Kelsey Grammer is in talks to appear in The Expendables 3.
Deadline reports that the Frasier actor is in negotiations to play Bonaparte, an ex-mercenary who helps the veteran group in their mission. The role was originally set to be taken by Nicholas Cage, but he has since pulled out, clearing the way for Grammer to take it.
He also recently signed on to play the lead villain in Transformers: Age of Extinction.
The Expendables 3 is due for release on August 15 2014.
