John Mahoney, cranky dad on Frasier, dies at 77”

Actor John Mahoney-a longtime Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member and someone known to millions for playing the title character's father on the NBC television sitcom Frasier-died February 4 of cancer at age 77, multiple outlets have reported.

The English-born actor died in Chicago Sunday, his publicist told The Hollywood Reporter.

John Mahoney played the iconic role of Martin Crane, the no-nonsense father in TV sitcom Frasier, for all 11 seasons until 2014.

He was victor of a Screen Actors Guild award, and a Tony award for his theatre work. "Tonight's opening night performance of You Got Older has been cancelled". He was invited to join Steppenwolf Theatre by founding members John Malkovich and Gary Sinise because the troupe needed an actor to play older roles.

The actor also drew praise for his role in Greg Berlanti's 2000 film The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy.

Hollywood beckoned, and Mahoney quickly became an in-demand character actor on the small and large screens thanks to memorable roles in such films as Tin Men, Moonstruck, Eight Men Out and Say Anything, playing the father of the teenage girl relentlessly pursued by John Cusack's character.

The character actor was born in England, but moved to the U.S. at the age of 19 to teach English at a college in IL, said Variety.

He moved to the United States as a teenager, joining the military which helped him become an American citizen. "We were all blessed to have spent 11 glorious years together", Greenberg wrote alongside a picture of the show's cast with Mahoney. In addition to Frasier, Mahoney also appeared on Cheers, Becker, ER, Burn Notice, In Treatment, and Hot in Cleveland. He was a long-respected British stage actor who would earn his greatest fame playing a blue-collar American cop on a long-running popular sitcom. Mahoney was unmarried and never had children. According to multiple reports, he was in hospice care when he died.
