    Maybe it is just me, and maybe this has been discussed already.....


    The hologram for the Decepticons is Tom Banacheck isn't it....
    Looks just like him.....If you can't remember check the Barricade and SS Holo's..(maybe the Decepticons got hold of S7 files and used him for their Holo's)


    As for Lennox I swear he is also part of Capt Witwicky's crew...After he falls through the ice check the middle guy out that yells down the hole..If that isn't Lennox with a mustache it looks like his twin......

    Must've been for budgeting.......

    All's I am saying is they must've used the same actors for these parts to save on money....Look at the holograms and then Look at Tom Banacheck (specially the Barricade Driver and Starscram pilot those are clear shots)...then watch the part where Capt Witwicky falls through the ice...There is a guy on his crew that yells down the hole that is the same actor that plays Lennox...(Dhumal) I swear it is him with a mustache and a little ice on his face....

    I think they look similar, but not the same.
    Mind you, when Bannachek turned up I thought WTF? It's the hologram!

    Maybe he IS a Pretender...

    No, Lennox was not on the boat with Cappy Witwicky. Two totally different people.

    And Banacheck and the Moustache man are different people. Moustache man was what the Decepticons settled on what an average human looked like and used him. We've seen off set what Moustache man looks like and he's not Banacheck's actor. The moustache isn't even real.

    Though it would be an interesting plot twist if it turned out Banacheck was a Decepticon hologram/holomatter avatar. Though I don't know if it would work out to anything particularily useful all things considering.

    Tom Banachek was played by actor Michael O'Neill who had parts on "The West Wing" and "24". See here for his IMDB resume.

    The Moustache Man was played by Brian Reece, a United States Air Force Major who was originally just supposed to be the off-camera pilot of the MH-53 helicopter used for Blackout. Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg liked his "evil stare" so much that they hired him to play "Moustache Man" in front of the camera. The Albuquerque Tribune has an article about him.

    And now, seriously. I expect threads like this on a Lost board ("ZOMG random extra from season 4 episode 2 is TOTALLY the same guy as that major guest star from season 2 episode 13!"). Never thought I'd see it on a Transformers board too.

    The funny thing with Blackout's hologram was how much he looked like GI Joe helecopter pilot Wild Bill. If you didn't know any better you would have sworn they had worked a GI Joe easter egg into the Transformers movie.

    Just needed Ace on the helmet for Starscream's hologram.

    Yeap, me too. I think they're just way too similar and caused unnecessary confusion.

    Why, because both have moustaches?

    ZOMG Simmons looks so similar to Sam I bet he's his real father!

    Simmons doesn't look anything remotely similar like Sam. Banacheck and moustacheman, do, plus the fact that both of them don't get a lot of screentime. I'm sure there are a lot more people who were confused when Banacheck first appears.

    I wasn't. Neither were my friends who I took to see it.


    I'm afraid I don't see the similarities between Banacheck and the Decepticons holograms past the moustache.

    Two different guys, they look alike, but that's it.

    That's my experience. Only a minor grip which won't even bug the sequel or anything anyway.
