Sitcom Star Eyes Political Run

Aug 1, 2011  •  Post A Comment

An actor known for roles in two long-running sitcoms is considering a run for political office, reports the New York Post.

"I have had a great career and extraordinary opportunities," said Kelsey Grammer, who’s best known for his roles in NBC’s hit comedies “Frasier” and “Cheers.” "But I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life — where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little."

Grammer will play fictional Chicago Mayor Tom Kane in a new drama on Starz called "Boss," which will debut in the fall. He has been involved in politics in the past, campaigning for and traveling with politicians.

Grammer didn’t provide many specifics about his political goals, although he noted that if and when he runs for office, it would likely be in New York.

  1. Why doesn’t he just skip all the frightful expense and go straight to the inevitable commentator job on Fox News?
