After playing a hard-ass politician in Starz’s “Boss,” Kelsey Grammer is looking to keep that edge as he has signed on to play a villain in the Paramount’s Transformers starring Mark Wahlberg.

Pic also stars Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz. Deadline Hollywood broke the news.

Bay, who’s helmed all three “Transformers” pics, is directing the next installment with Ehren Krueger penning the script.
