Heads up Alec Baldwin, theres another actor with his eye on a political career.
The New York Post reported Sunday that Kelsey Grammer intends to run for office in the future, perhaps in New York where he now resides.
A rare conservative in Hollywood, Grammer told the paper that being an actor and a politician both require a "narcissistic personality and a resilient ego.
Money doesnt hurt either. The Post pointed out that the actor, who will play a fictional Chicago mayor on a drama called Boss this fall, is worth almost $100 million.
What might hurt? Four marriages and his regular appearances on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 1.
Said Grammer, 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."

Kelsey Grammer’s exwife claims he is a cross dresser. I don’t think he wins anywhere.
He runs on a ticket with Rudi Gulianni.
2 unimpeachable sources . Politico and a bitter cast off .
She can claim anything she wants. Proving it is something else.
Yeah, that’s quite a pair, for sure.
Nice over-sized implants. They’re halfway to her waist.
Why would he want to do that?
Here’s the original article/interview from the NY Post:
I know KGrammer has been a big supporter of Ilario Pantano, who ran for Congress in NC last year, and of a small conservative graduate school in Washington, DC.
You're doing this just because I beat you out for President of the Wine Club, aren't you?!
We do not need any celebutards running for office!!
If Kelsey were Hollywood's first choice to play politicians, as Fred Thompson seems to be, would he feel the need to play one in real life?
Ummmm, he had a very traumatic childhood and young adulthood and suffered from depression. In recent years, he’s had a hard time staying married to the same person.
He has not managed things well.
Seems to me there was one actor/celeb who did pretty darn good in office.
Oh, what was his name?
You guys aren’t very picky. Size is your only criteria.
I don’t know if she’s telling the truth about him being a cross-dresser or not, but it is a fact that his peronal life has a long history of crazy, messy, definitely not conservative stuff. Marriages and girlfriends including strippers and playboy bunnies, an out of wedlock child or maybe two, a couple of sex tapes, drug and alcohol abuse, a heart attack. Maybe he and Donald Trump could run on a ticket together?
I don’t think he is serious. If he runs it will be as a joke.
and he had experience with the SAG and all that.
You mean Arnold? Kinky? Ventura? oh you must be thinking of Sonny Bono, he was OKAY I guess, but way too much baggage.
Ron Siler without the intellect or steely nerves. Not much left besides the gift of gab, which got us Obama last time.
You could be right. While I think the guy is a train wreck, he’s a really good actor and has provided a lot of good entertainment over the years. Frazier was one of my favorite series.
He’s already made his first campaign commercial supporting gay marriage:
Who would have ever thought Al Franken would be a senator.
That should tell all of us the state of this nation.
My only point was to caution never to say ever. Now, that being said; there’s no one in today’s crop, or for the forseable future that I could count on, or vote for. But I won’t go so far, as to say never ever.
That's what they say about you guys, too. I don't know if that's true, though.
Wow, it’s hard to accomplish, but her face looks more plastic than her chest.
She’s gorgeous with that face, but look up her pics without makeup. Plain looking.
Is that what $100 million gets?
And frankly he really earned the name Stinky Pete..
The CIC is a confessed coke-n-dope head...
We watched the Frazier episodes again on DVD a while back. Pierce is soooo funny. He seems to have figured out how to play Niles from the very beginning. Some of his looks or mannerisms could crack me up with no dialog.
Sorry Kelsey, while I loved you in Fraiser, I’ve lost all respect, and have trouble watching it now that I know you cheated on your (most recent) wife...
What is it with these people? Can’t they keep it in their pants, or at the very least, wait until their divorce comes through?!?!?!
This is his most recent ex-wife, who he cheated on with a much younger woman (in her mid 20s, I believe). I think that he may have married the younger one now.
I think that his comedy style hearkens back to that of Jack Benny (and Johnny Carson had mastered it as well, a HUGE fan of Benny) who had such amazing comedy timing, that his pauses (and looks) were as funny or funnier than his lines. Benny was often at his funniest not saying anything.
He was the greatest, and I think Pierce does something similar.
I can’t tell Grammer from Grammar!
You’d have to run away fast from all of the bones that would fall out if you opened his closet.
David Hyde Pierce is an absolute acting genius. Most episodes make me laugh out loud. Kelsey grammar is very good as well. But Pierce could also make me cry, in some of those scenes he did in the seasons where he was pining in love with Daphne.
That has to be the best cast acting ensemble with the best writers on tv. Nothing else comes close. They Expected their audience to be well read and intelligent, and what other sitcom ever did? I could watch it every day. Some of the episodes are like short Moliere plays, perfect little comedies of error.
Not sure I want President Frasier but I thank him for entertaining me all these years.
>> “They Expected their audience to be well read and intelligent, and what other sitcom ever did?” <<
Even our biggest and best universities don’t expect that anymore.
Ex-wives claim all sorts of crazy things.
Anyone who judges any person based on what their ex-wife says is not even minimally qualified to vote.
She is/was an airline stewardess. English.
Ended up preggers. Lost baby. They got married after a messy divorce.
Then Grammer was trying to get the two kids he had with previous wife away from her.
Another cokehead iN Washington. What the hell, we already have one in the White Hut at the moment.
