T'formers 2 gets Rainn

05.28.2008

Rainn Wilson's performance as Dwight Schrute is one of the very best things about NBC's fantastic "The Office." On the other end of the spectrum, his cameo in JUNO was one of the worst things about an already painful film. Wilson's cinematic success may be determined later this year with the release of THE ROCKER and now news that he's signed on to star in TRANSFORMERS 2. MTV News spoke to Wilson (who's out promoting THE ROCKER) and he confirmed he'll be starring in the film despite having not read the script. While they didn't have many details on the role other than he'd be playing a college professor, we can elaborate a little bit. Wilson will be playing Professor Colan, Sam Witwicky's physics professor at Princeton. A character breakdown describes Colan as "a self-satisfied intellectual who compares himself to Einstein, and is arrogant enough to wear leather pants to look cool." That pretty much sounds like a perfect Rainn Wilson role. Don't expect Wilson to play a huge part in the film though as it'll be more of an extended cameo. If you're interested in playing a part in TRANSFORMERS 2, you're in luck.

An open casting call for TRANSFORMERS 2 background talent/extras will be held this weekend in Philadelphia at Bullies Sports Bar and Restaurant located in the Wachovia Spectrum (where the Flyers and 76ers formerly played). The scenes they'll be casting for will take place in Philly and Princeton, NJ. Here are the specifics:

The open call will be held on Saturday, May 31. Enter parking from the Broad St. gate only (mention “Transformers casting” for free parking). Enter “BULLIES” from the exterior entrance, on the South side of the Spectrum.

Casting professionals will be seeing SAG actors from 10AM- 11AM (please bring your union card for admission) and non-union men and women from 11AM to 3PM. College age men and women are especially needed. No acting experience necessary; both SAG and non-union talent will be considered. All roles are paid positions. Please bring a snapshot.

Wow Mike, way to jump on the "juno hate" bandwagon. Respect = Gone.

Though Rainn Wilson in Transformers 2 does sound promising.

H-Man

I think the bandwagon backlash is a direct response to the bandwagon praise for this overhyped flick. an oscar for screenplay? Seriously? Honest to blog?

I dont hate the movie but if it wasnt for the over the top universal praise i woudnt so much as farted towards that movie.

now where are the Juno nazis on this blog to give me the smackdown?

Just to comment on something said in the article, what's with all the hate for JUNO? That was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable movies I've seen in a long time. I'm a little sick of this bandwagon backlash effect that goes on sometimes.

When I read the title, I was thinking it was Korean pop star Rain, but then I realized it had an extra N, and my dissapointment turned to relief. This is good news I think.

Michale bay is making it rainn on you hoes.

Here's an idea... stop telling what dipshit humans you're adding to the cast and tell me which TRANSFORMERS you're adding.

I dont need pictures, just give me names.

Rainn rules, can't wait, but there ain't no way I'm believing that fucking Witwicky kid got into Princeton.

ALRIGHT!

You know, I don't care who's in Transformers 2. It could be Rainn, it could be Oprah, it could be George Bush....heck, it could by some random guy on the road for all I f'n care! Transformers has the robots, giant f'n robots, Shia as Sam, and some new babe that looks smokin' hot. Bring it on, fellas!
