The other day I suggested that Franklin Cover's brief appearance as the Justice of the Peace at the sham wedding between JustJack and Rosario on the first season finale for 'Will & Grace' could have been Tom Willis, the character he played on 'The Jeffersons'.
Here's the relevant parts of that scene.....
Thank you all for coming. I know my husband Stan would've loved to have been here tonight, but, regrettably, could not attend, as he is at home watching the Knicks game. However, I know he would echo my sentiments in saying, Rosario, by marrying Jack, we're not losing a maid. We're...keeping a maid.
JUSTICE OF THE PEACE:
Welcome. We are gathered here today to join this man, John Phillip McFarland, and this woman... Rosario Inez Consuela Yolanda Salazar... In the bond of holy matrimony. And today, Rosario and Jack take their first step on the road to true intimacy.

Shut up, you guys!
I don't see anything in that which would refute the idea that maybe Tom Willis looked beyond his life as an editor for Pelham Publishing and eventually got himself appointed as a justice of the peace.
