Kelsey Grammer turns 65: A look back at his biggest moments

A Hollywood icon, Kelsey Grammer has proved that he can do it all.

At 65, the actor has conquered acting in television, film, stage and animation, but he’s also received credits for writing and directing — all jobs that have cemented him in history forever.

Here’s a look back at some of his biggest moments:

After a stint at Julliard, Grammer made a few appearances on Broadway, which eventually led him to roles on television.

His first credited role, according to IMDb, is an appearance in the television series “Ryan’s Hope” in 1979.

Just a few years later, in 1984, Grammer appeared on “Cheers” after his longtime pal Mandy Patinkin passed his name along to casting directors, according to New York Magazine.

The role of Dr. Frasier Crane was originally supposed to be a guest spot, but he quickly became a fan favorite and series regular.

In the late 1980s, Grammer was sentenced to 30 days in jail after failing to attend a court-ordered alcohol abuse program following a drunk driving incident, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He was released after just 14 days due to overcrowding.

Fans were sad to see “Cheers” go, but Grammer got his own spin-off in the form of “Frasier.”

The show ran from 1993 (the year that “Cheers” ended) to 2004 and earned Grammer four Emmy Awards.

His involvement with the show didn’t end there, however, as he also directed 36 episodes of the series and performed the show’s closing theme, “Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs.”

Although this was his only major appearance in the franchise, he earned a Saturn Award nomination for his work.

In June 2008, Grammer suffered a near-fatal heart attack.

Grammer’s spokesperson said the attack was mild, but the actor later told Entertainment Tonight that it was much more severe, according to Reuters.

In quotes obtained by People, Grammer said that he believes stress from the cancelation of his show “Back To You” led to the attack.

Trump shares ‘Curb’ clip featuring Larry David wearing ‘MAGA’ hat

Westlake Legal Group AP20042010973965 Trump shares 'Curb' clip featuring Larry David wearing 'MAGA' hat Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 32464128-1e36-54a1-821d-8188311d1add

President Trump raised some eyebrows on Monday night after he shared a clip from the HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” featuring its star Larry David sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat.

In the topical season premiere of the long-running comedy that originally aired last month, David discovers that wearing the iconic “MAGA” hat is a great “people repellent” and starts to conveniently wear it around Los Angeles to avoid person-to-person contact.

The clip shared by the president features David driving a car and accidentally swerving into an angry biker.

“What the f— are you doing?!?” the biker asks.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t see you,” David responded behind a closed window.

The two of them pause with the biker demanding the “Seinfeld” co-creator to get out of his car. David then puts on the “MAGA” hat and apologizes again, which drastically changes the biker’s tune.

RICKY GERVAIS SWIPES OSCARS FOR INJECTING POLITICAL COMMENTARY: ‘I… TRIED TO WARN THEM’

“Just be more careful next time, OK?” the calmed biker said.

“Will do, will do,” David responded.

The president captioned the video, tweeting “TOUGH GUYS FOR TRUMP!”

Critics piled on the president, accusing him of not understanding that the HBO series was mocking the use of the famous pro-Trump gear.

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” executive producer Jeff Schaffer described David’s use of the “MAGA” hat to The Hollywood Reporter last month.

“Larry in the hat is such a dissonant image. You realized when he put it on that you just never see a person in a MAGA hat in Los Angeles. It’s like spotting a double rainbow of intolerance,” Schaffer quipped.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, Jim Acosta join MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Jennifer Rubin in ‘Liberal Hack Tournament’ Final Four

Westlake Legal Group montage CNN's Brian Stelter, Jim Acosta join MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Jennifer Rubin in 'Liberal Hack Tournament' Final Four Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/media fnc article 1cf5ab3b-886c-594e-ab1b-1d19e626770d

Smug Industries’ first annual “Liberal Hack Tournament” is down to the Final Four: CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin.

Twitter user Comfortably Smug, the unverified founder of the tournament whose identity has remained a mystery, unveiled the four remaining contenders of the viral competition after a 24-hour round of voting from the general public.

The ongoing contest has been pitting many members of the mainstream media against each other in an NCAA-style format, with only one who will be crowned the champion “liberal hack.”

Stelter, a No. 1 seed, handily won the “Way Too Online Hacks” division of the tournament against Daily Beast editor-at-large Molly Jong-Fast, earning 85.7 percent of the vote. He will face off in the Final Four against “Establishment Hack” division winner Rachel Maddow, who narrowly defeated CNN anchor Chris Cuomo with roughly 52 percent of the vote, which was seen as an upset, as Cuomo was a No. 3 seed while the MSNBC star was a No. 13 seed.

