Tyrese Gibson
Rachel Cicurel: Were you surprised by the success of the first Tranformers film?

Tyrese Gibson: You know, we all had high expectations but we really didn't know because at the end of the day, being that most of us are realists, you can't assume because it was a successful cartoon or a successful toy that it was going to be able to make that crossover and become a successful film. But we all were hoping for the best. We had some early signs that the buzz and the energy was right on it but it didn't mean that people were going to show up and it didn't mean that it was going to perform as well as it did.
