Legendary British actor SIR Michael Caine is set to make a guest appearance in hit American sitcom Will And Grace.

The Italian Job veteran was asked to appear last year (02) after producers saw his hilarious performance in Austin Powers in Goldmember.

But Michael had to turn them down because he was busy and then phoned back when he had a break in his schedule.

A source says, "It's great to get Sir Michael. When he turned it down last year (02) we thought we would never hear from him again.

"Then, out of the blue, we got a call from his people. He's a superb actor and we can't believe he has agreed to appear."
