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' quadrology. 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, Super Models or Victoria Secret's Models, but hey, the day is young and there's lot of casting still to come, right?

Michael Bay Testing Hot Young Actors for 'Transformers 4' Leads

"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.
