So how do you want to go? 
Peacefully, surrounded by my family.

Now give us the Michael Bay–directed, high-octane, explosion-packed version. 
Saving the world by driving a purple Lamborghini off a skyscraper into an alien spaceship.

Do you have any deathbed confessions?
I watch reality TV.

Do you think that’s enough to send you to hell, or will you be going to heaven?
Hopefully, I will have lived long enough to atone for my sins as a teenager and make it to heaven.

If you could take one Transformer with you, which would you take and why?
Optimus would be a great wingman.

You’re an avid golfer. If you make it to heaven, who would you most like to tee it up with in the afterlife?
My dad. Pretty sure Jesus has a low handicap, and I’m competitive.

How would the Entourage crew fare in a Decepticon attack?
Drama would make them laugh long enough for everyone to escape. “Victory!!!!”

What about your furry pal Ted?
He’d insult them until they gave up.

What did you spend the most money on during your lifetime?
The house I built for my family.

Name one thing you’re glad you’ll never have to do again on Earth.
Drop my pants.

What’s the wildest thing you ever did while you were alive?
What happens on Ibiza stays on Ibiza.

Do you spend your last day in Boston, New York, or L.A., and why? And how are you spending it?
At Wahlburgers in Boston, hanging out with my family and friends.

If you could come back and spy on someone who’s still alive, who would it be and why?
Being the youngest of nine, I’d love to pull some pranks on my siblings.

What is your proudest accomplishment?
That I’ve turned my life around.

What is your biggest regret?
That I needed to turn it around.

Was there anyone on Earth you wanted to punch in the face?
No comment.

Got any last words?
Put in the work and anything is possible.
