Debra Messing and Eric McCormack, who last appeared together on NBC's barrier-breaking "Will & Grace," hugged and posed for photos at the North Hollywood event, seven years after their hit sitcom went off the air.
"JOY Is reuniting with a dear old friend and feeling like no time has passed," Messing tweeted, alongside of photo of herself with her former costar.
Messing also spotted former "Will & Grace" directed Jim Burrows:

“The bond between Eric [McCormack] and I, it’s incredibly, incredibly special,” she said. “I mean all four of us, we’re family forever,” she said of former costars Mullally and Sean Hayes.
