From Psychiatrist to Mayor to Bad Guy – Kesley Grammar Cast as Human Antagonist In Transformers 4

Eminently likable – if not a bit fussy – Kesley Grammer strayed far from his real life persona in Frasier, much like he did in Cheers. His latest role, the Grammy award winning turn of Major Tom Kane in Boss, has lead to a major Hollywood role for the outspoken, honey-throated actor.

“We’re going to start off smaller. There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom,” explains director Michael Bay. “The history of the first three movies is still there, we start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast.” Transformers 4 takes place four years after the events that shocked the world in Dark of the Moon, but it’s not a reboot as it continues from where the trilogy left off. With Casting for the fourth installment now underway, Grammer is the fifth actor cast in the last few months. The first official word on casting came when Bay revealed that he would be reuniting with star Mark Wahlberg.

The previous movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, made over $1 billion at the global box office in 2011, so Bay will have a lot to live up to. Some of the new film - opening in theaters on June 27, 2014 - will be shot using the new IMAX 3D cameras, and we can’t wait.
