For fans of Tyrese Gibson's character, a US Air Force Sergeant whose popularity rose tenfold for telling Captain Lennox that his wallet was on his "LEFT CHEEK! LEFT CHEEK! LEFT CHEEK!!!", good news coms straight from the man himself about the future of Tech Sgt. Robert Epps and the third Transformers Live Action film.

"Yes I will for sure be in Transformers 3.. Get Ready!! Epps is here to STAY!! "

That was Tyrese's statement on his own Twitter account - Tyrese4Real, letting followers and fans around the world know that he will be back for more Decepticon butt kicking action.

And with the previous report of Director Michael Bay limiting the number of robot characters, and focusing more on developing the individual bots storywise, we may get to see some more human/ robot interaction with Epps and the crew that some critics felt was lacking from the previous films.

Well that's good, he was one of the few likeable human characters in ROTF, hopefully pert three will just have him, Lennox, Sam, and(unfortunately) Mikayla as the only humans.

I would love to see Amaury Nolasco (with more refences to gator soup LMAO...I think the chemistry between him and Leo spitz (LOVE THAT NAME) would be great and make for some great human funny moments...not to mention crazy spanglish dialogue!

from :BOT: TF 2007

Captain Lennox: Fig, how many times must I tell you? None of us here speak Spanish! :shock:

Fig: Whats your problem, man? Tu siempre me estas jodiendo con la misma mierda!

I can't wait for a real TransFormers movie that actually has robots transform!! I love the way the TransFormers look now. But they rarely transform!!! And I hope Sam's twin isn't in it...I'm mean Leo. And enough with the human comedy!!!

The funniest part about ROTF...well sad really, was at the very end of the movie a little boy, like 7 years old walked out of the movie with his family. He had with him toys from the 2007 movie, Jazz, bumblbee and someone else. As they passed the trash can, his dad tossed one of the figures in the garbage. :lol: I'm sure it was from ROTF. :lol: :lol:

this is good news as far as im conscered.

i liked epps and was kinda hoping himself and lennox wouldve worked more with the bots.

i can see him and sideswipe making a good team and it'd make that human alliance set make sence.

one of the bits of interaction in revenge of the fallen that worked for me was ironhide and lennoxs casual friendship in the shanghai scene.

more of that would suit me.

I don't mind the humans It's just the I don't want them to have so much power and strength. I mean, i got really pissed off when devastator was killed WITH ONE SHOT. let the TF do something once in a while. I just want the humans to just be in the background shooting decepticons while not even harming them or something like that

I don't mind humans in the movies. I would rather they be military guys with big guns who actually stand a logical chance against the Decepticons, rather than some punk kid in college who goes to robot heaven to have the Primes tell him how awesome he is.

I guess I don't mind, he's never ruined anything, and added to the first film. Plus, I love that he takes pride in being in Transformers, you can tell at the awards and stuff the way he gets excited after the clips and everything.

Great!

Hope he gets a developed role; like someone else said, he's a really likable character. Epps and Lennox should have more interaction scenes with the Autobots (like Ratchet) and really build characters with both Human and Cybertronian (something that the first film nearly tried to do and something that the second failed almost completely to do).

Speaking of Ratchet; I want to see him do a full transformation for once!

Dude, all you ever do is flap your gums and shout about how much you hate stuff. Relax a bit okay? The world can't always go according to YOUR master plan. Some people really like it, respect them a bit would you? Please.

That is good news, I like Epps personality, plus the scene in ROTF,

Lennox: "THAT orange smoke?"

Epps: "Hey it wasn't my best toss okay?"

Lennox: "RUUUUUN!!!"

ROFL

Hopefully they get his rank straightened out, in ROTF he had the shoulder patches of a Chief Master Sergeant (E9) but all the other sites are saying he's a lower rank.....oh well just an observation :P
