A few days ago we reported Megan Fox was not going to be returning for Transformers 3. While early reports said it was Michael Bay that fired her, others reported Fox quit the franchise due to the way Bay was treating her on set. Either way, it’s shocking news, as not many get fired/leave a franchise when it’s so successful.
With principal photography happening right now (or about to happen) on TF3, it’s no surprise every young actress was being considered to replace her. But according to Geek Week, it’s already been decided who will replace Fox as Shia Labeouf’s love interest and it’s Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. More after the jump…including a ton of pictures of Huntington-Whiteley.
While getting a model with no real acting experience to replace Megan Fox might sound a little strange, this is exactly what Michael Bay loves to do. Before the first Transformers movie, no one had heard of Megan Fox. Yet he decided to cast her and the rest is history.
Also, look at the first Bad Boys. Before that film had you heard of Téa Leoni? It was her work in Bad Boys that launched her career.
With production of TF3 going right now, I’d imagine we will find out if this casting story is true very soon. Until then, here are a bunch of pictures of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I can’t imagine what Bay sees in her.
