    Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Dollhouse) has joined the cast of Transformers 3 according to thewrap. While the studio is keeping the story and his character under wraps, I’m hoping Michael Bay is going to use him in a fun role and not something dark and serious. Because if you’ve seen his work on Firefly, you know that’s the type of role he’s great in.

    He has appeared on the bigscreen in "3:10 to Yuma," "Knocked Up" and "Dodgeball," and most recently toplined "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil," which won the Audience Award at this year's SXSW Film Festival. Tudyk will next star opposite Michael Sheen and Maria Bello in Shawn Ku's school shooting drama "Beautiful Boy."

    Director Michael Bay plans to shoot "Transformers 3" at a variety of international locations including Africa, Moscow, China and of course, the U.S. The last two films in the blockbuster franchise have grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide. "Transformers 3" hits theaters July 1, 2011.

    Tudyk is repped by The Gersh Agency and Thruline Entertainment.

    I don't care what his role is, he can only make the movie better. Every performance I've ever seen him give has been phenomenal.

    "Ha, Steve the pirate!"

    But on a serious note, he does have a lot of great characters.

    I've never heard of this guy before,and hope he doesn't stink up the movie coming off as if he has zero charisma and/or acting ability.

    *ahem* Firefly and Serenity? No love?

    TF3 has my interest now. Can they remake the first two with this new batch of folks, maybe?

    We can assure you, this won't happen. Also, watch Firefly, newkid.

    Tudyk is the man. This is the first casting I've been excited to hear!

    Oh this guy is great. He always shines in his performances. I hope he's given something good to do in this movie, as not to waste his talents.
