Kelsey Grammer Kick-starts Republican Presidential Bid With Role in La Cage aux Folles

In this week's issue of New York, Adam Sternbergh chats with bootstraps conservative Kelsey Grammer about the failure of ABC's Hank, his new social network for psychics, his plans to someday run for Senate (and someday the presidency, maybe), and his upcoming part in Broadway's La Cage aux Folles as half of a gay couple posing as husband and wife to fool the right-wing parents of their son's fiancée. How's Grammer's kissing ability? “He’s one of the best I’ve ever had,” says his co-star Douglas Hodge. “It’s like kissing John Wayne.”
