• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

This American actor is most famous for his 20-year stint playing Dr. Frasier Crane on Cheers and Frasier (he holds the record for the longest duration of portraying a character on TV, tied only with James Arness for Gunsmoke, not counting voice actors). One of the few, if not the only, actors to receive three different Emmy nominations for the same character on three different shows (Frasier, Cheers, Wings).

His second most famous role is that of Sideshow Bob (Krusty's former sideshow partner who tried to frame Krusty for armed robbery, but now plots to murder Bart after Bart proved that Krusty is innocent) on The Simpsons.

Played Beast in X-Men: The Last Stand. Also played Chuck Darling in the short-lived Back To You and starred in the ill-fated Down Periscope. Executive produced shows such as Girlfriends, The Game and Medium. He has had numerous problems with alcohol, having started drinking at age nine (but his family life has been so tragic it's hard to blame him). His daughter is Spencer Grammer. He also once flipped a Dodge Viper. Lest we forget that he was Gary the Rat, and appeared in both of Donbluth 's Anastasia adaptations.

A self-admitted "former Beach Bum from Florida". Known to be a Republican, and really smart (just take a look at his forehead).
