Brokeback Mountain stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger are being chased by the producers of Will Grace to re enact their on screen kiss for the hit gay comedy.

Sources say the actors are being asked to play gay cowboys on the show. They have yet to say yes.

American magazine In Touch reported that the pair are interested, but are currently concentrating on next week’s Oscar ceremony. They don’t want to hurt the film’s chances of winning any awards.

Meanwhile, the shirt worn by Jake Gyllenhaal in the gay cowboy movie sold for US $101,000 on auction site eBay. A fan known as ‘hlywdstar’ had the winning bid out of 165 attempts for the checked shirt. All money raised from the shirt will go to Variety-The Children’s Charity of Southern California.
