Will & Grace has cuffed Bobby Cannavale for its upcoming reboot.

The Boardwalk Empire alum will reprise his role as Vince D’Angelo, easily distracted cop and ex-boyfriend of Will on the NBC sitcom.

He first appeared in the sixth season and won an Emmy in the guest star category. Vince and Will (Eric McCormack) had broken up before the flashforward in the season 8 finale, but the flashforward revealed that the two had reunited, gotten married, and had a son.

It’s unclear what Vince’s return means, considering the show has previously said they were setting aside the title characters’ kids and previous partners in this reboot.

Harry Connick Jr. also will be reprising his role as Grace’s (Debra Messing) ex-husband on the comedy, which returns to NBC on Sept. 28.

Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally are also back as series regulars Jack and Karen. Ahead of the show’s premiere, NBC already ordered a 13-episode second season, and added four episodes to the first for a total of 16.
