McDreamy is going to fight robots. A couple of days ago it was rumored that actors Jamie Kennedy and Patrick Dempsey would be part of the new cast of Michael Bay's Transformers 3, but we didn't report on it at the time. Variety has now confirmed that Patrick Dempsey has joined the cast and will start shooting this summer. Not much is known about his character, but Dempsey did say in the original interview that he will "play a character who is far more 'dark' than others." Very interesting, I wonder what that means. I'm sure we won't find out until this hits theaters on July 1st next year, which is when Transformers 3 arrives.
I'm assuming that if Dempsey was confirmed, it probably means that the Jamie Kennedy rumor was also true, although that news came from an entirely different source. Transformers 3 is being directed again by Michael Bay and will star most of the regulars, including Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Tyrese Gibson, as well as John Turturro. We also know that John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and Ken Jeong are newcomers to the cast. I'm very curious to learn more about the story and where this third sequel will take us this time, as Bay seems to be pulling together a very interesting cast. Stay tuned for updates as they prepare to film.
