Tyrese Gibson In Talks For Transformers 4

Tyrese-Gibson-Robert-Epps-Transformers-4-TFW2005

Out of the human characters appeared on the movieverse, Tyrese Gibson’s character Robert Epps has always been a fan favorite. Despite his fellow cast members openly stating that they won’t be back for Transformers 4, Mr. Gibson always said he’d be delighted to come back.

And here he is… stating that he and Michael are in the talks for Transformers 4. Below is a rough transcript of what he said to Mobli.

“I don’t know… me and Michael Bay, we’ve been exchanging e-mails… I mean Text Messages and I just hope that it works out… I mean things fell apart with Megan Fox and so we had to do what we had to do to pick up the pieces and keep moving with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. And now things fell apart with Shia. Business is business I think. I think Shia has expressed his opinion. I think when you are associated with movie like Transformers other than the box-office sees you as an actor… a full-on actor, lot of people arguably can say they don’t take you serious… in this town called “Hollywood”… because the reason all these doing big is because of the robots, the big action and special effects and so in some capacity could diminish your value as an actor which you bring to the table. Even though it’s huge for your brand and your image and your celebrity around the world. But Shia is one of those real actors full-on real actors… whether gets an independent role where he just get paid Per diem or at some role he’s just passionate about and that he may do for free. As long as he gets associated with these heavy-weight actors… that’s the space he’s been. But for me I started this s*** with Shia, Josh, Michael Bay and the Team and sometimes you lose a team member. In my mind not be in a part with Transformers 4… if that’s even happening… it f**** me up. I’ll be honest… I love it. It was the childhood, movie, favorite of mine… you know I don’t really not wanna be a part of the franchise. Period. You know when you lose a team member sometimes you gotta keep going. Period.”

    f*ckin awesome! I remember a while back, Tyrese was talking about how he liked the movies because it could introduce new people to the franchise and whatnot. he seemed really genuine about his thoughts and seemed he wasnt just in them just because of the big money (although that's def a factor =P). So, add that to the fact that he was cool and hilarious--and YES I want him to return!

    Hope he does come back. Epps is the best human character in these movies.

    god I hope not; 3 movies and only one of his lines had any contribution to the whole franchise...

    Well...he is one of the best human characters, so this counts as good news to me atleast. I can't see why Bay wouldn't allow him to come back.

    We're going in a totally different direction.....with the same damned cast.



    I'll be honest and say if we have to have ANY over-lapping human characters, i'd prefer Lennox and Epps, but if we can keep the rest of the characters out of it that would be at least something. Yes, even Simmons. He was tiring and there's nothing more that they can really do with the character....

    Looks like we can close this thread now. Everything that can be said has already been said

    I think they're bringing back Morshower.

    If it were up to me Epps and Lennox would share the lead for the sequel. They earned it. And it would keep the plot in a military action oriented direction instead of the Sam Becomes A Man trilogy we just got.

    And I agree they need to keep the number of returning characters to a minimum. No cameos by Mr and Mrs Witwicky. And definitely no Simmons.
