Kelsey Grammer is to play the villain in Transformers 4.

The Frasier star is the latest cast member to join director Michael Bay's reboot about the gigantic shape-shifting robots, which will also star Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor, Deadline revealed.

Kelsey will play Harold Attinger, a counter intelligence guy and a top baddie.

The Cheers star previously played a big screen villain as The Beast in X-Men: The Last Stand.

Details about the fourth instalment of Transformers are being kept under wraps, but the story will follow a group of "powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists who attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control - all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs".

Transformers 4 is due to begin filming in July scheduled to be shown in cinemas in 2014.
