Kelsey Grammer reflected on refusing to "apologize" for his faith. In a recent interview, the 68-year-old actor, who was raised a Christian Scientist and plays a pastor in the new faith-based film "Jesus Revolution," opened up about how his relationship with religion has evolved throughout his life. "I've had hiccups," the "Frasier" star admitted to USA Today. "I've had some tragic times." He continued, "I have wrestled with those and worked my way through them: sometimes rejecting faith, sometimes rejecting God even, in a period of being pretty angry about it, like, 'Where were you?' That kind of thing." "But I have come to terms with it and have found great peace in my faith and in Jesus.

It's not cavalier – Jesus made a difference in my life.That's not anything I'll apologize for." In "Jesus Revolution," Grammer portrays Pastor Chuck Smith, a minister who befriends hippie street preacher Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie) in the early 1970s.

Smith invites Frisbee and his followers into his traditional Southern California church to the dismay of his aging congregation.Together they lead a spiritual movement that attracts thousands of new followers, including future Evangelical pastor and author Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney).  "Jesus Revolution" was a surprise hit at the box office, more than doubling industry estimations when it premiered last weekend.The Lionsgate Christian drama was forecasted to earn around $6 or $7 million in ticket sales but raked in more than $15 million and placed third overall.

Ahead of "Jesus Revolution's" debut, Grammer spoke with Fox News Digital about the film and the strong connection that he felt to the story and his character.