CNN’S BRIAN STELTER OMITS ABC NEWS’ SPIKED JEFFREY EPSTEIN EXPOSÉ FROM HIS ‘TOP MEDIA STORIES’ OF 2019

Meanwhile, Acosta bested his colleague, CNN anchor Don Lemon, who received attention this week after his panel mocked Trump supporters as illiterate “credulous boomer rubes.” However, Acosta, also being a No. 1 seed, was able to maintain his status, earning nearly 62 percent of the vote and winning the “Fake News Hack” division.

Rubin, the No. 2 seed who is The Washington Post’s self-described “conservative blogger,” beat out self-described “Republican” CNN commentator Ana Navarro, clinching more than 75 percent of the vote in the “Liberal Activist Hack” division.

In the upcoming Final Four, it is likely that Stelter has already secured a spot in the final contest and will easily knock out Maddow from the competition. If Acosta defeats Rubin and Stelter defeats Maddow, as expected, a CNN correspondent will be crowned champion in the first-ever “Liberal Hack Tournament.”

A spokesman for Smug Industries told Fox News: “Smug thanks every lib entrant remaining. We’re looking at real generational talents here. The final four hacks share a lot of key qualities: shamelessness, immunity to cognitive dissonance, paranoia, hypocrisy, and a loose relationship to facts. Victory will go to whoever wants it most. With 832,296 votes cast so far, one thing is clear: this is all coming down to turnout.”

One of Twitter’s most famous anonymous political personalities has debuted an NCAA-style tournament dedicated to “liberal hacks,” pitting many members of the mainstream media against each other in a highly-anticipated contest.

Twitter user Comfortably Smug, who is widely known among conservative circles for his trolling of liberal public figures, unveiled the contenders for the first annual “Smug Industries Liberal Hack Tournament.”

“It will be a March Madness style [sic] bracket where I post matchups and everyone votes in the polls,” Comfortably Smug previously announced. “In the end, there will be only one Top Liberal Hack on Twitter.”

The bracket is broken up into four categories; “Liberal Activist Hacks,” “Fake News Hacks,” “Establishment Hacks,” and “Way Too Online Hacks.”

CNN and MSNBC personalities made up the majority of the contenders. CNN’s Don Lemon and White House correspondent Jim Acosta, top seed, are competing against MSNBC anchors Brian Williams and Joy Reid in the “Fake News” bracket while CNN anchor Jake Tapper and ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos are vying to be crowned “Liberal Activist.”

Meanwhile, MSNBC has several giants in the “Establishment Hacks” bracket, including hosts Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, and Andrea Mitchell. CNN will also put up a good fight with anchors Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo, congressional correspondent Manu Raju and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin among the entrants.

And in the “Way Too Online Hacks” bracket, CNN’s media correspondent Brian Stelter, also a top seed, is seen as a heavy favorite.

The nation’s prominent newspapers are also represented in the bracket, with Washington Post columnists Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin joined by New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. George Conway, the outspoken anti-Trump critic and husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, is present in the tournament as well.

Twitter users can visit Comfortably Smug’s profile and vote in each matchup. Those with the most votes will advance to the next round.

Staff for Comfortably Smug did not immediately respond to Fox News for comment.

Don’t hold your breath, “Friends” fans.

It appears that the highly anticipated reunion special featuring the cast and creators of the hit sitcom, announced in November, is still up in the air.

HBO Max, where the special is scheduled to air, held a presentation on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, where chief content officer Kevin Reilly said that he’s still waiting on a green light.

“There’s interest all the way around, and yet we can’t seem to quite get that interest all aligned to push the button on it, so today, unfortunately, it’s still a maybe,” said Reilly said when asked about the unscripted special.

When the special was announced, it was reported that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc would all participate, as well as the show’s original creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman.

Aniston, 50, first hinted at the reunion in an October visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she was pressed for details about a possible reboot of the iconic comedy.

“Listen, we would love for there to be something but we don’t know what that something is,” said the actress. “We’re working on something.”

While on the show, Aniston would not confirm that a recent meeting between the cast members recently took place to discuss what that “something” might be.

“We are always trying to think of something to do, but we have to figure out what the right thing is,” Aniston previously told “Entertainment Tonight“. “But we will.”

‘The Conners’ stars Michael Fishman, Laurie Metcalf talk upcoming live political episode

Westlake Legal Group Michael-Fishman-Laurie-Metcalf 'The Conners' stars Michael Fishman, Laurie Metcalf talk upcoming live political episode Nate Day fox-news/person/roseanne-barr fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox-news/entertainment/features/exclusive fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 67bd1765-ae83-567a-8645-b2f5b3103786

The cast of ABC’s “The Conners” has a storied history with politics, and it looks like they have no plans to change that.

