Sophia Myles Joins Transformers 4

Sophia Myles (Underworld) is the latest name to join the cast of Michael Bay’s Transformers 4, says a story today at The Wrap. Her role has not yet been officially confirmed, but the outlet is reporting that she’ll play a scientist.

ComingSoon.net, meanwhile, spoke today with actor Tyrese Gibson, who appeared in the first three Transformers films and who is now promoting his latest blockbuster, Fast & Furious 6. He says that he’s hoping to make a return as Master Sergeant Robert Epps for the fourth big screen adventure.

“I hope that I get that call,” Gibson says. “I hear there’s some kind of conversation that Josh [Duhamel] had with Michael Bay about coming back for Four. I hope I get that call. ‘Transformers’ is still the only tattoo I’ve ever gotten on my body. We never had a cartoon called ‘Fast & Furious’ when we were kids. I had ‘Transformers’ when I was a kid and it was one of my favorite cartoons. I grew up understanding that ‘Transformers’ world and that ‘Transformers’ universe.”

Check back soon for the full Gibson interview.

Myles, meanwhile, joins Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Kelsey Grammer and Stanley Tucci in the June 27, 2014 release. Although the plot of sequel is still top secret, Bay teased to ComingSoon.net that it will involve a “Chase from Hell.”
