Megan Fox out of ‘Transformers 3’
Considering what she told Entertainment Weekly about “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” we’re willing to bet Megan Fox isn’t crying too many tears over losing her spot in Michael Bay's third installment.
A rep for Paramount confirmed to CNN that Megan Fox won’t be back to reprise her "Transformers" role of Mikaela Banes for a third time.
So did she want a third movie? “Sure,” Fox told EW. “I mean, I can't [expletive] on this movie because it did give me a career and open all these doors for me."
But, she went on, "I don't want to blow smoke up people's [expletive]. People are well aware that this is not a movie about acting. And once you realize that, it becomes almost fun because you can be in the moment and go, 'All right, I know that when he calls Action! I'm either going to be running or screaming, or both.'”
Huh. Well then – any ideas for who should be cast in her place?

I do agree with all of the ideas you have introduced on your post. They're really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for newbies. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
Seriously...megan fox is the only reason us males watched transformers and u know it...so get over urselves
Fans, we have a new actress and her name shall be Paris Hilton.
Megan Fox did fine and she really fits with Shia LaBeouf in either appearances or characteristics. no one should replace her. I like to watch transformers with full cast. Everybody acted very well in both transformers 1 + 2
what the heck i mean i love Transformers.... the reason i watch it is because megan fox inspires me. She makes me feel like i can do anything if i put my full effort to it! and for all of yall people that do not like her you can get over it!!!!! she means a whole lot to me:)
Guess Michael Bay will have to stop and buy a blow up doll before production starts. Maybe if he writes a paragraph on its side in Sharpee no one will notice the difference.
I think Megan Fox has got a very vugar mouth on her! Does she think its so cool to curse every other word? Even though I like her in the prevous 2 movies, Paramount did right by giving her the boot! Maybe now she'll watch who she is talking about and watchi the swearing. But young actors today think that is ok to bite the hand that feeds them and still expect a paycheck!!! WRONG!!!!
Do the producers of Transformers believe that people come to see these movies because of plot, or because of Shia LAWhatever? Can we have a reality check here for just a moment? Most people, other than the kids, watch Transformers for one reason.......and you're cutting that reason? They will Transform this series into oblivion.
Lets face it, the 2nd Transformers was not good. Megan spoke out what most of us felt, that the director was more interested in loud noises and big bangs, than he was story and acting. You cannot tell if she can act, simply because the director was more interested in presenting her as a barbie doll than any kind of character.
Meh. I have to agree with the gentleman who said to just not make the movie. The first was good, the second was very mediocre (though not quite the pile of suck I was led to believe it was) but the third will undoubtedly be horrendous.
Unfortunately most people my age will eat it up because it has the Transformers name on it.
Unfortunately I cannot comment on Fox's acting because I haven't seen her try. Lord knows these films are not hardly outlets for acting-and no, screaming at a blue screened explosion doesn't count.
I can do it!!!!! Fingers crossed for Hollywood to come knocking on my door!!!
dude she has to be in the movie...But WHO CARES...She can choose what she wants to do.....
Isn't running, screaming, and bouncing all she can do? Whenever she tries to act the picture tanks. Personally, I think her looks are highly overrated and her personality sucks!
no way Megan – you gotta be in the movie – action, robots and those legs – what more could a guy want?
....and has not been surgically altered. I have seen movies and shows she was on when she was younger and she looked the same. She can't act, but she is hot!
Get a new lead and move Ledoofus over to Fox's role he's much more feminine than her anyway.
Bring Scarlett Johansson!!, she's far more beautiful than Megan, and she looks great in dark hair!!.
She rocked in Iron Man 2 as an action star, so perhaps writers of script for third installment of Transformers could give her a more active role and more interesting than just running and screaming (or 'both' as Megan says).
Oh wow, the multi-talented actress Megan Fox decides to quit Transformers (probably fired). I'm sure we will see her on 'Celebrity Roommates' in the future.
She should have apologized to the cast and crew of Transfomers 2, vowed to keep her mouth shut and collected that multi-million dollar payday while she still has a figure that can fill those short shorts.
She will be a has been soon enough....
This is actually a blessing in disguise, as I believe she will be superb in the upcoming remakes of "Sophie's Choice" (as Sophie of course), and as Ilsa in the remake of "Casablanca". She really needs roles where she can show both her emotional and intellectual range, which is considerable to be sure.
No talent and no savvy. She things cursing is cool but it actually exposes her very limited vocabulary. Let's see how far her career goes now.
I second Olivia Wilde.
How about Lindsay Lohan. She should be out of jail by then, and even drunk or stoned she is a better actress than Megan Fox. Megan had her 15 minutes of fame, did a couple of forgettable movies, and now she can go back to obscurity. And yes, Jonah Hex will bomb.
Megan Fox was the best part in both Transformers movies!!!
There's going to be a Transfomers 3? Why?
This chick is delusional.
This is good news. Now she can go back to making movies like Jennifer's Body!!!
Transformers is a typical hollywood over-the-top 90 minute commercial to market kids toys. Throw in a bunch of explosions to distract audiences from weak acting and character development and the fact that the laws of physics don't apply in this movie for some reason. Some day I will bother to see the second movie, and partly because Megan is nice to look at. No Megan = one less reason to bother with movie turd #3. Maybe Sophie Howard would be nice to watch, with some explosions and the sorry excuse for a plotline going on in the background.
Sasha Grey !
Bring back that Australian chick from the first one! She was hotter anyways!
Megan Fox is a terrible actress. Transformers two was absolutely horrible. I'm glad she won't be in 3 because she'd probably make it worse than 2. Hopefully it will be good, but with Michael Bay's direction, it's sure to be bad.
