The past few weeks have seen several Autobots and Decepticons revealed in Michael Bay’s Tranformers: The Last Knight, the latest in his Transformers film franchise. Not much has really been revealed on the human side though, but now comes news of the newest addition. Liam Garrigan, who played King Arthur in the television series Once Upon A Time, has been cast in the film as none other than… King Arthur.
This news comes from Mashable, who also say the wizard Merlin will play a role, though no one that we know of has yet been cast in that role. This is rather unusual news to hear of an actor playing the same character in two very separate franchises, but maybe Michael Bay is just a fan of Once Upon A Time? Merlin also played a fairly vital role in Once Upon A Time, as portrayed by Elliot Knight. Might he also make an appearance in the film?
Transformers: The Last Knight reunites Michael Bay with franchise veterans Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and Peter Cullen, who will once again voice Autobot leader Optimus Prime. New additions to the cast include Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School), Jerrod Carmichael (Bad Neighbours), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), Santiago Cabrera (Merlin), Liam Garrigan (Once Upon a Time) and Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World). The film hits theaters on June 23rd, 2017.
