Kelsey Grammer (pic) may be joining Sylvester Stallone's brawny team in the upcoming third instalment of 'The Expendables'.
The award-winning actor may be joining a long list of action actors already associated to the film.
American actor Kelsey Grammer is on the brink of joining the cast on the third instalment in Sylvester Stallone’s star-studded action film franchise.
According to Deadline.com, Grammer is in the running for a role initially offered to Nicolas Cage. Best known for his roles on the TV sitcoms Cheers and Frasier, the actor is in talks to play Bonaparte, a former mercenary who lends a hand to the Expendables in their third on-screen mission.
The 58-year-old actor will represent one more prestigious name in a cast that is already brimming with celebrities. Alongside Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes, however, Grammer will stand out somewhat, as he is generally less associated with action films than the other headliners.
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lungren and Arnold Schwarzenegger will return in the roles of the original Expendables team members.
Directed by Patrick Hughes, The Expendables 3 is slated for release in North American theatres on Aug 15 next year.
After accepting a Golden Globe Award in 2012 for his performance in the TV series Boss, Grammer will appear in theatres next year in Transformers: Age of Extinction. — AFP Relaxnews
