How do I know this? Well I might just be connected to Paramount or Dreamworks somehow(like I'd give my source). Thought it'd be fun to start it here since someone told me this is the big transformers site. The first guy was terrible so why not make sense and bring in Marty if the character itself is somewhat based on his character. And contractual obligations mean nothing, you really think it's hard to get rid of a guy who had 2 lines, off camera? Terrence Howard was under contract and was replaced for Iron Man 2 and he was a main actor.
