Potential Actors for Transformers 4 Leads

The Hollywood Reporter has posted that Michael Bay has begun testing various Hollywood young actors for the role of Mark Wahlberg's daughter and her race car driver boyfriend leads for Transformers 4. Basically Bay is going for virtual unknowns that have some acting experience but the average movie goer probably would not recognize (pretty much like how he cast the previous three films).

For the female role Isabelle Cornish (Australia's Home and Away), Nicola Peltz (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Margaret Qualley, and Gabriella Wilde (Carrie, Three Muskateers) are currently testing.

For the boyfriend its Luke Grimes (Brothers & Sisters, Taken 2), Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova), Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon), Jack Reynor (beats me) and Hunter Parrish (Weeds).

This group is likely to change as this is just some of the many actors Bay is likely checking out. Of this small group I am partial to Nicola Peltz due to potential shown in Avatar and she has green screen experience the others don't really have. Based on the pic of her with Mark at last year's season premiere of Boardwalk Empire, they look like could easily sell being father and daughter. Considering every TF film had a long haired blonde personally selected by Bay, Gabriella probably has a leg up here. On the male side Jack Reynor pops the most for me. Any case probably be a few months before anything official is announced.

  4. I hope they spend more money on the Autobots and less on the military. If military is Bay's thing then he should be directing GI Joe.

  5. Nicola Peltz was awful as Katara in Avatar. It may be that I actually know the real show an actually understood the cartoon character... but she would not be my first choice.

    1. Although I do have to say, if she can pull a turn around and act this well, she would be my preferred choice by looks compared to the others.

    2. The Last Airbender was a very good movie. Unfortunately trimmed down by studios managers with more than 30 minutes finished footage cut and never released.
      All the bashing nonsense against that movie it's just the lack of taste people have nowadays so full on drugs can't judge anything properly.
      And the actress was more than good. She would be the best one for the role out of the current rumored names.

    3. I disagree with you on some points. I'm not bashing it because of lack of taste. I didn't like The Last Airbender because it didn't portray "Avatar" and was rather a quick Paramount/Nickelodeon cash grabbing machine. If you've ever seen the show, you'd see just how far they deviated from the original story. I felt Nicola Peltz did not capture the way Katara was supposed to be played (as well as the entire cast, perhaps with the exception of the actress who played Yue). I could go on, but it would be pointless. HOWEVER, if you caught my comment after my original one, I said she'd be the best pick of the current group.
      P.S. I don't do drugs.

  6. All but two of the girls seem like typical Michael Bay material. Thin, blonde, and have strange skin colors in pictures.

  7. The spider man franchise reboots and brings in the likes of Andrew Garfield, Emmas Stone, Shailene woodley, Jamie Foxx, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Rhys Ifans and Dennis Leary. Xmen reboots and brings in James Mcavoy, Micheal Fassbender, Jeniffer Lawrence, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt and Rose Byrne.
    We were told transformers was "going in a new, fresh direction" but it seams like we're going to get more of the "young couple who get caught up in the transformers war" which was fine for the 1st trilogy but I was hoping the new movie would have a completely different feel.
    I was hoping the human cast would be made up of better, adult actors playing roles that are at best complimentary to the transformers themselves.
    I guess I shouldn't get down so early in the process but I actually lost some faith when Ehren Kruger was rehired...I was hoping for a new writer and quite honestly a more accomlished writer; Kruger's resume beyond ROTF, DOTM and the Ring is full a flaming piles of crap.

    1. The Amazing Spider-Man reboot is atrocious. An absolutely awful production. And it's a real shame that Sony managers behind that fraud of a movie managed to make a fool of too many people. They got rich selling a very bad product they put zero effort into.
      It's just plain sad to see people drinking studios marketing machine kool aids with their lies.
      These managers think to be so smart now with all the money they got out of that shameful thing. They laugh at how many sheep are out there making them richer and richer.

      It's plain sad that there are so many people like you, who don't love movies. You have no idea what movie making is about and how they are made!

      The internet, the whining, the whining...... jeez ff-ing christ, you think you all now better, so sad. Get a life.

  8. - Indiana Evans (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening / H2O: Just Add Water)
    - Phoebe Tonkin (Tomorrow, When the War Began / The Secret Circle / H2O: Just Add Water)

    Would be even better female lead options.
    Why didn't Michael Bay even considered them at all?

    1. - Britt Robertson (The Secret Circle / Swingtown)
      - Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf / Skyline)

      Would be two other very good options for the role.

    1. Ultra Magnus, yes. Kup? Probably not with Michael Bay's hands on him... He would just destroy the character.

  10. Maybe Alexa Vega? She's done action before (although technically those were kid's movies) and she's proven she can act with films like Broken Hill. Plus most people have seen her but don't know who she is, so it'd keep that "fresh" feel.
