Pretty much explains EVERYTHING about him, if you think about it! To wit... Bruce Brazos and Bumblebee are BOTH assigned the task of essentially watching over Sam...Bumblebee by Optimus, and Bruce by his Board via Dylan's recommendation. Bruce Brazos even begins to function as a "guardian" for Sam, echoing Bumblebee's role, by pledging to protect him from the fallout after Wang's death. Bruce Brazos is a martial artist, just like Bay's Bumblebee. Bruce Brazos is OBSESSED with yellow, the color of Bumblebee. In fact... While he's interviewing Sam on the "Yellow Floor" and flips out about the red cup, you can see he's even wearing a yellow tie and yellow socks. Nice touch. Even better, when he sticks his foot in Carly's door and demands to see a TF, just once...yup, nice tight close-up on his YELLOW shoe. Ha. And WHICH TF is the ONE TF Bruce Brazos gets to meet? That's right...BUMBLEBEE. My favorite element in ALL this, though, is that series of "karate" pictures he keeps by his desk. At first I was misled away from their REAL point by their function in the scene, which seems to basically be to say to Sam, "Oh, you wanna be a corporate killer viking warrior? TOO BAD. That position is FILLED." But then there's the spray tan in the pictures. ZOMFG, Bruce Brazos even has YELLOW SKIN, ffs!!! O_O Seriously! It's all so OBVIOUS in hindsight! Hard to believe no one's even mentioned it before this, right? Haha, THAT'S what I'm here for, lol. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool and definitely justifies all the quirky oddball stuff about him that seems so strange and out of place otherwise. Really gives me a WHOLE new appreciation for his character. John Malkovitch can be such a genius-level actor that I wonder if some of that stuff didn't come from his own efforts to breathe life into the role by "workshopping" it. It's really pretty clever, actually. Regardless, it's freakin' awesome and absolutely hilarious. LOVE IT.
