Kelsey Grammer (Frasier) is more than meets the eye as the new – and quite human – antagonist for Michael Bay’s Transformers 4.  Not too much is known about his character except that he’ll be playing counter-intelligence operative Harold Attinger – a flesh-and-blood baddie – and not a voice of any villainous Decepticons.  Grammer will join Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor in a story that centers on “a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists [who] attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control—all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs.”  Transformers 4 opens June 27, 2014.  Hit the jump for more.

kelsey-grammer-transformers-4Deadline reported on Grammer’s addition to Bay’s newest Transformers movie.  Grammer also stars in writer/director John Herzfeld’s drama Reach Me, which is expected to open later this year.  He’ll also be voicing the Tin Man in the 2014 animated release, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, lead by Lea Michele (Glee).

    I didn’t know they script leaked, but did you really have to post it?

      Really? That’s not much of a script leak, ever heard of a synopsis?

    Damn you Michael Bay for casting Stanley Tucci in a movie I’m avoiding like the plague.

    Wouldn’t it be awesome to have another Decepticon comic relief voiced like Sideshow Bob? He could have an orange afro and the only way to stop him would be for the Autobots to lay down a slew of metal rakes for him to step on.

    Cut, print, send to copy.

    Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer, I’m actually starting to look forward to this.

    i don’t get it. why are people so excited about this news?! Kelsey grammar is just gonna phone this character in…he’s gonna be the over the top smarmy as$hole type who thinks his stupidas$ is always right with a bunch of yelling and strategically timed glares at the camera…michael bay at this point can’t direct anything beyond a happy meal paper bag.

    I bet Grammers brother shows up in the fifth part, seeking for revenge. So I’m looking forward to Transformers 5 with David Hyde Pierce…

    Im guessing the supposed change in design of the ‘Bots and the ‘ancient, powerful Transformer menace’ setting ‘Earth in his crosshairs’ are references to Galvatron and Unicron?…
