No Surprise! Michael Bay Looking To Cast Hot Young Actors For ‘Transformers 4’
  |  @   |  

Readers probably wouldn’t be the least bit shocked to hear that Michael Bay is testing hot young actors for lead roles in Transformers 4. Megan Fox, Rachel Taylor, Isabel Lucas, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley all fit that mold that Bay was looking for, and he is using it once again, further proving that no ugly people ever take the lead in Bay’s film universe. However, unlike the Victoria Secret model or the virtual unknown he cast for previous Transformers films, Bay is looking for an actor who has actual talent or an actor who is related to someone who has some talent.

Isabelle Cornish and Nicola Peltz are testing for the female lead in the film. According to reports, the actress who gets the role will most likely play the daughter of Mark Wahlberg‘s character and be the love interest for the new male lead. If Cornish’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she is the younger sister of Abbie Cornish. Peltz is also well-known for her lead role in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender.

Luke Grimes, Hunter Parrish, Jack Reynor, and Brenton Thwaites are among the names listed as testees for the male lead. Grimes (Taken 2) and Parrish (Weeds) are two of the most recognizable faces being tested, but Reynor and Thwaites are the lesser known. Reynor had a role in What Richard Did, and Thwaites starred in the Home and Away as well as the TV remake of Blue Lagoon. Thwaites also tested for Need For Speed, but lost the role to Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul.

Indiewire says that the actors who get the role will most likely sign on for a three-picture deal. Filming is expected to begin in April for a July 4, 2014 release.
