Rain Willson is friggin awesome on The Office and today from MTV comes word that he has been cast as A professor in Transformers 2. Big news for us fans! He will join Matthew Marsden, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro in Michael Bay’s Transformers 2.

Transformer 2 will be released into theatres June 26th 2009 giving them plenty of time to complete the script which Michael Bay had a part in writing. Now you will likely kick my ass for saying this but as much as I loved the Transformers growing up the movie did not at all live up to my expectations. I liked the movie but I was expecting so much more from it…. so the movie was good but not great for me. Your thoughts? Hit the comments!
