When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Wahlberg and Denzel Washington to talk about their new movie "2 Guns," the topic of Dinobots came up, and things got heated pretty quickly. "None of your business," Wahlberg said, responding to a question of whether he has encountered any Dinobots. "You don't want me to get replaced halfway through production for divulging secrets."The actor also popped up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote his film. He spoke about his four children, ages 3 to 9, who got to visit one of the TF4 sets.
So perhaps there is something to the rumor, considering how tight-lipped Wahlberg got at first mention of the Dinobots. Prodding further, Horowitz asked what the Dinobots are. "You know what it is," he said. "Don't question my geek. I can out geek you."
Moving onto non-Dinobot related "Transformers" talk, Wahlberg confirmed that the new installment feels unlike anything that has come before it, thanks in part to the character he has taken on. "It feels like a completely different movie, very fresh," he said. "Obviously, it's a really interesting dynamic, being a young, single dad having a teenage daughter, trying to succeed as an inventor, having very little means and also trying to provide for my family. Then all hell breaks loose."
“They [his kids] came to the set. They were in the new Optimus Prime. It was the first time they were actually excited about me being in a movie, and they actually want to be in the movie, so I had to ask Michael Bay. I’m like, “Dude, can you put my kids in the movie?” So he gave them an impromptu audition…they’re all going to be in the movie.”
Mark Wahlberg added, “They’re really excited. They’re going to come back…probably in Chicago. They’ll probably shoot in Chicago.”
