If Michael Bay is to be believed, then Oscar nominee John Malkovich and Oscar winner Frances McDormand will be Optimus Prime's newest co-stars.

Transformers 3
According to Bay's website, the two highly respected actors have been cast in "Transformers 3," along with "The Hangover's" Ken Jeong.

A new Autobot has been cast as well -- and will be played by the sick Ferrari 458 Italia.

Shooting starts next month.
