Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer would love to return as the X-Men character, Beast, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor is best known for his two decade-long portrayal of the psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane, who was introduced during the third season of the NBC sitcom, Cheers, which was followed by his own spin-off show, Frasier. Grammer’s run as the radio psychiatrist ended in 2004, netting him a total of four Primetime Emmys and two Golden Globes, however he is currently set to reprise the job in a revival on Paramount+.

When the X-Men are eventually introduced into the MCU, Grammer is willing to return as Beast. During a recent public appearance, a fan presented a Funko Pop toy of his X-Men character to be signed by Grammer, and the actor revealed that he would “love to do Beast again,” however nobody at Marvel has approached him about it, according to NJ.com. Read Grammer’s full statement beneath:

Id love to do Beast again. Nobodys really talked to me about it. I think maybe theyre gonna attempt to do another one. Im assuming that they would go with, you know, the first is the best.

Evan Peters’ appearance in WandaVision was the first sign that the mutants may be making their way into the MCU, given that the actor portrayed Quicksilver in the X-Men movies, however it turned out he was merely an imposter named Ralph Bohner. Eternals was then eyed as the next opportunity to introduce the X-Men into the MCU, considering the Celestials engineered the X-quality in the comics, which gave rise to mutants. Notwithstanding, those theories never materialized either.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could be when Marvel finally decides to maneuver the trigger on the X-Men’s transition into the MCU, as rumors have suggested that Professor X will make an appearance in that film, along with a couple of other mutants. Whether or not Grammer’s Beast will be one of them remains to be seen, although his chances are surely decreased by the fact that Hoult plays a newer iteration of the character. Nonetheless, it’s also possible that Marvel could decide to recast the job altogether.
