Interview with Kelsey Grammer on Transformers 4

kelsey-boss_20110730165018

Kelsey Grammer sat down with Empire and had a couple things to say about Transformers 4. Check the blurbs below for some minor insight to his character Harold Attinger.

[INDENT]”Malevolent” is the word Grammer uses to describe his big bad, Harold Attinger.

“He’s a no-nonsense guy,” he told Empire. “He’s lived his life in the shadows for 30 years in the service of his country, and he likes to be unremarkable yet very efficient.”

What of his first collaboration with the ringmaster?

“I don’t know if Michael has seen Frasier,” laughed Grammer. “He’s been very respectful and funny. He’s a terrific guy and quite a filmmaker. He just said to me the other day, ‘You’re Kelsey Grammer – you can do whatever you want to do.’ So I guess he at least has some acquaintance with my work.”

So what would Frasier Crane make of all the Bayhem?

“Well, you know what? I think he might find it offensive in some ways, but there was always a bit of Frasier that wasn’t completely a snob. He always liked blowing up things, too, if he could! When he would discover his inner child, he would revel in it, and I think Transformers is one of those things.”[/INDENT]

    Now If we could only get the guy who played his Dad in Fraiser to be his Limo Driver

    I love Kelsey Grammer. Not going to lie, he's the main reason I'm seeing TF4. Seriously, he'll probably make the movie for me. My wife and I miss Frazier.

    Fucking love Kelsey Grammer. He's part of the reason why I'm actually kind of excited for TF4.

    Agreed. Anyone else hoping the movie ends with a Silas/Breakdown-type event between him and the Megatron head prop just so he can be the voice of Galvatron for TF5?

    Kelsey Grammer rules. If you ever want to see exactly how bad ass and borderline evil he can be, watch his show Boss. A damn fantastic actor.
