Patrick Dempsey and Jamie Kennedy up for roles in Transformers 3?

May. 3, 2010by:

These are some weird TRANSFORMERS 3 casting rumors.

According to a Google translation of a recent interview Patrick Dempsey conducted for Brazilian website BOL Noticias, the "Grey's Anatomy" actor says he has a roll in the upcoming third installment of Michael Bay's alien robot opus.

In talking about the differences between working in television versus working on a film, Dempsey is asked what movie work he's got on his plate. Dempsey answers, "'Flypaper,' I start filming later this month, and 'Transformers 3', which play a character that is far more 'dark' than others."

Looking past the improper syntax of the Google translation, there you go. "A character that is far more dark than others"? What's explodinator Michael Bay got up his sleeve?

And then there's Jamie Kennedy ("Ghost Whisperer", EXTREME MOVIE). According to TRANSFORMERS fansite TFW2005, the comic actor in an interview with radio station 98KUPD Arizona said, "I had an interesting interview with the people behind the new Transformers movie and I may have a role in the movie."

Off-the-cuff talk in interviews like this is scuttlebutt of the highest order, but it's interesting to get reader reaction nevertheless. How do you guys feel about either of these guys getting in on Bay's robo-shenanigans?
Extra Tidbit: Jamie Kennedy is so not funny.

WTH

Kennedy will be one of the 30 failing comic relief characters this time right? Dempsy as a Decepticon maybe?

Either way this movie does not need to be made.

I can handle Dempsey.. but Jamie Kennedy could be even more annoying then the latino roommate in the last movie.. and he literally killed the flick.

I think Dempsey would be good at playing some douche government agent or something. But if there something Transformers 3 needs less of its comic relief: the parents, the roommate, the twin-bots, the little megan fox humping robot, John Turturro, etc. I was really hoping Bay learned from his mistakes in the 2nd film, guess not.

Dempsey is an ICON from the 80's, I highly welcome his presence. But FUCK Jamie Kennedy he's a huge piece of shit.

does jamie have a panty on his head?

This is weird news, but I like both actors so I'm game. It would be cool to see Patrick play a dark character too. It's great to see 80's stars like Jason Bateman, Patrick Dempsey, and Robert Downey Jr. getting work now!

Bottom line is....

...it doesn't matter who gets cast as what. In a Michael Bay gig, none of that matters. These two will either lend their voices or be live-action, at the end of the day it's all about the bots and stuff blowing up, with some fast cars and Megan's cleavage. So really, it doesn't matter if Malkovich, Dempsey, Dwayne Johnson, Clint Eastwood, or even Barrack Obama gets cast in this...if Michael Bay wants a good movie, we get a good movie. If not, none of these names will make a Bay shitfest any

Bay may be great at explosions, but he needs great writers to make a story that makes sense to the people who aren't easily distracted by slowly revolving camera's and Megan's cleaveage. Don't get me wrong, she's hella hot, but she's not the reason I shell out $10 or more. I finally went back and watched the original series, and am wondering what is Bay's problem?

Patrick Dempsey as. . .

Unicron?

Really you could just modulate the hell out of anybody's voice. So Megatron has failed greatly and if he can't have this planet, nobody can. Forget the Fallen, he wakes up Unicron.

God, that sounds so shitty. It's probably what will happen.

Malibu's Most Wanted

Loved Jamie Kennedey in MALIBU"S MOST WANTED. Too bad he can't be B-Rad in it.

Kennedy makes sense

Seriously, his type of shitty humor is right up the ally of Transformers 1/2 humor, and the idiots that go see it will laugh! Just like they laughed when 2 little dogs were humping each other, and a mother getting high off brownies, and 2 ghetto black robots. Is this really a surprise? The idiot masses find anything funny.

And like the comment below me, who actually found Malibu's Most Wanted funny....people like him!

I really care to see the 3rd one since the 2nd was one of the more horrendous movies ever made. But if you throw Jaime Kennedy into the mix it's really asking to suck even more. I can't stand that idiot...he's not funny at all and thank goodness Jennifer Love Hewitt came to her senses and realized what every other person on earth has known for awhile...

Dempsey will probably be another "human transformer" or something retarded like that. Kennedy will probably be the next in line for the hilarious sidekick like Anthony Anderson in the first or the annoying spanish guy in the second. Either way the movie will be balls.

Weird casting, but I dont want too much human characters now. I hope TF3 is better story wise, fingers crossed.
