Stunning news: Michael Bay is auditioning hot young actors and actresses for Transformers 4

Whoa, friends and neighbors.  There's some hot stuff going down on the Paramount lot, and I don't mean rays from the sun.  Nor do I mean a casting couch situation.  Nope, just the "news" that Michael Bay is auditioning a batch of hot young actors and actresses for the two remaining lead roles in TRANSFORMERS 4 alongside the one being played by Mark Wahlberg. 

The sequel "has a story that centers on Wahlberg's character and his daughter. In addition, the daughter’s boyfriend, a race car driver, is the third lead in the film." Currently testing for the daughter role are: Isabelle Cornish (LIMITLESS, sister of Abbie Cornish), Nicola Peltz (THE LAST AIRBENDER, "Bates Motel"), Gabriella Wilde (THE THREE MUSKATEERS, CARRIE), and newcomer Margaret Qualley.  Meanwhile, on the male side of things, said race car driver may well end up being one of these five actors: Luke Grimes (TAKEN 2, "Brothers & Sisters"), Landon Liboiron ("Terra Nova", "Hemlock Grove"), Brenton Thwaites (BLUE LAGOON: THE AWAKENING), Hunter Parish ("Weeds"), and relative newcomer Jack Reynor.

Word is that Paramount intends to sign whatever female and male leads it eventually settles on to "strict three-picture deals," which is really not all that surprising.  Bay's franchise is here to stay, and by the end of this decade we're going to have a grand total of six TRANSFORMER movies.  Which is at least a little bit crazy.

Meanwhile, Neil Burger's adaptation of Young Adult novel DIVERGENT and DreamWorks' adaptation of NEED FOR SPEED are also casting hot young actors, the former in search of a male co-star for Shailene Woodley and the latter in search of other racers to go up against Aaron Paul's lead character.

More casting details as we hear them. All three of these movies will be releasing in 2014 -TRANSFORMERS 4 arrives June 27th, DIVERGENT hits March 21st, and NEED FOR SPEED crosses the finish line on February 7th.

Transformers 4 contenders

Extra Tidbit: Based on look alone, I bet Bay goes with Gabriella Wilde.

I choose #3, now please add about 15-20 new Transformers, it is only the 4th! film and we've seen what only 20 different characters? Create some new ones for goodness sake if they are afraid to ruin some of the original characters, oh wait it is michael bay still directing, he's never afraid to ruin anything we cherish.

human casting must not be top priority

Focus on the transformers, let 30 of them audition for a role in the movie, then accept the 10 closest to their original design and make them practice their voicework so they wil sound exactly like the voices in the cartoon. Any robot that cant talk wont get a role, any robot without colours wont get a role, any robot with more than a 100 moving parts wont get the role .....

Sick of the typical casting

Most people on this planet are average looking people with REAL personality. They aren't model-level attractive, but attractive none-the-less. Why can't we get casting with people that resemble my next door neighbors who I interact with everyday. I know beauty is different to the person perceiving it, but I don't care about hot chicks and shirtless guys. I like story lines that captivate me. Meh, shove it up your ass Michael Bay.

The ironic thing is, Transformers fans want fewer humans, and non-Transformers fans who go see these want more.

Exactly which is why we'll never have a true Transformers movie cause the studios need the dumbass teenagers who come for Wahlberg or some bimbo.
