Niles' Frasier falls out of the closet
David Hyde Pierce (aka Niles on Frasier) has officially fallen out of the closet. The actor has pretty much kept his private life on the down low for most of his career was outed in a recent article on CNN.
"He worked at Playwrights Horizons, the Public Theater, Shakespeare in the Park and a lot of regional theaters such as the Guthrie in Minneapolis, Chicago's Goodman and Long Wharf in New Haven, Conn. Pierce got to Los Angeles in the early 1990s when his partner, actor-writer-producer Brian Hargrove, wanted to write for television."
The CNN article is actually about his stage life and is about a trillion paragraphs long, so the "outing" is somewhat hidden. His reps have indeed confirmed that Brian and David are a couple!
Congrats and welcome to the family David Hyde Pierce!
