Brenton Thwaites & Nicola Peltz Reportedly The New Shia LaBeouf & Megan Fox Of 'Transformers 4'

With Mark Wahlberg confirmed to lead the mega-franchise, Michael Bay started his search for the new young leads that will help the kiddies decide which toy they want most from the upcoming “Transformers 4.” And it looks like a decision has been made, and no, you probably never heard of them, and shockingly, neither is a Victoria’s Secret model either.

Twitch reports Brendon Thwaites (huh?) and Nicola Peltz (who?) have landed the two other main lead roles alongside Wahlberg. If you watch Lifetime, you might recognize the Aussie Thwaites from “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening,” or perhaps you’re a fan of the soap “Home & Away.” As for Peltz, she’s just glad “The Last Airbender” won’t be her cinematic legacy. But at the end of the day, these are two very affordable young stars that Paramount won’t be breaking the bank for, and it’s a nice opportunity for these actors to get a big leg up in their careers. Win, win all around. No exact details on their roles, but Thwaites will be the “biker boyfriend” of Peltz.

Production will begin next year and “Transformers 4” will arrive on June 27, 2014.

Want to punch him in the face for some reason.


… Yes, because the Transformers franchise did wonders for the careers of everyone not named Shia LaBeouf.

People don't get it – the robots are the drawcard, not the actors. This will do nothing for their "transition" into adult careers except fill their bank accounts.


Wahlberg's just the intial box office drawcard as Paramount reboot, If cast, Peltz will carry on any future films as the main protagonist (possibly with Thwaites in tow). Mega money for Wahlberg and big time exposure for the kids as they attempt to transition into adult careers.
