Kelsey Grammer addresses the possibility of ‘Frasier’ and ‘Cheers’ has been launched, and shares his greatest life lesson: “Trust in God” during the 2018 Television Critics Associations’ Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, California. Thursday.
LOS ANGELES – Kelsey Grammer has been a fixture on television for many years, but two of his most well known roles from his time during the sitcoms “Frasier” and “Cheers.”
When asked about how serious all of the whispers were around a potential “Frasier” reboot, Grammer told reporters on the 2018 Television Critics Associations’ Summer Press Tour in Beverly Hills, California. Thursday: “it is in the early stages.”
“I have a wonderful life,” he continued. “I played Frasier for 20 years. It can happen again. It can’t be.”
Grammer, who starred as Dr. Frasier Crane from 1993 to 2004 in the hit comedy series went on to share that he is only interested in a possible restart “if it is going to be a really great show.”
“That is all,” Grammer stated, is the expression of that until now “it is all talk at this point.”
The star also kept tight-lipped about where a possible restart would take place. As fans remember, Frasier left for Chicago in the latest episode of the Seattle-based series.
“We have no idea what happened to him after that,” Grammer said.
As a short-order series would make no difference for the Emmy-award winning actor to sign on? Grammer replied, “Who knows?”
“To be honest, the work is great,” he said. “Once you start doing the multi-cam is fantastic, you have a great life and you have a good career at the same time.
“There would be nothing wrong with doing a full-blown season if that’s the case,” he added, noting that they “make sure that it is going to be a great show.”
“If it’s not going to be a great show, if we don’t hear a pitch that really hits it out of the park, it probably will not happen,” he explained.
Grammer also discussed where the show, which originally aired on 11 seasons on NBC, it would be country.
“I think that NBC may not be interested,” the star admitted. “It might go somewhere else, if that is the case. Maybe.”
Looking back on his time on the show, Grammer said that Frasier “was a great character to play”, however, now he does not necessarily need to “miss him.”
“I play a number of great things now, so I’m with a lot of fun,” he explained.
Another possible show Grammer on a day to add to his plate? A “Cheers” reboot.
When asked about the possibility, the star revealed that the idea “has on the minds of the people.”
“But I’m not in the cost of that,” he added with a laugh.
Apart from his career, Grammer was also reflected on the biggest lesson he has learned in his life.
“Slow down. Don’t worry about it so much. Trust in God. These are some of the most important,” he said, adding that he “always” had faith in God when he “was younger,” but lost it the following 1975 murder of his 18-year-old sister.
“I lost my faith when my sister died, and went through a bit of a difficult time then,” Grammer said.
“But always in the back of my mind, an old friend of mine used to say,” I fell on my knees, and I cried out to the God of my childhood, and there was the answer.'”