Enough about her. Megan Fox, what a joke. Like all the other posts have said, a pretty face and body can only get you so far, but let's be honest here. Starting right off the bat, Michael Bay is worthless. All the actors are worthless. The plot or lack there of thrown in with newly made up robots. All of them are worthless, void of any substance what so ever. With-in my own circle of friends, none of them liked any of the movies. All comments are as followed: "some cool scenes", "cool CGI." That's it! I would not care one bit if they did not make another one under Michael Bay's lead. T
Get Allison Mack from Smallville, she's not doing anything at the moment. Heck any woman from Smallville will do.
Jake Gyllenhal? Now you're talking! Shia and Jake...hot combo! 😉
Don't worry Megan, your acting talent will not go to waste on movies like Transformers 3. You need to have acting talent first.
Sean's suggestion of Betty White beats anything I can come up with.
However, if she is not available, how about the actress who played the college girl who tried to seduce/kill him in Transformers 2? Why couldn't her Decepticon robot be swayed away from the dark side (like the old SR-71 Decepticon). They could get an inter-species thing going... Maybe for a soundtrack morph Golden Earring's "Radar Love" into "Robot Love"...
i am so not whatching this movie now she was the higlight!
She was the only thing worth watching in the second movie
They wrote the characte around her abilities. If you have seen anything else that she has done, you would understand that the girl cannot act. So, her character didn't need to say much. The only thing that she was good for were the slow motion scenes of her running and showing off her heaving breasts. That barely counters all of the airbrushing that they had to do in every scene.
Two words: Toe thumb!
How about "Megan Fox is Megan Fox, in the upcoming thriller.....Gobots". Now that sounds like a winner to me.
FREEZE FRAME!!! That scene with her doing airbrush on the motorcycle. Smoke'n!!! Haha!
I hope she doesnt show up on WWE–then I have to stop watching that.
Smoking hot body but not a brain cell in her ditsy little head. She wants to be taken seriously as an Actress?? Hahahahaha!
Yeh, and her movie about that vampire cheerleader was a shure oscar.....
It's not about the humans. It's about the robots. Also, no 2 hour movie can tell the complete story of the series and the characters. I'm not looking for a deep meaning from a movie like Transformers. I'm looking for robots going toe to toe, explosions, laser canons, and hot looking chicks.
Look what happened to Superman. The story was great and each actor did a good job yet the movie bombed because there was toooooo much story and not enough action. I love Superman but I fell asleep because it was Super slow.
Most people commenting here don't like TF because it is either not exactly what they grew up with or they are not the intended target audience.
Hahahah...now Brian Austen Green will be the biggest star in the family!
That is just plain sad!!!
Dime-a-dozen. I'm sure there are attractive, slim, long-haired actresses ALL OVER HOLLYWOOD that could fill the role for $4.80 an hour.
IT SHOULD BE HER ........................SHE IS HOT!!!!!!!!
Helloooooo! These movies are based on a children's cartoon. Did anyone really expect it have deep, hidden meaning? True, Megan Fox is a horrible actress. She probably couldn't act her way through a feminine hygeine product commercial. She is also shallow and, quite frankly, not "all that" in the beauty department. She has a hard looking, pinched up face and a fake smile. Sia Lebouf, however, is an excellent actor and proves that it's perfectly OK to take less than serious roles. Sometimes it's all about the fun!
That's OK. I heard she is really a man.
I was a little shocked about the fox not returning for TF3. She should of been given the opportunity to show some acting by having Shia (sam) in a love triangle. Some way to still keep continuity and also have the people interested in a different light. Plus with fox in a three way would be awesome! Talk about majic! Anyhow I have to nominate Olivia Munn as a potential. That would certainly help Morgan Webb get in ATOS so she can help the ratings. Please post it!
Well, I don't think that she will be all that missed. She did not really bring that much to the film other than T and A. I like that just as much as the next man but sometimes I just like to see s**t get blown up. Maybe they should replace her with Master Blaster or Metroplex...or better still how about the Dinobots. All my true old school Transformer heads know what i'm talkin' about.
I guess I won't be seeing it then.
Megan is hopefully one in a heap of trash that needs to be hauled away from Hollywood. Michael Bay may have botched Transformers 2 but he is still established in Hollywood and his word is golden. Bad movie or not, he will still pull in big dollars while everyone goes to 'see' the movie even if to complain about it later.
For those of you who insist on defending someone who is marginal at best, no matter what she looks like, I'd like to see you spending the rest of your lives going to see her movies so she'll have a box office draw. Superficiality can only be sustained for a short while. Something tells me when the next T & A Hollywood Messiah comes along, no one is going to be doing a save Megan's career telethon.
Maybe they can get that overweight actress from the movie Precious to take her place, LOL!!
After the disgusting two characters on the 2nd film i could care less about this movie or anything else Bruckheimer produces. Beings with technology vastly superior to ours, but somehow illiterate? BOYCOTT!!! Im sure most wont agree, but i live in 2010.
Who could be cast in her place? How about a puppet? Or a blow-up doll? Seriously, is anyone going to miss her stellar emoting abilities? It was all about eye-candy from effects to "the girl"; they'll find somebody...no one has any illusions why Megan Fox was cast in the first place.
I love Megan Fox's bluntness (her looks don't hurt either). Hopefully Transformers 3 will be better than its predecessor. Megan Fox was not the problem with TF2; the problem was horrendous writing.
Basically, all the non-fighting parts of TF2 were terrible, and a movie can only go so far on spectacular fight sequences. What people don't understand about TF1 was that it actually had a cute and charming human story. As Roger Ebert said, the film was snappy and humourous and engaging until it was actually dragged down by its climactic giant battle sequence.
If the human part of the story is weak, the movie will be weak. Dumping Megan Fox suggests to me that the film will go even more in the direction that TF2 did, which would be a mistake.
She is a retard and a partisan liberal stooge.
i can't stand megan fox. she thinks she is so great! i have to disagree to that.
Perhaps Megan Fox and Kristen Stewart could pair up and share angst together. As a famour reviewer once said, "their emotional range runs the entire gamut from A to B."
