The National Enquirer reports that Eric McCormack, who played Will Truman on “Will & Grace,” pitched “an out-of-control hissy fit aboard a plane” recently.
“Will & Grace” star Eric McCormack pitched such an out-of-control hissy fit aboard a plane that the incident was reported to the FAA, sources say. The 44-year old erupted after the crew told him that a booster seat he brought onboard for his 4-year old son, Finnigan, was too large, violated regulations and had to be stowed with the luggage.
The actor was taking an Alaska Airlines flight from L.A. to Vancouver when crew members barred the non-regulation booster. “Eric screeched like a banshee when he didn’t get his way,” said the insider. “He yelled at crew members- telling them his family had used the seat on many flights in the past,” said the insider. “But the price tag was still on it. And when an attendant turned over the seat, a warning label said ‘not to be used on aircraft!’” A representative for Eric told The Enquirer: “The McCormack’s followed the regulations with very little fuss, but still believe their son would be safer in his car seat. They did not jeopardize the safety of any crew member of the airline.” However, the insider reports that “the booster seat battle turned what should have been a routine flight into an uproar.”
Dumb ass. Hollywood stars sometimes think they’re big shots who don’t have to play be the rules. Funny thing is that no one has ever heard of Eric McCormack.
