Eric McCormack Says He 'Wouldn't Get Anywhere Near' His 'Will & Grace' Role Today

Eric McCormack has opened up about how he believes a gay actor “would probably” play his gay role in Will & Grace, if casting happened in 2018.

“I probably wouldn’t get anywhere near this role,” the 55-year-old actor told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I think it wasn’t a terrible thing in 1998 that a straight guy played the role, but I’m glad that times are changing, and I’m glad that nowadays a Will Truman would probably be cast with someone who is gay,” Eric added. “But does that mean that now when you walk into a casting room you have to state whether you are straight or gay? I don’t know.”