She is definitely a head case off set with an ego of monumental proportions. While she may not be the greatest actress of all time, I'd say that she played the role that was written for her pretty well....whether you think Transformers 2 was crap or not. Let's get it straight though. The TnA aspect of this movie is part of the allure and what has amplified its success. If you put an average looking woman, who is a great actress into that role, it wouldn't do as well. The actress's acting ability would be overshadowed by the futuristic CGI stuff anyhow. The fact that Fox is a bombshell gives the movies another angle for making money. It would do just as well with any major hottie, but wouldn't do squat with an average gal.
How about Mila Kunis?
Megan Fox is the only reason to watch these movies. She is the most talented actress to ever walk this planet. She should have gotten the Oscar. Oh, and I kinda like it when she talks dirty.
STOP DISSING MY FUTURE WIFE
The really sad part is they are going to make another movie period.
Now the twit is saying she wasn't fired but that she actually quit. Sure babe....I believe you. NOT!
All of you on here could't even talk to a girl that fine! Also a pretty face will make you a Mil. in this country! Those of you who put negative comments on here can go back to your fantasy world where your girl friend is a blow up doll or your right hand. Bunch of loosers!!!
Ashley Greene will do. So hot.
Well, they have a right to reproducing her likeness now.
So... Megan Fox's stand-in in the next Transformers movie will be... Megan Fox – her cardboard cut-out, to be exact. Still hot and same acting range.
They'll just tape her to Shia LeBeuf's back so when he runs from explosions or falls on his face, we'll have something to look forward to.
Whoa, Megatron just totally blowed up the house under Shia... and he's down... face down... and hey' that's Megan Fox in a bikini. Sweet !!!
I hate you CNN...you'll probably let me post this, but you won't post my well thought-out comment! You suck!
This would be a really bold move: how about a movie ABOUT THE TRANSFORMERS ONLY. I don't remember the humans being any much of a factor in the 80s cartoon series; much less in the merchandise that came with it.
Any bimbo will do.
She is hot though.
Continuity is important. Megan Fox did her role in this movie justice. They should resign her.
In all honesty, this role didn't really call for a lot of acting ability. That's the best thing about Michael Bay movies; he can cover up the fact that the actors suck by putting in big explosions and special effects.
I think we all saw how much the second Transformers movie sucked... We can expect the same kind of story in the third. Regardless, it's going to make a ton of money between ticket sales and toys and crap. They can spend the money to get Megan Fox back and at least keep the continuity, because without it, this movie is a total fail.
Most people I know watched 'Transformers' mostly to see Megan Fox not the robots.
Two word answer - "lawn gnome"
Same acting ability and IQ
Wait a minute. There was a transformers 2? No wonder I had this feeling of unfinished work.
TFMRS 1&2 were not "acting" movies, they were "action" movies (similar sounding words, different spelling and meanings). They did splendidly in that capacity, and Megan, good actress or not, can do what she did in them for me anytime. Just wish she'd clean up her off-screen mouth. That is a real turn-off for me.
I guess none of her movies have been about acting then.
I guess the director doesn't think this foul-mouthed twit is very talented either.
Megan Fox can act as much as Ke$ha can sing. I watch transformer 2 over just recent again and I couldn't figure out the point for her being in this movie. Its like she was drag along in the plot for what reason? she didn't even seem to fit in the movie. Some of the blame has to go to the writing because her character really did not seem to even be apart of the story line through out the whole movie. I can see her character being important maybe at the start of the film but thats it.
To me it looked like she was just being drag throughout the movie for no reason whatsoever.
Megan who? Just have Bumble Bee sit on her on accident and kill her off!
and this stick figure angelina jolie wanabee matters because?....
How about Olivia Wilde? She's gonna hit this Genre well with Tron Legacy, she's hot, and will respect Bay enough to get through the rest of the series
A lot of class – All of it low...
The second movie sucked out loud. The plot wasn't good, and it was about 1-1/2 hours too long. Of course, the 10 year old kids the movie is aimed at probably liked it.
comments about how running and screaming aren't part of acting are exactly the kind of thing that keep her, and will continue to, from being a good actress. Acting isnt being able to cry, in fact, thats boring and predictable. You have to create characters, with totality. And believe it or not, characters do run and scream, but you have to show us how they do that.
Good...one less robot.
You don't put girls in action movies unless they're naked. Whatever happened to gratuitous nudity in film anyway?
Come on...she's eye candy..she can't act any more then Ben Affleck can act. Any actress can fill in. Nice to look at? You bet!! Good actress? Uhhh........ No.
She got kicked off a movie about toys that s*cked in the 1980's?
It was her toe thumbs wasn't it?
TJRedneck, Yeah she may get little bit roles on sit-coms or on WWE but I would have put on them coochie cutters and laid across that motorcycle too for that paycheck and I am a 300 pound man LOL!!!! Yeah the chick from T3 would be a good fit and she she is a better actress. Tiffany, you are also right because it's like an accident on the road people will look just to see what is going on. I also must agree with the people who say that they should concentrate more on the robots themselves because the movie IS called Transformers. People like to be taken away from reality for that 90 minutes that they pay 9 bucks or more for so yeah I say bring on the robots. Transformers 3 = $.......Imjussayin
I see we have "crop comments" popping up...As for Megan Fox. Now she can do a real movie. Like Iron Man 3.
Maybe now the movie will have a plot...wait, it's a Michael Bay movie, it's not going to have a plot
Bring in Natalie Portman...she's hot and she has a brain.
To the people who are critizing the Transformers frachise, please stop lying, you will go see the movie. I wasn't impressed with the second installment either, but I will go see the third. As far a Megan, I wish her well but I do look forward to a new leading lady who will be appreciative.
I would drink a gallon of her pee just to see where it came from.
