Kelsey Grammer's Beast rumoured for X-Men: Days of Future Past cameo

We know that Bryan Singer is set to reunite much of the cast of the original X-Men trilogy for the upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, and if Showbiz Spy is to be believed, we might be seeing another familiar face popping up too, with the site claiming that X-Men: The Last Stand star Kelsey Grammer has shot a cameo as the Future Hank McCoy, a.k.a. Beast. Of course, until we hear something official, this should be treated as a rumour.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for release on May 23rd, with franchise veterans Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Lucas Till (Havok), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) joined in the packed ensemble cast by X-Men newcomers Evan Peters (American Horror Story) as Quicksilver, Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) as Warpath, Omar Sy (The Intouchables) as Bishop, Fan Binbing (Iron Man 3) as Blink, Adan Canto (The Following) as Sunspot, Josh Helman (Mad Max: Fury Road) as William Stryker, and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) as Bolivar Trask.

    So he cuts Storm and Rogue, and adds in a second Beast… Ugg this one is going to stink.

      He has denied cutting Storm

      To be honest, a future Beast is more necessary than either. Remember Beast is the ambassador to mutant AND now human affairs. He works with the president. With the rise of the sentinels and all it’s very important to see Beast’s role and reaction to all of it. Is he sticking to his mutant justice morals or siding with humans? I’m glad to hear this.

      Storm wasn’t cut out.

      I agree. It’s one of the few characters that had somewhat of a storyline in X3, and the most important of them as well. It’s interesting to see what he thought of all the Sentinel problem, since I assume such things would happen right under his nose before the trouble got out to the streets.

      • Romelle Bradford

        Exactly. With him in the White House he’s had to known about the program and if not they’ve been hiding a lot. For him in his stature in DC he should be a major player in this. Is that how the X-MEN found out by leaking the info? Did the government kill him for warning them or jail him? IMO regardless of his screen time, Beast should be a major character in DOFP regardless. Even 5 minutes could stand out if he died getting the X-MEN the secret info

    This Storm sucks anyway. I want to see the black chick from 28 Days Later play the mohawk and leather Storm.

      or Angela Basset

    And where is Rebecca Romijn?

    • The Walking Cuban

      I guess having lost her power, she’d be irrelevant. On the other hand, it’d be interesting to see her reaction to sentinels killing her first people. On the other, other hand, everyone else seems to be unRatnered, so maybe she’s a mutant again anyway. Or dead for being a mutant. Id like to thank my assistant, Goro.

      • Seth

        The cure was only temporary. Magneto got his power back.

        • The Walking Cuban

          The way they showed it made it seem like he was special, like through sheer will, he made his power return. But I’ll go with whatever explanation they give, or don’t, in dofp. Cuz I’m confused, son. I’m confused.

    Maybe it’s for the end when the future gets fixed. :)
