Reece was originally the pilot of the MH-53 Pave Low helicopter #0367, one of the two helicopters used as Blackout's alternate mode. Director Michael Bay "discovered" him whilst in a conversation on set at Holloman Air Force Base, and both Bay and Steven Spielberg agreed that Reece looked exactly like what they had pictured for Mustache Man.
As a result, Reece had to change his wedding and honeymoon schedules so that he could film all of Mustache Man's scenes for the Transformers movie.
He's a heck of a guy.
