McDreamy to Join the Autobots in Transformers 3

Published 5 years ago by , Updated June 27th, 2013 at 3:09 pm,

Let the casting rumors begin! /Film picked up on an interview given to a Brazilian website where Patrick Dempsey (aka Dr. McDreamy of TV’s Grey’s Anatomy) said he’s going to start filming for Transformers 3 later this month. In the quote, he describes his character as being darker than the others. Could the franchise be getting its first human villain? Not that it would need one but, heck, why not. I’m not sure ‘things that are necessary/make sense’ are on the checklist for ‘Stuff Going Into the Next Transformers Movie’, but I mean, that’s just my gut feeling.

The Ghost Whisperer‘s Jamie Kennedy also gave a telling interview with 8KUPD Arizona, wherein he stated that he’d had a phone conversation that seemed to set him up for a role in the film. Dempsey and Kennedy would be joining John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and Ken Jeong as new cast members in the franchise. Who wants to take bets on which of them makes it to Transformers 4?

With Transformers 3 pre-shoots in progress and principal photography on the horizon, what are you guys hoping for in the next installment? We got a glimpse of robot heaven- maybe a trip to robot hell? Oh, wait. Already been there.

  1. Transformers 3… this whole thing is a pathetic joke, and they ain’t gettin’ another penny of my money!

    Mcdreamy? why don’t we just have George Lopez voice Optimus and call it quits? It cannot get any worse for the failed Transformers franchise.

    • yo r u fing nuts dude i kno i might sound a lil crazy when talkin bout protecting the autobots in transforms but yo these movies r awsome and i have no idea wats ur problm u might not buy the tickes but i sure will bud and i kno at least a millon other ppl tat would agree

  2. oh honestly, if Sir Ian McKellen and the entire cast of Lord of the Rings suddenly joined the cast of Transformers 3, I doubt I’d get excited about this project.

    I hated both previous Transformer films – the second in particular – and doubt they could do anything to make this trash any more palatable than the cardboard it is.

    So now, it becomes Transformer’s Anatomy? Or the Transformer Whisperer? gimme a break. This film will be a thursday rental for me… cheap night at the video store, right after I’ve rushed to see Invasion of the Saucer People 5: Zombie-vampire Saucer Strippers.

    • I lolled.

    • Tell us how you REALLY feel lol!

    • Umm which video store was that you can rent the Saucer Strippers movie from? Yeah I hope the store has a few copies of that, it sounds way better than xformers3…

  3. hmmm, I thought I could edit my post? did one of the forum functions change recently?

    anyway… I’m not a Grey’s Anatomy fan.. no, really, I’m not… but technically, it’s McDreamy, not McSteamy. Dempsey plays the former, while Eric Dane plays the latter.

    • Strangely enough, I knew that due to my roommate being obsessed with Grey’s.


    • Dempsey, may get turned into a Dane from the Bayloafer if he’s not careful. lolz…

  4. dam mike e. u are all over these posts, i gota say i liked both films so far big robots and megan fox is all i signed up for anyway.

  5. Cash cow or not…This “franchise” has become a very rare “Successful Failure”. I wish it would just go away.
    I’m sure TRANSFORMERS 3: PIGS OF BAY will make lots of noise and money, and continue to prove that is all the producers really care about.

  6. I think I’d be happy at this point with something that doesn’t suck.
