Maybe he'll be the Ken Jeong of TF4.

As in, get pushed out of a window and go splat.

That would be great. This guy's not even funny.

The only person I know of (besides TJ) in the casting is Wahlberg. Im not sure Bay is 100% in it... (as in fully focused)

He was the dweeb with the camera in Cloverfield.

So I'm told. Sounds like he's a bit part.

Who gives a crap about this guy.

So you're saying they've got a lot of human talent we'll have to waste time on so the robots never get a F$%^ing word in edgewise. Yay. Can't wait to see another movie about transforming product labels that ain't Transformers.

You very much overuse that word, my friend.

Look, the comedy relief! Would be a shock if his character wasn't the butt of every joke.

He's like Seth Rogan lite.

I like this guy. I thought he was pretty funny in "She's Out of Your League". I can easily see him in a Transformer movie. Not sure what all the hate is for.

you just joined the boards, so you missed all the news for the last 3 movies. welcome!

Miller can be a funny guy. He's got kind of a bombastic personality but he was very funny in She's Out of My League. His standup is pretty good too. I've seen him on a few other Comedy Central shows (The Burn, Jeselnik Offensive) and when he's on point, he's great.

TJ Miller is fine. I'm going to guess that his comedian persona, won't be what is brought to the table here (who knows with Bay though). I have no problem with him being cast.
PrimulArchangel
This guy is just a burn out lol
He is the guy that pulled his pants and boxers down on live TV and raped a Christmas tree on G4's Attack of the Show. He seems like one of those guys you knew in school and you run into him years later and see just how much his brain is burnt from smoking too much shit lol
alfred p. sloan
This is some good news. I know TJ is funny.
ThisGuy
Ha, I recognize this dude from Carpoolers. That was a funny show. He wasn't.
figsdad
While there is more human's get thrown into the film it will turn out less and less robots on the big screen .im not happy..
Pillybaul
This is all I think of when hear TJ Miller... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zS3B...e_gdata_player


Despicable I would say...
McSoundwave
This is good news as far as I'm concerned. Dude cracked me up in "She's Out of My League".

It depends on how they use him. If you watch a little movie called "She's Out Of My League" he plays a character who is always on. Just a fast talking smart ass. He's funny, but it is all a matter of whether he fits the film.

And as someone mentioned, he even played it straight in Cloverfield.

But seeing how Bay used Shia in the first 3 films I'm sure he felt the need to have a smart ass character to fill the role.

I suppose there had to be a human comedy sidekick chum in there somewhere. Miles and Glenn in the first BayFormers, Leo in RotF and - I dunno - most of the supporting human cast in DotM. Hopefully his role will be very small and not too overly painful to experience.
madman1366
I'd say if you are over 30 you think he sucks, if you are under 30 he's ok to pretty funny.

Somehow us older folks had a different sense of humor when we were young. A total bullshit claim I might add just used to perpetuate the holier than thou attitude many of the older fans carry around and beat horses to death with any chance they get. I'm 41 and have proudly avoided evolving into a humorless douchebag.
wesitron
I remember him being pretty funny in "She's Out of My League," I just don't want to have more and more human characters added at the expense of robot dialogue. I'd much rather them finally get a solid feel for the characters they've already had on screen for years than to worry about new humans who probably aren't all that different from the previous ones involved. I guess hoping for that was a shot in the dark, but as fans, hope is sometimes all we can have.

If you guys do a little bit of research you'd know TJ Miller is one of the funniest stand ups in recent years, and he's one of the funniest people I've ever seen and had the privilege of meeting. He's starring in a new HBO Mike Judge comedy called Silicon Valley, that just got picked up to series as well as in a new feature produced by the Hangover producer. He's done animation voicework and he's really about to explode as a hillarous household name. This is good news for the movie. He's better than the movie will ever be.
Composite Ghost
He's not as funny as the guys I play Magic the Gathering with.
