Everyone’s favorite radio shrink is joining the cast of director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3. Well, Kelsey Grammer is, not Frasier Crane, but now that I think about it, seeing the Crane brothers in an Expendables movie would be a hoot. For those of you thinking that Grammer can’t play the tough guy, go check out Starz’s series Boss. Grammer can bring the malevolent heat with the best of them.
Grammer’s handlers are in the final stages to close the deal that would have Grammer play Bonaparte, an ex-mercenary who helps the Expendables in their mission.That was the role Stallone originally wanted Nicolas Cage to play. That means Cage is out and Grammer is in.
That’s not the only hard-hitting role we’ll see Grammer in. He’s playing the human villain in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction.
The Expendables 3 cast now includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Wesley Snipes.
The Expendables 3 hits theater screens on August 15th, 2014.
