Michael Bay has long suggested that Transformers 4 would see a complete overhaul of the human cast (and perhaps new looks for the robots), but Josh Duhamel has now suggested that there may be room for him to return as Major Lennox, as least for a cameo.
Josh told THR, “[Michael] said he wants to put me in it someplace. I don’t know if he was just saying that because he had me on the phone and he felt obligated or what, but you know what? I got to do three of those. It changed my career, it changed my life getting to be a part of something that big, so I’m grateful for even doing the first three of them.”
Last month, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura also said that a Shia LaBeouf cameo may be possible, if something within the story evolves naturally. However, with LaBeouf off being angry and arty, as well as suggesting he’s left Hollywood behind, it seems unlikely he’d want to come back.
At the moment the only confirmed cast members are Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor, with shooting due to start later this year.
