John Malkovich and Frances McDormand are officially more than meet the eye.

The highly decorated actors are joining Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox for the third Transformers installment, according to director Michael Bay's blog.

"Transformers 3 has been going very well," he writes. "We are going to shoot in L.A., Chicago, Washington, D.C., Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow and China. On the talent front, we just locked in Frances McDormand and John Malkovich. Both amazing actors I've always wanted to work with. We also just got Ken Jeong—he is the superfunny actor stuck in the trunk from Hangover and the Doctor from Knocked Up."

McDormand is set to reign as the National Intelligence Director, while Malkovich will be attempting to rein in Shia as his first boss, according to

Bay announced another cast addition last week and she's so gorgeous, she may even take some male attention away from the Fox. She's an autobot played by the Ferrari 458 Italia, after all.
