Here's some "TV News" scoop from next week's issue of TV Guide magazine (on sale Monday): Will & Grace producers have retained ex-Practice star Dylan McDermott to play a romantic interest for Will (Eric McCormack) in an episode to air Oct. 30. As of now it's just a one-shot deal, but it could develop into a recurring gig. Why the hesitation? "It scares people," says McCormack of a full-blown love story for Will. "It scares middle America. So we have to be careful. And I think to do it with the right person somebody they already know, an actor they're already comfortable with might help. This is maybe one that makes them comfortable."
