Sean Hayes Reveals One of His Favorite Will & Grace Episodes Was with Cher: 'She's the Best'

Sean Hayes still has a love for Cher!

While appearing on PeopleTV's Couch Surfing Thursday afternoon, the actor reminisced on one of his favorite scenes from the beloved NBC sitcom, Will & Grace. 

During season 3 of the 11-season show, Hayes' character, Jack McFarland, unknowingly came face-to-face with one of his idols, superstar Cher, in episode seven. In the scene, Jack mistook Cher as a drag queen and told the star he could do a better impersonation of her.

"It was so wild to have, to have the character be in love with this icon and superstar like Cher, and then to have Cher on the show, like, out of nowhere," Hayes, 49, told PEOPLE.

"She’s the best," he added of working with her for the scene in 2000. "She’s super cool, super down to earth, really fun and funny and got a big heart. She is who she is because you feel that from her. You feel that she, ‘Okay, I could hang out with this girl for a long time.’ She’s very, very cool."

McCormack, who played Will Truman on the series, and Hayes recently said goodbye to the show after two decades. The series, which also stars Debra Messing and Megan Mullally, airs its finale episode on Thursday.

PEOPLE got an exclusive first look at the final episode, which includes an overview of the final season as well as behind-the-scenes footage of production on the last episode.

Looking back on the show in the extra footage, McCormack said, “We’ve done certain episodes that while they’re very much about right now, they will withstand the test of time.”

He later added, “I have a greater appreciation of how great a job this is, so in some ways it’s harder to say goodbye this time.”

The series, which ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006, was rebooted in 2017. NBC announced last year that the 11th season would be the last.

The Will & Grace finale is set to air Thursday, April 23 at 9 p.m. ET, followed by the Will & Grace retrospective special at 9:30 p.m. ET, both on NBC.
