Kelsey Grammer has been a part of the TV landscape since the 1980s thanks to his portrayal of Frasier Crane on Cheers and Frasier. He’s one actor who was able to take a character and play it a little differently…and succeed.
Crane remained a psychologist once he moved from Boston to Seattle. Frasier became the most successful spinoff from Cheers. Now, Grammer has updated Frasier and its first new season has wrapped on Paramount+
The actor has been able to work not only on his show but even as a voiceover actor too. Grammer has been lending his voice to “Sideshow Bob” on The Simpsons for a long time. Grammer picked up a Primetime Emmy Award for his voiceover work as Bob. He’s done his best to be careful with his wealth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Grammer’s net worth is $80 million.
Reportedly, Grammer received $1.6 million per episode when Frasier was at its height of success. That translates into $38 million per season. Grammer has appeared in other numerous TV shows as well. But he’s been a regular performer in the theater world, too. Among the plays and musicals he’s done include Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, My Fair Lady, La Cage aux Folles, and Man of La Mancha.
Kelsey Grammer Also Produces TV Shows
He’s also been a producer for other TV shows through his company, Grammnet Production. Among the shows produced by the company are Medium, Girlfriends, and The Game. In an executive producer role, Grammer has been involved in shows like The Game, Hank, Partners, and others.
Grammer’s personal life has not always been smooth sailing. He’s been married four times and has seven children from his relationships. In divorcing his third wife Camille, she reportedly received $30 million and some real estate assets, too.
It also is worth noting how much tragedy has filled Grammer’s life over the years. He lost his father, who was murdered in 1968. Karen, Grammer’s lone sister, was kidnapped and murdered back in 1975. In 1980, two half-brothers of Grammer died in a scuba diving accident.
As for career awards, Grammer has won four Primetime Emmy Awards for his work on Frasier.
Who knows if he will win another Primetime Emmy for this iteration of Crane? But Grammer is having a great time revisiting his old character. With Season 2 of the Frasier reboot coming, Grammer said some ideas have been booted about among him and producers. Mostly among show producers at this time.
“We’ve been kicking around some ideas but they mostly revolve around the idea of Frasier finding happiness and becoming a good father and having breakthroughs at college,” Grammer told Deadline in an interview. “Maybe Frasier could become an important person in somebody’s life [as a professor]? He’s always getting into trouble in one way or another so I’m sure that’s going to continue to happen. Who knows what’s gonna arise?”
