It’s been a week since Megan Fox departed the upcoming Transformers 3 and it appears as if director Michael Bay has a replacement already locked down. Deadline is reporting that Victoria’s Secret and Agent Provocateur model Rosie Huntington-Whitley has been offered the role and that negotiations are currently in process.
Huntington-Whitley has beaten out numerous others reportedly up for the role including Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jessica Lowndes, Zoe Saldana, Hayden Penetierre, Camilla Belle, Ashley Greene, Amber Heard, Julianne Hough, Vanessa Hudgens and models Bar Rafaeli, Miranda Kerr and Brooklyn Decker.
A quick check of the IMDb shows that Huntington-Whitley has absolutely no acting credits on her resume. Conversely, Fox had at least a handful of small television and film parts prior to Transformers catapulting her career.
But then again, this is a Michael Bay film. Does it really matter what kind of acting chops the cast has? So far, the Transformers franchise has proved that humans are a distant second to all the CGI action that Bay throws on the screen. If anything, her casting gives numerous webmasters to post pictures of a sexy model in her underwear on their site.
