"Transformers" Loses a Big Cast Member

by | July 11, 2006 | Comments

In an effort to deliver the timeliest and geekiest giant versatile robot news, all the movie sites have been reporting that Michael Clarke Duncan would star in Michael Bay‘s "Transformers." And he was going to. But he’s not anymore.

From ComingSoon.net: ""Believe me. Trust me when I say I wanted to do that movie. Trust me when I say I wanted to do ‘Transformers.’ I’m a big kid at heart. I watched ‘Transformers.’ That was one of my favorite cartoons. Optimus Prime was one of my favorite characters and to be head of a Navy Seal team going in and fighting these gigantic robots would have been perfect. But, we just, I don’t know. It was oil and water. It just did not mix and I wanted it to. Me and Michael Bay talked but we were on two different pages. I told him I was really sad because I said ‘you know I’m coming to do good work.’ I said ‘you already know that. You won’t have an actor that comes in high and that doesn’t know his work.’ I said ‘you know that I’m coming to do good work.’ We just couldn’t get it together."

For a little info on flicks that Mike IS going to appear in (like "Talladega Nights" and "Sin City 2") check out the full article right here.
