The Transformers film franchise has found its next leading man: Anthony Ramos!

The 29-year-old actor is reportedly in final negotiations to star in a Transformers movie for Paramount, eOne and Hasbro, Deadline reports. The film will be directed by Steven Caple Jr.

If don’t recognize Anthony’s face, you will in a couple of months! Anthony is the star of In the Heights, the upcoming movie musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda. Anthony plays the title role in the film, which has the following synopsis: “Lights up on Washington Heights…The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.”

The film will hit HBO Max and theaters on June 11.
