VH1/MTV reveal that R2-D2 has popped up in yet another summer blockbuster outside of the Star Wars galaxy. This time, he's making a cameo in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

"The Force Is With Him "There's an R2-D2 flying around in there somewhere," revealed Scott Farrar, the film's visual-effects supervisor, who also worked on the "Star Wars" episodes "Return of the Jedi" and "The Phantom Menace."

Interestingly enough, George Lucas' charismatic droid also had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in "Star Trek," which shares the same writing team as "Transformers." Is it a coincidence?
