LOS ANGELES (AP) — As soon as Eric McCormack stepped into the old “Will & Grace” kitchen, he was Will Truman again. Debra Messing says she still feels like Grace Adler, but these days, she has to physically warm up before stepping into that persona. Megan Mullally said finding Karen again was “like riding a bike.” For Sean Hayes, rediscovering Jack McFarland was “like waking up out of a coma, maybe — a Jack coma.”
