  • Kelsey Grammer mulls a GOP political career as he stars in Broadway show

    Kelsey Grammer is back on Broadway in “La Cage Aux Folles” playing a gay cabaret owner. Interestingly, the openly Republican Hollywood star (a rarity) told the entertainment website PopEater.com he was pro gay marriage.

    “I don’t have an issue about it,” he explained.

    Popeater.com asked him how hard it was being a Palin fan in a big Obama town.

    You’re a Republican. What’s easier in Hollywood — being a Republican or a cocaine addict?

    Yes, I am a Republican. And gosh, I don’t think you can lose your job because you’re addicted to cocaine.

    Can you lose your job because you’re a Republican?

    I think you can. It can affect your livelihood. Drug use in Hollywood does not affect your livelihood. I clearly am in the minority, as a Republican. It’s fine. There are some principles and issues for me that are worth claiming rather than pretending I’m something that I’m not.

    Do you, Chuck Norris and Arnold Schwarzenegger get together and commiserate?

    [Laughs] No! It’s not really like that. I have a lovely life. I have certain political views about small government and that’s where I live. At the heart of my beliefs about being a Republican is the idea that the individual is America’s greatest national treasure.

    Sounds like a stump speech to me. Could we see Senator Grammer?

    It’s been in the back of my mind for some time to possibly volunteer my services to the country at some point. We’ll see… there are a lot of things to consider.
