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:
  • Has appeared in episodes of three different series with 'Ted Danson' (qv): _"Cheers" (1982)_ (qv), _"Frasier" (1993)_ (qv) and _"Becker" (1998)_ (qv).
  • Began his acting career at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis.
  • Appears as "Beast" in _X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)_ (qv). 'George Buza' (qv), who was the voice of "Beast" in the animated television series, played a truck driver in the first _X-Men (2000)_ (qv) film. 'Steve Bacic' (qv) played a "Dr. Hank McCoy" in _X2 (2003)_ (qv).
  • (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.

This joke was repeated and extended a decade later, when Pierce once again played Bob's brother, and 'John Mahoney (I)' (qv) once again played their father.
