"Transformers" Cast Shaping Into Something Cool

by | April 21, 2006 | Comments

IGN FilmForce snagged some solid scoopage by learning the names of several actors attached to Michael Bay‘s "Transformers" adaptation. We learned last week that Shia LaBeouf was signed up, but now comes a parade of names, including Jon Voight, Bernie Mac, John Turturro, and Michael Clarke Duncan.

From IGNFF: "IGN has confirmed through multiple sources that Oscar winner Jon Voight is in talks to reunite with his ‘Pearl Harbor‘ director, Michael Bay, as "Keller." A casting notice online describes Keller as the U.S. Secretary of State. Voight and LaBeouf previously starred together in ‘Holes.’

Another Bay veteran, ‘Armageddon‘s Michael Clarke Duncan, is closing in on the role of "Figueroa." This character is described in a casting notice posted at Sneak Peek TV as being "Dominican by way of the Louisiana Bayou. Chief Warrant officer in the Army. Spirited fellow who loves to sing. Close team member of Lennox."
