James Avery Cast to Lend Voice to New Autobot In Transformers 3

By bwbm on 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!

Website My Entertainment World has updated with a very brief listing for Transformers 5, revealing when filming for the next movie is due to begin. With the publicity around the Writers' Room project recently we can at least hope that there will be a completed script by the time they fire up the cameras, though absence of such certainly hasn't stopped production in the past...

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that a live-action Transformers event called Transformers Live will open in China in 2017.

Universal Studios Hollywood is gearing up the Chinese New Year with celebrations featuring Lunar New Year celebration that begins nect Saturday, January 30 to continue through Sunday, February 14, 2016.

Just as Michael Bay always comes back to do the next Transformers movie, it seems now a reliable trend that Michael Bay will choose Chicago as a shooting location. Maybe he just enjoys Portillo's, and I couldn't blame him for that, but whatever the cause it sounds like Chicago will see more robot action. In an interview with WGN Radio's Dean Richards focused on Bay's movie 13 Hours, the subject of Transformers and a return to Chicago come up briefly. We have a summary of the relevant portion of the interview. Click through to take a look, and to get a link back to the original if you want to hear more about 13 Hours.
Thanks to EDFHOBBIES who offers a first look at the 2016 Chevy Camaro 6th generation car release. While this one has been customized somewhat, it cannot be denied that Chevy is continuing to how love for Transformers Bumblebee namesake. According to the post, the black stripes and Autobot symbols ,and other custom touches were added after delivery. So we don't know if this is an official Transformers model, but it is still a Bumblebee to the owner and many fans.
