Is Fox stealthily assembling a Frasier reunion?
A couple of weeks after Frasier himself (Kelsey Grammer) joined the cast of the upcoming legal drama Proven Innocent, Jane Leeves — who played Daphne Moon, Niles Crane's (David Hyde Pierce) wife, on the long-running NBC sitcom — will be a series regular on Season 2 of The Resident, according to Deadline.
Leeves will play Dr. Kitt Voss, a hotshot orthopedic surgeon, on the Matt Czuchry-led medical procedural. She'll find herself getting attention from the creepy hospital CEO Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood) and butting heads with cardiothoracic surgeon AJ "The Raptor" Austin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner).
Now that Frasier and Daphne are on Fox, this means that David Hyde Pierce will have to join Last Man Standing as a effete Niles-esque foil for Tim Allen's man's man to complete the trifecta. (We're not saying we want this, just that it would satisfy the rule of three.)
The Resident Season 2 premieres this fall on Fox.
