Previously it was reported
that actor Josh Duhamel will make a Cameo Appearance on Transformers 4. However, things were very quiet and the actor finally gave
a solid answer:"Nope. I'm not in the next one."
With that tidbit, Tyrese Gibson’s Cameo Appearance
is also in question at the moment.

Zap2It has posted
an interview with the legendary duo; Peter Cullen and Frank Welker from the Grand Opening of Transformers: The Ride - 3D, Universal Orlando. If you missed our coverage, you can find it right here
Speaking to Zap2It, Mr. Cullen spoke a bit about Optimus Prime's redesign for the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers 4:"I'm always fascinated by the design changes because what could be more realistic than something that transforms and can change itself," Cullen told Zap2it. "And cars change every year. They come off the design tables and the clay models and before you know it you've got a brand new look to a car. I like it that way. I'm excited to find out what Mr. Bay is going to do for the next look. After all, he's always going to look like that [the Optimus Prime statue on Transformers: The Ride 3D]. He's always going to transform into something pretty close to that."
Meanwhile, Mr. Welker is waiting to see if he'll return for the 4th installment:"Yet to be determined," Welker admitted. "I'm not sure. I did the last two. I'm waiting to see and usually I don't know until the very end, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what Michael does. He always outdoes himself, so he's got big shoes to feel when he's got to fill his own shoes. It will be a lot of fun to see what he comes up with."
Peter Cullen also talked some emotionally powerful words about the Franchise:
