    Leo? he wasn't hardcore at all, he just panicked(like Leo) and prayed for his life(which is really a reminder of leo). anyone else get this vibe?

    No, but Hardcore Eddie's line about him having a heart attack kinda reminds me of Glenn from the 07 Movie.

    Leo Spitz... Sam's college friend from ROTF. That's who the OP meant.

    Thank you Trans+Crazy , I am not so familiar with the human names yet. But totally Hard Core played that role, I enjoyed Hard Core Eddie way more than Leo though. I thought 2 was a little rough at points.

    a lil bit disappoint about him not shooting one of the rocket at SP during the fight, they gave it to the other guy instead.

    I think Eddie would have been a better character if he was less like the Hacker from the first Movie and more like Cole-Train from Gears of Wars *Same Actor after all*. a huge wasted opportunity really, and just gives people more mudslinging ammo to throw at Michael Bay about how he deals with Black American Characters in his Movies which could have easily have been avoided.

    And as the podcast points out - why is a barely out of college kid giving a pep talk to a Special Forces soldier about using a rocket launcher. - bit weird I feel.

    To be honest I was expecting Cole Train being ultra badass and charging into the decepticon head on, climbing them with Q's hooks and head shoting them with bazookas to the face. And instead we got another comic relief. But at least his comic relief was funny!

    Leo got old, got fat, and got black.

    And he still sucked. Some people are beyond saving. :D

    And people who think that about bay will never look at how Epps was portrayed in DOTM. I think Tyrese played the character very well as humble retired military dude who steps up when needed again to help Sam.

    Eps was the best non-robot in the entire film. Tyrese was great, I thought. A warm, very human character who was eminently like-able and believable. Unique in the movie. :D

    Considering he's supposedly a retired NEST soldier, does anyone find it somewhat funny that he's still scared sh*tless over getting shot at by alien robots?

    He reminded me of Glenn from TF1, actually.

    Exactly, but only a tad more ballsy.

    No, because he never seen Shockwave yet, and if you were to see Shockwave, you'd be scared shitless too! And, don't forget, when going into Chicago, they thought that the Autobots were dead. It's different when you think Optimus is behind you to have your back.

    He may not have been totally capable, but he was pretty funny. I found myself laughing moreso at him than Mr Wang.

    Besides, wasn't it Eddie who was working in tandem with Epps when they attempt to distract the Decepticon that jumped into the building?

    He kind of reminds me a little of Michael Clark Duncan in Armageddon.

    He was more funnier than Wang I thought so too. The whole thing about aliens shooting him, he's dodging churches and buildings, just cracked me and my audience up!
