Producers for WILL + Grace are desperate to convince Brokeback Mountain actors Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal to appear on the hit TV show and re-enact their onscreen kiss.

The actors, who played gay cowboys in the Oscar-nominated film, would also play gay cowboys on the show.

Sources tell American magazine In Touch the actors are interested, but will only agree to appear after the Oscar ceremony, because they don't want to hurt the film's chances of winning any awards.
