Dunn Negotiating for Transformers 3

The Hollywood Reporter has posted that Kevin Dunn is "in negotiations to reprise his role as [Ron] Witwicky in the third "Transformers" film." Key word in this case is "negotiations" as it gives rise to the possibility that a return may not occur. Doubtful but strange things can happen when an issue of money is involved. Assuming it all works out, this indicates that the Witwicky parents will return for more hijinks.

In this case, the issue at hand may not even be about money but scheduling conflicts as Kevin Dunn recently signed on to join the new HBO's new drama "Luck" starring Dustin Hoffman. It should be noted that when it comes to sequels, while most actors sign up for the typical three movies, re-negotiating the contract is common. Thanks to Christopher for the link.


  1. i really hope he´s coming back for the third movie. the father was always the most likeable person in this whole movie.

  2. No production issues of any kind, please. Not another time... Transformers3 must not suffer any production issues like Transformers2 unfortunately did.

  3. Well, if they have Sam's Parents in the 3rd Movie again, then he should be playing his Role as before.
    I liked bothe Movies(while I still want to see, where Barricade went; havng both Movies in the Steelbook-Edition).
    As for Sam Witwicky's Dad, I can't think of someone else playing that role.

  4. i can see how this is a problem because the big star like labeouf is getting 5 mil for TF2 im sure kevin only got a small amount for his role in both movies and now wants more cuz he is a good, funny actor

  5. I also hope he stays as Sam's dad, he's great!! Nobody can replace him as Sam's dad. If they can't work it out, then the dad should stay away and not be played by someone else. But something says to me he will reprise his roll, I don't think he's that egotistic. I always remember his part in Seinfeld :)

    I'm with you BetaSword, Barricade has to come back in TF3! He's awesome: Are you Ladiesman 217??!! Give me the glasses!!
