Grammer dreams of more X-Men films

Kelsey Grammer has said he wants to play Beast in more X-Men films.

The Frasier star, who portrayed the comic book character in X-Men: The Last Stand, reprised the role for a brief cameo in the latest instalment, Days Of Future Past. Nicholas Hoult plays the younger version of Beast in the newer films.

"I hope to do another. I hope they find some way to come up with a new story that involves Beast in my timeline," he told Collider.

Kelsey - who next stars in Transformers: Age Of Extinction - admitted it was him who made his appearance happen, after he got in touch with director Bryan Singer.

"Actually I called Bryan. I bumped into Hugh Jackman and he said, 'Oh you're gonna be in another X-Men, mate!' and I said, 'No I'm not, I don't know anything about it'," he explained.

"So I made a couple of inquiries, got a hold of the script, found out that it's primarily dealing with the past and that timeline I don't have a place in, but I saw that at the end there was this coda where he made an appearance.

"I said, 'Listen, I really want to be involved,' so Bryan arranged for it and I had a lovely time," the 59-year-old added.
