Jennifer Lopez to star on Will & Grace reboot in dual role
Jennifer Lopez is set to return to Will & Grace as a guest star this season and will appear not only as herself, but also as her Shades of Blue character, NYPD detective Harlee Santos, as well.
The 48-year-old singer will be making her grand return to the NBC comedy as she previously appeared as herself in two episodes at the end of the sixth season of the programme, as well as the premiere of season seven.
In the episodes, she stated that she grew up with Megan Mullally’s character Karen’s maid Rosario in the Bronx, and ended up singing Waiting for Tonight at the wedding of Karen and Lyle, played by John Cleese.
What do you think that Lopez and her Shades of Blue character get up to this time? Will she be checking to make sure Will is still wearing her Glow fragrance or will she arrest Karen for some obscure and very expensive crime? Who knows!
Will & Grace, which has already been renewed for another season, currently airs Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC — with Molly Shannon returning this week as Grace’s looney-tunes neighbor/rival Val Bassett.
As we already said, as well as starring as herself on the episode, Jennifer will also showcase her alter-ego Harlee, known for her short curly hair, and shared a picture of herself in character on the set of the programme on her Instagram page on Wednesday (Jan. 10).
“Look where I am!!! Back on @nbcwillandgrace This time I brought Harlee!! #shadesofblue,” she captioned the selfie, which also featured Megan, as well as show stars Debra Messing and Sean Hayes.
