Sheridan Missed Out On Grace

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN was close to scoring one of the lead roles in hit sitcom WILL + GRACE, but ended up narrowly missing out to DEBRA MESSING. The show's creator, MAX MUTCHNICK, claims the actress auditioned for the role of the kooky interior designer and succeeded in impressing producers. Referring to her role in Desperate Housewives, Mutchnick quips, "Nicollette came in - she did a great job, but the performance was just a little...desperate." Executives liked what they saw and decided to bring Sheridan back for a guest-starring role. The actress appeared on the sitcom in 2003, as a sexy doctor who comes on to Grace's boyfriend LEO, played by HARRY CONNICK JR.
