Kelsey Grammer To Play Beast In X-Men 3

From the IMDB:

Grammer To Play Blue Beast in 'X-Men 3'

Fans of Kelsey Grammer are set to find him tough to recognize in his next project - he's playing a furry blue monster in the second X-Men sequel. In X-Men 3, the former Frasier star will play oversized mutant Beast, who has not yet appeared in any of the franchise's installments. While there has been a shocked reaction to Grammer's casting, producers of the movie insist he's the perfect choice for the part - because Beast is the most intelligent of all the mutants. Snatch star Vinnie Jones is also set to undergo a huge image overhaul when he plays villainous Juggernaut in the movie. His character is a 900 pound metal-clad battering ram. The sci-fi series stars Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Famke Janssen, Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Romijn. The movie, to be directed by Matthew Vaughn, is set to debut in May next year.


Nice casting, but I rather like Vinnie Jones' casting as Juggernaut even more. I love him in Lock Stock and Snatch.

kelsey grammer does make sense as beast, ya know as the smart one and all(he even sorta looks like him), but doesnt even beast have to flip out every once and a while? i dunno if kelsey could pull off the action aspect of the role. with respect to vinnie jones, bullet tooth tony is one of my favorite movie characters and should be more than able to play juggernaut.

Another perfect casting move by the X-men crew. Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Xavier, Magneto. They've been able to not only get actors that look the part, but can act it flawlessly.

These X-Men movies keep getting better and I can only hope that the trend continues, Nice casting ;-D I was a little unsure about the Kelsey Grammer selection but then I was weirded out by all the Batman choices as well, and i ended up liking all of them, and hopefully I'll like the american psycho Batman too.

I love the casting of both of these guys. This is actually the new benchmark in my mind of a good hero movie.

Has anybody else noticed that Kelsey Grammer is the Executive Producer of Medium? I guess too many years of comedy have really made him crave the darker side of Hollywood.
