I initially thought of him too but I would think his most famous role wasn't in that sitcom but his role as the private investigator. The only other tall and hairy guy in a successful sitcom I can think of is owner of the Boston bar, or the shrink who frequented the bar and became a radio host

That's who I'm thinking of.

The show about the Boston bar ended 20 years ago, though - not "a few years ago", as it says in the BI.

From Blind Gossip:

He's Really Into Twinkies

It's too bad that Hostess is going out of business, because this funny actor is really into Twinkies. Although he has done tons of films and television shows, this actor is best known for his role on a successful sitcom that ended a few years ago. Despite the success of that show, he keeps working. In fact, he has a starring role in more than one project next year. Like many Hollywood actors , he has been married and dated beautiful women.

Those are all for show. He is actually into boys. He likes them young (Although not underage) and small in stature and hairless. Basically he likes twinks who look the exact opposite of him. He spends a good amount of his time and money on young rent boys in Hollywood.
I think Jack Geller fits this - the acting history (far more so than Frazier who is mostly tv), the dating history, plus he's also the physical opposite of what he allegedly likes.

I agree that is doesn't fit Richard buuut the Hostess could be a reference from that program as the crazy clean freak was always the hostess!

I wondered perhaps Baby Kangaroo?

I agree with some other posters that there seems to be a friendly connection here as it mentions two quotes from the show: "twinkies" and "hostess". But the quote: "Despite the success of that show, he keeps working" seems to suggest that whatever show its referring to, it has to be one of the leading actors for him to have earned enough money to never have to work again. It also has to be someone large in stature and hairy which I don't think really applies to baby kangaroo.

For me whenever I hear the word 'twinkie' I think of Richard in Friends with Monica when her dad says 'Richard's got a twinkie in the city'!

Oh actually I've just realised that he would fit the blind
Wouldn't say the he is 'best-known' for his role in a successful sitcom which ended a few years ago, though.

Is he best known for that role thoughconfused:

I was thinking Frasier Crane.
Hairy? Don't think so. More of a slaphead is our Frasier.

I agree 'Richard' doesn't fit the blind as he is not best known for that role as he was only in a few eps. Surely his best known role was as a P.I. in the 80s although he definitely fits the opposite of "small in stature and hairless" description.
The only reason he did kind of fit was he was mentioned on the radio a few weeks ago and the PI came up - apart from the DJ no one else had heard of it. Maybe it's an age thing!! I doubt many say under 25s would know it but they would know the sitcom.

From CDAN:

He Is Going Downhill Fast

This actor is A list and always will be. If he lives for 50 more years and never makes another movie he would be A list. Academy Award winner/nominee? Absolutely. A list name recognition? Definitely. Strangest actor around right now? Oh yeah. Our actor rarely showers. The only time he showers is when he is making a movie and then only every few days. He has turned into the laziest person in the world. Meals are brought to him. Many different meals that he takes a bite from each. He is not a glutton. Weight gain is not an issue. Sex? Umm, he is not doing the work but he calls over women who are willing to do the work for him. That is of course if they can get over the smell of a guy who has not showered in a week and has food all over his clothes or drinks. He loves to drink. Like a fish.

Then he likes to get up and do scenes from his performances and makes the people in the room watch. He gets confused and mixes up lines from different roles and refuses to do a couple of the roles and gets very angry if people ask. He is a very angry guy and will throw things and yell and scream and the name calling is out of control. Ditto with any kind of slur that he can think of. He then forgets he did it or pretends he does not remember and returns to normal a few hours later. It is probably Alzheimer's or the beginning stages of it but he refuses to go to a doctor.

I was thinking Dirty Harry because of his strange behaviour during the election campaign but the: "if he lives for 50 more years" line threw me as he is not in the prime of his life so I'm wondering if its someone a lot younger?

I have no idea who it is. i'm going through states in my head, and nobody is jumping out at me.

OH! Scrap that, I get the original clue now I assume it's the elder of the two we're talking about?

to me it is someone middle aged at least due to the Alzheimer comment. Oscar winner and known for famous roles so I'm guessing Dirty Harry, Mad Max, Here's Johnny, Scarface

I was thinking possibly Sweeney Todd or Benjamin Button?

Both are quite slovenly looking

I think stating that the possible memory loss might be the early stages of Alzheimer's and being able to live another 50 years would suggest someone aged around 60 and on the verge of old age as opposed to someone like Dirty Harry or even Scarface. Also blind suggests that the actor could do the work when doing the business. These old guys mentioned would surely struggle.

I did wonder about Doug Ross for a moment - known for BO and womanising but the rest doesn't really fit. Hmm...

Well I'm still none the wiser! Probably just being really thick, but there is obviously something I'm missing the clue!

She's not named after two separate states (eg first name then second name). There are two states that have the same name, but slightly different (see below), and one part of her name is that.

If I've got it right the clue is North and South but not Carolina

I see on the BG site, people are stumped. It's clearly yet another a misleading blind as only a couple of all time great US sitcoms ended in the last 10 years and none of those actors fit.

This B-/C+ Scientology all movie actress is having a fling with a reporter who writes some very inside dirt on the church.

Mad Max springs to mind when reading this. Another one is the second Wicker Man who seems a bit "eccentric" at times.
