RUMOR: Kelsey Grammer reprising his Beast role in X-Men: Days of Future Past?

March 20th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

ShowbizSpy is reporting that a source close to the production on director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past revealed that Grammer, who played the role in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, was totally up for a return cameo as beast:

“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. Kelsey’s special cameo was secretly shot during post-production on the Fox (studio) lot under the impression that Kelsey would be on set to film a pilot for a different project.”

Of course this is only a rumor, but what do you think?

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 beloved 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.

Bryan Singer has managed to gather an impressive cast which includes James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to be released in theaters on May 22nd, 2014 in the UK and May 23rd in the US
