Kelsey Grammer will make a cameo as an adult Beast in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Grammer originally played the role of Dr. Hank McCoy in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand.
“Producers had the brilliant idea to bring back Kelsey for Days of Future Past,” an insider told Showbiz Spy. “It wasn’t hard to get him to sign on for a guest appearance. He jumped at the opportunity the second it was brought to his attention.”
Grammer is said to appear as an adult Beast towards the end of the film. His character’s younger self is played by Nicholas Hoult, reprising his role from X-Men: First Class.
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class in an epic battle that must change the past - to save our future.
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters May 23, 2014.
