In the Will & Grace episode “One Job,” while Jack (Sean Hayes) deals with his break up with married cop Drew (Ryan Pinkston), Karen (Megan Mullally) has fun with Malcolm Widmark (Alec Baldwin). Meanwhile, Grace (Debra Messing) brings Will (Eric McCormack) to her childhood home to celebrate her late mother’s birthday. (Grace’s mother was famously played by the late Debbie Reynolds.) Grace’s father Martin is portrayed by Robert Klein.
The stand-up comedian played Debra Messing’s father on The Mysteries of Laura, too. Klein is also known for his roles in the films How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (Phillip Warren), Two Weeks Notice (Sandra Bullock’s dad), One Fine Day (Dr. Martin), and in the 1970 comedy The Owl and the Pussycat with Barbra Streisand and George Segal, among others. Will & Grace airs Thursdays at 9pm on NBC.
