Actor Anthony Hopkins has joined the cast of the new Transformers movie titled Transformers: The Last Knight.
Hopkins will join Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, and Josh Duhamel in the sequel, reported Ace Showbiz.
Announcing the casting news, a post on director Michael Bay’s official Twitter account read: “The man, the myth, the legend - help us welcome Sir Anthony Hopkins to the #transformers universe.”
The casting news comes hours after Bay announced Freya, an epileptic six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier that was last month dubbed Britain’s loneliest dog, will also appear in the fifth Transformers movie when it hits theatres in June, 2017.
The dog spent all its six years at an animal rescue centre in England, being turned down 18000 times for adoption and a recent article about the sad pooch in a British tabloid gave animal lover Bay the idea.
There is currently no information on what character Anthony Hopkins will play in the film, or whether he’ll play a human or a Transformer.
