From pencil pusher to robot slayer?

The Office’s Rainn Wilson has signed on to star in Transformers 2, the NBC funnyman told MTV News.

The sequel – which begins filming this summer – is slated for a 2009 release. Shia LeBeouf, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel will all reprise their roles.

Wilson will have a small part as a college professor. He jokingly added, “A professor that turns into a robot that turns into a car.”

Now that’s more than meets the eye!
