FRASIER Star John Mahoney Dies at 77

John Mahoney, the beloved dad on “Frasier,” has died in Chicago … TMZ has learned.

According to John’s publicist, he passed away Sunday in hospice care.

The British-born actor famously played Martin Crane, the father of Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce’s characters, for 11 seasons of “Frasier.”

John most recently had a recurring role in “Hot in Cleveland.” Besides his TV success, John was in a ton of movies — including “The American President,” “Primal Fear,” “Striking Distance,” “In the Line of Fire,” and “Eight Men Out” — during more than 30 years in show biz.

He won a SAG Award in 2000 for “Frasier” — and was nominated for 2 Emmys and 2 Golden Globes. John was also active in theatre, and won a Tony in 1986.
