Kelsey Grammer

From Frasier Crane...



Identity
Psychiatrist in ‘Cheers’ & ‘Frasier’, 1984-2004.

Appearance

Egghead released into the community, with sensible suit, wacky tie and enormous pate containing big boiling brain.

Demeanour
Highly strung and relentlessly pompous windbag, but fundamentally loveable – although you’d want to kill him in real life.

...to Tom Kane



Identity
Chicago mayor in ‘Boss’, 2011-12.

Appearance

Grey pallor, granite jaw, furrowed brow – disguising a newly diagnosed brain disorder.

Demeanour
Scheming, volatile and troubled, as befits a series with a theme song of ‘Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down’. Like Tony Soprano put in charge of ‘The West Wing’.

I think Bryan Cranston deserves a place in this list!
