Leornard Nimoy has become the latest addition to the cast of the third Transformers installment. Nimoy will star as Sentinel Prime in the new film 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon', a character who is a mentor to Optimus Prime. The film marks another project for Nimoy who is keeping busy these days with recent projects such as the latest 'Star Trek' film. Nimoy has experience of this particular franchise after voicing Galvatron in a 1986 cartoon version of the story.
Empire has reported that director Michael Bay was original sceptical about asking Nimoy to play the part due to Nimoy's retired status. He is reported to have said “I was too scared to ask him,”. Luckily for the viewers however he plucked up the courage and the former Spock was only too glad to join in on the project. Nimoy is the latest in a line of big names that will feature in the third film including returning Shia LaBeouf and new faces such as John Malkovich. Nimoy will add experience to the cast and will help bring a cult following to the cinemas that may make up for the damage the last film did to the franchise. I'm personally looking forward to it.
