June 2, 2008 - Yahoo! reports that actor Kelsey Grammer, best known to audiences as Dr. Frasier Crane, suffered a heart attack over the weekend, according to his publicist.

According to Yahoo!'s article, Grammer, 53, experienced chest pains on Saturday morning while paddle-boarding with his wife, Camille, off the Kona coast of Hawaii's Big Island, where they have a second home, spokesman Stan Rosenfield told Reuters.

The actor was immediately taken to an area hospital, where "it was determined that he had a mild heart attack," Rosenfield added. As of press time, the actor is resting and expects to be released from the hospital later in the week.

The medical emergency comes just three weeks after his FOX sitcom, Back to You, was cancelled. The actor, most recently seen on the big screen as "Beast" in X3, will return to the small screen once again, playing the patriarch of a wealthy family in ABC's new comedy pilot, "Roman's Empire."
