Via www.ok.co.uk we have a brief interview with Tyrese Gibson or “Epps” as we remember him from previous Transformers films. Many fans were expecting him to reprise his role together with Josh “Lennox” Duhamel in TLK. Sadly this didn’t happen, but finally Tyrese Gibson explains why he wasn’t in The Last Knight.
According to Tyrese:
“I’m not in the next one,” he explained. “So the truth is when we were shooting Fast 8, I closed my deal for Transformers 5, and I was supposed to go from Fast 8 to T5.
“But because they shot a lot of the movie in Europe, my schedule didn’t allow for me to go from Atlanta to London in between those days.
“I mean, I was p****d. The goal was for me and Josh Duhamel to come back and surprise the fans, that two of the guys from the original Transformers were back. Josh Duhamel was available and I wasn’t. So I was p****d.”
