‘Frasier’ Revival Adds 2 More Original Series Actors

The revival of Frasier at Paramount+ is bringing in more faces from its title character’s past.

Dan Butler and Edward Hibbert will reprise their roles as, respectively, Bob “Bulldog” Briscoe and Gil Chesterton, Frasier Crane’s (Kelsey Grammer) former co-workers at the Seattle radio station in the original Frasier series, which ran on NBC from 1993-2004. Details on how they come back into Frasier’s life are being kept quiet for now.

“Dan Butler and Edward Hibbert have made an indelible contribution to television, and I am overjoyed to welcome them back to Frasier and for the opportunity to work together once again,” Grammer said in a statement.

Peri Gilpin (who guest-starred in the revival’s first season finale) will reprise her role as Roz in the coming season, where she’ll recur. Patricia Heaton — who starred with Grammer in Fox’s Back to You in 2007-08 — Yvette Nicole Brown, Amy Sedaris and Grammer’s daugher Greer Grammer are also set for guest roles.

The revival of Frasier follows the character as he returns to Boston for the next chapter in his life, including reconnecting with his son, Freddy (Jack Cutmore-Scott). The show’s regular cast also includes Nicholas Lyndhurst, Toks Olagundoye, Jess Salgueiro and Anders Keith.
