WATCH: Grace and Frankie break into RuPaul’s home in new season trailer

RuPaul appears in the Grace and Frankie season 5 trailer

Grace and Frankie, the Netflix show starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, has released the trailer for their upcoming 5th season. In it, we see the first glimpse of this season’s very special guest star, RuPaul.

The trailer

The official trailer was released on 8 January and currently has over 200,000 views.

On season 5 of Grace and Frankie, RuPaul plays Benjamin Le Day, a ‘formidable and quick-witted adversary.’ He is first introduced when Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) break into his house.

‘Someone’s coming,’ Grace whispers to Frankie upon realizing someone is home after the break-in. The two women duck behind the kitchen counter.

‘It seems you’re breaking and entering,’ Benjamin says to them.

‘Hey girl,’ Grace responds, flustered, and holding a toaster.

‘Who the fuck are you?’ Benjamin calmly asks.

‘Who the fuck are you?’ Frankie replies, louder.

News of RuPaul’s role on Grace and Frankie broke last year, following a Twitter thread between RuPaul and Jane Fonda which hinted at a cameo appearance.

Fan reactions

Fans of the show took to Twitter to express excitement at RuPaul’s guest role.

Season 5 of Grace and Frankie will be streaming on Netflix beginning 18 January.
