Rainn Wilson Discusses Role in Transfomers: Revenge of the Fallen

Ain’t It Cool News have interviewed Rainn Wilson, who has a small role in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and have talked about his work in the sequel, Micheal Bay’s directing style and some of Rainn’s other projects.

Quint: But yeah, I think that the character economy, how they would put it in screenwriting class, was handled very well. So what are you working on now? You have some stuff coming up?

Rainn Wilson: Well, I just did a very small cameo in TRANSFORMERS 2.

Quint: Cool.

Rainn Wilson: That was kind of a blast. I got to work with Michael Bay and I was a big fan of TRANSFORMERS.

Quint: I spent a few days on the set of the first movie and something I noticed was that Michael Bay, I think he has an AD, but he doesn’t need one.

Rainn Wilson: He does everything himself.

Quint: He does everything and he’s not afraid to be the task master on a set.

Rainn Wilson: I saw him and he was literally giving the focus puller notes. The focus puller was like “No, you have to do it like this…” and Michael Bay is like “No no no, do it like this and hook this here and you can turn this here and you can get the focus this way…” Somehow I believed Michael Bay knew more than the focus puller. He even ran camera a couple of times. He did his own camera work.

Quint: Yeah?

Rainn Wilson: Yeah.

Quint: That must have been fun. I don’t imagine that you are in any scenes with any robots, but it would still be fun.

Rainn Wilson: No, I wish I would have had scenes with explosions, but yeah the only other thing is I have a bunch of film irons in the fire out there. I just handed in, last week, the second draft of this film BONZAI SHADOW HANDS to Jason Reitman and that is the script I’m writing myself to star in where I play a down and out alcoholic ninja.

Russell on set in video form

Rainn Wilson has now appeared in some videos, as well as the Saturn Astra, and the Camera Go Kart filming all the action. The Astra still has the hole in the windscreen, first shown in the Frenzy-like-bot videos from yesterday.

The other videos show some more of Shia LaBoeuf walking around on the campus.

Rainn Wilson On Set Pictures

Photos taken today have shown actor Rainn Wilson, who plays the professor in Sam’s Astronomy class, on the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen set. Transformers Lice Action Blog have also received a report of the scene, confirming Shia’s involvement.

Dark Horizons have also had an interview with Wilson, briefly taking about his role and working with Michael Bay.

Question: You haven’t signed up for anything else for your next hiatus, have you?

Wilson: No. I mean, this hiatus, there really was nothing shooting, because there’s this potential SAG strike happening. So there are not really any movies happening right now. But I have The Rocker to promote and I’m doing a couple days on The Transformers II.

Question: Oh, really? As whom?

Wilson: As a robot. No. As a professor. But maybe he’s a robot. Maybe I’ll just pretend he’s a robot, or I’ll play him as a robot.

Question: Have you ever worked with Michael Bay before?

Wilson: I have not worked with Michael Bay before. And I think that is a hilarious, hysterical match-up. Is Rainn Wilson and Michael Bay. It’s like – I was at the MTV Awards last night, and Paris Hilton and their boyfriend wanted their pictures taken with me. And I – as the camera clicked, I said, “This one is for the ages.” I love the idea of Rainn Wilson and Paris Hilton, together at last.

In an interview with MTV, Rainn Wilson, who stars in the American version of The Office, confirmed that he is to join the cast of Transformers 2.

It isn’t clear who he will be playing, but our best guess is that it is either a human or a robot.
