Kevin Dunn and Julie White will return to play Sam Witwicky’s (Shia LaBeouf) parents in Michael Bay’s Transformers 3. So for those wondering if these minor comic relief characters would once again dazzle us with their presence, you can now put your mind at ease. Variety reports that the actors have closed their deals as the film moves through pre-production. Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, and Tyrese Gibson will also return and they’ll be joined by new cast members John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and Ken Jeong. Shooting is set to begin in May.
Transformers 3 is slated to hit theaters on July 1, 2011.
