Kelsey Grammer would love to play his mutant superhero alter-ego Beast in the next 'X-Men' movie.

Kelsey Grammer wants to reprise his role as Beast in a future 'X-Men' film.

The 59-year-old actor made a brief cameo as the ape-like mutant superhero at the end of the Marvel franchise's most recent instalment, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', and would jump at the chance to play the part again.

He admitted to Collider.com: "I hope to do another. I hope they find some way to come up with a new story that involves Beast in my timeline."

Grammer, who first appeared as Beast in 'X-Men: The Last Stand', revealed he took the initiative to call director Bryan Singer and asked to make a return because he had such fun filming the 2006 movie.

He said: "Actually I called Bryan. I bumped into Hugh Jackman and he said, 'Oh you're gonna be in another X-Men, mate!' and I said, 'No I'm not, I don't know anything about it.'

"So I made a couple of inquiries, got a hold of the script, found out that it's primarily dealing with the past and that timeline I don't have a place in, but I saw that at the end there was this coda where he made an appearance. I said, 'Listen, I really want to be involved,' so Bryan arranged for it and I had a lovely time."

X-Men: Days of Future Past

  • 3 stars
  • 2014

  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen
  • UK release: 22 May 2014

When the mutants of the future face extinction, they send Wolverine (Jackman) back in time to change destiny. The finale is too effects-heavy and non-fans may question whether it all makes sense, but the principal players are all on top form and the slick direction and smart writing are at times enormously entertaining.
