If you aren’t sick of the Transformers movies yet, you may be able to star as an extra in Michael Bay’s new installment of the tired franchise. Transformers: The Last Knight is filming in metro Detroit for the summer and is looking for actors and actresses who are 16 and older.

 

Interested parties are asked to email transformers5extras@gmail.com with a headshot and personal details like height and contact information. Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins will headline the cast, but even these stars won’t be able to raise what is sure to an abysmal Rotten Tomatoes score.

 

The last Transformers film, Transformers: Age of Extinction, was filmed in Detroit as well. It was 2 hours and 45 minutes too long and received an 18% favorability rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It wasn’t Detroit’s fault.

 

But who really cares about ratings? What you really care about is the opportunity to point out your split second on screen when you pop in the Blu-ray on a whim at 2am. Filming starts on June 23 and continues through the following week, so now is your shot for Hollywood fame!

Don’t mention Michael Bay’s subpar filmmaking on set. Email transformers5extras@gmail.com and don’t forget to smile!

Green Book is Worth the Trip

An elite black pianist tours the segregated south with a white roughneck chauffeur. Green Book combines two crowd-pleasing formulas—the road movie and the true story—with two stellar lead actors, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.
