Friends star joins Will & Grace

He is the latest high profile name to join the series, which has recruited comedian Chelsea Handler, 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin and The West Wing's Mary McCormack for the new season of the revived show.

It will make his first appearance on network prime time TV since Friends ended in 2004.

He earned rave reviews however for his role as Robert Kardashian in American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson.

The 51-year-old has popped up on Matt Le Blanc's show Episodes and Lisa Kudrow's Web Therapy but hasn't been as successful post-Friends as his former co-stars.

Schwimmer, who once dated Aussie singer Natalie Imbruglia, was married to British artist Zoe Buckman from 2010-2017, before announcing they were "taking some time apart".

They share daughter, Cleo.
