Rick And Morty Star Slashed With Knife At NYC Restaurant
Rick and Morty star Spencer Grammer, the daughter of Frasier and X-Men movies star Kelsey Grammer, was hospitalized after being slashed by a knife-wielding man in New York City’s East Village. Sources in law enforcement tell TMZ that the incident occurred late on Friday night. A man arrived at The Black Ant restaurant as it was about to close. When workers at the restaurant told the man, who witnesses say appeared drunk, that they wouldn’t serve him, he flew into a rage. He pulled out a knife and began attacking employees and guests at the restaurant. Grammer and a friend were both wounded while trying to pull the assailant away from others.
The report states that Grammer went to the hospital, but that her injuries are not life-threatening. Grammer is said to have suffered “gashes” on her arm, while her friend sustained injuries to her back. The man fled into the night. Police are investigating.
Grammer is best known as the voice of Summer Smith in Rick and Morty. Her first acting role was in Cheers, the series where her father originated the character, Frasier Crane, though it was uncredited. She played the lead role in the ABC Family dramedy Greek, which lasted for four seasons. She also appeared in the 2013 television series Ironside.
