Actor Kelsey Grammer recalled auditioning for the part of Frasier Crane on 'Cheers,' a character introduced the third season who would later get his own spin-off. When he was told he'd be taped for the audition and have the tape sent to those who were in charge of casting the show at NBC, he "went home and found a pair of yellow pants my mother had given me," Grammer said. "I'd never worn them. They were Christian Dior, and I thought, 'This is just what Frasier... would wear.' I went over to the Gulf & Western building in my yellow pants."
Littlefield said he clearly remembers watching Grammer's tape. "Up came Kelsey's face, and we all started laughing when we saw him," he said.
"I don't know if that was a compliment or not," Grammer said. "I thought I looked rather dashing in my yellow pants."
