No Joke: Kelsey Grammer to replace Nicolas Cage in ‘The Expendables 3'
(CBR) When the official synopsis for The Expendables 3 was released last month, some previously mentioned names were absent from the cast list — most notably, Nicolas Cage, whose involvement was confirmed in June by Lionsgate.
Grammer recently appeared with Expendables mastermind Sylvester Stallone in "Reach Me" and has a new TV series coming out from Lionsgate, both of which might have helped him land the role.
The film finds the team going up against a bad guy played by Mel Gibson, who has it out for his former colleagues. To combat his forces, Stallone’s Barney Ross recruits a new, younger group of Expendables to help defeat the threat.
"The Expendables 3" opens Aug. 15, 2014.
