Five-time Emmy-winning television and film star and Tony-nominated Broadway actor KELSEY GRAMMER (Frasier, Cheers, X-Men, Finding Neverland) is set to appear at the 4th Annual Louisiana International Film Festival in Baton Rouge. The critically-acclaimed and beloved actor will be on hand to help present his latest film BREAKING THE BANK.

A comedic farce set in the world of high finance from director Vadim Jean, BREAKING THE BANK stars Grammer as the hapless chairman of Tuftons, a family-run English bank. With powerful and morally bankrupt U.S. and Japanese investment banks circling Tuftons, it is up to Grammer’s bumbling Sir Charles Bunbury (with the acclaimed actor sporting a convincing British accent) to fend off this ruthless takeover and save his 200-year-old bank. The film co-stars John Michael Higgins (The Breakup, Best in Show) and Tamsin Greig (Shaun of the Dead).

BREAKING THE BANK will screen at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 15 at Cinemark Perkins Rowe. Individual film tickets and festival passes are for sale online at
