Shortly before Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released, I got the chance to speak with Tyrese Gibson on the phone. Since I hadn’t yet seen the film, I couldn’t ask specific questions about the plot or his character. However, since I was able to visit the editing room earlier this year, where I also saw about 15 minutes of the film before its release, I knew enough about the story and the insane Chicago action sequence that we had plenty to discuss. In addition, Gibson talked about Fast Five and Fast Six, filming Transformers in 3D, if he has the desire to direct, how he ended up writing a bestselling book (How to Get Out of Your Own Way), his new album Open Invitation, Twitter, and a lot more.
