The fashion model-turned-actor Tyrese Gibson discusses about his character in 'Transformers' sequel, 'Revenge of the Fallen', and insists that the movie will have more action sequences.
Tyrese Gibson has opened up about "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". When asked by Movie Web about his Sgt. Epps character in the "Transformers" sequel, he confessed that his character has got an upgrade. "Yes, my character has been upgraded to Master Sergeant Epps. I am the top dog in the air force. I am a master sergeant. I am bringing on way more air strikes," he claimed.
"Michael Bay really beefed up my presence in this sequel. I was really happy about that," the 29-year-old shared his excitement. "Just being on the set with all of my cast members really made me feel like we'd created a family union. I think we created something that is really special. The fans out there really showed up and made us feel appreciated for what we did. It felt good to be working on something that the world is waiting to see."
Though revealing much of his part, the "2 Fast 2 Furious" actor remained mum about the new Transformers to be featured in the sequel. "No. I can't. I'm sorry. It's all secrets," he insisted. "Its way more robots. There are a whole bunch of new robots that the world is going to be introduced to. There is going to be way more action sequences. All of the stuff that goes on is really insane." More on the interview can be read at Movie Web.
"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" comes from director Michael Bay and the screenwriting team of Ehren Kruger, Alex Kurtzman and Orci. Starring once again Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, the action fantasy follows the story about two clashing robot clans on Earth. This time, the heroes will be facing a stronger and more powerful villain, the Fallen, which forces them to bring back their fallen foe, Megatron. It won't be available on the U.S. big screen until June 26, 2009.
