More Transformers 4 News from CinemaCon 2013 and more to come it seems.

Michael Bay has announced that Stanley Tucci has joined the cast of Transformers 4 and he’ll also be announcing another cast member name as well.

Mr. Tucci is an Emmy Award winning actor and you may know of him recently as the Scientist Abraham Erskine who "created" Captain America on the movie Captain America: The 1st Avenger.

While we warmly welcome a great actor like Stanley Tucci to our Transformers Family we are also eagerly awaiting the surprise announcement from Mr. Bay. It is said that the next cast announcement is another young cast member who will join Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz.

Awesome!

I would like this to be good news, but his role will probably be an extended cameo.

Very good news.

Does anyone remember John Malkovich? Quality actor, that

Hmmmm. Never heard of him, but by the looks of it you guys like him! And I wonder who the next young actor will be!
jru42287
Oh man, that's good news. I hope he's not wasted like Malkovich and McDormand were. Both amazing actors, and Bay made me hate both of their characters.
UltraAlanMagnus
Oooh.

Transformers 4 just got a WHOLE lot creepier. Tucci rules but I can never see hi.
M again without thinking of "Lovely Bones"

hopefully his role won't be as pointless as John Malkovich.... honestly until Hasbro comes out and assures the fan base that they are committed to an actual story/plot I have next to little faith in Michael Bay's ability to direct something that isn't laden with ass shots and explosions.
Yesss
I love this guy, here's hoping he doesn't butcher his own reputation like Turturro did.
Megastar
He okay.

It's funny seeing the people knocking the other previous "name" actors from the other movies..yet, you could tell each of them were having a LOT of fun in their characters. And I'm sure Tucci will be just fine with it as well. Not everything has to be a poetic masterpiece..the movies called for a certain type of character for the script..and as actors, they did what actors do.

Watch, he's gonna give NEST super-soldier serum and make autobots useless.

Hopefully he'll make NEST useless and give the Autobots the serum to make their own soldiers.

Anyway, a good choice. Like Malkovich and McDormand, but hopefully better.

It comes up when you do ": P", which is usually meant to be someone poking their tongue out jokingly. Instead everything becomes awkwardly sexual. SEE!?

Anyway, I like Tucci, he was amazing in The Hunger Games, good choice for a character!
soymonk
Will he be hosting his own talk show covering the Cybertornian Hunger Games? I wonder which tributes he'll interview.

I'm really jazzed about this, considering I love Tucci.
Wouldn't be surprised if Stanley Tucci is Doctor Arkeville (Or someone similar);

Doctor Arkeville - Teletraan I: the Transformers Wiki - Fall of Cybertron, War for Cybertron, Transformers: Prime, Toys, Kre-O, Rescue Bots

Seeing as we need a way to resurrect Megatron - without it seeming too unoriginal it would make sends that they include a human scientist working for the Decpeticons - given the inclusion of humans working with Decepticons in DOTM. Also remember the plot description (Not entirely sure if this was confirmed fake or anything);

"However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control"

Either way I'm guessing he'll be a scientist character.


------

In fact as I speculate further - casting could be something like;
Stanley Tucci - Doctor Arkeville OR Gregory Swofford
Mark Wahlberg - Mark Morgan
Ironhide4
Really don't care about the human cast, I'm eagerly awaiting to see who will the voice cast be for the bots and cons. Although I won't hold my breath as both factions hadn't much involvement in tf 1-3.
BeeIsMyHero
I love this guy! I've seen him in a ton of movies and thought he was awesome! I'll be interested to see what his character in this will be.
Driftx3
Sweet! We have a confirmed c-list creepazoid! Well shitdamns! I guess I was wrong about TF4 being a cauldron of suck!
Kaijumaster
His name......is Muerte.

I'm a fan of Tucci. I can't wait.

Great actor, for you history buffs check out Conspiricy. He played a great Adolf Eichmann.

What was wrong with McDormand?

Yeah, because the guy has such a great track record. "Anger Management" and "You Don't Mess with the Zohan"... Oscar-worthy stuff right there.

I feel like she didn't do her best acting-wise, and her character was just not very likable. Certain lines she says just kind of make me shudder. As far as likable goes, I realize she was intentionally made to seem like a bitch, but come on, there's a limit.

He's a great actor when he wants to be. See: Monk, "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?," etc.

How do people not get that the big names in the first 3 movies were almost completely goofing off, and playing caricatures of the real life people?

Lighten the fuck up. Actors are allowed to have fun too.

So, we going to see his ass too?

I love Turturro, even in his goofy roles. But let's not pretend that the TF movies are him "slumming it" against an otherwise spotless resume.

Stanley is a great character actor and I've never seen him in any role where he didn't exude charm and great skill. Looking forward to this.

Stanley is a great actor. I liked him in Captain America and The Hunger Games. I just hope he won't play a sterotype or won't end up being a waste like John Malkovich.

Establishing shot we see a 3D Imax shot of his ass as he walks up the stairs to saddle Mark Wahlberg - only to be interrupted when Nicola Peltz walks in and see's them

Most likely he'll be wasted. Given his former roles he'll likely play a scientist - pretty much being the Seymour Simmons character of the fourth movie. Given that we know his character now he'll likely have about the same level of screen time as either John Malkovich's character or maybe John Turturro's character at a push. He's not a main character though so I doubt he'll return for a second film.

Anyone good enough to play the part of an actor playing the part of Adrian Monk is probably good enough for a Transformers film.

Oh well, God no. I never claimed that. All actors have their shitty movies. Look at Natalie Portman, for Christ's sake. Great actress. Yet, she was just in some shit movie recently about medieval times.

Wasn't that kinda the point though?
We weren't really supposed to like them (well, other than trying to get a laugh or two off Malkovich, though whether that worked is another matter).
McDormand was basically a less incompetent and jerk-ish female version of Galloway, and Malkovich, he was... someone who's not gonna make "boss of the year" anytime soon.

Why so many people think, that John Malkovich's and others cameo roles was wasted? I very like their roles and so sincerely laughed in theater

Tucci is a great actor so I am happy that he'll be joining the cast of TF4.

Not to get too sidetracked here, but agreed Rf...his role in DOTM was a little goofy, but fun. If Malkovich's took the role and performed as directed..then that's all she wrote.

I've seen this (Tucci) guy in several TV and movie roles over the years, I'm sure he'll be fine whatever role he does.
