Kelsey Grammer - TCA News

via press release



When presenting a show to a room filled with television critics, most stars are all business.  But things got very personal today for Kelsey Grammer, the star of BOSS, the acclaimed original drama on STARZ, when his cell phone rang during the network's TCA presentation in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton. While discussing the second season of the series, (premiering Friday, August 17, 9:00PM ET/PT) Grammer (who won the Golden Globe® for Best Actor for his role as the fictional Chicago Mayor, Tom Kane) surprised the room when he answered his cell phone while on stage -- while some might have ignored the ringing or cut the call short, Grammer took some time, about a minute and a half, to chat with his wife Kayte. After explaining that he was on stage and passing along a telephone phone number to his better half, Grammer got right back to the business at hand, telling the audience that " "some things that are more important than others and the well-being of my wife sits atop the charts."

 Grammer also said that according to many of the police officers he's encountered in the Windy City, his portrayal of Tom Kane has an uncanny resemblance to the withering stare of the former Mayor Richard Daley.
