    "Yet more TRANSFORMERS cast members confirmed!!!
    Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with another bit of TRANSFORMERS casting confirmations. IGN really got a great line on this bit of news, with Jon Voight and Megan Fox confirmed last week and Bernie Mac and Josh Duhamel being officially announced today. Way to go, Stax!
    So, that only leaves... who? Michael Clarke Duncan, John Turturro and Tyrese were also mentioned by IGN, but haven't been confirmed yet.
    I really like Bernie Mac, but I never in my life would have thought Bernie Mac would appear as a main character in a TRANSFORMERS movie. Don't watch VEGAS, so I have no opinion of Josh Duhamel. We all know who the real stars of this movie are anyway. I like that we're at least getting interesting characters to hold us over between the giant robot fights... What do you folks think?"

    Cool, still good to see it all coming together. I wonder if we will get any really "super-mega-stars" cast as human roles.

    I hope not just because I'd rather see $20 million going towards special effects and not one single persons bank account.

    Bernie Mac and Josh Duhamel are set to star in Michael Bay's "Transformers: The Movie" for DreamWorks and Paramount. Live-action production starts lensing this month, with release scheduled for July 4, 2007.

    Budgeted well north of $100 million, "Transformers" is based on the comicbook, cartoon and Hasbro toy line popular in the 1980s. Story centers on the central saga of the Autobots vs. the Decepticons.

    Mac will play a salesman who sells Shia LaBeouf's character his first Transformer. Jon Voight, Megan Fox, John Turturro, John Robinson and Travis Van Winkle round out the cast.

    Tom DeSanto, Don Murphy and Par-based Lorenzo di Bonaventura are producing the film. Steven Spielberg and Hasbro's Brian Goldner exec producer. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci penned the screenplay.

    Mac is currently lensing Lionsgate's "P.D.R." alongside Terrence Howard. "Transformers" is Duhamel's first film since the DreamWorks romantic comedy "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton."

    Bernie Mac's looking like the biggest "name" actor in the movie thus far, and his role sounds like a cameo, so it shouldn't be too expensive. I hope it's a fun exchange, like the cameos in Muppet movies.

    To me, and people younger than me and more familiar with television than film, yes. Is Voight confirmed?

    hmm. the idea of Bernie Mac being the used car seller sounds quite entertaining for some reason. makes me look forward to the movie more and more.

    That's so cool that the movie is so close to actually filming the live actors.

    Hopefully this means the live cast is almost finished and we can start getting information about the cast members we all really care about: the voice actors.

    Bernie Mac in a camo appearence is awesome. I haven't seen much of 'Vegas' but what I have seen, Josh Duhamel seems like a decent actor. Seems like the cast could turn out pretty good

    Interesting news.
    If Michael Clark Duncan is who I am thinking of... wouldn't it just be uber cool if he played someone in the armed forces who would later go by the nickname "Roadblock"?

    John Turturro is good news if it's indeed true. He's a really great actor. Anyway, yeah, it's cool that the live action cast has seemingly come together. I wonder how much news we'll keep getting as things progress? I'm sure there will have to be lulls at some point. Like already said in the thread, I hope some voice actor news pops up soon.
