The name Jack Reynor likely doesn't sound familiar now, but you should be well-acquainted by the time "Transformers 4" is released.
Michael Bay revealed on his website Tuesday that he's tapped Reynor to star alongside Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming "Transformers" installment.
"[H]e is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket," Bay wrote of Reynor. "Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie 'What Richard Did.' This kid is the real deal."
Bay's latest go-round with the action franchise is slated to arrive in 2014, and the filmmaker has clarified that it won't be a reboot.
"This movie takes place exactly four years after the war in Chicago," Bay said on his site. "The story makes a very natural transition."
And seeing that this movie will have a brand-new cast, with former franchise star Shia LaBeouf publicly washing his hands of the series, we believe Bay when he says that "this 'Transformers' will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy."
"Transformers 4" is expected to start filming in the spring.
Does anyone care anymore? Michael Bay singlehandedly ruined the Transformers brand & franchise. Sad indeed.
This new movie will be so cool...Hillary Clinton transforms into Grimlock
I don't know. I guess I'm in a minority. I liked Shia and his parents in the movie and the entire supporting cast. I really like Megan Fox. She has an appeal unique to herself and the looks to support that appeal.
whoever this blogger is a huge trouble maker and huge hater and just move forward asap and apologize..
Thank the Matrix I won't have to listen to Shai scream his lines anymore. I look forward to Marky-Marky and the Funky Bunch alliance in helping me battle the Deceptions.
went back to his referee position...
oh now don't worry...it won't be all the time....this is the worst
that's all i wanted to say....good night
This Shia Lebouf turned out to be a dud.... What a bad actor and all his movies sucK!!!!
Is it just me or does Michael Bay look a lot like Parker Stevenson did at the same age?
Worst. Director. Ever
i have a navy velvet gown long sleaves– same style....kay...bb asap
Who are the imbeciles who pay to see these movies in theaters?
You and your dad
You and your neighborhood
Transformers 1 was amazing. Great story, humor was excellent and the action and effects were totally amazing. This movie is by far one of my favorites. Only someone who hasn't seen the movie in HD on a large screen would make such an ignorant comment. There's a reason this movie made as much money as it did and everyone has seen it.
I'm not going to say someone should kill Michael Bay before he ruins our lives with any more horrible movies....But I would not contradict someone who said that....
Too bad the cartoons have more plot than the movies...
i smell a Spike sighting.
G1 or bust!
hello–say yes or no!!!!
This is exactly what humanity needs, another version of transformer...
Shouldn't we be thanking Mr. Bay for not foisting LeBouf on us again?
I challenge anyone to name an actor who could do worse with that role!
Other than Brian Bosworth...
(Apparently, he's an actor now.)
LeBouf is awesome, we should be thanking God that he wouldn't go back into the franchise, he has better work to do. Name any other actor and most likely they would have done a worse performance! I hope Michael Bay fizzles out soon, these big franchise directors are ruining what could otherwise be good films.
Me Grimlock say that movie is phooey already.
Me Slag say Grimlock is right!
Speaking of Mike Tyson...
go eat a few donuts-pie in face
F you Michael Bay.
What about that super-hot Australian actress from the first movie? I'd like to see more of her.
but there is nobody here.
As long as filming continues in Chicago. I would like to reprise my roll as Special Forces Operator number "did anyone even keep count?"
It was a great experience. (^_^)
All I have to say is that Major Lenox had better be in this movie...... He is one of the main reasons that I go, but also to see Opitmus Prime too... But Bumblebee is my car.. I would like to have a car just like him.. But I'm not paying 65 thousand dollars for him... "AUTOBOTS TRANSFORM"!!!!!!
Bring back Megan Fox!
Michael Bay actually uses actors for his movies? I thought they were just wall to wall explosions with special effects everywhere?
He looks like Parker Stevenson
i love bay
he never has his voicemail on
bay found himself a true gold mine with this crappy franchise, and it's hard to blame a man for peddling swill that people love to make an EASY buck, but damn he makes some crap movies!

so you will go when ew get you.
if it doesn't stop-whoever it is.

Fun thing about the Transformers movies is that their actually quite entertaining and great popcorn-movies :)
...and this comes from a grown up...
Firat interview question from Bay to the new actor: "Sooo..how do you feel about a lot of explosions?"
