Tyrese Gibson Confirms Fifth “Transformers” Role

Following rumors for weeks now, Tyrese Gibson has confirmed that he will reprise his role as Robert Epps in Michael Bay’s “Transformers: The Last Knight” at Paramount Pictures.

Gibson revealed the news himself while discussing his upcoming projects at the BET Awards last night, telling Entertainment Tonight: “Let’s just say 2017, summertime, it’s going to be a lot of energy out there in the universe: Fast 8, Transformers 5… I’m here to take advantage of my America.”

Gibson is currently filming “Fast 8” under the helm of F. Gary Gray and had previously indicated on social media a desire to return to the franchise like his co-star Josh Duhamel – the only other returning player from the original trilogy.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” is currently in production ahead of a June 23rd 2017 release.
