* Creator/AnthonyAnderson as Glen Whitman in the 2007 ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers movie]]'', to the extent that when Epps compares claw slashes in a steel wall to [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]], Glen jumps in and geeks out by insisting that it was ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, his reasoning being there were three claw marks (Wolverine has three claws on each hand) and Freddy Krueger has four claws. After a {{beat}}, [[BunnyEarsLawyer Simmons]] claims this outburst to be "very funny". Despite his nerdiness, the novelization has him end up with Maggie.
