Will & Grace

They met while rehearsing a play at Temple Emanuel in Beverly Hills, California at age of 13.[1] Similar to Will and Grace, Mutchnick and Eisenberg also dated. After going off to different colleges, he went out of the closet and though it came as a shock to her, they remained friends. Eisenberg also introduced Mutchnick to David Kohan who was part of the drama department at Beverly Hills High School at the time.

Awards and Nominations

He has received an Emmy Award, a People's Choice Award, and several Golden Globe Award nominations for his work on Will & Grace.
