John Malkovich joins Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf in Transformers 3
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
John Malkovich and Frances McDormand have joined the cast of TRANSFORMERS 3, which already featured the return of Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel. Michael Bay announced the cast additions yesterday on his website. I’m not typically a fan of celebrity websites, but his is actually pretty decent. He doesn’t post often, but when he does, it’s usually good information about his projects. He also announced that Ken Jeong would be joining the cast:
“Transformers 3 has been going very well. We are going to shoot in LA, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow, and China. On the talent front, we just locked in Frances McDormand and John Malkovich. Both amazing actors I’ve always wanted to work with. We also just got Ken Jeong, he is the super funny actor stuck in the trunk from “Hangover” and the Doctor from “Knocked Up….I also was at a Ferrari charity event this week raising money for a hospital being built by Ferrari in Haiti. I announced that night the newest Autobot to join Transformers: the Ferrari 458 Italia.”
The other bit of news in that blurb is the addition of the Ferrari 458 Italia (pictured below). I’m a little rusty on my Transformers knowledge, so I don’t know which Autobot was a Ferrari, but a Ferrari Autobot sounds cool to me. TRANSFORMERS 3 is due to hit theaters on July 1st, 2011.
