Eric McCormack recently chatted with about his new role on TNT's "Perception".

During the interview, the actor compared his character on "Perception," Dr. Daniel Pierce, a paranoid schizophrenic neuroscientist, to his role as gay New York attorney Will Truman on "Will & Grace."

With marriage equality being a hot topic, McCormack voiced his opinion on whether or not he thought Truman would be married by now.

“He was virtually married in the series finale. I virtually got married to Taye Diggs on the show and I virtually married Bobby Cannavale on the show,” McCormack told Uinterview.

“Will was a reflection of our co-creator Max Mutchnick, who was a guy who wanted to find the right guy, and that’s what Max has done and that’s definitely what Will would be doing now [that gay marriage is legal in New York].”

Last year, Megan Mullally, McCormack's co-star, revealed that McCormack wasn't too enthused about tackling a gay role.

"Everybody originally passed -- all four of us originally passed on the roles," Mullally noted. "Eric McCormack had been playing a manly cowboy on a series in Canada and didn't want to play gay."

Catch season two of "Perception" on TNT on Fridays at 10pm ET.
