TRANSFORMERS 4 to Feature a Josh Duhamel Cameo?

     March 8, 2013


Although director Michael Bay is set to kick-off a whole new trilogy with Transformers 4, it looks like we might have one cross-over character from the original series.  Josh Duhamel, who played military man William Lennox in each of the three previous films, recently spoke with Bay, who was congratulating him on the new addition to his family.  Bay also mentioned the opportunity for Duhamel to play the one bit of connective character tissue that would bridge the old and new films by way of a cameo.  Hit the jump for more.

“They’re going younger…[Michael] said he wants to put me in it someplace. I don’t know if he was just saying that because he had me on the phone and he felt obligated or what, but you know what? I got to do three of those. It changed my career, it changed my life getting to be a part of something that big, so I’m grateful for even doing the first three of them.”

Bay recently said that the fourth film would take place four years after the events of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which is why we’re meeting an entirely new cast.  That cast includes Mark Wahlberg (Ted) and Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) in a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen).  Personally, I’d be happy seeing Duhamel have a small part in the new film, but I’ve had more than enough of Bay’s version of Transformers already so perhaps I’m not the best judge.

    At the very least his character is the best one to have cross over.

    As a person with over 400 transformers in his closet, and has followed the productions of the transformers movies pretty extensively, I can’t help but feel he is the wrong choice. Tyrese Gibson has been a huge focal promoter of the film and with out a doubt has shown the most enthusiasm for the franchise out of the entire cast for all 3 films. Josh is fine, but he just doesn’t seem to have the same spark that Tyrese does for the films.

    But to be honest I would rather they scrap the trilogy and start a new while keeping the same aesthetics but getting rid of Bay. I’ve seen the films plenty of times and can say with confidence that Bay doesn’t do the Big Bots justice. They are good event movies to see in the theaters, but the story is always butchered and upon repeat viewing shows some major inconsistencies, even by colossal fuck up standards. Bay can make things look good, but he is horrid when it comes to stories. I want an actual storyline when it comes to Transformers for once, and the new trilogy is only logically going to build towards Unicron, a feat that Bay just isn’t capable to doing properly.
