We just locked in Frances McDormand and John Malkovich. Both amazing actors I’ve always wanted to work with. We also just got Ken Jeong, he is the super funny actor stuck in the trunk from Hangover and the Doctor from Knocked Up.
(Translation: “He is the super funny actor stuck in the trunk from Hangover” = “The Asian guy stuck in the trunk from the Hangover.”)
Personally, I think Bay is going about his casting all wrong. Adding actors like Malkovich and McDormand to Transformers 3 is like putting Dubs on a Nissan Sentra—a waste of money and resource. Bring on Rachel Nichols, Gemma Atkinson, Olivia Wilde … or find the next Megan Fox. Boys like toys, dammit!
But, I digress.
Bay also revealed one of the new Autobots that will be joining Optimus Prime and the gang.
I also was at a Ferrari charity event this week raising money for a hospital being built by Ferrari in Haiti. I announced that night the newest Autobot to join Transformers: the Ferrari 458 Italia.
How cool will it be if the Ferrari is voiced by James Gandolfini and gets to smack around a Fiat for not having dinner ready? Maybe it could even put a cap in some muli caddy’s tailpipe.
Peep the Ferrari 458 Italia:
