1. Kelsey Grammer – The Expendables 3 (2014)
You most likely know him as Dr. Frasier Crane, the pompous, arrogant snob that entertained us on both Cheers and successful spin-off Frasier, but Grammer has also had a number of high-profile movie roles outside of his most recognizable character.
While his turn as Hank McCoy/Beast was actually one of the better-received aspects of the X-Men franchise in the ’00s, he also managed to wander into a role in completely the wrong genre in 2014 when he appeared in The Expendables 3.
For the unaware, The Expendables franchise was conceived as a means of putting all of the world’s most well-known action stars into one property, and the results were predictably mediocre. Grammer’s casting, however, was a singularly strange and misguided choice.
Playing the role of Bonaparte, a retired mercenary, we’re asked to suspend our disbelief as one of the world’s most well-spoken actors known for playing a pompous psychologist pretends to be a man who spent his life racking up confirmed kills in deadly skirmishes?
It’s an unequivocal no from us. Here at Corner of Film, we can only imagine Grammer took the role because he didn’t know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs. Quite stylish.