The show, which focuses on a conservative-leaning working-class family, is a spin-off of “Roseanne.” (The original series was canceled after the show’s star, Roseanne Barr, sent a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett — a former aide to then-President Barack Obama — in 2018.)

Now, “The Conners” is set to air a live episode of the show on Tuesday, Feb. 11 — the night of the New Hampshire primary that kicks off the 2020 political season.

MARTIN SHEEN SAYS HE SUPPORTS ELIZABETH WARREN’S POLICIES

Star Michael Fishman hopes the politically-charged episode will inspire democratic action.

“In our country, voting is such a powerful thing and I don’t know that we always spend the time to encourage people to vote,” Fishman, 38, recently told Fox News at the ABC portion of the Television Critics Association (TCA) event in Pasadena, Calif. “So my hope is that what we do is we can show what real-life issues kind of revolve around some of the things that are going on in the debates and other things.”

Fishman said that in the show, people will see “how a family comes together and maybe disagrees about certain things, but that we all encourage people to vote and we can do something positive and bring some humor.”

Also present at the event was Laurie Metcalf, who starred in “Roseanne” and now in “The Conners” as Jackie Harris.

Metcalf, 64, revealed that her Tony Award-winning theater background won’t be much help for the special live episode.

“My stage background will not help at all, because even though stage is live, I’ve rehearsed the hell out of it and I know what I’m doing,” the actress said. “So in a live show, it’s going to have some wiggle room either the improv or, you know, something’s going to not stick to the script. That scares the s–t out of me.”

Metcalf also said that she’s putting “extra pressure” on herself for the important episode.

At the TCA event, ABC announced that the episode will incorporate real-time election results into the plot, which will follow the Conners as they discuss the right to vote.

Adam Sandler says an Oscar nomination would be funny

Westlake Legal Group Adam-Sandler Adam Sandler says an Oscar nomination would be funny Nate Day fox-news/person/adam-sandler fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/saturday-night-live fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/genres/drama fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 628aa4d4-3a28-5ec0-a4a2-dfb8505b34db

Despite moving into more dramatic roles, Adam Sandler still has a good sense of humor.

The “SNL” alum, 53, is receiving Oscar buzz for his performance in the film “Uncut Gems,” which has shocked many fans due to his background in slapstick comedy and frequently being in films that receive poor reviews.

In the flick, Sandler plays a jeweler with a gambling problem that gets in over his head.

ADAM SANDLER’S ‘UNCUT GEMS’ RANKS 7TH FOR MOST F-WORDS IN FILM HISTORY

When asked what it would be like if he was nominated for an Academy Award, Sandler told ET: “It would be funny as h–l, man.”

Sandler was widely considered a significant snub when it came to the Golden Globe nominations and on Wednesday night, he took home the award for best actor from the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala.

“It’s not why you make a movie,” he said. “This movie in particular, I knew it was something different and I was excited to do it… I’m psyched I got to be in this movie and that s–t would be good, too.”

Sandler said that he doesn’t want to get his hopes up because he doesn’t want to feel too disappointed if he doesn’t receive the nomination.

The “Wedding Singer” star recently revealed that he insisted on changing one very specific thing in the script of “Uncut Gems” when he came on board.

In the film, Sandler’s character has a mistress, who was originally called Sadie, but Sandler requested they change her name.

“That’s my daughter’s name!” Sandler said. “And I said, ‘You can’t have my daughter’s name in this movie.'”

Larry David says Bernie Sanders presidency would be ‘great for the country’ but ‘terrible for me’

Comedian Larry David appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday night to promote the new season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” — and also share his thoughts on portraying Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live.”

With Sanders set to appear on the show Thursday, Colbert asked David if he had any questions for the U.S. senator from Vermont.

True to the “Curb” character he plays on TV, the co-creator of “Seinfeld” gave a response that was rooted in self-interest.

“I would say, I would beg him to drop out so I don’t have to keep flying in from Los Angeles to do ‘SNL,'” David said.

“I thought when he had the heart attack that would be it, I wouldn’t have to fly in from Los Angeles. But, you know, he’s indestructible. Nothing stops this man!”

David, 72, added that if Sanders, 78, wins the presidency, it’s going to be horrible for him.

“If he wins, do you know what that’s going to do to my life?” David added. “Do you have any idea? I mean, it’ll be great for the country, great for the country. Terrible for me.”

David, who lives in California, added that he didn’t want to have to keep flying to New York City to portray Sanders. He said it’s annoying whenever he hails a cab in the city now because strangers come and say “Hey, Larry!”

David has portrayed Sanders more than 10 times on “SNL,” beginning with the night of the first Democratic primary debate in 2015. He now appears to have had his fill with the gig, just as Alec Baldwin told USA Today he was “so done” with portraying President Trump on “SNL.”
