Sophia Myles, best known for appearing in the first two Underworld movies, as well as playing Isolde in Tristan and Isolde, will reportedly appear in an important supporting role in Transformers 4. Myles joins an all-star cast which already includes; Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and Stanley Tucci. According to The Wrap, who broke the news of Myles’ casting, she will play some type of scientist.
That isn’t the only recent casting news involving Transformers 4 however. While it’s long been known that most of the human cast from the original Transformers trilogy would not be returning, there have been plenty of rumors surrounding Josh Duhamel returning in a cameo capacity. Now it looks like Tyrese Gibson, who appeared as Duhamel’s right hand man in the first three, may be back as well. While promoting his new film Fast and Furious 6, he spoke about how he was optimistic about returning to the franchise, though nothing is official.
Casting news for the movie has been coming in at a rapid pace, it was not even a week ago that we learned that Grammer would play the movie’s human villain, and not long before that we learned of Tucci’s involvement, so don’t expect the casting news to let up on TF4 (which doesn’t even have an official name yet) to let up anytime soon.
