In a previous report here at Seibertron.com, we informed you that Jon Voight, who played Secretary of Defense Keller in Transformers the Movie, had stated that he will not be returning for the sequel to the film.

MTV Movie Blogs sat down with the actor recently and caught Mr. Voight pushing for a cameo:

“I should be able to make a cameo,” Voight said. “That’s a good idea. Let’s talk to those guys about that.”

Mr. Voight then went on to tell MTV Movie Blogs that making Transformers was a lot of fun and that Director Michael Bay did a brilliant job. But as far as a return, it wouldn't come without benefit to the character Voight played:

“It all depends on the plot, of course,” he said, “and what the plot needs, you know. But the Secretary of Defense, we want to know what happens to him. Was there a new administration that came in? Maybe he ran for president. Maybe he became president.”

Jon Voight as President in the movie? Better yet, a Secretary of Defense running for office and winning? Well, anything's possible.

Transformers Movie director Michael Bay has updated his website's news blog with a brief comment on the filming of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Egypt and on Universal's anticipatory Transformers: The Ride, to be completed in 2011.

The director seems less than thrilled. Read his message on his site by clicking here.

The shooting in the the Middle East is ground breaking - an awesome time had by all the crew.

The Transformer Ride at Universal making all the press rounds - not sure yet - they had me in a press release saying I supported it - but Universal has a long way to go in my mind. I don't support it - I'm not involved and not sure the story of the ride works, and I know Optimus is not going to just show up to be directed by some new people that have never worked with him. I hate when people bullshit a quote from me that I never said.

I'll keep you informed. Maybe the guy making the rides at Universal will direct Transformers 3????

We gave you the heads up on Friday, and now here it is. HASBRO, Inc. (HAS NYSE) has reported its 3rd quarter earnings this morning via webcast.

Heres the scoop:
Highlights
-- Net revenues of $1.3 billion for the quarter, an increase of $78.9 million or 6% from a year ago, or an increase of 5% absent the impact of foreign exchange;
-- Net earnings of $138.2 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, compared to $132.0 million or $0.78 per diluted share excluding the impact of a favorable tax adjustment of $29.6 million or $0.17 per diluted share in 2007;
-- U.S. and Canada segment net revenues up 6% for the quarter and International segment net revenues up 9% for the quarter, or 4% excluding the impact of foreign exchange;
-- Boys, Girls, Preschool and Games up globally compared to a year ago, with growth driven by strong performances from STAR WARS, PLAYSKOOL, FURREAL FRIENDS, LITTLEST PET SHOP, NERF, BABY ALIVE, and in both board and trading card games;
-- Balance sheet remains strong, with operating cash flow of $579.0 million over the last 12 months.


"We are very pleased with our third quarter and year-to-date performance," said Brian Goldner, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In a challenging environment, we delivered both revenue and earnings growth. As we look to the remainder of the year, we are well positioned with the richest and most diversified portfolio of brands in the industry."

The actual duration of the webcast was an hour long. In the webcast we do get to hear a positive introduction to the report by CEO Brian Goldner, who also told us that he's seen raw footage of Tranformers: Revenge of the Fallen and is very pleased. He also stated that the Transformers brand continues to be a strong point in the company despite this being an "non movie year" and that the Transformers Animated line has really pushed the brand.

Unfortunately the company has been affected by the recent economic stresses on the global market with profits down nearly 15% from last year. This was expected by the company as increases in costs for production and in costs of discretionary spending went up during the quarter. Key market brands by HASBRO are still going strong with high gains occuring in the board game department. It was stated by Mr. Goldner that this is because more families are electing to stay home instead of going out for whatever reason.

The webcast ended with some in depth Q&A from investors to Mr. Goldner and David Hargreaves, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Investors and future investors would do well to listen to that portion.

At the time of posting, HASBRO shares were $27.80, or down $2.72 (7.76%).

MTV Movie Blogs has posted an interview with Transformers star Amaury Nolasco. In the interview, the actor states that he will not be able to appear in Revenge of the Fallen, but that his character, Fig, is still alive.

“I didn’t die,” the actor revealed to us this week when we asked about his character, ACWO Jorge “Fig” Figueroa.

And get this: His character is not only still alive, but Nolasco told us that the high-profile director of the “Transformers” series wanted to bring him back for an awesome re-emergence in the recently-wrapped sequel. “No [I’m not in ‘Revenge of the Fallen’], I wish I could say yes,” he explained. “I was shooting ‘Prison Break’ at the time so it was conflictive, the dates. Even though, I was asked to. Michael Bay called me and said, “You know what? You’re in Transformers 2’!” and I go, ‘I want to do it,’ but I wasn’t able.”


The interview then goes on to state that "Fig" could make a comeback in coming sequels the 2007 blockbuster movie. Great news for Fig fans and crocodile eaters.
