Shocking: Michael Bay Testing Young Hotties For ‘Transformers 4’ Including Abbie Cornish’s Sister; No Word On Supermodels Yet

Shocking: Michael Bay Testing Young Hotties For 'Transformers 4' Including Abbie Cornish's Sister; No Word On Supermodels Yet

Michael Bay Testing Hot Young Actors for ‘Transformers 4′ Leads” reads the THR headline that spells things out: director Michael Bay is looking at attractive, fresh-faced actors to help star in his ‘Transformers’ quadrilogy. Uhh, duh? What else would he be looking at? But we’re actually shocked to hear that none of them are Sports Illustrated swimsuit models, supermodels or Victoria Secret’s models, but hey, the day is young and there’s lot of casting still to come, right?

According to the trade, Bay will be looking at the following two actresses: Isabelle Cornish, the younger sister of accomplished Aussie actress Abbie Cornish and Nicola Peltz, the young female lead of M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender.” She would play some sort of helpless daughter to the film’s Mark Wahlberg, which makes sense given that both females seem to have strangely wholesome beauty qualities instead of the sexed-up type Bay usually casts in his pictures (those will surely come later).

For the boys, playing the part of the daughter’s boyfriend, a racecar driver (of course), Bay will evidently be testing Luke Grimes who had a role in “Taken 2” plus appeared on the ABC drama series “Brothers & Sisters” among other roles, “Weeds” actor Hunter ParrishJack Reynor (“What Richard Did”) and Aussie actor Brenton Thwaites (who starred in the 2012 TV remake of the “Blue Lagoon” titled, “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening” — lol). What’s clear is that Bay is largely looking at relative unknowns for these two parts instead of the the usual hot, up-and-coming crew; stars in the making they call ’em. Predictably, all the potential actors would have to sign three picture deals as a new franchise is in the works and the film will likely begin shooting next April if all goes according to plan.

I want Nicole Peltz to be in the next Transformers movie.


No, I call it sexually exploiting them. That man and the stories how he treats women are full of horror.

There are lots of fishes in the sea


Geez, what a surprise there. He’s the worst.


You guys are so mean to Bay. I guess he deserves it.


What about the Victoria’s Secret Model from the last film?


"…given that both females seem to have…" There is something horribly animalizing about that. What is wrong with the word 'women'? If you were writing about two male actors, would you have referred to them as 'males' or as 'men'? 'Men'.


from that little crop circle, Isabelle Cornish looks soooo pretty
