Frasier Crane may be trading in the gray skies of Seattle for the bright lights of Broadway. With Frasier going kaput in May, Kelsey Grammer is in talks to take over Nathan Lane's role as rapscallion producer Max Bialystock in The Producers this summer, TV Guide Online has learned. Lane and Matthew Broderick are currently two weeks into their three-month return engagement on the Great White Way. Should Grammer accept the gig, who would play Bloom to his Bialystock? "I don't know," he says. "That's one of the questions." Here's a suggestion: What about his Frasier sib David Hyde Pierce? "That's a funny idea," Grammer says. "I'm not sure if the audience is ready for that yet." In related news, Kelsey Grammer thinks I'm funny!
