Driver’s currently staring in another sitcom Speechless, but she still really wants to be part of the Will and Grace experience.

“There’s nothing I wouldn’t do,” Driver said of what she’d like to see her character do if she were to return. “I’d do anything … there’s nowhere Lorraine Finster couldn’t have gone. She could be marrying Prince Harry. Let’s say she’s marrying Prince Harry!” Driver said while speaking to The Los Angeles Times.
