Kelsey Grammer has revealed that he'd like to star in more X-Men movies.

The former Frasier star portrayed the character Beast in the latest instalment of the superhero franchise - X-Men: Days of Future Past.

He told Collider: "I hope to do another. I hope they find some way to come up with a new story that involves Beast in my timeline."

The actor also revealed how he bagged the role after chatting to director Bryan Singer.

He explained: "Actually I called Bryan. I bumped into Hugh Jackman and he said, 'Oh you're gonna be in another X-Men, mate!' and I said, 'No I'm not, I don't know anything about it'.

"So I made a couple of inquiries, got a hold of the script, found out that it's primarily dealing with the past and that timeline I don't have a place in, but I saw that at the end there was this coda where he made an appearance.

"I said, 'Listen, I really wanna be involved,' so Bryan arranged for it and I had a lovely time."