I agree...Marissa Miller would do just fine
@Sean...My day was starting off all wrong then I saw Betty White. Thank you for that. It's the little things in life that matter.
Awwww...man, I was hoping she'd comeback and try and make up for Transformers 2. She is a big reason why I was so excited for Transformers 2. Now I have less of a reason to look forward to Transformers 3.
Imjussayin – yes you are right, but it doesn't change the fact that she can't act. She has had her 15 minutes of fame and she is done. Good riddance too, I'll bet without all that makeup and airbrushing, she's not very hot at all. The stupid tattoos are a turn off too. I think they should have hired the woman who played the Terminator in Terminator 3.
Cast Taylor Lautner as the love interest. Now THAT would be interesting!
Since she can't act she should have stuck with it !
Don't know what is wrong with these two – they both publicly make fun of the very movies that have made them rich. Shut up and be grateful
Just keep the new guy James D. Weston II (www.imdb.com/name/nm1377340)
Here quote was pretty much right though. This weren't no movie 'bout acting. She is fun to look at but there are other women that are fun to look at. And since this isn't a movie about acting, then just get a hot woman – I vote for Leeann Tweeden – to pretend to be in peril. Do a good action movie and the fans will come.
This is the Best Thing ive heard all day!!!! Shia Lebeouf is great, For that girl to say there is not acting involed i want her to look back at Shia's performances in both of those films and say it wasnt acting, I mean just the dialogue between him and his parents was beyond hysterical. I am not worried about Transformers 3 they can erase her from the history books in 2 words, and move on to an impressive more accomplished leading lady.
Bring back the British chick from the first movie...she's just as hot and could easily be written back into the story!
cool thumbs megan
Ok people lets be honest, Transformers 1 & 2 did what they were supposed to do, make money ( Transformers 1 roughly $709 million worldwide, Transformers 2 around $708,272,592) off of peoples childhood memories . Fox did what she and any other female offered that role would have done, look cute and get paid. At the end of the day no matter how much people like or disliked them ( the movies or Fox ) everyone envolved has a bank account bigger than most of ours and to be honest it wouldn't matter if they put the aflac duck in Foxs' role Transformers 3 will still pack theaters every where. Imjussayin.
OhThank God! Score 1 for good sense! What a waste of film this girl is. She says "Transformers" isn't acting; yet, she manages to make it look pretty tough. Hmmmm...my bet is there's no Oscar with her name on it.
Guess she hasn't realized that people just want to look at her, not her acting ability. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
What's the problem here? There is nothing wrong with what she said. She thanked the movie for her success, said she owed her fame to the movie, and said she wanted to move on to a different role. Whether she's a good actress or not, we'll never know until she tries something else.
Let's get Betty White in there!!!!!
Remove her Hollywood make up and hair stylist. Then she could play one of the ugly robots.
This ungrateful witch needs a reality check. OOOHHHMMM LETS SEE $5.000,000.00 to stick your ass out sensually and act badly OR nothing.Hum seems like a no brainer to me. What an idiot no one cares if she can act or not she was cast because she looked good this girl must be incredibly high maintance.
Whoever takes her role, I hope they kill-off that Ellen character first.
BABA BOOEY, BABA BOOEY, BABA BOOEY!
Sometimes looking good and being quiet is the best thing to do if I could earn that kind of money for doing that I would be the perfect little actress but nope these young hollywood types think they are smart and should be heard well she talked herself out of any decent movie from now on. Oh and Megan most directors act that way on set because they have a time schedule and buget to stay on.
I liked both of the movies, I cannot see why they just can't leave out the love story lines. I could care less. I have to agree though. I wish there was more stuff blowing up. I was a bit upset when i saw side swipe as a concept corvette and not a lamborghini. oh well, i am not really interested in the third movie. I sure as heck will not go see Toby Mcquires ROBOTECH when its released. how about using people that are not already stars. I do keep getting tired of seeing the same faces over and over.
You mean who can look good while running around reading the most mind-numbing dialog on the planet in a movie about aliens who choose to take the form of GM products....oh....I think they will find someone
Well this will improve Transformers. Now it will just be awful instead of terrible.
Megan Fox is fooling herself though if she thinks she will do any better than that move. There are too many pretty girls out there wanting to be stars, and some of them can act.
Did you see Jennifer's Body? Yeah, I didn't either. It was her big star making turn and it bombed. But TF2 made almost $400 million domestic, so the flicks will go on without her, and will make big money. BTW, I thought TF2 was awful. I liked GI Joe better. And I'm really looking forward to The A-Team!!
Just so you all know, people magazine has the "official" statement that says that she quit the film. If it was a fight between her and Michael Bay again, who knows?
On a side note, this is a sci-fi action flick, not a drama or something else that is looking to be something of serious substance (more's the pity). It's a movie based on a cartoon used to sell toys to kids. Um, news flash(?)... it's only supposed to be a fun flick. Bring on the next installment!!!
I dont care to watch if they dont have MF. Jason
Transformers 3 will be made by a guy who doesn't know how to make movies but will not star an actress who can't act? I still give it 0 chance of being good.
is everyone in the world now retarded? they're, their, and there are 3 separate words. Almost every post has a word spelled incorrectly. if you right click you have spell-check automatically.I am not an old school teacher but i am surprised at the level of writing i see on the average joe's posts.
As long as the replacement actress doesn't have toe thumbs I am considering her an upgrade. 😛
When asked to comment about Fox being cut from Transformers 3, Michael Bay responded, "...and then an Autobot will come crashing through the wall *boom*! And then *crash* a Decepticon will land over here and fire a bunch of weapons *boom* *boom* *shwap* and this big tanker truck will go *fwwwwoooooomm*! ... Megan who?"
though as a second thought . Betty White can be fun .. no listen,,wait wait and think about this .. she has range and talent and sure can be funny .. .. pay her in chocolate bars and she could kick some serious decepticon butt and maybe some autobots if they get on her way . now that i would like to see .. LOL . still laughing about replacing Megan Fox with a rock . !! hehehe LOL that was funny . 😉
a rock ? LOL LOL LOL haha hheehhehhe LOL hehheeh LOL, that was funny . LOL i just cant stop laughing . LOL . heheh haha much less type . LOL heheh
Good, taking too much away from the robots themselves anyways. Besides, Shia will do what he does best anyways...run around screaming....which is formula for every movie he does.
