Kelsey Grammer's new role: "I do say some dirty words, and there's an occasional boob"

Kelsey Grammer's emotional interview with Piers Morgan airs tonight at 9pmET/PT. We caught up with Grammer after the interview in the green room to talk about his new show "Boss," which premieres October 21 on Starz. "There's some naughtiness in it," says Grammer. "I do say some dirty words, and there's an occasional boob."

Grammer described the concept: "A political animal, is the guy I play, who refuses to give up power...to watch his fight – he is an amazing fighter." He also reflected on the interview with Piers:

"I think it went ok, reasonably unscathed," said Grammer. "Actually I made myself cry this time. I'm really embarrassed." (Here's that moment.)

Watch the full interview tonight, 9pmET/PT.

    Dear Mr. Morgan,

    I watch your show every night and I need to ask you to please please please allow your guest to answer your questions before you ask another. It is incredibly frustrating how often you do this. You ask a brilliant question that I want to hear the answer to and then you interrupt and I never get to hear the response. STOP IT !

      I'm with you, Blanca. That interview with Jermaine Jackson was driving me crazy.

    Piers...STOP making the Tea Party out to be about a bunch of racists and gay haters! THEY ARE NOT! They ARE against BIG government like Kelsey said and lower taxes. By the way, THIS is something NO ONE BRINGS UP....President OBAMA is NOT, ....I REPEAT NOT for GAY Marriage! So, Please do NOT make it sound like the Tea Party people are a bunch of Hymophobes!! VERY unfair especially when our OWN President said he believes MARRIAGE should be between a man and a WOMAN!

      I like Hank somewhat, but I rlaely blame the person in charge of casting. Kelsey is great, and people like him. But the people they cast for the wife, daughter and son are rlaely lame and unlikable. Don't they know that the fringe players are the most important part of a sitcom?! Seinfeld would've been a disaster if it weren't for George Elaine and Kramer. Fraiser was a great show because of Niles, Daphne, the dad and Roz. Hank's supporting cast was awful.

    Mr. Morgan, I found it a bit disappointing to hear you saying ..."finally you went British.... " after that I can't quote you exactly but you continued saying to Mr. Grammer that if he would have done that (getting a British wife, that is) he could have had a better life and less heart aches. Take into account that you are in the USA, the country that has given you a job and lots of satisfactions, and American viewers who like you, please avoid that sort of remarks since it sounds offensive. I hope it is just a way of joking around, but it is not the first time I hear that sort of remark in your show. Thanks (if you really read the posts)

    Your interview with Kelsey Grammer made all the housewives feel hopeless about American family value. How about the two small children whom Kelsey traded for his new lifestyle which Pier Morgan seemed to embrace? We would never want to see any shows or movies that has Kelsey Grammer's appearance because they will give us very hard feeling thinking about what he stands for.

    Thank you for introducing so many interesting people to us. We identified with excess tragedy in Kelsey Grammar's life and the gift of a love now in his life.

    Our similar story resonates as we enter our 4th year of marriage at the new ages of 80 and 82.

    Never miss a program if possible.

    Everyday life with an ordinary wife and small children are not always as good as a Ferry Wheel ride. We would like to hear her voice on major network as well. Does Kelsey get more coverage because he is a better talker or more connected?

    Kelsey Grammer, keeps making a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. This is the same guy that was on ET with Cammilla less than 3yrs ago talking about how she saved him. You really think this new wife married you because of you good looks? Pls be quiet and show some class. No matter how you feel about her she is the mother of your kids. What number is this wife again?

    I had to change the channel during Kelsey Grammer's interview. Not to judge but what is it with men when they become rich and powerful – name ONE who has left his much younger wife for a woman his own age! Do you honestly think that a 30-yr-old flight attendant doesn't have stars in her eyes? It's 2011, not 1811, and birth control is readily available and surprisingly effective yet it ddn't take long for girlfriend/wife #4 to seal that deal and become pregnant did it?? One word of advice My Dear: watch how the ex-wife is/was treated because you may be facing the same scenario down the road...

    I was so disgusted to hear Piers gush on about "how romantic" Kelsey's story is. Gee... let's see.... a MARRIED man meets up with a very young women he sees for a few minutes on a plane... doesn't want to meet in a bar because that would sound cheap (ugh! UGH!!) so they meet for coffee and have this TERRIBLY romantic moment kissing. He was married! Did you notice how in his version he only had good intentions- trying to give a "parting gift" to his ex.? There is nothing to be proud of in this story. If he met his new wife after he was divorced he could call it the "romance of the century". (cough cough.... until the NEXT romance comes along.....)

    Actually, I thought the interview with Kelsey was fascinating. Kelsey is learning and growing. I always thought Camille was not his equal. I think he did rush into this new marriage and might be disappointed. But I do wish him the best because he has had harrowing tragedies in his life that would mess up most people. The interview was fine.

    Piers, I hope you let Camille Grammar come on the show and defend herself. It really was disgusting how you were gushing over Kelsey. He obviously has to take back all the kind words he had for her to justify his infidelity. Are you forgetting his addiction which she saw him through more than once, and four marriages. What a disgusting man moving a mistress into his wife's home.Since Frazier ended, he's had one bomb after another. His time has truly past. Talk about wanting to be famous, isn't that why he became an actor. Four marriages, drugs, alcoholic, lier, cheater = major demons. Get it together Piers and stop trying to influence the audience in their opinion on a subject and just do an open interview, very disappointing and time to turn the channel until they get a better replacement for Larry King, good news is there are a lot of other options in the 9pm time slot.

    I too was completely shocked by Mr. Morgan's "gushing" over Kelsey Grammer. I don't often watch the show but I saw the guest and tuned in to watch Piers Morgan confront him with his ridiculour behavior, just as I would should I ever run into him. Instead of Piers Morgan, we got Paula Abdul. Romance of the century??? Are you seriously not going to probe into the previous 3 marriages or the fact that he's known this woman for 2 minutes? Mr. Morgan is no longer the hard hitting journalist he once was. One last word of advise to the currentl Mrs. Grammer: "A man who marries his mistress has just created a job opportunity."
