A no-nonsense guy...
In an interview with Empire magazine, Kelsey Grammer revealed some details on his character in Transformers: Age of Extinction. He will play the villain of the film, Harold Attinger. He described him as "malevolent".
He said: "He's a no-nonsense guy. He's lived his life in the shadows for 30 years in the service of his country, and he likes to be unremarkable yet very efficient."
He also talked about working with Michael Bay for the first time. He added: "I don't know if Michael has seen Frasier. He's been very respectful and funny. He's a terrific guy and quite a filmmaker. He just said to me the other day, 'You're Kelsey Grammer - you can do whatever you want to do.' So I guess he at least has some acquaintance with my work."
He also revealed what his TV character, Frasier Crane, would think of being in a Michael Bay film. He said: "Well, you know what? I think he might find it offensive in some ways, but there was always a bit of Frasier that wasn't completely a snob. He always liked blowing up things, too, if he could! When he would discover his inner child, he would revel in it, and I think Transformers is one of those things."
The film is set four years after the invasion of Chicago in Dark of the Moon. It also stars Mark Wahlberg (as a struggling inventor and father), Nicola Peltz (as his daughter Tessa), Jack reynor (as a race car driver named Shane), Sophia Myles, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller, Titus Welliver, Bingbing Li, Victoria Summer and Geng Han. It will be released on June 27, 2014.
