Our fave Angela Bassett is on the promo trail for her new movie Bumblebee that's set to hit theaters on December 21st.
After hitting up the global premiere of the movie in Hollywood, the 60-year-old Hollywood vet made her way to "The Talk" to dish on her role in the Transformers film. Come to find out, Angela is playing the FIRST female robot in the Transformers franchise! She's playing villainous character named Shatter and it sounds like she had some fun acting on the dark side.
"I was really intrigued by it because this is the first time that a woman has played one of the robots in the entire franchise, movie, number six," the Oscar nominated actress told the co-hosts. "Shatter and Drop Kick, her sidekick... he does his own thing. She needs to keep him place. She's the brains of the operation, and they're trying to find out where Bumblebee is and extract some information from him about where the Autobots are. I had a great time playing this villain of sorts."
Ugh. She's SO GORGE!
