Two new faces have joined the cast of the Paramount+ Frasier reboot, which was first announced in 2021: The boys actor Jess Salgueiro and newcomer Anders Kieth. Variety reports that the pair will join previously announced cast members Kelsey Grammar, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Jack Cutmore-Scott.
In the follow-up, which has yet to receive a premiere date, Grammar reprises his role as the titular psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane. This series around, Frasier working in a new city with a new collection of characters. British comic Lyndhurst is reportedly set to play an “old friend” of the doctor, while Cutmore-Scott joins the cast as another lead: Frasiers estranged firefighter son Freddy.
Salguiero, who had a brief but memorable turn as Hughie’s ill-fated partner Robin The boys, stars as Eve, Freddy’s roommate. Salguiero also has an upcoming role in Godzilla series underway at Apple TV+.
About Variety, Eve is “spontaneous, outgoing and bursting with creative energy, whether prompted or not. Eve is a breath of fresh air.” With an “innate ability” to connect with both Freddy and his father, Eve creates a “critical bridge between father and son as they try to reconcile.”
Keith, meanwhile, will make his on-screen debut in the series. Tthe young performer just graduated from Juilliard last year, and joins the cast as Frasiernephew David. The son of Niles and Daphne, David was born during the two-part series finale. Now, as an adult, the character is “an awkward college freshman with a penchant for unabashed observations” who takes after his parents in three main ways: he has Niles’ “intelligence,” Daphne’s “smile,” and none of their polish.
Although grammar has long expressed enthusiasm about a potential reboot, not all news from the set has been favorable. A recent report from RadarOnline.com claims that the new “Z List” the series will have “no lavish sets” and “none of the beloved faces fans held dear.” The same report shares, however, that grammarthe only returning cast member – reinvigorates the character with the same “delicious one-liners that made him so famous to begin with.”
