The cast of "Frasier" gathered together for a reunion hosted by "Good Morning America" and Entertainment Weekly. Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Peri Gilpin and Jane Leeves were all on hand to reminisce about the classic sitcom, which ended in 2004 after 11 years on NBC.

Surprisingly, Kelsey Grammer, who played psychiatrist and radio host Dr. Frasier Crane, revealed that at first he wasn’t completely on-board with the “Cheers” spinoff.

"Well my initial feelings were that Frasier should die with Cheers," Kelsey Grammer said. Luckily, that didn't happen.

On the other hand, the show immediately spoke to John Mahoney, who Frasier and Niles' father Martin Crane. "The script was so brilliant I'd be an idiot to turn it down," Mahoney said. "Plus, to work with Kelsey meant a great deal to me."

Another interesting tidbit that emerged from the reunion was that before "Friends," Roz was originally supposed to be played by Lisa Kudrow. But at the last minute, the role went to Peri Giplin. That probably worked out best for both shows.

The EW Reunions Issue hits stores on Oct. 25, but "Frasier" fans can order a special edition that features the three "Frasier" men on the cover.
