Bay Says We'll See More Ramon Rodriguez in Transformers 3
Oh please no! If there is one thing I absolutely hated about Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, it was Ramon Rodriguez's character Leo Spitz, Sam's annoying roommate. All he did for a majority of the damn movie was whine and cry and yell and scream and make loud, annoying comments to Sam and Simmons. I was hoping this guy would get killed off, but alas he lived. Here's where the bad news comes in. In an interview with Michael Bay over on Hero Complex talking about actor Ramon Rodriguez, they mention that "if it plays out as he expects, the next installment would have a more substantial role for Rodriguez."
"I've worked with big stars, people like Will Smith, Sean Connery and Bruce Willis, but casting is a weird thing, it takes you places you don’t expect," Bay said. "We went looking for a sidekick in this movie, Shia’s sidekick, and we find this new kid who really pops on screen. I think he’s going to have a real bright career. It’s great to work with big stars, but it’s always fun to discover people." Sorry, but I respectfully disagree. Rodriguez was an annoying little runt that didn't show any talent over the course of your 150 minute movie. And I sincerely hope he's not in Transformers 3! I would've taken Jonah Hill over Rodriguez any day.
Am I the only one who feels this way? Halfway through the movie I turned to the person sitting next to me to shake my head in disbelief and get their nod in agreement. I can't be the only one who hated Ramon?!
