    Could Dylan be a former Russian agent?

    Assuming the Soviet Union had its equivalent of Sector 7.

    Sort of a evil counterpart to Simmons who was abandoned by his government. Same circumstances but Dylan became successful with his new identity but still has resentment. (To the Russian government he doesn't exist)

    He sides with the Decepticons as their agent involving Sam.

    nice idea...never thought of that. I'm still hoping on him being some sort of pretender though

    Dylan as an KGB-esque dude would be really interesting to see.

    In fact, the whole Cold War aspect of this movie can be pretty good if well-done.

    Maybe Simmons and Dylan were rivals in their younger years amidst the Cold War, both being top-secret intelligence agents for top-secrets government trying to steal information.

    Although, I think that Dylan [judging by Patrick Dempsey's age] doesn't seem old enough to have lived in the times of the URSS, don't you think?

    Patrick Dempsey is 45 born in 1966. By the time the Soviet Union fell Dylan would be 23 based on Dempsey's real age.

    Yes, but...Dylan being an agent [top secret one, apparently] for the URSS at 23 seems a bit of a stretch.

    I mean, it takes a shitload of time to become a top-secret people on any area, acquire that at 23 is...stretchy.

    On the other hand, having a "young" man as Simmon's nemesis would make their rivalry even more fitting [I can picture Simmons being absurdly pissed off that this "kid" outsmarted him while Dylan is not giving a damn about Simmon's opinion, Simmons talking about Dylan like Sherlock Holmes talks of Moriarty while Dylan doesn't even know who the hell is Simmons, etcetera].

    I like this theory, Mr.Redwolf, I like this theory a lot [I mean...Simmons is freaking awesome, giving him a nemesis would allow both a good storyline and funny dialogue from Mr.Turturro]

    If the Soviet Union had an equivalent to Sector Seven then it's possible that it didn't fold under after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Something that secret might not even been known by the new government given all the chaos of forming a new government.

    So yea I'd say it's possible.

    Nah Russia does use young people as spies as evidenced by Anna Chapman.

    Though it can be said Anna Chapman wasn't a top spy.

    He's an ACTOR. He could be a bit older.

    I still think Dylan is a Pretender, a human would never help a Decepticon, since they are trying to destroy Earth, and if they did that Dylan would have no place to live
