This far into the Transformer series of films by Michael Bay you know exactly what you’re going to get, so you’re either going to see Transformers: Age of Extinction and enjoy it, see it and hate watch it, or just ignore its passing and seeing something more engaging to your personal taste at the multiplex. If I could describe Age of Extinction in two words, they would be “too much,” too much exposition, too much action, too much plot, too much Bay-hem… And although it’s not as noticeable, too much silliness mixed in with all the hardcore action. In other words, it’s everything you like, or hate, already about Transformers films, just more of it. (more…)
The latest Internet rumor floating around Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past has Kelsey Grammer making a cameo appearance as future Beast. Considering How many other reports there are about other well-known character’s being cut during the editing process, could Grammer make it to the big screen even if the cameo was shot? (more…)
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.
I do not believe in Michael Bay’s Transformers. Like many of you, I consider the franchise a bastardization of our beloved robots in disguise. The Bayformers series has offered nothing but an unnecessary amount violence, racism and sex. I do not care for any more films. But… they’re happening anyway. Transformers 4 is rolling out…
As I said, I did not care for the first three Transformers movies. However, I do like Kelsey Grammer, so I’m torn. Oh, wait. Sorry, I forgot to mention… Sideshow Bob has just been cast as the lead (human) villain. According to Deadline, Grammer will play Harold Attinger, an evil counter intelligence agent. He’ll join fellow cast members Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci as well as a few unknowns.
Honestly, who doesn’t like Kelsey Grammer? This is Frasier we’re talking about! And, he was the best part of all of X3, but that’s not saying much.
Even with the awesomeness of this casting followed by the surprise of Pain and Gain (Bay finally did something right!) I cannot get excited for another Transformers movie. I just can’t.
The film is schedueld for release June 27, 2014 [Deadline]
