Transformers 2 Character Breakdowns, Plus Devastator!
It’s cooooooooming. That’s right, folks, “Transformer 2″ is gearing up for production. Maybe it’s not in production NOW, but it’s gearing up, and casting notices have already been sent out for actors. From these casting breakdowns (below), we know a couple of things: one) The movie will move forward a few years, since by the time of the movie Sam (Shia LeBouf) will be in college (Princeton, no less!); two) No mention of Megan Fox at all; three) Tyrese’s Sgt. Epps character will return, since they’re already casting his wife; and four) Also returning is John Turturro’s uber asshole G-Man character.
[CHUCK] 19-25 yrs., Sam’s roommate at Princeton. He runs a conspiracy theory website. Funny in an irreverent, edgy way, he is shocked to see his conspiracy theories come to life. (2nd Lead) [U.S. MILITARY LEADER] Late 20s/early 30s, African American with a great sense of humor and a tough military presence.

Epps’ wife, has 4 kids, sassy and sexy, good with comedy. Submit African American actresses only [MOMMA SIMMONS] This NY Momma is in her late 60s / early 70s.
