    One of the comedians who would have had a cameo isn't in it anymore, according to Seibertron:

    And according to Astralith, this would have been his self-written scene.

    BEWARE, SPOILERS! Highlight to read.

    I don't really care that he isn't in it anymore, but that scene sounded pretty good. Maybe a different actor/comedian/whatever could replace him?

    So lame comedians can beg directors to let them write thier own scene and stuff it in sideways to the plot for a 'giggle'?

    Didn' think hollywood worked that way. If it does, that is pretty lame...

    Oh yeah. Star Trek IV was going to be a big film about how Eddie Murphy saw the Klingon Bird of Prey land and how he's seeing aliens all over the place (Spock, in particular) until Gene Robbenberry said "Oh HELL no."

    No way, Dane Cook can make any scene funny. Oh well, I'm sure noone will care.

    This movie doesnt seem like it has much room for comedy in it. I mean some Giant Robots are on our planet, kicking each others asses and destroying everything. I can see room for lil comedy, but shouldnt it be more seriouse.

    No. We didn't. I would've loved to see that. You gotta have SOME humor in your life.

    I think Dane Cook is overrated as a comedian personally so I'm not losing any sleep over this news.

    I don't really care who'd be in it, but I'd have loved to see someone kick their car/get kicked across the parking lot by said car. :( 

    Besides, getting kicked in the face by your car would kinda...if not kill you then at least brutally fracture your head. Funny at the moment, but OMG the consequences!

    Yeah, that scene would be awesome, it's basically the same as that ad with the Paper Copier and the Japanese woman. Plus, it would be sweet if they managed to make that car a G1 esque bot (Mini Cooper turning into a Bumblebee-esque robot and then getting destroyed by a stray shot of movie Bumblebee? :p )

    According to Dane himeself while on the radio show Opie and Anthony he would only be in the movie if he could write his own scene. What he wanted to do was battle optimus prime and I believe he wanted to win. Bay said he couldn't do that, but wrote the scene described above and Dane decided against it. Be glad Bay did not allow this jackass to do his dumbass scene.

    Dane is an over rated hack comic. The scene with the guy kicking his car can be done with anyone and should be.

    Oh well you can't win them all Mr. Cook.
    I like Bay's idea better btw.
    Wonder how this will turn out since the one piece of news I heard about more than anything from this film was Dane Cook's cameo. Perhaps his millions of fans will say something.
    It will be interesting to see how this turns out over time.
    Yes, I am a bit disappointed that fellow tf-fan Dane Cook will not be making an appearance in the Transformers film but, if fighting prime and winning against him was his idea for a scene then he deserves to lose the cameo. Better luck next time. After all, Transformers MAY become a triology so he could have a shot at redeeming his ass.

    I like Dane but think he may be getting a bit of a big head.

    Recently I heard some one describe him as “He use to be really funny, not his act is just “Look at me I’m Dane Cook!”

    Personally....if everything starts coming alive like that.....the movie will suck. Because there's being campy...and then there's being pure fed crap.
