The "Frasier" sequel series at Paramount+ has cast Nicholas Lyndhurst opposite series lead Kelsey Grammer, Variety has learned exclusively.

Lyndhurst is now the first cast member announced to join the new iteration of the beloved sitcom. The role marks a reunion for Grammer and Lyndhurst, who previously starred together in "Man of La Mancha" for the English National Opera at the London Coliseum.

Plot details are being kept mostly under wraps for the series, but the official logline states, "Frasier is off to a different city with new challenges to face, new relationships to forge, and an old dream or two to finally fulfill."

Lyndhurst will play Alan Cornwall, described as "Frasier's old college buddy turned university professor. British, boozy and larger than life, Alan has an intellect on par with Frasier's—if only he ever felt like using it. Alan's mischievous streak might be just what Frasier could use to shake up his routine, while Frasier's thoughtful guidance might help Alan find some of the direction he's been missing in his own life."

This feels like some kind of Cookdandbombd singular event.
And great news to cheer me up on the day my mum gets deathly ill.

I suppose it makes a certain sense, since the original plan was to cast David Jason as Frasier.

Ha ha, shit me!

I'd been meaning to start a thread, as there's a truly bizarre campaign against this revival from some press outlets, primarily the Daily Mail. Really disproportionately contemptuous. The most recent one the other day was an unnamed source talking about how the show is going to be awful because it has "Z-list writers". There's venom in the article that the show won't be bringing back Niles, but the lack of Niles is also attributed (with similar tabloid venom) to DHP asking for more money than he deserves. It's so odd. Somebody clearly has it in the show, beyond what you would reasonably accept.



I've said this in previous threads on the revival, but I'm quite happy with it being a fresh start, as Frasier was to Cheers. I don't really want Niles and Daphne, and Frasier doing a radio show with Roz, and a massive hole where Martin should be. I want to see Frasier at a different stage of his life.

And I am unexpectedly unironically delighted to see Lyndhurst in it. Why not!

I could hear the Dick Barton music playing in my head after I saw this news, as I raced to CaB to post this only to find someone had got there first.


bet you're loving this on the cook'd and bomb'd forum aren't you


ALAN CORNWALL? even that sounds like a H.S. Art post


Genuinely believe Lyndhurst is a wonderful comic (and serious) actor, so this gives me an incentive to watch.
