First celeb death for a while where I did the audible 'ah nooooo ' upon hearing about. Second only to niles as the best character on the show. Always hoped for a reunion of some sort for frasier. Very sad to hear this news. My desert island box set. Never gets old. Raise a can of ballentines to u tonight marty.

So sad.
Im half way through the frasier box set i got for Christmas. He is fantastic in it. They all are but some of his comments and expressions are hilarious.
Rip.

Have to say though, I was a bit shocked to find out a while back that he was only 53 at the start of Frasier. He looked way older, retirement age at the very least!

That's how good he was at getting into character.

Very sad to hear this. He was hilarious in the role. I always remember the episode when Fraser was stressing about getting older and shouted to Martin about how his life was over, now that he was middle aged. Martin turns around and says,' Well how do you think I feel having a middle aged son?!'

My heart sank when I saw this too. Frasier is one of my favourite sitcoms and he was fantastic as Martin Crane. He brought a real warmth dignity and depth to a character who could have been a cheap counterpoint to the two sons. I can't say I'm familiar with of his other work. I saw him in supporting roles in a couple of films but they weren't a patch on his work in Frasier. Maybe it sucks more when a person who has made you laugh dies?
