Mark Wahlberg has reprised his role in the Transformers film [Wenn]
But while Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel have reprised their roles in the Michael Bay flicks, there is one star who is notably absent.
Tyrese Gibson, who starred as Robert Epps in the first three movies, did not return to film the latest one.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, the 38 year old opened up about why he was “p****d” to have missed the opportunity.

“I’m not in the next one,” he explained. “So the truth is when we were shooting Fast 8, I closed my deal for Transformers 5, and I was supposed to go from Fast 8 to T5.
“But because they shot a lot of the movie in Europe, my schedule didn’t allow for me to go from Atlanta to London in between those days.
“I mean, I was p****d. The goal was for me and Josh Duhamel to come back and surprise the fans, that two of the guys from the original Transformers were back. Josh Duhamel was available and I wasn’t. So I was p****d.”

The dad of one admitted he was mostly disappointed because he’s such a huge fan of the robots franchise.
He continued: “I got a Transformers tattoo and I just got two robots in my damn house. So that last thing I wanted was to be as big a fan of the franchise as I am, and not be in the movie.
“Unfortunately I won’t be in T5, but Michael is already talking to me about T6 and T7 so we’ll see what happens. I hope I get back in there, and I hope we’re able to schedule it where I’m able to both simultaneously.

“It’s all good problems to have!”
Tyrese, who recently unveiled his first holiday company, Voltron Travel, has a lot to smile about, after he recently revealed he had married girlfriend Samantha.
Taking to Instagram, the Fast and Furious star confirmed the news with a sweet video for his 8.7million followers.

“The best way to express your love toward this blessed union is to keep us covered in prayer.”
