Movie Ruminations

Dr. Frasier Crane taking over for Ghost Rider?

kelsey-grammer-boss-starzSo, in a strange bit of casting switching, it seems that Kelsey Grammer will be taking the part Nicolas Cage was offered in The Expendables 3.  Yes, Dr. Frasier Crane will be playing a mercenary alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, and Harrison Ford.  Wow, that’s a mouthful.  Let’s not forget, they are going up against Mel Gibson!

So, Kelsey Grammer instead of Nicolas Cage?  I have to admit that I’m disappointed that Nic isn’t going to be in the film, but this replacement casting is simply brilliant.  While I’ve never seen Grammer in a badass action role, he certainly looks the part especially as he’s aged from his Frasier days.  (Let’s all forget X-Men: The Last Stand, shall we?)  Grammer will also be starring in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction.

The Expendables 3 opens next August (2014).
