Michael Bay Now Likes That Rumor About Mark Walhberg Being In Transformers 4
You may remember a few weeks back there was a rumor that Michael Bay was looking at Mark Walhberg to star in the semi-reboot Transformers 4. It was surprising that no sooner had the rumor got out, that the director took to his personal website to shoot it down outright. Now that he has had time to think about it, Bay is actually kind of liking that rumor.
Bay took to his website once again to say that he might have been swayed by the internet buzz:
I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Walhberg. Mark was rumored to be staring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4. I had such a great time working with Mark on Pain and Gain, and he gave such a great performance – well let’s say that very internet chatter gave me some ideas. We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4. Let’s say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer – so I’m here to say thanks internet chatter.
Bay had said before that he was in fact talking to Walhberg about a different movie, and not TF4, due to how well he liked him on the upcoming Pain and Gain with Dwayne Johnson. It sounds like the internet reaction may have swayed Bay into courting Walhberg for a role in TF4 after all. What do you think about Bay’s change of heart? Are you expecting some Marky Mark and the Transformers bunch now?
