Personal Quote:

I'm not the sort that likes to go out and get hammered, I'm not the Hotel Babylon (2006) and I let that go years ago now that I am older and wiser. See more »

Trivia:

According to his autobiography, when the part of Will in Will & Grace (1998) came down to him and Eric McCormack, the producers decided to go with Eric because, as they told John, he (John) was "too straight-acting." John, meanwhile, is openly gay, but they went with a straight actor for the role. See more »
