NBC’s Will & Grace revival has booked another familiar face. (Prepare yourself, Will.)
Bobby Cannavale will reprise his role as Will’s cop ex-boyfriend Vince D’Angelo in the upcoming Season 9. The two-time Emmy winner (Boardwalk Empire, Nurse Jackie) is just the latest W&G alum to return for the much-anticipated revival — debuting Thursday, Sept. 28 at 9/8c — following Minnie Driver’s announced return as Karen’s arch-rival Lorraine last month.
Series star Debra Messing broke the news with an Instagram post from the set:
The news is a bit puzzling, though, since the W&G series finale saw Will happily married to Vince — but NBC has already promised that the bittersweet original ending will be ignored in the revival. So are Will and Vince back together, or still broken up, or what?
Cannavale won the 2005 Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy for his work as Vince. He recently co-starred in Season 2 of Netflix’s Master of None as celebrity chef Jeff, and he’s also set to join the cast of USA’s Mr. Robot in the upcoming third season, debuting in October.
