Josh Duhamel set to return in Transformers: The Last Knight. The New Year’s Eve and Ramona and Beezus actor will once again play the role of Lieutenant Colonel Lennox in the fifth installment of the science fiction franchise.
Having previously played the character in the first three films of the series, Duhamel was one of many recurring actors who did not appear in the fourth movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction. In that film, Duhamel and his co-stars were replaced by a new cast led by Mark Wahlberg, although it seems the production team is having second thoughts about jettisoning all (or at least some) of the characters from the original trilogy.
In any case, The Last Knight will also see Wahlberg return to the franchise, alongside several new faces:
The Transformers: The Last Knight cast also includes the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as newcomer Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show, Neighbors) is also set to play an unspecified leading role.
Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin June 6 in Detroit with production planned to take place at various locations around the world.
Michael Bay returns to the director’s chair for the film, which is set to be written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down).
