    IGN FilmForce reports that Jon Voight, Michael Clarke Duncan, Josh Duhamel, Bernie Mac, Tyrese, John Turturro, Rachael Taylor, Megan Fox, Travis Van Winkle and John Robinson are in talks to join Shia LaBeof in Paramount/DreamWorks' big screen Transformers adaptation.

    Directed by Michael Bay, the film is scheduled for a July 4, 2007 release.

    Visit the link above to learn more about their characters in the film!

    Would be cool to see some of these names make it into the film. Jon Voight, Michael Clarke Duncan, and John Turturro would be great.

    MCD he is a good actor everyone else like Bernie Mac he better just be random solider #4 who is killed or something. Cus if he isn;t I just no he will do one of his trademark bad jokes in the movie.:( Some news for this movie makes me really happy but then news like this hits and I get sad.

    As long as Bernie Mac avoids the stale "Mutha gawd day-yum honkey mofo kracka azz kracka honkey whitey white bred kracka sheeeeit kracka foo'!" garbage, then I won't mind his presence.

    Too much.

    I'm not terribly disappointed with any of the other cast selections, though.

    I just googled her too and i recognised her from two and half men, she was that 16 year old that they both thought was hot but was too young to even talk to her lol.

    Hmmm interesting casting, im not sure what to make of some of the choices, i.e bernie mac, but as most of the characters are military based im hopin it wont be as corny as its makin out to be so far.

    I honestly hope we dont have a thunderbirds like movie on our hands here.

    ^ I laughed at that too, but I am not thrilled by the cast at all.

    Bernie Mac is a comedian, he doesn't belong in a movie like this ... UNLESS they are doing what they did to Thunderbirds. "Hey its a kids show ... lets make it kiddie!"

    Where the F' was Micheal Bay when they selected the cast?

    ughh. Dumb. Its machines changing to robots ... who are taller than buildings. Jets and crap changing and fighting. Not all of them at a campfire signing Kombayah and eating smores. But I bet they will make it cheesy. Hopefully, the visuals will be cool. But now I expect less from story and acting.

    All I know is they are pissing on Bumblebee's grave and crapping on Skywarps rusty corpse.

    I know one thing about the show is that we don't need humans to get the drama and emotion from. Spike did help the transformers but he didn't get in the way he didn't try fighting no. Prime wanted him out of the way he got out of the way.The transformers have alot of emotion and in the show they show it so plese Bay to screw up.:(

    Wtf are you talking about? They post a list of human cast members, which this movie was ALWAYS going to have, and you act like they've already ruined the movie? If it's about Bernie Mac, have you forgotten he was in both Ocean's 11 and 12? He can be funny without being cheesy.

    "But now I expect less from story and acting."

    You say this AFTER they cast Jon Voight, John Turturro, and Michael Clarke Duncan?

    Bernie Mac and Jazz would be the ones that get along the best, it seems.

    "ya'll ain't gon' be comin' over here messin' up my city! Look at this mutha****a, he got a big ass shoulder cannon, but gotta have another ******* hold him in order to fire it. Ain't that some bull****?" :D

    Here is more on the cast from IGN.com Bernie Mac will be the guy who sells Sam his car.

    April 20, 2006 - IGN FilmForce has learned which actors are poised to join the previously announced Shia LaBeof in the cast of the DreamWorks-Paramount live-action feature film version of The Transformers. (LaBeof will star as "Sam," the unlikely teen hero of the movie.) 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 LaBeof 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."

    And who is Lennox? Sources indicated that Vegas star Josh Duhamel has a lock on the role of the young military commander.

    Bernie Mac is the frontrunner for the role of "Bobby Bolivia." A casting notice said Bolivia "could sell ice to an Eskimo. Tries to get Sam to buy a car. Your typical wheelin' dealin' used car salesman."

    IGN has also learned that the following actors are being lined up for roles: Tyrese as "Epps"; John Turturro as "Simmons"; Rachael Taylor as "Maggie," previously described as a super-hot and super-smart codebreaker for the government; Megan Fox as "Mikaela," referred to in a casting notice as Sam's love interest; Travis Van Winkle as "Trent"; and John Robinson as "Miles."

    There is still no word yet on who will be voicing the Autobots and the Decepticons
