At an event in Deauville, France, Tucci spoke of his upcoming commitments. Among them was the role of Joshua Joyce in Michael Bay’s Fifth installment of the live action Transformers saga.
I have pretty mixed feelings about this one. First and foremost, I think Stanley Tucci is a fantastic actor, but the direction they took with his character is the hype-killer here. Joshua Joyce, or JJ (side note: I think Tucci would make a great J. Jonah Jameson) starts off as being a real character that could exist in this world, but by the end of the film he descends into lunacy.
Well anyway, he’s back. Maybe he could steal milk from some random person’s rooftop again, that’d be pretty good. Or, since at least some of this movie is being shot in Scotland, he could steal someone’s mead and then have a sequence that’s much longer than it should be, about how good the stolen mead is.
There, I just wrote the joke for your third act, Michael Bay. You don’t even have to pay me.