First she disses Disney and now she disses Micheal Bay. She is burning a lot of bridges.
I'm glad actually. I liked the first one except for the leboff and her in it, the love interest was unnesscary, the product placement was overdone, but not as bad as the romance story. Haven't seen the second one. This should be a movie about giant robots, and pointless explosions. Thats were it should stay. Should have just followed the soldiers from the first one threwout the movie for the human side, and left her and that leboff guy out.
The Transformers movies are terrible. There's no amount of special effects or Megan Fox that can save these movies from bad writing and a bad director.
makes sense ..
Michael Bay would never get someone like Megan Fox in real life, and this 'trilogy' is just his adolescence fantasy on film.
Those of us that identified with her hard-ass, soft on the inside, ability to save the day and rescue her wussy boyfriend before he is 'mech' road-kill, and also equally vulnerable so that boy can redeem himself to his parents by rescuing her (with his fathers help), while rescuing his parents with her help, (etc.) will be a little disappointed. But so was anyone who paid to see Tr(RinD)2:RotF. ('T2' was taken.)
PS: If I missed out some social dynamic of the Tr(RiD)2, it was for brevity.
Let's cast someone that can act ourside of their visible skin movements. Action for her is waving her assets.
While you are at it with changes, lets get some technical contributors that know geography, physics and maybe even what is ridiculous to show on the screen, despite it being fiction. Make it a little more believable next time?
Megan was ok in the 1st installment but her acting was HORRIBLE overall.
#2 was CRAP and I was so disappointed that I wasted my money on that bull.
As for 3 IT BETTER BE GOOD OR ELSE!
Megan Fox can act? Now the Transformer movies will be worth seeing.
Well she is kinda goofy looking, they know how to fix her up though. If angelina jolie can move on from all those dumb tomb raider flicks and other corny stuff she did maybe this chick can too.
How about they just quit making movies based off of 1980s culture already, and be done with it? GI Joe sucked. Both Transformers sucked.
mark, that's awesome! I think Betty White would do a terrific job in the role. At least she has talent.
@Aaron Springhart – Dude, 7 spelling mistakes in one paragraph? Your parents must be so proud....
Wow, Megan Fox should be thankful that she was even cast in the first film. She says it plain in the interview that these movies gave her a career. Well with her limited acting ability and zero presence on screen, I can't see her doing any serious movies. I agree with the previous poster. Her 15 minutes are up. And I'm glad to see it done.
I wonder if Betty White is available.
So, Megan Fox is hot. Many of you are jealous that she got so far without needing talent. You can't really make fun of her for not having talent seeing as how she pretty much admitted it in the article. I don't understand why it's suppose to be okay to make fun of someone because they look good. However if I call that girl from "Precious" and disgusting, lazy fat body, everyone would freak.
I don't really like it when they change person for a sequel or 3quel. Who knows why though. Maybe its for the best...maybe not. Guess while see.
Anyone who gets offered a role in the third Transformers movie should run the other way screaming "NO!".
That girl is dumber than a bag of rocks.
All they have to do is cast a chick with large breasts. No acting experience required. Must be wearing a wet, white muscle shirt for casting call.
First they announce less robot fighting and more of a "human element" and I thought... "well at least I still get to see Megan Fox running around in slow motion."
Now they're removing Megan Fox. Who do they want to go see this movie?
If they're going to replace Megan they should replace Shia as well since he also crapped on TF2 in recent interviews.
she cant act her way out of a wet paper bag. she is just a stuck up so called "actor."
Transformers isn't a particularly great movie franchise, and Megan Fox isn't a particularly great or outstanding actress, but what's with female leads (particularly in action movies) being more replaceable or removable than male leads? That's what bothers me about this – I can hardly see them filming without Shia as readily.
That would be more believable than Megan Fox.
about time...the b!tch to thin and stiff. the hair do too long. get a natural beauty with some flesh on her bone ufrigging hollywood idiots...and stop trying to make a comedy out of war bots.
How about Hilary Duff?
If they have to replace her, they should probably find someone that looks like someone Shia could hit. No offence Shia but I'm not buying it. I only liked John Turturro's character anyway. That dude should should get his own MIB franchise.
Everyone thought Farah Fawcett was a dumb blonde for awhile too.
Turned out to be a pretty good actress. Megan Fox brings to the Transformers movies "the girlfriend". Just how snappy do you expect the script to be for this role? Not exactly academy material so how do
we know if she can act or not. All I gotta say is, girl, clean up your
mouth, stop tanning so much, and take some roles that show us what you can do.....if you can get 'em.
Pretty girls are a dime a dozen in LA. You've had an amazing opportunity given to you. To bad you couldn't be grateful. Lesson probably learned to late.
I Think that its terrible that she isnt going to be in the movie. Even my four year old loves her.
Frees her up for "Jennifer's Body II"
She can lay her head on my pillow anytime!
I found Megan's commentary to be straight up accurate and honest. The director wanted some babe to run around and scream her head off. She gets it. She delivered. But when she calls it like it is, she gets a bunch of flak.
Anymore straight talking like that and I would say she earns dibs on playing Dagny Taggart!
2 would have been good if not for the twins. Lets face it everyone, the twins ruined two. They were the Jar Jar Binks of Transformers. Why did they ever even consider those two rejects. The original twins were lamborghinis, I think.
They should've stopped at 1...
