'Will & Grace' to return to NBC for limited revival
Popular sitcom Will & Grace will return to NBC for a limited revival.

The series, starring Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally, will air 10 episodes during the 2017-2018 television season, the network announced at the TCA winter press tour Wednesday.

"We're thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest and most defining comedies in NBC history is coming back," NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said.

"This groundbreaking series for everything from gay rights to social and political commentary -- all disguised as a high-speed train of witty pop culture -- is coming back where it belongs," he added.

Series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan will serve as showrunners and executive producers, with James Burrows as director and co-executive producer. Burrows directed every episode of the sitcom during its initial eight-season run from 1998 to 2006.

NBC had been in talks with the cast and creators about the revival since September, according to Variety. The cast reunited and released a 10-minute episode that month about the presidential election.

"The fact that all four of the original stars were excited about getting back into production is a testament to the joyful experience they had doing nearly 200 episodes for eight seasons," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said.

"Few things cut through the clutter these days, especially in comedy, and Will & Grace is one of the best," she added.

Mullally, who plays Karen Walker, told PrideSource in December that there was a "good chance" a revival would happen. Messing, McCormack and Hayes will reprise Grace Adler, Will Truman and Jack McFarland, respectively.

Which Mamma Mia! actress wants a low-key wedding to Thomas Sadoski?


Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and Pierce Brosnan team up for epic group photos
Ryan Reynolds has taken to social media to share a cryptic group photo featuring fellow X-Men costar Hugh Jackman and Pierce Brosnan.

"Wolvie. Bond. Wade," Reynolds captioned the photo on Instagram Tuesday referencing each star's most famous onscreen characters as the trio displayed a hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil pose.

Jackman additionally shared a more candid snap of the group laughing together with the caption "#wolverinebonddeadpool."

The post has lead many to speculate that Jackman as Wolverine and Brosnan could be joining Reynolds for Deadpool 2 which is set for release on March 2, 2018.

Jackman and Reynolds had previously starred together as Wolverine and Deadpool in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Despite Jackman claiming that the upcoming Logan will be his last run as the clawed mutant, rumors have persisted that he will appear onscreen with Reynolds in the near future.

"I'm hesitating, because I could totally see how that's the perfect fit," Jackman said to Variety recently when asked about filming a Wolverine movie with Deadpool.

"But the timing may be wrong. I'm at the point where I'm finishing up. In terms of a theory, it's a great idea," he continued.

Which Mamma Mia! actress wants a low-key wedding to Thomas Sadoski?

Mom-to-be Amanda Seyfried says she wants a no-fuss wedding to Thomas Sadoski.

The 31-year-old American actress discussed her upcoming nuptials to the 40-year-old actor in the February issue of Vogue Australia after announcing she's pregnant with her first child.

"I don't want to be the center of attention," she told the magazine. "I get to go to premieres and get dressed up all the time. I went to the Met gala last year in a wedding gown designed by Riccardo Tisci; I've played the bride a billion times."

Seyfried had shared similar sentiments about weddings in an interview with E! News in 2015 while she was dating actor Justin Long. The star has appeared as a bride in such films as Mamma Mia and Les Miserables.

"I got married so many times in my life -- onscreen!" she said. "I don't want a white dress! I've worn so many of them. "The fact is, that kind of stuff is less about the ceremony and more about the commitment."

Seyfried and Sadoski got engaged in September after less than a year of dating and confirmed in November that they're expecting their first child. The actress couldn't help but gush about becoming a mother in the Vogue Australia interview.

"I've never been excited by anything more in my life. And ready," she shared.

Seyfried will star in a number of upcoming films, including The Last Word with Shirley MacLaine and Anon with Clive Owen. She will also appear on the Showtime revival of Twin Peaks.
