That didn’t take long. Less than 48 hours after we learned of Megan Fox’s ouster from the production of upcoming blockbuster Transformers 3, we get news that model turned actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is set to replace her. Let me not pretend that I know anything about her. She is the gal in these photos, who consequently has never acted before. The 23 year old is a Victoria’s Secret model, which still doesn’t help me out, since they all look the same in various stages of undress. An internet search will yield similar results for the curious. But here she is.
JoBlo.com claims this is confirmed news, while others are still not commenting. I suspect where there is fire there is smoke. She supposedly beat out Mrs. Roddick, Brooklyn Decker, for the role, someone whose work I am familiar, as she was the cover girl for the last SI swimsuit issue. Is this a sign that Bay is not concerned about how well the female lead can act, but only how she looks? Perhaps. It’s the robots’ show and LeBeouf and company really are there to serve as down periods between robot action anyway (from what I gather). I suffered through the first film once and never saw the sequel. Sue me. Nevertheless, do you think that Transformers 3 can get by without Fox? If I was a betting man, which I sometimes I am, somehow, I think the production will be fine, the fans won’t miss Fox much (especially once the previews come out), and the film series can come to its ultimate (hopefully) conclusion here with the third chapter of Transformers. Agree?
