Kelsey Grammer joins Transformers 4 as the human villain

05.01.2013

Now that the good guys have been cast in TRANSFORMERS 4, it is about time we started hearing who would be playing the bad guys. Deadlin is reporting that the lead villain in the Michael Bay action sequel will be played by Kelsey Grammer.

Despite having a very distinct voice (ahem, Sideshow Bob) that would make for an excellent Decepticon, Grammer will be playing the human role of Harold Attinger. There are no further details at this point aside from the fact that the character will be some sort of counter intelligence agent. This may keep in line with the redacted plot synopsis that had the technology that powers the robot aliens falling into the wrong hands with chaos ensuing.

Grammer's only other major franchise appearance was playing Beast in X-MEN: THE LAST STAND. Since then he has played against his Frasier Crane character as the Mayor of Chicago on the short-lived Starz series BOSS. Grammer was phenomenal as the despicable mayor on that show and would make a phenomenal bad guy. For me, this is a definite plus for TRANSFORMERS 4.

Grammer will join the cast that features Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Jack Reynor, and Nicola Peltz. TRANSFORMERS 4 will hit theaters on June 27, 2014.

Since we're now talking X-Men, look back at the Dark Phoenix saga. Tell me a younger, buffer Grammer wouldn't be the ultimate Sebastian Shaw!

His Beast voice was perfection, but I think actually physically casting him was a mistake...

This is great casting. Kelsey can definitely play a charismatic villain.

Transformers 4 is easily becoming my favorite film out of the franchise so far at this rate.

I mean this in the most endearing way possible but to me Kelsey Gramer just has this menacing look, even in his voice (hello he is sideshow bob). I think it would be great to see him play a villain in a big movie like Transformers.

I was hoping he'd be making an appearance in Days of Future Past, but I guess that's not in the cards.

It would be awesome to see Kelsey as Beast again. If Days of future past isnt the case, lets hope Fox moves forward with another sequel set in present time, with the return or Kelsey, Alan, and co.

That would be great. I wish Fox would go ahead and make some non-Wolverine solo X-films as well. I'm all for a good Logan movie, but there are other characters who could hold their own too.

He was possibly the best part of X-Men Last Stand.
