Jack Reynor has been cast as the second male lead in the new “Transformers”, said to be the first chapter in a new trilogy of the robots vs. robots vs. humans saga.
Director Michael Bay confirmed the casting of the “What Richard Did” actor over on his official site.
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.
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 then the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy.
A casting call issued several months back hinted that the second male lead was the race-car driver of Wahlberg’s on-screen daughter, so no doubt Reynor’s already learning how to dodge witches hats on wet roads.
