Theres a blurb over at superherohype about Bernie Macs role in the movie.
While interviewing Bernie Mac about his next film, the swimming drama Pride, the actor briefly talked about his role in Michael Bay's Transformers.
"I play a used car salesman, and all used car salesmen are full of sh*t – scuse my French – but they're con men," said Mac. "And they came to my set and I sold them the Transformer; I didn't know it was the Transformer, I thought it was a piece of junk. And the first thing you do as a salesman, a car salesman – I didn't know this, I did some investigating myself – they always sell you the 'bs' cars first. It's almost like a restaurant – get rid of the food, rotate it. When they come, I didn't know what the car exists of, and I just threw them a line; I'm a fast talker, quick whit guy. I got a chance to have some fun and Michael [Bay] – man, I've been fortunate, man, because every director allows Bernie Mac to do his thing. I have not been handcuffed since my career started from Ted Demme; every time a director, every time we'd do it straight, they always tell me, 'Now Bernie Mac it.' That's a luxury, you know."
