More From Mark Wahlberg On His Role In TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION

Speaking in detail about the back story of 'Cade Yeager', Mark Wahlberg also discusses his reasons for joining the cast of Michael Bay's fourth Transformers movie as well as opening up about an injury he suffered on set. Hit the jump for his comments in full!

Mark Whalberg stars as Cade Yeager, in the next Transformers installment. It was revealed that the loss of his wife plays a factor in why he doesn't want his daughter dating. He goes more into detail and explains the backstory about it.

"With Transformers: Age of Extinction, did you agree to do that one for your kids?"

"Well, it was exciting because it was the first time my kids were really interested in a movie I was doing. Any time they see me with a gun, like Contraband or Pain & Gain, they want to see that, too, but they can’t because of the language and all that stuff. But I loved working with Michael Bay, and I thought he had a really interesting way to make it new, different, and fresh. Plus, being in movies that have the potential to be hugely successful allows me to make smaller movies that I’m really passionate about."

"What’s going to make this Transformers different? The first one was OK, but then the sequels were a total mess."

"It was a tighter script, and its own stand-alone thing. I think the emotional core of it, the human element, is going to be extremely powerful. It’s an ordinary man trying to do extraordinary things to save his daughter and keep her alive—and this boyfriend he didn't know anything about. He’d had a child when he was in high school and his wife passed away, and the promise he’d made to her was that she wouldn't date any boys until she graduated and that she’d be at the graduation; because we weren't due to the pregnancy. So there’s an anchor to it and a realness to it that I like a lot."

He goes on to say that during a shooting, he hurt his neck.

"I hurt my neck in Hong Kong, and it hasn’t gotten better yet. I just woke up in the morning and couldn't move, but still had to shoot 10 days of crazy action."

What do you think?

I will pimp myself out in a movie made for children, the mentally retarded, and weak-minded adults.

It will make a billion bux and this trash will continue.

It took The Rock & Bruce Willis to improve GI JOE ( still want Scarlett actress back ) & now it takes Wahlberg to improve TRANSFORMERS.

Mark has a tougher job,these movies are pure garbage. Wait & see bout this new one.

You know that Wahlberg's probably hired someone to find you. He won't get violent. He's just going to make you listen to him perform the acoustic version of "Good Vibrations" for three straight hours.

Ahh the human element, just what an old school 80's Transformers fan like myself has been craving.

Fcuk you Bay!

LastAvenger99 - 12/25/2013, 7:27 PM
well you know since it takes place on earth and not mars i would think you would see a human in their somewhere.
Leadpoison - 12/25/2013, 8:38 PM
Right on, Danbojohnj.

I just hope to stay alive long enough for a director to make a Transformers movie that can make the central characters y'know... !#%$ing Transformers.

People honestly need to shut up about not enough Transformer screen time. The amount of screen time they had increased excessively over the course of the trilogy, and I have no doubts they will appear in this film like they did in Transformers 3 or even more so. Do you people not understand it is incredibly expensive to animate everyone's favorite robots in disguise into reality and make it look believable? G1 whores, just shut up and stop with the complaining. I'm sure NO ONE would mind if you all left the live-action films to flourish in their own success instead of making bastardization claims.
