    Slashfilm are reporting that Howard Stern was approached to play a role for the Transformers Movie, but turned it down on the advice of his agent. He would have been playing Frenzy, had he accepted, providing a soundbite when Frenzy's radio mode was turned on.

    Man I miss Stern. I never realized how banal and pointless the rest of morning radio was. Would have been nice to hear him, but it doesn't sound like it would have been much of a part.

    I would rather have both Rumble and Fenzy in the movie togther with O & A doing the voices. And Jim Norton as Ratbat.

    Good move on Stern's part. Movie Frenzy is such a crappy character. (in terms of design and rendering in the movie)

    At least it wouldn't have been an on-screen role. Good god he's got a face for radio.

    He only has half a billion dollars, model fiancee, most popular radio show on satellite radio, made a number one movie, and written best sellers...I'm sure skipping a cameo will haunt him forever. :p

    Meh, Stern is probably richer than rich at this stage of his career. I doubt his rejection of this movie role will break him.

    /never thought Stern was worth my time anyway.
