    Don't know if it's old news, but this was posted over at IGN this morning.

    I know it was reported earlier that he was to return, but looks like his character will be slightly different

    "He sent it to me and I looked at the name of the character… The name of the character is General Morshower. He named the character my name." In his follow up conversation with Bay, Morshower recalled, "[Bay] goes, 'You don't mind, do you? We think your name is really different, really cool.' I went, 'What do I care? It's mine!' So I went in and played General Morshower."

    The actor then revealed, "I just saw about thirty minutes of the film last week. It's tremendous! You will love it. I think it's even better than the first. So June 24th!"

    In the Junior novelization, he's a Naval Admiral. Cool to hear, he's a good actor!

    The guy in the Control Tower in the opening of TF1.
    "Have your crew step out, or we will kill you" was his most infamous line.

    Fact is, he was supposed to be killed off in TF1, right?

    Thats pretty stupid. they should have got another actor. If Sam dies can he come back as makayla's long lost twin brother, cause I like his last name.

    Your saying that like he was a huge character in the last movie. I doubt the general public will remember the guy from the last movie's opening.

    OK Sam was a bad example. But I do think people will remember the guy. Will it bring down the ratings and reviews probably not. Will it change my love for the movie. NOPE. But still its the simple fact the guy had a role in the first movie. And he died. So lets respawn him in the second one. Its just stupid IMO.

    Heh, that reminds me of how that one guy appears in all the Spiderman movies. I forget his name, but he was the wrestling announcer in the first, the theater usher in the second and the french restaurant waiter in the third.

    I wouldn't be surprised if said actor did return for Revenge of the Fallen. Michael Bay has a tendacy to reuse actors that have been in his previous films; Of course, none of these movies really had any continuity with each other (if you don't count Bad Boys/Bad Boys II) where a actor's character died and he returned playing a different character.

    To the hardcore fans like us, we'll know Glenn Morshower is back playing a different character.

    The casual fans will see Glenn Morshower and think, "Hmm. The guy from the first movie lived. Neat." I don't think "Colonel Sharp"s name was ever mentioned in TF1, and it's not like you saw Blackout tear the colonel's head off. Moreover, I rather doubt Glenn's acting will differ much between Colonel Sharp and General Morshower. I really think most of the fans will just think he's the same character. It's not like Glenn Morshower returns to re-cast the guy who plays Sam's dad or anything. He's trading one military commander role for another military commander role.

    The even-less-than-casual fans won't even notice the same actor is back.
