    Steve Tom's website says he'll be a principal actor in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
    ::: Steve Tom - Actor, Presenter, Voice-over Talent and Ear Prompter Expert :::

    Although it's often full of inaccuracies, IMDB lists his role as McClaren Robotics CEO.
    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)

    Meanwhile, Theiapolis Cinema is reporting that his role is Massive Dynamics CEO.

    With either of those companies names, I'm sure speculation regarding the role of this company could go in several directions.

    New York-based Newsday.com is also reporting that actress Katie Lowes was cast as Sam Witwicky's college resident assistant (RA).

    Probably most notable for her one-shot appearance on The Sopranos.

    I had a feeling that they would be at least touching on this issue for this movie.

    I don't understand what it the connection to Massive Dynamics?
    It's supposed to be a fictional multi-billion dollar high-tech company that exists in the Fringe universe.
    The only connection I see to TF2 is that the script for the Fox television pilot was written by JJ Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

    Massive Dynamics is anything like McClaren Robotics, we could have conspiracy. What if, and ths is just speculation, somebody got a hold of part of the remains of one of the robots. Maybe Jazz? (they wouldn't dump him in the ocean, they'd give him a proper funeral)

    Yeah, I doubt it will be called Massive Dynamics, although that would be an awesome side-tie-in to Fringe. It was probably Massive Dynamics in an early draft but they ended up using that for fringe instead.

    So, we're already at the stage where humans start to build their own Transformers?

    It's a show called "Fringe" that starts in September of FOX that's written and produced by Orci and Kurtzman and JJ Abrams.

    Just my 2 cents, but I can't help thinking that these robotics companies maybe have something to do with (the construction) of some kind of defense fortress for the Autobots a la Autobot City... Orci has recently said that the Transformers in part 2 are no longer 'hoboes', which leads me to think they have some kind of base or something. We will find out.
