Sean Hayes is joining 'Smash'

It’s a Will & Grace reunion!

EW has confirmed that Sean Hayes will be appearing on Smash next season.

Hayes himself tweeted the news earlier today, writing, “I’m very excited to be guest-starring in a multi-episode arc on @NBCSmash this season. Back to Broadway…sort of. :)”

Hayes will portray “Terrence Falls, a comedic television and film star who is making his Broadway debut in the musical Liaisons, based on the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses.  Due to a series of comic circumstances, he becomes a major thorn in the side for Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty) and other characters,” NBC said in a press release.

Hayes was most recently seen as Larry in the film version of The Three Stooges. In addition to his Emmy-award-winning portrayal of Jack McFarland on Will & Grace, Hayes was nominated for a 2011 Tony Award for his role in Promises, Promises.

Smash, which has been going through some major casting shake-ups, will begin airing its second season in January.

What is crystal clear, though, is Biden’s endorsement of NBC’s Will & Grace as one of the biggest reasons American public opinion has moved steadily in the direction of approving same-sex nuptials.

“When things really began to change is when the social culture changes,” Biden told Meet the Press host David Gregory. “I think Will & Grace probably did more to educate the American public than almost anybody’s ever done so far. People fear that which is different. Now they’re beginning to understand.”  READ FULL STORY
