Stephen Colbert Enlists Eric McCormack in Response to Joe Biden's Gay Sitcom-Loving Remarks: VIDEO


Stephen Colbert has written a new sitcom in response to Vice President Joe Biden's nod to gay-accepting television ('Will & Grace') in his remarks on Meet the Press over the weekend.

Says Colbert: "These gay sitcom characters are a menace to society. They seduce us into thining that gays are just like us. Normal people with real relationships based on love and mutual respect. Disgusting...Real men know that men don't love each other. They are bros who engage in horseplay...So to rebalance the natural order of television, I've written a new sitcom about two straight guys named Will and Gracin, who are always on the prowl for the ladies. One has a cat and one has a dog. Which is why the show is called "Pussy Hound".

Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack, Debra Messing React to VP Joe Biden's 'Will & Grace' Shout-out


Yesterday in his remarks in support of marriage equality, VP Joe Biden offered a shout-out to late 90's sitcom Will & Grace:

And by the way, my measure, David -- and I take a look at when things really began to change, is when the social culture changes. I think Will and Grace probably did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody's ever done so far.

The show's stars had their own reactions:

Said actor Sean Hayes

"On behalf of everyone who worked on 'Will and Grace', we thank Vice President Biden for his comments regarding our show as well as his support for equality for gay Americans and everyone in the LGBT community."

Tweeted Debra Messing: "@chrisdonovannbc @ericmccormack I could not be more proud. Thank you Mr. Vice President for yer support  and yer words about W&G. #humbled"

And Eric McCormack: "Three cheers for VP Joe Biden!  Fantastic interview.  Now who ELSE is gonna step up?"

Eric McCormack Dogged by Will Truman

MccormackEric McCormack tells The Observer he can't get an acting job because he's been typecast as gay:

"I have this big pink cross to bear. I absolutely loved playing Will. There was nothing hard about it. It was wonderful. But the only downside is the aftermath. I meet all these film executives who tell me how much they loved Will and Grace and say they never missed an episode. Then they say, "so what can we do for you?" What they could do for me is hire me to play someone else."

A big pink cross to bear and millions of dollars in residuals.
