Mark Wahlberg says Michael Bay is key to his Transformers future

The 79-year-old actor was delighted to be cast in "Transformers: The Last Knight" as Sir Edmund Burton alongside the likes of Mark Walhberg, 46, and Josh Duhamel, 44, because he doesn't get normally get considered for lighter roles.

Speaking to Collider, Mark explained: "I am [contracted for more] but look, I signed on to make these movies with Michael. Anytime anywhere just let me know".

He shared: "It's like I've been working every day for two years, every single day, because I want to make up for the second one and I want to leave this franchise as best I can. The genius thing is he was so sweet and (my daughter) is like steamrolling me all the time and he's seeing it, like she's being rude to me and she's being mean to me and she's like if you're not nice to him, he may not wanna be around you", Wahlberg said. Regardless of how much sarcasm I level at it I'll probably still go see it anyway, as I'm a sucker for grand special effects and true 3D, and Transformers: The Last Knight has both in spades.

"But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else".
