Transformers 4: Age of Extinction - Kelsey Grammer Talks About His Character Harold Attinger
By BaCon on Friday, September 06, 2013
Kelsey Grammer pulls the sheets off his role as Harold Attinger in the new Transformers 4: Age of Extinction that is in production currently shooting in Chicago, Illinois. Most know him as "Frasier" from this stint on Cheers and his own self-titled show. The interview does its best to relate to Frasier Crane, but Grammer lets us know there's nothing nice about his character who a "Malevolent" person that lurks in the shadows. Read on for his comments on Attinger and working with Michael Bay.
"Malevolent" is the word Grammer uses to describe his big bad, Harold Attinger. "He’s a no-nonsense guy," he told Empire. "He’s lived his life in the shadows for 30 years in the service of his country, and he likes to be unremarkable yet very efficient."
So what would Frasier Crane make of all the Bayhem? "Well, you know what? I think he might find it offensive in some ways, but there was always a bit of Frasier that wasn’t completely a snob. He always liked blowing up things, too, if he could! When he would discover his inner child, he would revel in it, and I think Transformers is one of those things."
