5 September 2016 1:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a trip to Deauville, France to attend his career tribute ceremony, Oscar-nominated actor Stanley Tucci revealed that he will be returning to the Transformers franchise for Michael Bay’s upcoming fifth installment, Transformers: The Last Knight.

In 2014’s much-maligned Transformers: Age of Extinction, Tucci played villain-turned-anti-hero Joshua Joyce.

The Performer | Connor Jessup

The Show | American Crime

The Episode | “Episode Seven” (Feb. 17, 2016)

The Performance | If you were to break down Wednesday’s episode of American Crime by lines of dialogue spoken, you’d likely find Jessup’s name somewhere near the bottom of that list.
