Transformers 2 certainly seems to be aiming for having as much comedy as it's predecessor, at least if the latest bit of casting news is any indication. Speaking to MTV during a sneak peak of his upcoming film The Rocker, Rainn Wilson confirmed that he would be appearing in Transformers 2. As what you may ask? Why, as "A professor that turns into a car that turns into a robot."

While Wilson was probably joking about that part of it, it can probably be safely assumed that Wilson will be a college professor, since the film is rumored to follow Sam (Shia LaBeouf) as he goes off to college. That said, Wilson remained coy, claiming to not even have read the script yet.
