Not a surprise. But still good.
Black Oracle
Not that he'd be playing any other role, but nice to hear from him.
Ace Convoy
woot woot !!!
Torque
awesome! hopefully our 2 favorite NEST agents will have better roles this time around-and by better roles, i mean not just standing around-something important, but not necessarily something that take up the whole movie-like in TF1.
TRANS+CRAZY
Figured that he'll be back for TF3.
Autobot Burnout
I hope Epps gets more screen time in the third film. I like him, Lennox, and Simmons the most of all the human characters. I honestly could care less about the Witwickys or even Mikayla anymore.
Omega Charge
I like the character, glad he'll be back. I want to see more from him than just BIG TUFF GUY WHO CALLS IN SPLOSIONS though.
G1Wheeljack
No real surprise but nice to get confirmation. Since he's bak I'm assuming Lennox will be as well.

I think we should ban Twitter feeds as sources of news similar to how IMDB is treated around here.

Ya know.. just on principles and stuff. Or whatever lame excuse can be used to achieve it.

I should REALLY stop reading Tyrese's twitter before my laughter wakes up everybody in the neighborhood.

I can see your point, bro. But Twitter is a great way to get news straight from the sources (Even before they reach any newspaper or anything). It's upclose and personnel.
Liokaiser
Awesome. Bring it!!!!
Optimus_Khan
Cool. Hope he has more of a role, same goes for Josh Duhamel.

Twitter is fine with me. It's the best rss feed I ever had and it's his official twitter page coming from the man directly. The more direct source the better. Common sense should apply with Twitter as news tho'.
VaderPrime1
Awesome
Kickback


And I was going to say, "....because he was going to play someone else in the next movie?" ... but Black Oracle beat me to it, as always.

ah, the much sought-after middle ground. too bad the middle ground doesn't exist in these movies =T

Left cheek! Left cheek! Left cheek!

Not that I thought NEST would be abscent from TF3, but this is good to know. I do hope that he and Lennox actually have roles though. Fingers crossed about John Turturro's return...
Sage o' G-fruit
Good to see that Epps will be back! Him and Lennox are always the highlights of Movieverse fiction, IMO.
jgoss
great to hear i hope that josh comes back too.
seeker311
great because his role did so much for the 1st and 2nd movies
just1nj
"It wasn't my best toss"
Draven
Good. I liked Epps.
evebird
You know, I am not particularly a fan of the movies or the movieverse, but I have to admit I really have an affinity for Tyrese and his character. He definitely did "bring it" to the TF universe. And he seems like a really cool dude IRL.
Rod
So he went from Technical Sergeant (E6) To Cheif Master Sergeant (E9) in the few years between 1 and 2 (Which is IMPOSSIBLE)... there really isnt anywhere for him to go after that. But is a Bay movie so who knows

Well, he did have first hand knowledge of a robotic alien life form. There's a good chance that might have sped up his promotion.

Don't blink or you'll miss him.

I really wish Bay would tone down the involvement of the US military. With all due respect to the various armed forces, the movie's called TRANSFORMERS, not MILITARIES OF THE WORLD.
Laserbot
YAy!! this makes me happy! ^_^
tpainzbro
I hope him and Josh have more centralized roles like in the first one. The second one was more one liners. I would much rather see them then the Witwickys and Leo. Besides who doesnt like Tyrese such a great guy and grateful to be a part of the franchise. Thats what we need.

lets hope he improves his toss
Silk Spectre
I'm hoping for more Epps and Lennox in TF3.
SwindlesShop
oh great it's not like he gets any other movie roles
Doug
I'm not really surprised. I figured Tyrese will return.
Dark_T_Zeratul
"Epps is here to STAY!!"

Looks like he's kicking the bucket, then.
Cmdr Prime
The film wouldn't be the same without him or Josh so bring the rain

Tyrese is Botcon's own Kanye West...


"hey TF designers Imma let you finish...wait, no I'm not, Imma just talk about ME!"
Prime82
Oh wow ...so excited to hear him call sam a little kid 500 times and bring it!
janeDoe001
It's not always the lines, it's the character's personality and a friendly face we can remember from the first two movies. (knowing Michael Bay, if they're replaced, it'll be by someone annoying)

I hope 'Lennox' (yeah kinda forgot the actor's name...) will be in this one. I know he's in The Crazies but he should get back in this. And I want an ACTUAL recap of his family not just when I read the novelization.

To be honest, I hope they focus more on the military human characters in the next movie. They're about the only human characters that I don't totally hate.
RedAlert Rescue
I'd not be that embarassed to have forgotten any of the soldiers names it's not like anyone would miss them that mutch if they disappeared from subsequent movies with no explanation.
03Mach1
Continuity FTW! I hate sequels that change actors or drop characters without explaination.
seeker311
The character, personality, or the lines did nothing for this movie verse; please just kill him off within the first 2 minutes of the 3rd one.
autobotblaster
i have only read the OP on this thread, but i know as i post this there are: 3 left cheek references and the words "the rain" have been spoken 5 times . sorry folks, had too. anyway back on track: i love SRG. EPPS and i cant think of someone who can pull that roll of better than tyrese, glad to hear he's back!

QFT.

I'm sure Bay would've turned G.I. Joe into a masterpiece.
