Time to bring in the big guns … that are also sometimes wheels that are also maybe arms. According to The Wrap, NBC sitcom star Jerrod Carmichael is currently in talks to join Michael Bay’s Transformers 5. The Carmichael Show star would join Mark Wahlberg and Nickelodeon actress Isabela Moner in the sequel, which is slated for released in June 2017. No word on what role Jerrod Carmichael will play, though if you think “thoughtful, self-reflective alien car-man,” he is, of course, the first actor that comes to mind.
