Barbra Streisand is set to extend on her return to acting, by taking on a guest-starring role in hit sitcom WILL + Grace.

Streisand is currently finishing off work as Ben Stiller's sex therapist mother in MEET THE PARENTS sequel Meet The Fockers, after a long absence from the silver screen.

And now she is expected to follow in the footsteps of Cher, Jennifer Lopez and Janet Jackson by taking on a role in Will + Grace - news which has proved to be all too exciting for the show's EMMY-winning star Debra Messing.

The redhead actress says, "If she comes on the show, forget about it! Barbra, please come!"

Messing admits she "burst into tears" when Streisand greeted her at a concert a number of years ago.
