TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT (2017): Liam Garrigan Joins In Surprise Role

Liam Garrigan

Liam Garrigan set to appear in Transformers: The Last Knight. The Once Upon A Time actor will reprise his role as King Arthur in the fifth installment of the Michael Bay series.

Garrigan’s casting comes as a bit of a shock since the Transformers franchise has not traditionally featured fantasy characters and elements. Compounding the surprise of the announcement is the fact that the wizard Merlin is also supposed to play a role in The Last Knight, with no actor attached to the part yet:

A Paramount Pictures film, Transformers: The Last Knight is confirmed to include the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, Tyrese Gibson as Robert Epps, as well as a new role for Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Santiago Cabrera also have roles, as does Sir Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Thor).

A few of the titular robots in disguise have also been confirmed to return, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Drift, and newcomer Sqweeks for the Autobots, with Megatron, Barricade, and Onslaught for the Decepticons.

Michael Bay returns to the director’s chair for the film, which is written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). Ian Bryce, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
