Like it's two predecessors, "X-Men: The Last Stand," which opens on May 26, boasts a bevy of classically trained actors like Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, as well as Abercrombie and Fitch-worthy hot shots like that guy who plays Cyclops, that hot chick who plays Jean Grey and Halle Berry.

Kelsey Grammer will make his debut in the series as the hyper-articulate blue-haired Beast. "[He] isn't going to be known as Frasier anymore, he'll be known as Beast," director Brett Ratner told Reuters in an interview on May 21. "He has such power, he needed that deep Shakespearean voice to cut through a thick costume."
