    Sean Hayes stars as Sean, a divorced dad struggling to juggle career and family, in the new comedy Sean Saves the World. In addition, Hayes serves as executive producer on NBC's acclaimed drama series Grimm.

    Hayes is widely known as the sarcastic and hilarious Jack McFarland on the iconic sitcom Will & Grace, which ran for eight years (1998-2006) and won an Emmy Award for best comedy in 2000.

    After moving to Los Angeles, Hayes had gigs as a stand-up comic, performing at the Comedy Club, and starred in the television movie A&P, based on the short story by John Updike. In 1998, Hayes received his big break and landed the role of Jack on Will & Grace, for which he won an Emmy Award (and was nominated six times), four Screen Actors Guild Awards, two TV Guide Awards, an American Comedy Award and seven Golden Globe nominations.

    Hayes' other notable television projects include well-received guest roles on Scrubs and 30 Rock, as well as Martin & Lewis, a television film that earned him a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for his role as Jerry Lewis. Hayes appeared in multiple episodes of the sitcom Up All Night, in which he played a former colleague of Ava's (Maya Rudolph). He also made guest appearances in recent seasons of Parks and Recreation, Portlandia and Hot in Cleveland. In addition, he had an arc on Smash as a TV and film star making his Broadway debut.

    Hayes starred as Larry Fine in the movie The Three Stooges, directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, and he is a voice actor in this summer's box office hit Monsters University. Hayes' additional film credits include The Bucket List, opposite Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss, Pieces of April, the voice of Mr. Fish in The Cat in the Hat, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, Igor, Soul Men and the voice of Mr. Tinkles in the box-office hit Cats and Dogs.

    Hazy Mills also produced the sitcom The Soul Man, starring Cedric the Entertainer that premiered on TV Land this past summer. Its most recent project is NBC's Hollywood Game Night, a game show that pits celebrities against each other in a makeshift game night.
