I'm not sure what a Rainn Wilson is or whether this robot was featured in the old Transformers cartoons, but from what people have told me, it looks like a real goofy guy with glasses. Yes, MTV Movies Blog reports that during a sneak screening of The Rocker, Rainn Wilson outed himself as a professor in the highly-anticipated sequel. Not just any professor, mind you -- but "a professor that turns into a car that turns into a robot." Of course, he's kidding about that. Right? Is he? Michael Bay is awesome!

The addition of Rainn Wilson and the fact they wanted to bring on Jonah Hill means Bay and Co. are definitely piling on the jokes for this second installment. That is unless they're looking to tone down Wilson's shtick; kinda how he played a regular old teacher in The Last Mimzy without throwing out lines like, "Gots to do your homework home-skillet." The film, which is supposed to start filming next month, is currently setting up camp in Bethlehem, PA, home to, well, people from Pennsylvania.

What do you think about Wilson joining the team? Transformers 2 is due out on June 26, 2009.
