BIOGRAPHY:

A five-time Emmy Award winner, Grammer is the first actor in television history to receive multiple Emmy nominations for performing the same role on three series. He received two nominations for his original portrayal of Dr. Frasier Crane on "Cheers" (1982), another for his guest appearance in that role on "Wings" (1990), and nine nominations (earning four awards) as Outstanding Actor for his work on "Frasier" (1993). Over the years, Dr. Frasier Crane has become one of television's most endearing and enduring characters. In addition to his Emmys, Grammer has won two Golden Globe Awards, two American Comedy Awards and a People's Choice Award for his portrait. Grammer's distinctive voice has been heard in several hit animated features, including the voice of "Stinky Pete" in Disney's hit Toy Story 2 (1999) and a part in Anastasia (1997). On television, he has also been seen in several mini-series and movies. In 1996, he hosted an hour-long salute to Jack Benny for which he served as executive producer. He also starred in HBO's award-winning The Pentagon Wars (1998) (TV).

Born in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, Grammer was raised by his mother and grandfather in New Jersey and then Florida. After his grandfather's death, Grammer was drawn to the works of William Shakespeare (I) and spent two years at the prestigious Juilliard School. He then dove into the world of regional theater, eventually making the leap to Broadway with roles in "Macbeth" and "Othello." He joined the cast of "Cheers" (1982) in 1984. His autobiography, "So Far", was published in fall 1995.


TRIVIA:
  • His son was named after his maternal grandfather, Gordon Cranmer, who helped raise him and his sister. He passed away when Kelsey was 11.
  • (May 2000) He has filed a lawsuit against Hamptons real estate broker Bettie Wysor of Dunemere Real Estate who put him and his wife next door to a construction site. The couple rented a mansion next door to advertising executive Jay Chiat in the summer of 1998. Kelsey was uninformed of Chiat's extensive renovation, and is suing Wyson for $100,000 for failing to warn him but Wysor says that work on Chiat's house was finished by the time the Grammers moved in. She claims the couple only used their place for three of the four weeks they'd rented it for, and never complained to her about anything.
  • Daughter, Greer, born 1992, with 'Barrie Buckner' (qv).
  • (August 2000) He filed suit against his former talent agency, Artists Agency, in order to recover $1.8 million in commissions. The current lawsuit comes on the heels of a Screen Actors Guild arbitration that has ordered him to pay the agency commissions withheld since 1998. Artists Agency is claiming that it has a right to claim ongoing profit participation in _"Frasier" (1993)_ (qv), which means several million dollars in commissions with the show in syndication. He is charging that Artists Agency, which has represented him since the '80s, didn't win him the role of Frasier Crane on either _"Cheers" (1982)_ (qv) or _"Frasier" (1993)_ (qv). In 1996, he switched agencies but continued to pay commission up to 1998, after which Artists Agency began arbitration. The arbitrator's ruling, which was handed down August 4, 2000, upholds a renewal agreement he says he was forced into signing and orders him to pay withheld commissions.
  • (2001) Signed a new 2 season deal for _"Frasier" (1993)_ (qv). He will be getting about 1.1 million per episode. This makes him the highest paid TV star ever.
  • Has his own production company, Grammnet Productions, which has a distribution deal with Paramount Pictures. They are behind the UPN hit, Girlfriends, of which Grammer is an executive producer, and his new comedy show on Fox-TV, debuting in March 2005.
  • Wife 'Camille Grammer' (qv) appeared on his sitcom _"Frasier" (1993)_ (qv), in the episode _"Frasier" (1993) {Halloween (#5.3)}_ (qv).
  • His two best known roles are characters on television series: Frasier Crane and Sideshow Bob. Both characters have a brother played by 'David Hyde Pierce' (qv) and a father played by 'John Mahoney (I)' (qv).
