With Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen tearing up the box office, a third film seems more than likely, and we might see more of one of the film's new human characters. The Los Angeles Times recently spoke with actor Ramon Rodriguez, who plays Leo Spitz, and director Michael Bay, who revealed that we should see more of his character in the next film.

Director Michael Bay has a third "Transformers" film in mind, and if it plays out as he expects, the next installment would have a more substantial role for Rodriguez. The filmmaker, speaking at his office a few weeks before "Revenge of the Fallen" was released, seemed to have some pride of discovery when talking about Rodriguez.

"I've worked with big stars, people like Will Smith, Sean Connery and Bruce Willis, but casting is a weird thing, it takes you places you don't expect," Bay said. "We went looking for a sidekick in this movie, Shia's sidekick, and we find this new kid who really pops on screen. I think he's going to have a real bright career. It's great to work with big stars, but it's always fun to discover people."
