Kelsey Grammer Gets Blue to Become the "X-Men 3" Beast

by | May 18, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports some rather colorful comic book movie news when they announce that TV’s Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) will be playing the fan-favorite Beast in Matthew Vaughn‘s "X-Men 3." Those who doubt the connection between TV’s longtime psychiatrist and a 400-pound hulking blue brute need only remember that Beast (a.k.a. Dr. Hank McCoy) is the resident super-genius within the X-Men lair. (Plus he’ll be wearing a costume and sprinkled with CGI, most likely.)

Maggie Grace (of TV’s "Lost") is also in negotiations to play X-babe Kitty Pryde, and most everyone already knows that Vinnie Jones ("Snatch") has been signed to play the villainous Juggernaut Jones. Looks like "X-Men 3" is shaping up to be a very interesting affair!