If she isn't going to be in the movie, they should just not include the character. When they replace actors it ruins movies. I think they should keep the twins in, just long enough to die a horrible death. And then use thier parts to revive Jazz! Love ya Megan, hope someone changes thier minds.
I don't think there's any reason to continue with her character. However, they will need someone to star opposite Shia. Who though? Not sure on that one...have to think about it.
Stupid move little girl. You just don't bite the hand that feeds you. She's just not that good an actress so blockbuster movies for her won't come around often. Say what you want about TF2, it made MONEY.
Her big mouth just lost her a healthy paycheck. She better start learning about self control during interviews because she just cost herself some serious cash. Maybe she'll figure that out when Hex tanks and she see her pittence of a check.
I've got an even better idea... DITCH MICHAEL BAY! The man has no clue how to direct the Transformers movies. See if Bryan Singer would like to direct the third movie instead. At least he did well with a franchise till he left (X-Men). Just anyone other than Bay.
Oh, well i'll check it out on a boring afternoon at a dollar theater.. it's pathetic... haters can't even help this flick.
How about the get rid of Shia too! There's another one who started with a bright future and ended up being an egotistical, mouthy pain.
I think Ashley Green would be a good replacement for Megan Fox.
How about casting Unicron in there?
Er, isn't Megan Fox in a category of people who can't act, who can't sing but who cares! Grrr....
She breaks up with Sam on the phone in the beginning of the movie. Problem solved! Not that a third installment could be any good....
According to IMDB
Megan Fox Transformers 3 (2011) (filming) .... Mikaela Banes
Yay no more TOE THUMB TOE THUMB TOE THUMB THUMB TOE THUMB
can they get rid of the rest of the humans and get back to just being about the Transformers and their battles?
There was acting in Transformers... 1 or 2? I must have blinked and missed it.
Megan Fox is eye candy, or has been thus far. If she can act then she hasn't been involved in a project that lets her showcase that yet, if not, well... the eyecandy stuff will work for a while. At least she's at peace with it.
Anyone but this little spoiled brat. The first time we saw her on screen in the second Transformers tells us what they wanted her for. Enjoy it while it lasts, babe, because no one's going to want you when you're older (as in, 5 years older). A new, younger, piece of (expletive) can easily replace you.
Transformers 1 was great. The second movie was not-to-great, but I still enjoyed it. Come on, the main reason most people go to see the Transformers movies are to see giant robots beating the living daylights out of each other.
Oh, as for a replacement for Megan Fox? I vote my ballot towards Kristin Kreuk (Lana Lang on Smallville). At least she can actually act.
Pretty face? Is she doing the Proactiv commercials now? Her face is a mess.
In addition I will be disappointed not to see Megan Fox in the third installment.
I think most of you people are ridiculas up here. Megan did a fine job in both movies, she is very attractive, and obviously smart enough to do what she does. She does have the skills to be a great actress, she just hasn't had the right script to really showcase her skill. She is still young in the industry and will grow over time, like alot of Actors do. As far as Transformers go, well the first movie was absolutely fabulous, and the second was a lot of filler like most sequels are until they reach the climatic end to their story. I suspect T3 will be a great conclusion to a spectacular trilogy. And as far as G.I. Joe goes, I can't wait to see a sequal.
@ Jaynicia "and I still couldn't figure out how Bumblebee lost his speech again."
If you remeber in the first movie, He lost his voice when he landed on earth, He never fully got his voice back. The only time he really talks is at the end and he asks to "Stay with the boy"
Oh I see. You're an ignorant basement troll. Your spelling is so atrocious that I can't even understand most of that so I can't respond to it. In fact, I need an redneck dictionary just to make that crap out, but this kind of stands out.
"It is people like you that make me wnat to kill myself"
What are the chances you'll actually do it? I don't think anyone would miss you soooo...yeah. Do your thing.
No loss here–I'm glad she's not going to be in it!!!
We would like to see a "REAL" actress–She can't act any better than an empty can of corn.........
They should replace Megan with Betty White in Transformers 3.
OK and back to what this should be about, This movie would be better (In my book, This means that is what I would like to see) More of Matt Said, I want more of what the cartoon was about. I wish while they were cleaning house they would just Lock out Micheal Bay. Make the movie alot better.
NOTE TO MEGAN FOX : Just shut up and look pretty.
Maybe they can hire like charisma carpenter and she can play cougar!
WOW O GAWD YOU HURT MY FEELINGS!! IM CALLING MOMMY!! Maam, Please go back Heroin filled life, No wait im going to be the bigger person in this battle, You are totally right, But instead of Megan tonight, Ill be thinking of you!!! Don't flater yourself. It is people like you that make me wnat to kill myself. Just make it easy on me just fall off the face of the earth. Thanks babe!
"That is what I though. If you are going to talk all that crap, please be ready to back it all up. Thank you."
Punk please! Unlike you, I can't sit online waiting for a response. I do have a life and it's interesting how you challenged people to bash you for being a horrible person and all I did was try to have some fun with you. All you've done is prove you're a ham-and-egg troll with no life and imagining yourself with Megan but you're probably rolling with Palmela with a Vaseline reduction.
Good night, son. Your hand is calling and I don't want to keep it waiting.
@ Derek: Since you don't know what I look like and I don't have to prove anything to you, you'll just have to go back to pulling it to Megan since that's the most action you'll ever get.
NO BIG LOSS. LAST MOVIE ALL I SAW WERE HER LIPS ANYWAY. WHO WEARS LIP GLOSS IN THE DESERT?
oh the inhumanity... now some please dont tell me that the new a-team movie stinks... i mean the promo alone smells like 50yr old cow manure
Megan is HOT and a disrespectfull B!@<H! If not for Micheal Bay she'd only done some disney POS TV / movies. Too old for disney shows now. I'd love to watch with her mouth sewn shut; that wouldn't make a difference on any of her roles so far. She is an overpaid feux diva. She belongs in B movies, Skin mags, and nude flicks. Transformers is bigger then her and will do just fine without her.
