Kelsey Grammer On Fame, Comedy, Chicago and His New Drama, 'Boss'

Shooting a television show on location isn't a situation that offers actors much privacy, unless they're in a forest outside Vancouver or in the desert near Albuquerque or some remote place like that.
How about downtown Chicago on a bustling summer day? Last Friday, as he shot a pivotal scene from the upcoming Starz drama 'Boss' on the sidewalk outside Chicago's City Hall, Kelsey Grammer had almost no privacy. But the actor didn't appear to need a buffer, let alone a wall of bodyguards. He affably talked to passersby during breaks from the afternoon shoot, and genially posed for photos with anyone who asked.
After he'd wrapped for the day, he sat down for an interview in which he talked about the similarities between his own life as a public figure and the intensely scrutinized lives of politicians like Mayor Tom Kane, his character on 'Boss.'
"My life's been covered for the last 25 years -- everything, every moment, every single pitfall," Grammer said.
