(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) A Hollywood actor and a Republican, Kelsey Grammer, became emotional during his recent appearance on the syndicated program “Live with Kelly and Ryan” when he started talking about his portrayal of Pastor Chuck Smith in a new motion picture titled “Jesus Revolution.”
Grammer’s commented on his part in the film after the show aired a clip from the motion picture, according to Faithwire.
“I love this movie,” he said through tears. “I really love it.”
Grammer also said that Kayte Walsh, his wife, loved the movie too when they both saw the first cut of the film in their home.
“When Kayte saw it she said, ‘Oh my God, it’s the best thing you’ve ever done,’” he said. “She started crying.”
Grammer also told hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest about the character that he plays.
“[Smith] is a man looking for his own faith and finds it as well. A man whose church is empty. He can’t get traction and he’s started to think he’s going to be fired from his job as a pastor.”
“This hippie comes into his life,” he added. “And he finds a new purpose and started a movement that’s still going. It’s extraordinary.”
After Ripa asked Grammer if the film was a true story, he said that it is.
He then told the hosts that he has been approached by several people who knew that he is playing the pastor in the movie.
“’You’re playing Chuck Smith! Oh, I listened to him all the time.’ Or they’d say, ‘He married us’ or ‘I was baptized by Chuck Smith,’” Grammer said.
“You can see this light in their eyes,” he added before he started crying again.
Grammer, 67, who is well-known for playing Frasier Crane for 20 years in the television series Frasier and Cheers.
He also says that he’s a Christian. However, his statement is not true, because he’s been making statements that completely contradict the Christian faith. In a 2010 interview with New York magazine, Grammer said that he is pro-choice, but doesn’t “advocate for abortion” — a statement that doesn’t make sense. And, according to his interview with Pierce Morgan on CNN, Grammer also said that he doesn’t oppose the so-called same-sex “marriage.”
“I wouldn’t sign on to that… I guess I’m more Libertarian in that way. I think marriage is up to two people that love each other.”