As for her replacement... Miley Cirus?! LOL
Just concentrate on the Autobots, Decepticons, and Cibertron. Maybe re-introduce "Spike" and his family??
She may be pretty.. but newsflash, "she" has a adams apple...
I dont want to see it anymore. I dont care about stupid robots or short as shila whatever. Acting skills or none she made it fun to look at.
transformers sucks anyway michael bay is a re. transformers hasnt been good since the cartoon
Good bye Megan Fox, from the big screen for good probably. You really can't act anyway.
That is what I though. If you are going to talk all that crap, please be ready to back it all up. Thank you.
I just hope this isn't like The Mummy 3, just get rid of the character, don't cast someone else as Mikaela Banes.
Yea but you won't look as good. Prove it to me.
What? Stand around with pouty lips, arching my back and sitting on a motorcycle in a scene specifically designed so the viewers can look up my short shorts? Yeah, I can do that. LOL!
she has ugly thumbs.
hhhmm... Let's see... Shia bad mouths the same franchise recently to include bad mouthing Spielberg and the Indy franchise and yet he is still there for #3... But let little pretty Megan bad mouth the franchise and she is out. WOW.. Hollywood keeps getting better and better...
Whether you make the movie or not, you cannot just go in in the middle of a franchise, replace one of the main characters, and then expect the film to be a hit... It did not work for the Tom Clancy movies with three different Jack Ryan's, what makes them think it will work with this franchise?
For the people bad mouthing her (you know who you are) How about you do what she did. Granted she is not the best female acctress in the world, But for the role that she played in that movie, She played it very well. Now let the bashing begin on how I am a horrible person and that I have no say in this matter. GO!
Transformers 2 was the worst movie of the year. I have issues with movies that do the Egyptian thing in an attempt to explain something ancient but ends up having absolutely nothing to do with the price of rice in China. That Decepticon birthing scene was like "what the hell??" and I still couldn't figure out how Bumblebee lost his speech again.
Anyway Megan Fox is about as talented as an empty cup. I enjoyed the innocence of the first movie but the second movie was like having a root canal. Now that Megan will be flashing her "Jennifer's Body" somewhere else, maybe with a decent script they'll do better this time around...
Oh, give me a break! She was the worst thing about a terrible movie and an even-worse sequel. Her part was completely unnecessary and only existed for a little PG-13 T 'n' A. The series will be fine without her ... that is, a money-making, mind-wasting, intelligence-straining, worthless piece of cinematic crap! Michael Bay needs to be stopped!
Personally, I am so glad that Megan Fox is out. She's not worth a peanut to stand on next to Shia. My vote for her replacement? Robert Pattinson. Now hold on, before you guys (and gals) freak out on me just here me out. Shia needs someone to help him from the Deceptercoins right? Robert Pattinson is strong and brave. 2- He needs arm candy on his side, so I present to you – Robert Pattinson. 3- Every movie needs someone with firm buttocks that look great on 50 foot screens to all cultures – Have you seen Robert Pattinsons rear in ANY movie?
FYI – Megan Fox is a fake!
What a bummer for us Megan Fox fans. If acting is so important to that role in Transformers, maybe they can ask Gabourey Sabide from the movie Precious to take over and fit into those Daisy Dukes, HAHAHA!! Can't wait to see that photo shoot, LOL!!
Who cares? She was a brain-dead hot chick with great T&A. They can replace her in one casting call. The only question is how much scotchguard they need for the couch...
She got introduced to the entertainment industry as "that hot girl in transformers". She probably got more offers now judging by her character. But an advise to you meagan, be grateful of the people that helped you launch your carrier. So what if all you do in a movie is get scared, run, and scream? It still pays you millions doesn't it? Our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan do the same.....only they don't hear "action" and get second takes. They get shot at, thrown grenades at, or targeted by real tanks and rockets, yet they are proud of what they do, keep us safe, but don't make 1/10th the money you make....
@Regina Yeah, in Transformers 2; aside from her white pants not being dirty despite all that explosions, she managed to have her lips perfectly lip glossed! Awesome right!? LoL.
Oh well, you know the reason why there's a romance part in this franchise is because they want something to offer to the female demographic. Plus, the teenage boys love Megan Fox.
But I guess, the way she treated her director is just disrespectful but whatever, if the movie has a great storyline, it can survuve with or without Megan Fox.
Get rid of Michael Bay. His movies make money because the american public has low taste, but he's a terrible director. ie, the Island, Armageddon, Transformers 1 & 2, Pearl Harbor, etc, etc. He sucks!
What a loss. No bimbo to walk around half naked and pouting and believing her own hype. Maybe now the movie can concentrate on what it's supposed to be about hello Transformers. She's such a twit
How about if Michael Bay don't direct the third one. He can't direct.
OMG!!!!!!U gotta be kidding me
How about bringing the other girl back – the one in Part 2 who ended up being a machine. She was hot and a pretty good actress. I think almost anyone would do a fine job besides Megan. Real sick of her Diva mentality. Shia can make anyone look better than they really are. But then again, he can ACT
I'm glad she's out. She really is a lousy actress and she was just not credible enough in her role, which says a lot since near anyone could do this part. Even though it was scripted that Shia's and Megan's characters were dating, there was no connectivity between the two and try as I might, I could not buy into it. Considering that one needs to suspend their belief to really get into the idea of Transformer's that is a relatively easier task than buying in to Fox's character.
Are you aware of the difference between a comma and a period?
Somewhat is one word.
English sentences typically include a subject.
Better luck with your next effort.
My vote goes for Marisa Miller, the Sport Illustrated/Victoria's Secret model. She's tall, she blond, and she's hot. Have Shia break off with Megan over the phone and Marisa can step in. She would be worth watching.
Another Transformers movie? The first two were bad enough.
