"Remember when Nicolas Cage was supposed to join the ensemble of action stars of Millennium Films’ The Expendables 3? Well, guess what, that role is going to Kelsey Grammer. Grammer is near a deal to play the role of Bonaparte, an ex-mercenary who helps the Expendables in their mission. While Grammer was long identified for playing the mild-mannered shrink-turned-radio host Dr. Frasier Crane, he has transformed into a Hollywood tough guy. Most of that came from him playing a ferocious powerbroker in the recently canceled Starz series Boss. Michael Bay was a fan of that show, which led to Grammer being cast as the villain in Transformers: Age Of Extinction."
I have to say that I'm disappointed to hear that he's not playing a villain though, he'd be good in some sort of evil genius role and the Expendables team is turning into a small army.
However this new picture of a tank on the set of EX3 turned up so maybe the forces of Conrad Stonebanks are tougher than the average henchmen. Lets hope that this tank sees more action than the one in Expendables 2 which was immediately blown up by Chuck Norris!
Also here's another Machete Kills trailer out that shows off a bit more of Mel Gibson as the villain:
