2. Niles You Say?

Fasier’s brother “Niles” played by David Hyde Pierce was not intended to exist. Those that remember Frasier from Cheers might note that he’d never spoken of a brother. This is because show creators only wrote in the character Niles after realizing how much Pierce resembled a young Grammer. They reviewed The Powers That Be, a short-lived politically-based sitcom that Pierce had been in and after an interview with the actor, decided that Niles just had to be.
