John Mahoney, who you may remember as the cranky dad on the hit show "Frasier," has died. Mahoney was 77.
He passed away Sunday in Chicago after a brief hospitalization. The cause of death was not immediately provided.
In "Frasier," the hit "Cheers" spinoff that aired from 1993 to 2004, Mahoney played Martin Crane, a disabled ex-policeman who parked himself in a battered old armchair in Frasier's chic Seattle living room.
