Kelsey Grammer would love to come back as the X Men character, Beast, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor is best known for his two-decade portrayal of psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane, who was featured during the third season of the NBC sitcom. Health, followed by his own spinoff show, Frasier. Grammer’s career as a radio psychiatrist ended in 2004, earning him a total of four Primetime Emmys and two Golden Globes, though he’s now set to reprise the role in a Paramount + revival.
Aside from Frasier, one of Grammer’s best-known roles came in 2006. X-Men: The Final Decision as the brilliant scientist Dr. Hank McCoy, better known as the mutant blue giant, Beast. Grammer reprized the role for an unacredited cameo in 2014 X-Men: Days of Future Past. Since then, he has remained open to returning to the role, even with Nicholas Hoult taking on the character role in recent films. Now, considering Disney’s takeover of 21st Century Fox, which returned the X-Men film rights to Marvel Studios, the mutants are poised to enter the MCU at any moment.
When the X-Men are finally introduced to the MCU, Grammer is keen to return as the 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 do so. “I love doing Beast again, “Although no one at Marvel has approached him about it, according to NJ.com.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity It could be when Marvel finally decides to pull the trigger on the X Menthe transition to the MCU, as rumors have suggested that Professor X will appear in that movie, along with a few other mutants. Whether or not Grammer’s Beast will be one of them remains to be seen, though his chances are surely diminished by the fact that Hoult plays a new version of the character. However, it’s also possible that Marvel decides to recast the role entirely.
