In what has to be the ‘wut!?’ story of the week, Sir Anthony Hopkins has joined the cast to Transformer: The Last Knight.

Now there is literally nothing known about who he’ll play, though at the minute we have to say the dafe bet is on him voicing on of the Autobots or Decepticons.

Hopkins is of course probably best known for playing Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs but recently made a big splash in the nerd sphere by playing Thor’s father, Odin, in the MCU.

Although, in fairness, the Transformers movies are no strangers to talent (being wasted) with the likes of Stanley Tucci,Kelsey Grammar and Jon Voight all having turned in performances with the robots in disguise.

The announcement tweet is below and below that is another tweet that some are speculating might be related to his casting… could he play Goldbug? Who knows.

Let us hear your thoughts in all the usual ways guys.

Oh and, in a totally bizarre Tweet, it seems the world’s loneliest dog will be part of the movie too. No, we have no idea either.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
