Hopkins isn't the first Oscar winner to star in the franchise (Jon Voight was in 2007's "Transformers"). And it's unclear if he'll play a human character or voice a robot. A previous tweet about a new Cybertron addition could refer to him:
Cybertron's newest knight already has an armor of gold... #transformers

Fans have already been speculating that the tweet could mean the inclusion of Goldbug in the next movie.
Hopkins has been busy recently, filming HBO's big thriller "Westworld" and reprising his role as Odin in "Thor: Ragnarok." "Transformers: The Last Knight" is due to hit theaters June 23, 2017.
