James Avery Cast to Lend Voice to New Autobot In Transformers 3
bwbm - Tuesday, February 02, 2010


A recent episode of Unscripted featured an interview with James Avery, best known for his role as Philip Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In the interview, Mr. Avery talks about his life and his career both on stage and on television, but the most interesting tidbit (for us transfans anyway) is the blurb on the right of the video.

The blurb claims that Mr. Avery will be lending his voice to Silverbolt, a new Autobot in a little film called Transformers 3.

This role was never indicated by him in either of the videos available on the interview page, so we will have to take this as a rumor for now, although there really is not a reason to write that information unless Mr. Avery told them.

Transformers 3 has been rumored to start filming in May and possibly in 3-D. Locations scouted for filming include Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C., and Miami.

I donno everybody but if this is true, I'm more thinking that Uncle Phil will be getting the Alpha Trion treatment. I think I may be the only one thinking this though. Would be awesome to see that happen.

He was a Concord jet. I seriously hope he is the Arealbot leader and I hope Superion is more agile and not an ape like Devastator was. Superion would have rocket thrusters all over him so he should be able to stand straight up and move well. Remember in TF1 though they used the name Devastator f... read more

Actually you're both wrong! He'll be movie based so he won't be anything like any Silverbolt we've ever seen before! And he'll probably be a car!

Typically Transformers movies have had budgets around the 200 million dollar level, which includes The Last Knight with an estimated budget of $217 million - which according to Box Office Mojo, it still has not made back in its domestic ticket sales* as of July 20th. With this in mind, it's perhaps little surprise that the next movie up, the prequel focused on Bumblebee is being run much more lean. Screenrant has reported on the situation and given us a surprisingly low budget projection for the movie. Keep reading to find out what the film will be working with!


With production having just begun on next year's Bumblebee-focused movie, one would hope that assembling a cast has been on someone's mind. The Hollywood Reporter brings word of a number of young actors currently in talks for parts in the film, following behind leads Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. No one involved has given any specifics yet towards the story, only sticking to the rundown of Lorenzo di Bonaventura that it'll be smaller, less robots, and more character development focused. Keep reading to find out more about the newest round of casting!
It is that time of year again when the annual Transformers Hall of Fame nominees are chosen by you to the Transformers fans. This year we have 12 brand new choices lined from all the movies in for the Favorite Robot Movie Character Poll. That's where you come in. We need your help in narrowing this down to the top three characters. Those will be sent onto Hasbro who will count the grand total of votes from many sites with the winner announced at HasCon 2017. Vote now through Saturday at midnight on the Poll after the jump.
According to Hollywood reporter, actor Jorge Lendeborg Jr. is currently in talks to play the male lead in the next Transformers movie that is tentatively referred to as the "Bumblebee Movie". Jorge has played roles in The Land (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Brigsby Bear (2017). Set sometime in the 1980s, the lead female role will be played by Hailee Steinfeld. The choice of the new lead role, will give us a better idea of what kind of movie this may be. As word has it, this one will feature less robots, and more human character development.
According to the LA Times, the next foray into the Transformers Movie Universe will get a record $22 Million tax credit for shooting the movie entirely in California, USA. The money comes from what is being called a "state program aimed at curbing so-called runaway production." Is it just me, or does it seem odd WE the people should foot the bill for productions that all the profit goes back to the studio? California is not alone, Michigan and other states have provided these incentive before. The idea being, these productions will bring jobs and income to the state.
