Tyrese Gibson Campaigns For ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Return; Michael Bay Responds

Tyrese Gibson

Tyrese Gibson is no stranger to campaigning for roles via social media, even roles that may not even exist yet (exhibit A: John Stewart aka Green Lantern). This time, he’s chosen a more familiar and far more likely target for his involvement: the fifth Transformers film recently subtitled The Last Knight. Gibson used Instagram video to make his request. Check it out below.

I'm Thinking.

As you can see, Michael Bay replied via his own Instagram account with the cryptic words, “I’m thinking.” Given how these Transformers movies are made, shoehorning in another character doesn’t seem like a big deal, especially since they already got his on-screen partner-in-badass Josh Duhamel back too. Gibson is currently filming the eighth installment of his other blockbuster franchise, Fast & Furious.

Transformers: The Last Knight is supposedly Michael Bay’s last film (but he’s said that since five years and two Transformers ago so who knows) and stars Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael and Duhamel. It hits theaters June 23, 2017.
