The Expendables 3 Adds Kelsey Grammer, Because Why Not?

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - AUGUST 02:  (L-R) Actors Kelsey Grammer, Sanaa Lathan and Jonathan Groff speak at the 'Boss' discussion panel during the Starz portion of the 2012 Summer Television Critics Association tour at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on August 2, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

We'd remind you of that old Sesame Street chestnut, "One of These Things (Is Not Like the Other)," but Kelsey Grammer recently headed to Transformers: Age of Extinction as the big bad guy, so who knows anything. One thing that's especially incomprehensible, though, is the fact that Grammer's taking the role Nicolas Cage was rumored for, playing "Bonaparte, an ex-mercenary who helps the Expendables in their mission." Other new additions to the franchise include Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipes.
