For awhile now we have known Tyrese Gibson will be in the Transformers Movie. Now thanks to MTV.com we now know for certain he will be playing the part of Epps. Here is what MTV.com reported:

"Tyrese Gibson has been an actor, singer and model, so it's no surprise that he's hard at work on a film that offers fans more than meets the eye. "I grew up on 'Transformers,' " he said of the 1980s cartoon that is currently being made into a big-budget action flick. "It's a $200 million budget, and they are having a good time out there," Gibson reported, stepping away briefly from the New Mexico Air Force base that has been his home for three weeks of filming. "We are doing it up. It's going to be special." Still marveling over the vehicles he has seen, the actor said he couldn't divulge any details about the classic Transformers (Optimus Prime, Megatron, etc.) or the new additions that will appear in the November 2007 movie. "The film is top-secret. They've got me on a straight tight lip on this one. But the director, Michael Bay, is doing an incredible job. [Producer Steven] Spielberg pops his head around the set all the time. It's been crazy, man; it's a dream package for me. I love all the characters." When asked for any kind of "Transformers: The Movie" script details, Gibson could only shrug and offer up the little that he is allowed to say: "My character's name is Epps." ..."
