Dr. Frasier Crane may be on-call for action, as Deadline reports Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer is close to signing on for The Expendables 3 in the role of ex-soldier of fortune Bonaparte, who helps Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his team on their mission.
Originally, Nicolas Cage was rumored as the top contender for this role, since the Oscar winner carved out a career as an action hero with The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, Gone in 60 Seconds, and the National Treasure and Ghost Rider films, so casting Grammer was a complete surprise.
The Expendables 3 is the third installment of the popular action franchise with Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as these returning stars will be join by Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Mel Gibson.
The Expendables 3 locks and load into theaters on August 15, 2014 (my birthday!).
