Letters to the Editor
When Debra Messing heard she'd been cast as Woody Allen's girlfriend in his new romantic romp, "Hollywood Ending," she shrieked.
NBC's hit "Will & Grace," which is up for 12 Emmys this month, is one of the first network shows to feature an appealing homosexual main character. But the sitcom -- which revolves around gay attorney Will and his best gal pal Grace -- is a first for another reason: its novel depiction of a young Jewish woman.
Grace Adler, played by Jewish actress Debra Messing, is a gorgeous, kooky interior designer who is neither pushy nor a shopaholic. Forget pathetic Melissa from "thirtysomething" or obnoxious Vicki from "Suddenly Susan."
