Kelsey Grammer as The Beast in X-Men 3

by on May.18, 2005, under Movies

Avi Arad, Marvel Entertainment chief, announced that Kelsey Grammer will join the cast of X-Men 3 as Dr. Hank McCoy – a.k.a. The Beast. They were looking for an intelligent-sounding voice, and specifically they wanted to “avoid a British actor” – not as a diss against the Brits I think, but more to avoid a sterotyped voice I guess. Grammer’s voice does seem perfect to me though. Also announced is that Vinny Jones (Snatch) is confirmed as the Juggernaut, and casting for two new mutants, Angel and Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat will be announced soon.
