Hugo Weaving still hasn’t seen Transformers

This barely qualifies as “news” but I found the following quotes from Hugo Weaving‘s interview with The Age to be quite amusing.

Weaving is currently on the promotional circuit talking up his latest picture The Wolfman. When asked about whether or not he will return to voice Megatron in the third Transformers film, he responded, laughing:

“Oh no, they’re not making Transformers III, are they?”

When asked about his involvement in the first two Transformers films, Weaving confirmed that his emotional investment in the series was minimal.

“[Director] Michael Bay talks to me on the phone. I’ve never met him. We were doing the voice for the second one and I still hadn’t seen the first one. I still didn’t really know who the characters were and I didn’t know what anything was. It’s a voice job, for sure, and people assume I’ve spent my life working on it, but I really know so little about it,” he said.

I do love an honest actor, but if we had to sit through Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, then he sure as hell should have to!

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will compete for Worst Film at the 30th Annual Razzie Awards to be held on March 6th.

However, it should be stated that Weaving is a great actor, and he does still star in great films. Check out his work in the 2009 flick Last Ride and the rest of his impressive back catalogue here.

Discuss: Oh my. Imagine what Weaving thought of The Wolfman?!

  1. I find that truly hilarious. Good on him for being honest. He's one of only a few out there, it seems.
