According to GeekWeek director Michael Bay has hired Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to replace Megan Fox as Sam Witwicky’s love interest in Transformers 3. Following Fox’s departure last week there was speculation that Bay would be replacing her with an actual actress; however it seems people were naive to think that.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has no acting experience to date however I don’t want to judge this early on. I’m sure she can run away from explosions just fine. She may even be better at it than Megan Fox.
Here’s a video of her talking. She’s British!
This casting hasn’t been officially confirmed, but with filming currently underway we will likely hear confirmation one way or another very soon.
What are your thoughts on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley possibly joining the cast? Would you have preferred it if Megan Fox was still around?
