Malkovich And McDormand Cast In TRANSFORMERS 3

You know how every now and then you read about a prestigious actor taking a role in a movie you would think a bit beneath their prestige? This is one of those stories.

Two-time Academy Award nominee John Malkovich and three-time Academy Award nominee and one-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand have been hired to appear in Michael Bay’s giant robots fighting and exploding sequel Transformers 3. According to Deadline, Malkovich will be playing franchise star Shia LaBeouf’s character’s first boss while McDormand will be playing the National Intelligence Director.

So is Bay aiming for a higher caliber film, with quality actors and a quality script? This is a Transformers film, so I’m not holding my breath. Hopefully, Malkovich and McDormand have something worthwhile to spend their paychecks on.
