Irish Actor Jack Reynor Cast In TRANSFORMERS 4

JackReynorDirector Michael Bay has cast Irish actor Jack Reynor to appear opposite Mark Wahlberg in the next installment of the ongoing Transformers franchise.

Apparently, Bay liked Reynor’s Horatio Alger story and says so in the announcement he made on his website –

I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie WHAT RICHARD DID. This kid is the real deal.

Bay also takes the time to address the rumor that the new film might be a reboot of the franchise –

Transformers 4, is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net.

This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast. This Transformers will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.

Transformers 4 is scheduled for a June 27, 2014 release.
