Michael Bay has confirmed on his message board that The Twins, Mudflap and Skids, from Revenge of the Fallen will not be perpetuating racial stereotypes in Transformers 3. In Hollywood that’s what we call getting Jar Jar Binx’ed. It’s Bay’s goal to make the next Transformers installment relatively inoffensive, but take this with a grain of salt as Tyrese and Josh Duhamel still have scenes opposite one another.
There’s no telling what’s next for The Twins. They’ve got all the right skillz for a dance flick or a rap career, they just need someone to take a chance on them. My instincts say they’ll be relegated to the scrap pile though like so many other influential characters of the past.
I’m still eagerly awaiting the next Max Headroom project that I fear may never come. (IESB)
