The second season of Will & Grace's revival run just added another guest star. The NBC sitcom will welcome Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer for a role that he is very familiar with. In fact, you could say that he is around this character every day.

That's right! Jon Cryer will be playing himself in an upcoming episode of Will & Grace, per THR. So, whose sphere will Cryer find himself in? Jack and Karen's! Unfortunately, there is not a lot more to go on than that. When fans left off with Jack and Karen, both were in different relationship spaces. Jack had become engaged, and Karen had called off her long-simmering affair with Alec Baldwin's Malcolm Widmark. How Jon Cryer will fit into the friends' storyline will be fun to find out.

The fact that Jon Cryer will be playing himself when he makes his guest appearance could indicate any number of possible arcs, so we can only speculate at this point about what's in store. With Jack being an aspiring actor, it is feasible that is where Cryer could come into the story. Interestingly, Jon Cryer's upcoming guest appearance on Will & Grace will not be the first time the actor has played himself in a series. He recently played himself in the first episode of the Netflix comedy Lady Dynamite.

As for Will & Grace, Jon Cryer is the latest in a long line of guest stars that are set to take part in the revival's second installment. The NBC series has also managed to secure another sitcom favorite. In case you missed it, Friends' David Schwimmer has been cast for a pivotal arc in Season 2. Schwimmer will play Grace's new boyfriend. Other Season 2 guest stars will include Chelsea Handler, Alec Baldwin as Malcolm, and Mary McCormack as Grace's older sister, Janet.

A date for Jon Cryer's episode has not been shared yet, so stay tuned. Cryer's appearance on the popular NBC sitcom comes three years after Two and a Half Men came to an end in February 2015. Cryer has been keeping his sitcom muscles strong having recently appeared in Ashton Kutcher's The Ranch. Will & Grace's super successful revival run will continue this fall, so fans will not have too much longer to wait before seeing Cryer make his debut in Season 2.

Will & Grace returns for the second season of its revival run, October 4 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC. Check out the new shows still coming this summer with CinemaBlend's summer premiere guide.
