Sideshow Hank!

Newsarama has a bunch of X-Men casting news.

While the bulk of the cast for the third X-Men movie is already in place, Variety today announced a new addition to both the cast and the characters that will appear in the film: Kelsey (Frasier) Grammer as Hank McCoy, aka Beast.

Blue fur and all.

While spinning it to the trade and non-comics readers Marvel’s Avi Arad confirmed what many X-Men fans have known for years: “Kelsey was born to play the role," Arad said. “This is a big role in the new movie, and when we met with him, you can see that Kelsey has that you'd-better-have-a-dictionary-handy intelligence.”

The trade confirmed that X3’s Beast will be the 355-pound, blue furred version.

Also, Vinnie (Snatch) Jones is slated to play Juggernaut in the film, named by the trade as the anchor of Magneto’s “villainous band.” Maggie (Lost) Grace is in negotiations to play Kitty Pryde, while the studio is still searching for an actor to play Angel, described by the trade as “a handsome winged mutant who is ashamed of his feathery appendages.”

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, X-Men 3 is slated to open Memorial Day weekend, 2006
