Kelsey Grammer, 68, became emotional as he opened up about his faith when he promoted his new movie about a pastor who allowed hippies into his congregation.
Best known for his role as psychiatrist Dr. Frasier on Cheers as well as its spin-off Frasier.
He is now set to star in Jesus Revolution, which is based on the book of the same name. it follows youth minister Greg Laurie, Christian hippie Lonnie Frisbee, and pastor Chuck Smith as they participate in the Jesus movement in California during the 1960s.
While talking about his project on Live With Kelly and Ryan, he said in between tears that the film was an ‘uplifting’ and ‘good’ movie.
He also said that his wife, Kayte Walsh, was also moved after watching it for the first time.
“It’s really uplifting. It’s a good movie. My wife and I saw it together. She was just dissolved in tears and said, ‘It’s the best thing you’ve ever done,’” he said.
Grammer also revealed that he was raised a Christian Scientist but he became a Protestant.
In an interview with USA Today, he said that his relationship with God has become stronger over the years.
“I’ve had hiccups. I’ve had some tragic times. I have wrestled with those and worked my way through them: sometimes rejecting faith, sometimes rejecting God even, in a period of being pretty angry about it, like, ‘Where were you?’ That kind of thing,” he said.
“But I have come to terms with it and have found great peace in my faith and in Jesus. It’s not cavalier – Jesus made a difference in my life. That’s not anything I’ll apologize for.”
