Fellow Seibertronian MaverickPrime has dropped by with a tidbit of news from the Paramount/Michael Bay Transformers: The Last Knight upcoming movie, which is bound to bring at least a smirk, especially to animal lovers. According to the director, UK's Loneliest Dog Freya, who suffers from epilepsy - as found in the news report you can see below - has landed a role in the new Transformers film, and will be rehomed when possible!

If nothing else, this is a very good PR move...

Found this in the news in England.

So we called and gave the Loneliest Dog a role in Transformers. We are going to make her famous. Freya, has Epilepsy and lived in a shelter her whole life. We are going to find her a home. If not she's coming to my house! #transformers #autobots #aspa

Say what you will about Bay, but he has a soft spot for animals that I absolutely respect. :x

I love dogs... and me and my wife know all about how it is living with epilepsy. My wife's is severe and uncontrolled by medication, so she can't work and requires a lot of extra support.

I'd bring her home with me in a heartbeat. Who could say no to that face?! She'd fit right in at home with us. :(

I'm not a big fan of that breed but it's always nice to see a dog get the love and treatment they deserve. Hopefully this will help her get a good home.

In a surprising - though we have seen high-calibre actors previously - turn of events for the live action Transformers movie franchise, the official Twitter account for The Last Knight has announced the participation of Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins in the fifth Michael Bay film featuring the Cybertronians! Check out the image and tweet below, as Hopkins is welcomed to the folds including Isabela Moner, Mark Wahlberg, and Josh Duhamel.


The man, the myth, the legend – help us welcome Sir Anthony Hopkins to the #transformers universe.

And the new logo for the film, which appears to be Optimus's head in a "V" which is a Roman numeral 5.

Is he gonna be actually in the film or just voice?
He's just done a film with Josh Duhamel so maybe they got to be friends and got him interested in doing a role?

Plot twist: They are connected, and this is actually a new Marmaduke film.

Oh...I get it. The "Last Knight" is actually Sir Anthony Hopkins voice or no ...Good show Mr. Bay Good show. #-o Whoever thought we'd get a knighted actor in a Transformers movie.

The dog thing I support, simply because I adore dogs and it's horrible to think she's been rejected that many times, honestly, I'd consider adopting that face.

BUT, OMG this reeks of PR material. I'm all for the dog, but splashing this up as news (not on this site, i mean in general), is such an obvious move to generate an "aww" factor that it stinks. Whatcha want to bet the "role" is equivalent to Bonecrusher's in ROTF, one funny scene and then out.

Anthony Hopkins is awesome, but I dread his role, human or Cybertronian or, hell, Creator (I could see him as a Judge Quintesson's voice).

It's Hugo Weaving, Leonard Nemoy, Ken Wantanabe all over again...Excitement over a spectacular actor, disappointment when they are subjected to a side role or not given the writing they deserve.

Please be Unicron, please be Unicron, please be Unicron...

I'll take Alpha Trion as a runner-up, but COME ON. Imagine Hopkins' voice doing a couple Orson Wells' lines. "This... cannot be... my... DESTINY!" :BOWDOWN:
