T.J. Miller Will Be the Only Possible Reason to Watch ‘Transformers 4’


The new Transformers movie just got a little more bearable. The Wrap reports that comedian T.J. Miller (She’s Out of My League, Yogi Bear) has joined the cast of Michael Bay’s latest robot thing, called Transformers 4 and starring Mark Wahlberg. Miller will be playing Wahlberg’s best friend, a mechanic who we presume will be a “wisecracking mechanic.” Miller is currently filming his first starring role in a movie, director Scot Armstrong’s Search Party, which finds him playing one of three leads alongside Adam Pally (Happy Endings) and Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign), and a pilot for Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley-set sitcom that he starred in was recently ordered to series by HBO. While both those projects sound like they have the potential to be legitimately good, neither one has him fighting giant robots or cost $200 million to make, but at least you can see the very funny T.J. Miller in that sort of thing at the movies next summer if you want to.
