Kelsey Grammer pursued Beast cameo in X-Men: DOFP; wishes to return again

06.23.2014

Given that the headline is a slight spoiler all in itself, let's just assume the rest of this article is spoiler territory for those who haven't seen X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. With that said, one of the more welcome cameos at the end of the film was that of Beast. Futhermore, it was actor Kelsey Grammer reprising his role. X-MEN: THE LAST STAND may have gotten a lot of things wrong, but casting Mr. Grammer was not one of them. It may be a small surprise to you that Kelsey actually sought out his cameo at the end of FUTURE PAST.

In his own words:

Actually I called Bryan (Singer). I bumped into Hugh Jackman and he said, ‘Oh you’re gonna be in another X-Men, mate!’ and I said, ‘No I’m not, I don’t know anything about it.’ So I made a couple of inquiries, got a hold of the script, found out that, ya know, it’s primarily dealing with the past and that timeline I don’t have a place in, but I saw that at the end there was this coda where he made an appearance and I said, ‘Listen, I really wanna be involved,’ so Bryan arranged for it and we had a lovely time.

On whether or not he would return again:

I hope to do another. I hope they find some way to come up with a new story that involves Beast in my timeline.

I love Kelsey's enthusiasm with the project, and I too hope that he is given a chance to return. With how events unfolded in FUTURE PAST, that affords us some interesting pathways to take with the X-Men. We know that X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will focus on the "FIRST CLASS crowd" in the 80s, but I don't see any reason why a separate story couldn't take place in the altered modern day timeline, where Beast, Cyclops, and others reside.

You can watch Kelsey Grammer wipe the floor with his acting in TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION on June 27, 2014.

Not only did I jump with joy at the return of GrammerBeast, but I would happily watch him in another X-Men movie.

Hell I'd even watch a Beast spin-off with him. I've been mentioning to people recently how Nicholos Hoult's Beast isn't even close enough of an aristocrat to become GrammerBeast, I'd love to see what happens to him in order to make him that, and I'm worried that they keep leaving that out of the films.

I'd love to see him give it another shot, along with Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler again. The dynamic of those two characters with Wolverine would be great. We'll probably just get stuck with shitty Storm again though.

This is awsome!

I always got the impression, based on interviews that he had done, that he was kind of dismissive of the whole thing, comic books in general and didn't really enjoy the part. It always made me sad because he was so perfectly cast in the role. This is great news, and we definitely need to see more of him.

One of the best castings of the X-Men franchise. Was easily one the best part about Last Stand and because of that, I would love to see him reprise the role again in a much, bigger vital way.

When it comes to Apocalypse and the original original trilogy cast, I want to see Professor X, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Beast, Storm, Rogue, Magneto, Gambit, and perhaps Mystique.

I know that this film is focusing on the First Class cast, but I would really love to see one more great film with

awesomensess

would LOVE to see him return. Honestly bring McAvoy and Fassbender and I couldn't care less about any of the other First Class cast members/character versions.
