X-Men: 7 Best & 7 Worst Casting Decisions In The Franchise So Far

7. Kelsey Grammer - Beast (X-Men: The Last Stand)

Though some of the special effects in the climactic battle of The Last Stand were questionable at best (apparently suggesting that Beast could somehow fly at one stage), there's not a lot wrong with The Last Stand's iteration of the second most famous blue character in the X-Men movie universe. The script might not be quite there, and he's not on screen long enough - especially when you consider the Thanks to the combination of his imposing physique and his notorious loquaciousness, Kelsey Grammer was always the most likely to play Beast as an older, wiser head, and his characterisation of the tamed beast working with the government fit his on screen persona well, without compromising the physical threat of the character. Though the majority of The Last Stand was jettisoned in Bryan Singer's franchise fixer, it felt like a fitting nod to how well Grammer was suited to the role that he was invited back (though ultimately he could only commit to a cameo thanks to Transformers 4).
