Kelsey Grammer - Kelsey Grammer Cites Republican Leanings For Boss Cancellation
Kelsey Grammer has decided that his public political leanings - as a staunch supporter of the Republican party - lead to his Emmy snub and the cancellation of his latest project, Boss, The Daily Mail reports.
"Now explain something to me, you get a Golden Globe for 'Boss,' but you don't even get an Emmy nomination?" Jay Leno asked the Frasier star. "Yeah, its hard to figure," Grammer responded. "It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it's possible, I mean, I am a, I'm a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood." He then went onto ask a question only to answer it himself, which may give more of an indication as to his recent decline in form. "Do I believe it's possible that some young person, young voting actor, or even older voting member for the Emmys, would sit there and go, 'Yeah, that's a great performance, but oooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?' Grammer queried, before answering sarcastically: "I don't believe that's possible."
Instead of who the show's star votes for, the network decided that low figures were the reason for cancelling Boss. And even though he's an ardent republican, at least he sticks to convictions; he is a an member of the Party and has expressed an interest in politics saying he may someday run for United States Congress.
