Pause for effect... pause for effect... pause for effect...

Agent Seymour Reginald "Reggie" Simmons is the head officer of Sector Seven's Field Agents. He is part of a long line of Simmonses who were head officers in Sector Seven. His great grandfather pulled N.B.E.-1, the first-discovered Transformer, out of the ice, and his grandfather and father prepared Sector Seven against the day that more N.B.E.s would arrive on Earth. He might come off as a jerk, but he takes this work very personally. After all, it's in his blood.

He's just a smidge off his nut — eccentric, weird, crazy, whatever you want to call it. He's strange, and he wears Hawaii underwear, Sector Seven undershirts, and clip on ties.

Yes, but he's, uh... you know, strange. He's a little strange.

Sector Seven ARG

Reggie Simmons and John Ho attended the original Star Wars premiere at Mann's Chinese Cinema.

Prime Directive prequel comics

In 2003, Simmons led a team of Sector 7 agents in an attempt to capture Bumblebee, then known as NBE-2. Prime Directive (IDW) issue 3 The attempt involved luring him into a trap using an artificial isotope derived from the sub-atomic matter of the cube, which put out an almost identical energy signature to that of the cube. After the team spent two days waiting in the New Mexico desert, Bumblebee appeared, followed by the Decepticons Barricade, Blackout, and Starscream. Thanks to the Decepticons, who destroyed several Apache helicopters and tried to hack into Sector 7's network, Simmons's plan to capture Bumblebee failed horribly. Prime Directive (IDW) issue 4

Transformers (2007 film)

Actor: John Turturro (English) Yūichi Nagashima (Japanese-language dub voice)
Sadly, Sector Seven's insurance does not cover "giant robots", because giant robots don't exist.

Agent Simmons went to the Witwicky residence when Sector Seven suspected that Sam Witwicky had contact with an N.B.E. they were tracking. Taking Sam and Mikaela Banes into custody, he got too into the bad cop role, threatening Sam with life imprisonment, threatening Mikaela's father's parole, and revealing Mikaela's own criminal record. This strategy nearly succeeded...until a seriously pissed off Optimus Prime decided to pay Sam and Mikaela's bail—by jumping right in front of their SUV, lifting it off the ground, and tearing the roof off. Although Simmons tried to call for calm, the Autobots easily disarmed the agents. To Simmons' credit, he himself remained calm, while the guy on the left looked like he was going to wet himself.

Prime attempted to interrogate Simmons, who revealed that the only communication he was authorized to have with the NBEs was to tell them he wasn't authorized to communicate with them. He also refused to answer any questions from Sam and Mikaela about Sector Seven or how they knew of the Autobots. Annoyed by his attitude, Bumblebee released lubricant on him. As the Autobots left, Mikaela had Simmons strip as punishment for threatening her father. However, Bumblebee, Sam, and Mikaela were later recaptured.

After arriving at Hoover Dam (and presumably the longest shower of his life), Agent Simmons, in a new, clean, and higher-in-authority uniform, and trying the awkward role of good cop, told Sam and Mikaela that they may have gotten off on the wrong foot. Taking them to see the Mega Man, Simmons was told of Megatron's plans by Sam. However, Frenzy had infiltrated the dam and sent a message to the Decepticons, causing Starscream to attack. Sam urged Simmons to release Bumblebee, saying he would help, but Simmons stubbornly refused. Captain Lennox decided to apply some armed persuasion, which Simmons still refused to heed, leading to a standoff between the rangers and Sector Seven agents. The rangers won. After Bumblebee reformatted the Cube, Simmons, Secretary Keller, Maggie Madsen, and Glen Whitmann went to the dam's archives, where they managed to send out an S.O.S. via an old radio in there, while Keller and Simmons provided cover fire from an attacking Frenzy. Transformers (film)

Revenge of the Fallen film

Simmons' fate following the termination of Sector Seven is revealed — working for his mother in a deli shop. He does not like the job one bit (and probably doesn't like working for his mother either). When Sam, Mikaela, and Leo arrived at the shop pleading for Simmons' help, he refused, blaming Sam for the loss of his job, until Sam informed him on the symbols he was seeing in his head. That was when Simmons led the three to a bunker below the shop to reveal all of the files he kept following the shut-down of Sector Seven. Simmons revealed that those same symbols have been marked not only all around the world, but for the last millennium. He showed several photographs. One of them is an old SR-71 Blackbird, which was when Wheelie revealed that it was in fact another transformer.

They went to the hangar to find it, after incapacitating a few guards and Simmons disguising himself as one, and used Sam's shard of the All Spark to reactivate it. Mikaela noticed the Decepticon symbol on it, and alerted the rest of the team, until the Blackbird revealed himself to be a grumpy, but non-hostile ex-Decepticon named Jetfire, who chose to switch sides years ago. Jetfire read the symbols Sam wrote down, and then teleported them to Egypt, where Jetfire revealed that the Matrix of Leadership is hidden within a tomb. Simmons, Sam, Mikaela, Leo and the Twins arrive at the nearest town (Narrowly avoiding the cops in the process), Simmons called in for Lennox to bring Optimus Prime's corpse to Egypt informing him that there is a chance to revive Optimus.

The group gets stopped at a checkpoint, but Simmons sweet talks his way out of it, claiming that Sam, Mikaela and Leo are his kids and that he's from New York. Luckily for him, the guard was a Yankee's fan. After spending the night in an abandoned building, and Sam discovered where the Tomb of the Primes is, Simmons went with them to find it and discovered the Matrix. However, when Sam picked it up, it turned into dust. While en route to meet up with Major Lennox, they are discovered and attacked by the Decepticon forces. Leo went into an emotional panic, annoying Simmons to the point of tasering him to shut him up. Simmons, in an effort to cover Sam and give him time to make it to Optimus, stayed. He, the Twins and Leo ended up facing Devastator. Simmons nearly got sucked into Devestator's turbine, but Leo saved him.

Devastator began digging it's way into the top of the Pyramid to uncover the Solar Harvester, until Simmons climbed the pyramid to set it up using a GPS device to get the coordinates once he was up there. He radioed for a rail gun strike from a nearby destroyer (Not before informing them of his location: right below Devastator's scrotum, of all places), which blasted Devastator to pieces, apparently killing him. Following the defeat of the Fallen and the destruction of the Solar Harvester, Simmons was praised by Major Lennox for his effort in saving the entire world.

Notes

  • According to the director's commentary on the Transformers DVD, Turturro based his performance as Simmons on Michael Bay.
  • In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: Offical Novelization, his name is in fact Seymour but not Reggie Simmons. Um, okay then!
  • Agent Simmons is nearly single-handedly responsible for the destruction of Devastator.
  • He keeps Frenzy's head and his "borrowed" files from Sector Seven in a room with a couple giant open windows on a ground floor (note the garden plants outside). Possible others will think those are just junk papers.
  • He states that he doesn't live with his momma, his momma lives with him.
  • He wears a thong. Eww...
  • What he keeps in the bunker below the meat locker is top-secret. Do not tell his mother.
