McCormack shot to fame opposite Messing in the hit sitcom Will & Grace. The show ran for eight seasons between 1998-2006.
It returned last year for a ninth season, which proved a critical and ratings hit. A tenth season is currently in production.
McCormack later retweeted a new story about his impending star, simply saying: ‘Very happy to be walked all over!’
