Amaury Nolasco Says His ‘Transformers’ Character Is Alive, Could Return In ‘Transformers 3′

Additional reporting by Elena Torres

You might remember “Prison Break” star Amaury Nolasco from “Transformers” as one of the military men who run into a bloody desert skirmish with the Skorponok, alongside Josh Duhamel and Tyrese. But did he die? And, could he come back for future “Transformers” films?

According to the star of next week’s “Max Payne,” the answer is no. And yes.

“I didn’t die,” the burly, Puerto Rican actor revealed to us this week when we asked about his character, ACWO Jorge “Fig” Figueroa.

And get this: His character is not only still alive, but Nolasco told us that the high-profile director of the “Transformers” series wanted to bring him back for an awesome re-emergence in the recently-wrapped sequel. “No [I’m not in ‘Revenge of the Fallen’], I wish I could say yes,” he explained. “I was shooting ‘Prison Break’ at the time so it was conflictive, the dates. Even though, I was asked to. Michael Bay called me and said, “You know what? You’re in Transformers 2’!” and I go, ‘I want to do it,’ but I wasn’t able.”

Still, Nolasco knows that Bay and producer Steven Spielberg have plans to make more “Transformers” sequels, and they’ve left the door open for “Fig” to rejoin the party.

“Yeah it would [be fun],” Nolasco insisted. “So who knows? Maybe ‘Transformers III’.”

Are you excited about this summer’s “Transformers” sequel? Do you want a third film as well, or is it time to let the Autobots ride off into the sunset?