Here's an idea: don't make the movie.
She is past her prime anyway – now they can get a new, young actress to replace her.
And open doors as in the HORRIBLE movie "Jennifer's Body"..? seriously, this was the best thing that's happened to her..ungrateful. BUT then again, her 15 min of fame are UP! thank GOODNESS!
Why do people knock her acting when they can't even type, wow, reading some of your writing is horrible. Spelling, incorrect use of words and just overall horrible writing. I just feel if you are going to knock someone's ability to act shouldn't you be able to speak correctly?
In regards to the actual story, some what disappointing, hate seeing casting changes in the middle of an existing series like this.
Still love the movies, don't care what anybody says about the story, I enjoy seeing special effects done so well and it takes a special director to achieve the scale Bay achieves.
I will not be seeing this movie then.
Thank god and greyhound she's gone.
Gee, who will act in the third movie based on a cartoon based on a toy commercial? Thank God I can ignore the world in flames to focus on something of true importance.
Vince McMahon would love to get a body like that into his crapabble rasslin' show called WWE....I think Fox would rather hang out with Lindsay Lohan than work for Vince McMahon!!!
So considering the news we've seen recently, Alan Tudyk is replacing Fox? Awkward...
Aaron Springhart.........your grammer and spelling is actually worse than the movie. Who would have thought!! By the way, Megan is so fine, who really cares how bad her acting is?
Megan is not a 'great actress,' but she isn't a bad actress either. She did a pretty good job in "Jennifer's Body." Transformers 2 isn't about acting, she's right about that. Although yeah, her comments are akin to 'biting the hand that feeds you.'
TF2 did suck! Some say she can't act. Can they? She makes more money in one movie than most of us make in a lifetime. Ease up on her. Sounds like someone is jealous. And GI Joe was better than TR2.
Have a Great Day!
They will kill her off in the first few minutes, either using a body double, or some footage from one of the other films.
Who needs actors in a robot movie.
So it may not be about acting, but isn't that why she is in it in the first place?
Dumb move. The studio should never have let Michael Bay and his ego get away with this.
Who do they think the main audience for this is? Teenage boys. And they're not going to see these movies without Megan Fox in them. They didn't fall for Isabel Lucas in the last one, like the studios thought they would. They're not going to go for whoever you get to replace her in this one.
Good luck marketing this train wreck now.
Oh no – Megan Fox won't get to do Michael misogynist Bay's Transformers 3 - how terrible - what a crisis. I"m sure she'll find other offers somehow!
I think that Megan Fox should be in the third movie transformers not only because of her role in transformers one and two but because of the importance of keeping same actors enless they just plain suck at acting and make the movies rateing go down . But in this case Megan Fox did non of
the above , and taking her
of Transformers 3 I think will have a negetive efect enless of course she is replaced by a more popular actor . So to sum it up my opinion is to keep Megan in the movie to make the series complete with the origional actors . A.S
A brick? It'd have about as much screen presence. Maybe you could get a caulk gun and make boobs on it.
Well if she wants to explore another avenue in her acting career, she should contact Vivid. ^^
How about Jake Gyllenhal? Shia and Jake can fall madly in love while being chased by monsters. Give it a Brokeback kind of twist and bring in a new audience, maybe! LOL
Transformers 3: "The search for even worst ratings than Transformer 2".
There are plenty of beautiful women in hollywood who can actually act and have talent.
Megan, you are a Fox, but you have zero talent and no brain. So please just pose for every adult skin mag in existence. That's what America needs you for and only that.
dude, all lies!!, they released photos of her filming transformers 3 awhile ago
when i saw tfmr2 i noticed that during all the bombing and going thru pyramids was it or something she had on white pants and they never got a smudge of dirt. i went back to sleep. all those movies are are explosions and a lot of running and yelling, absolutely no story line except her pants. i know it'll be another $9.00 snooze (i go for my son) all those movies are, no matter who the stars are.
How bout hire a young, beautiful actress who is surgically unaltered, is smart, respectful, and CAN ACTUALLY ACT?
They are adding oscar winners to the movie like John Malkovich and Frances McDormand, that's why they need someone who can compete at their level.
BecauseISaidSo, this franchise is going down the tubes because that's where it started. Do you really think they can't replace a dumb pretty face? Or can you consider, for just a moment, that the problems with these movies are the lack of appeal, the terrible stories, the cliche dialogue, and mindless plot devices that are all overhyped by an idiot audience who thinks that FX a good movie makes? Try reading a book, cromag.
After Jonah Hex bombs, she will wish she kept her mouth shut and stayed with Transformers. Dont bite the hand that feeds you. Transformers 2 sucked and this news just might make Transformers 3 better.
Concentrate more on the personalties of the ROBOTS... who the F cares about her chartacter.... Want HOT buy a Maxim. We go to the movies for more than just that.
How about he fall in love with a "human-bot" who he later finds out is a bot????
A pretty *fake* face... Meh who care its all about the AUTOBOTS!
To be fair- she could be a brilliant actress. Seriously, I've seen both Transformers movies-it's like they were written and directed by a Meth-crazed squirell. How are you gonna be able to tell what anyone is doing?
well that just made me not want to see this movie now....
How about write a decent story line without a love interest? Get rid of the TnA and just add more explosions. Isn't that the formula in Hollywood?
Betty White!! HAHA!
Transformers 2 was crap. GI JOE was great. Megan will do fine.
hahahahaha! This is the one that hates it when she is told she is "so talented" lol ..Wow! She is an idiot.. She should love those moments, she probably doesnt get them often. haha How about cast for a replacement that actually has a brain???
How about a rock? It would have about the same range and level of talent.
Personally she can't act and this will be the end of her "15 min" career, she talks too much, a pretty face only goes so far.
Oh now that's just great. ..transformers is going down the tubes now! First JI Joe was terrible and now this! Aaarrrggggg
