Patrick Dempsey Officially Part of the Cast of Transformers 3

May 4, 2010

Patrick Dempsey

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.

I can't believe he would take this role but I guess they sold him.

Great! I think the only movie which might have the potential to be worse than Transformers 2 will be Transformers 3 and now that this ugly-nosed idiot is in it, I am all the more certain of that fact.

Bay seems to be introducing more and more humans than he is with the Transformers. Since when did the Transformers franchise revolved around humans anyway? Maybe Bay should change the movie title to Sam Witwicky and Friends featuring robots from outer space. Bay will yet again bomb this movie. Sad.

Is Bay fucking deaf? How many times have people said to get rid of these annoying human characters, and he adds MORE? Fuck this. Bay's already pissed on any potential this franchise had.

and he comes the bashing as usual 'like this is an oscar movie even tho we kno its not suppose to be cuz we kno how bay does his movies'. people are funny. criticizing of others but usually cant stand people criticizing them. bay and company doesnt have a gun to yalls head. we all kno that the transformers movies arent solely about the storyline. wat u think its about..... DONT WORRY, I'LL WAIT.

I never understand Bay's cast, hope he comes up with a good movie though.
