Transformers 5 The Last Knight
John Turturro On The Transformers Film Series & Why He Chose The Role Of Agent Seymour Simmons
RAC - Monday, May 01, 2017


Actor John Turturro has an impressive resume above and beyond his Transformers work. Impressive enough to lead some to ask why he'd decide to work in a movie series that he's previously described as "not the kind of movies I watch". In a recent interview with Stephen Colbert at the 6th annual Montclair Film Festival, Turturro addresses that question briefly while also talking about what it's like to work with Michael Bay. Keep reading for the excerpt.
Turturro then went on to talk about several milestones in his career, which included ancedotes about working with Woody Allen, Spike Lee, the Coen brothers, Robert De Niro, and Michael Bay on the TRANSFORMERS films. When asked to elaborate on his experience while working with Bay on the man vs. machines toys-to-action series, Turturro stated, “When you ask him [Bay] a question (about your character) he goes, ‘When you see the movie, you’ll understand.’” Heh. That doesn't seem like much to go on to me, but wait, there's more.

Feeling the need to give Colbert some more insight, Turturro continued, “I never used to do these big, giant films because there used to be medium-sized films,” he said. “But now there are no medium-sized films. There are small films or giant films. Thank god for television.”


Turturro is reportedly returning as Agent Seymour Simmons in Transformers: The Last Knight, which releases to the public on June 23rd.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
You can't tell me that Transformers The Last Knight wouldn't have been more entertaining if the movie's conflict was resolved by a rap battle between ...well, anyone really. But for purposes of argument I'm gonna go with Nitro Zeus and Cogman. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But to promote the Leader Class Megatron and Calibur Optimus Prime, TakaraTomy did engage the services of two Japanese rappers to extol the virtues of the two toys in a rap battle. It's all in Japanese, naturally, but it's more than hilarious enough to be worth a look. You'll find the video embedded in the full post just below!
The robots in disguise are visiting in Sioux Falls on Wednesday. Optimus Prime and several other characters from the Transformer films are visiting two Sioux Falls Walmarts to promote the most-recent film in the series, "Transformers: The Last Knight." The retail tour is a partnership between Hasbro and Walmart.
