TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST NIGHT Adds Sir Anthony Hopkins, An Actual Knight

An actual dog also joins the cast.

Say what you want about Michael Bay, he manages to get a lot of highly respected actors in his Transformers films. Transformers 4 had Stanley Tucci. Transformers 3 had both Frances McDormand and John Malkovich. John Turturro’s running around almost all these films.

And now, according to the film’s Twitter account, Sir Anthony Hopkins has joined the cast of Transformers: The Last Knight, which is appropriate since he’s an actual knight. It’s unclear whether he’ll be onscreen as a human or just doing voiceover as a tea-drinking Transformer with a monocle or something:

But that’s not the film’s only new cast member! In an effort to remind people he’s not a monster, Michael Bay announced on Twitter that Freya, a six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier dubbed “Britain’s loneliest dog” by The Mirror, will join the cast as well. Freya has lived in captivity her whole life, and Bay is determined to get her adopted via Transformers fame. If that doesn’t work, he’ll just take her home himself:

Aw, how could you not love the guy after that?
