Storyline

Michael Keaton guest-stars as Blaine Sternin, Lilith's half-brother. Frasier loathes him, as over the years Blaine has come up with numerous schemes to bilk Frasier out of his hard-earned money. Blaine arrives at Frasier's house in a wheelchair, claiming that his accident has made him a changed man, a man of God. Frasier doesn't believe it for a second, but the others are outraged at his accusations and the lengths that he will go to prove Blaine to be nothing but a con man. Written by Anonymous

A con man comes a-callin'
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Wheels of Fortune" is one of the best Frasier episodes ever. It stars Michael Keaton as Blane Sternin, Lilith's miscreant half-brother who once stole Frasier's precious salt server. He now appears in a wheelchair as a Bible-thumping minister, and Frasier is determined to unmask him. It won't be easy, since everyone believes in his sincerity, Martin especially liking him because he can stab a fork into his thigh and leave it there.

Michael Keaton is a riot as Blane; the scene in the hotel convention room where Blane holds his religious ceremony is not to be missed. Make sure you watch the episode until the very end.
