie). Nice to see her getting work. Looks like she’s starring in an episode of ER as well.

    I wish people who like her could watch Soote Delan, her famouse Persian movie. She played in this film and no one can forget this film and her play after watching it. (Shohre jan age ino mikhooni ma behet eftekhar mikonim va montazere didane movafaghyat haye bishtare to hastim, Hatman khodet midooni ke cheghad vaghti dar kenare setare haye maroof bazi mikoni va ma inja be doostaye kharejimoon neshoonet midim be khodemoon baraye dashtane honarmandi mesle to maghroor mishim .)
