Although he can appear distant and aloof at times, Will has frequently demonstrated his sensitive side, often going to great lengths to help his friends. In one case, Will was willing to forego his chances of becoming a senior partner at his law firm in order to care for his emotionally distraught boyfriend. Will is mentioned on several occasions as being supportive of Jack, a struggling actor.

Will’s controlling and perfectionist personality is also a source of contention among his friends, who frequently point out that it is the source of conflict in his romantic relationships. His friends and family usually come to him for legal advice because he is a good lawyer. When Will decided to work for the Coalition of Justice, he is also portrayed as a person of integrity.

He appeared as Grant MacLaren in the science fiction television series Travelers. The show’s core team is led by FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, played by starring cast member Eric McCormack. Although the host body is married to Kathryn MacLaren, the Traveler consciousness, Traveler 3468, is dating fellow traveler team member Carly Shannon. This relationship appears to have ended by the end of Season 1. Grant was to have died in a fall down an open elevator shaft while on the hunt for Jonas Walker, a suspected murderer being investigated by the FBI. Trevor Holden saved him by grabbing him as Grant lunged for a dropped cell phone. In the second timeline, there was no explicit death. Instead, Traveler 3468 was transferred to a known point in his host’s history.
