Deadline has reported that Kelsey Grammer (TV’s Frasier, X-Men: The Last Stand) has been cast as the lead human villain in Transformers 4. He will play a character named Harold Attinger who works in counter intelligence and joins a very high profile cast that includes Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci.
Here’s the scoop:
Forget the affable Frasier Crane; Kelsey Grammer is embracing his inner bad guy. After his Golden Globe turn as the ruthless politician in Boss, Grammer has just landed the key villain role in Michael Bay‘s next Transformers film, which also stars Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci. I’m told that Grammer will play Harold Attinger, a counter intelligence guy.
Transformers 4 will be directed by Michael Bay and is scheduled to enter production in July for a 27th June 2014 release.
