Looks like the Transformers franchise has snagged another big name star to feature in its universe and this time it’s none other than Sir Anthony Hopkins. The Oscar winning actor has officially joined Transformers: The Last Knight in an unspecified role.
Whether or not he’s joining the franchise in an on-screen role like Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer or just lending his voice like John Goodman, Hopkins involvement is a big coup. Director Michael Bay made the big announcement via Twitter:

But Hopkins isn’t the only one who made the news about joining Transformers: The Last Knight. Bay was also the talk of social media when he decided to give a lonely canine a part in the upcoming film as well…
