Kelsey Grammer
Kelsey Grammer has ended a lawsuit over 2008 flop "Swing Vote" - by paying a $10 settlement to a man who alleged the film was similar to a plot he wrote years earlier.

Grammer was named as a defendant in a suit filed by Bradley Blakeman in August 2008 but was the last party left fighting the case after a judge dismissed claims against co-star Kevin Costner and the Disney executives who owned the rights.

Lopez says it was a personal phone call from Barack Obama that made him a supporter of the presidential hopeful. And the Swing Vote star hopes he can inspire the same outlook in his fellow Latino voters.

Kevin Costner has urged fans to pray for the health of his sick movie co-star Kelsey Grammer.

Grammer was hospitalized in New York after feeling faint on Sunday - just a month after he suffered a near-fatal heart attack. And Costner, who co-stars with the former Frasier actor in forthcoming movie Swing Vote, is rousing support for the 53-year-old.

He says, "We know something's going on with him. We're thinking good thoughts for him. He's one of our great comedic actors as well as dramatic. No one can get at him right now, so we just pray for him a little bit."
