Kelsey Grammer says he would savor the opportunity to play everyone's favorite blue-furred mutant genius. Grammer spoke with IGN about his role as Beast in the X-Men films and said he'd be down for another turn as Dr. McCoy.
"I would love to do another X-Men," Grammer said. "I loved playing Beast! I call him the blue guy and it was just a joy for me to be involved in that franchise and so when I heard they were making another one...It was Hugh (Jackman) that I was talking to and he said, 'You're going to be in the next one aren't ya, mate!?!' (Australian accent included). I said I didn't even know about it. So I called Bryan and said, 'Look I understand that you're in a different timeline now and it's the younger Beast, but there's that little coda at the end. So I volunteered my services for it, because I really like being a part of that franchise."
When asked about Singer's return to the franchise, he said, "He's kind of got the signature on that piece...I thought Brett did a good job with the third one, but I guess that got sort of wrapped-up in political nonsense between studios. I never cared about that stuff. I think it's Bryan's baby, so I was happy to see him return to it."
