From The Streets To Your Screens: Homeless Celebrities

Kelsey Grammer


TV star Kelsey Grammer has been entertaining us all since the 80s! Who could have suspected that this talented actor, comedian, television producer, director, and writer, was once homeless? In a 1994 interview with “Entertainment Tonight”, Grammer admitted he used to be homeless when he was a struggling actor in NYC. He camped out with his motorcycle in an alleyway behind a theater he performed at. His lucky break came when a former Juilliard classmate and Broadway co-star Mandy Patinkin recommended Grammer to a New York casting director for what was supposed to be a six-episode job, but he ended up becoming a regular cast member on the hit TV show, “Cheers”.


Grammer spent two decades playing the role of Frasier Crane on “Cheers” and then its spin-off “Frasier”. He is the only actor to be nominated for an Emmy Award for three different television series, all for the same character, Frasier Crane in “Cheers”, “Frasier” and a guest appearance on “Wings”. Grammer has been married four times, has six children and one grandchild. He has an estimated net worth of $60 million.
