As if the film wasn’t star-studded enough, it has been announced that Kelsey Grammer will join the cast of Expendables 3, taking up a slot on the cast that was rumored to belong to Nicolas Cage.
Along with the news of Grammer’s casting, there’s a pretty good description of who he’ll be playing. The character’s name is Bonaparte, and he’s an ex-convict. He joins Stalone’s Barney Ross and his gang of Expendables on their mission.
The Expendables 3 has only recently started filming, and the film’s synopsis states –
In “The Expendables 3,” Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
It’ll be interesting to see how he works with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Wesley Snipes. The Expendables 3 arrives August 15th, 2014.
