Grammer To Play Blue Beast In X-Men 3

Fans of Kelsey Grammer are set to find him tough to recognise in his next project - he's playing a furry blue monster in the second X-Men sequel.

In X-MEN 3, the former FRASIER star will play oversized mutant Beast, who has not yet appeared in any of the franchise's installments.

While there has been a shocked reaction to Grammer's casting, producers of the movie insist he's the perfect choice for the part - because Beast is the most intelligent of all the mutants.

SNATCH star Vinnie Jones is also set to undergo a huge image overhaul when he plays villainous JUGGERNAUT in the movie. His character is a 900 pound metal-clad battering ram.

The sci-fi series stars Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Famke Janssen, HUGH JACKMAN and Rebecca Romijn.

The movie, to be directed by Matthew Vaughn, is set to debut in May next year (06).
