Kelsey Grammer Talks X-MEN: DOFP Cameo; Hopes To Return As 'Beast' For Another Movie
It had been rumoured for a while, but Kelsey Grammer's return as 'Beast' in the final few minutes of Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past was still a very nice surprise. Here, the actor talks about what led to him reprising the role and whether he hopes to play the character again in future.
In the final few moments of X-Men: Days of Future Past, we saw several notable members of the cast from the original trilogy return in a newly created timeline which wiped away many of the franchise's past mistakes. While it was only for a split second, one of those was Kelsey Grammer as Beast, and Collider caught up with the actor at the Transformers: Age of Extinction set to ask how the cameo came about. "Actually I called Bryan. 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 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. I said, ‘Listen, I really wanna be involved,’ so Bryan arranged for it and I had a lovely time." As for whether he believes that this new timeline will be further explored in the near future or if he would like to play Beast again, the actor added: "I hope to do another. I hope they find some way to come up with a new story that involves Beast in my timeline." Be sure to click on the link below to watch the video interview.
