“Frasier” Dad John Mahoney Reportedly Dies At 77

John Mahoney, 77, died Sunday in hospice care in Chicago, TMZ reported yesterday.  The British-born actor was best known for his 11 years on “Frasier,” playing the father of Kelsey Grammer’s fussy lead character.  He was nominated for two Emmys and two Golden Globes and won a Screen Actors Guild prize for the role of Martin Crane, the “simpler” more down-to-earth forebear of Frasier and Niles Crane (David Hyde Pierce).  Mahoney appeared in about 30 movies, including five as a voice actor in such animated classics as “Antz” and “The Iron Giant.”
