Actor Josh Duhamel, who starred in the first three Transformers films, revealed that he may make an appearance in Transformers 4. We reported in June that the new sequel will have a whole new cast, although it seems director Michael Bay wants to find a place for the actor to return as Lennox.

Here's what Josh Duhamel had to say in a recent interview.

"[Michael] said he wants to put me in it someplace. I don't know if he was just saying that because he had me on the phone and he felt obligated or what, but you know what? I got to do three of those. It changed my career, it changed my life getting to be a part of something that big, so I'm grateful for even doing the first three of them."


Last month, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura revealed that a Shia LaBeouf cameo may be possible, if something within the story evolves naturally. As of now, the only confirmed cast members are Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor. It isn't known when production will begin on Transformers 4.

Transformers: Age of Extinction was released June 27th, 2014 and stars Nicola Peltz, Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, T.J. Miller, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Jack Reynor. The film is directed by Michael Bay.

    @youngrizo I get the studio's perspective. They know it's an easier sell with a human face. Great points about the series, and completely agree with all of them, actually.

    I think Bay is a superficial guy, but I respect that he knows he is and doesn't really try to be something he's not. You can't continue to hate the guy forever when he's at least honest with himself.

    @daveactor7
    I've seent he original animated movie, and I've even gone back and tried to watch it recently and as a transformers fan, I find it unwatchable. It doesn't stand the test of time. It's somewhere between voltron and the original G1 series in how ridiculous the plot and characters come across.

    It has it's charm, but I lack the nostalgia bone that might make me enjoy it more than it deserved.

    @bawnian-dexeus and @dan1, I agree a great story can be done without humans, but you're talking about a franchise that has an already bloated budget, movie after movie... 250 million dollars is no joke, and the suits are going to want actors for people to latch on to for that kind of money, I completely understand where you're coming from.... the robots are definitely humanized and have a lot of traits that are not unrelatable, but there's a distinct disconnect.... I could see it being possible if they got the writers from movies like Wall-E or Wreck it Ralph cause those achieved so much with so little human element... but that element was still there.

    Also, while the whole over arching story of the original trilogy is shoddy at best, separately, the first and 3rd films are standouts IMO. On one hand I really liked one, but the lack of finished cg meant Bay used a lot of horrible camera tricks to hide it. the 2nd we can all agree was bloated garbage, and the writing or lack there of is to blame. the action was still spectacle worthy of seeing but without a decent story it made the movie total crap.

    The 3rd on the other hand, with the CGi finally being where they needed it, and the 3d shooting, the use of the red camera meant Bay had to slow down his frenetic style significantly, which made for better paced, better shot scenes throughout the film. And the story... I enjoyed it, it was simple as these stories always are... the decepticons having a plan to do something massively evil.. the autobots fighting them, but DOTM was great for a few reasons, the exploration of the relationship between Optimus and Sentinel, the betrayal was very well done, the entire last 30 minutes of action is not only ridiculous scale wise but so well shot it's hard to be bored by it...(unlike films like Star Wars episodes 1 through 3, Indiana Jones and Red Tails) - partly the benefit of real sets and also th ebenfit of a director who knows how to shoot action.

    Storywise I only had 2 major gripes with the film, one was the capture of the autobots in the final act that was never shown, as far as how it happened, and 2 was that the Sam character vows to Kill the other guy and their fight is subpar and that finish with the blow to the chest was not enough to satiate his vow to kill the guy IMO

    Just some of my thoughts. I try to be objective about this franchise as with any other, but I defend it because a lot of people just like to hate on anything Bay related and to me, that's not helpful or constructive at all. I'd go into more detail but i doubt most people care about a detailed observation of the franchise.

    @youngrizo I don't think so.....I've been a fan of Transformers since G1. Have you seen the animated "Transformers: the movie" that came out 1986? That actually and sadly had better writing then all of the three films directed by Bay.

    As @dan said, less humans. People can connect with the aliens if you give them a strong backbone. If they have that, the movie can stand. Sadly, action is not enough to carry the entirety of it. Transformers 1 was close to establishing that. Now those writers, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have wrote for the ingenious 2009 Star Trek film and the much anticipated follow-up and by the looks of it, has action, great dialogue, great chemistry-that is a true strong blockbuster. That is something Transformers desperately needs and people say it cannot be done because it's just about two warring alien races-it can.

    @youngrizo Haha. You can't resist. Every time an article comes out about Bay/Transformers, you gotta be there to defend it. I'm not crazy, nor raging, and am 27 years old. People can connect with the robots just fine without humans. I don't think the human factor is as necessary as it seems. Good writing can overcome a lot.

    @youngrizo I agree that any movie deserves good plot structure, but there have been successful movies without a single human character. In the case of Transformers, especially in my case without being a die hard fan, I would prefer for the human characters to be around, but not the focus. You can build a story around sentient robots quite easily if the right idea is thrown in. Far as im concerned, Autobot characters and Decepticon characters are no different than human characters, simply because they are just as flawed and corruptible. Regardless of how it turns out, I'll be there

    @ejk1 As should Bay.

    @dan1 Agreed. Like you've been saying, a movie set on Cybertron is the way to go.

    This movie is gonna rock.
    Michael Bay is a great action movie Director.
    The writers though, they need new writers.

    And anyone who believes a big budget movie won't have human characters in it is a little insane. Even Toy Story, Wall-E, Wreck it Ralph and Antz had humans.... the thing about writing any story is there has to be some way for those who are not just fans of watching robots fight, to connect to the plot. But those of you that are either crazy raging fanboys or too young to understand plot structure, won't get that.

    Haters gonna hate

    He did great job with first,he did good job with second,but with third,what he did>losing the point.! I believe the first and second have good story,because Roberto Orci,Alex Kurtzman was in...in the third,was not...so the story was about people,and not about TRANSFORMERS,and if you notice that,in transformers 1,the sound effect when transformers transformed,you can listen it clear.! in the second small different,but in the third,you can not hear the sound effect,if you heard it probably was one or two times,no more...Well with few words,transformers wants new direction,because this one,goes to the worst...
