Michael Bay Reconsiders Mark Wahlberg For TRANSFORMERS 4

Michael Bay Reconsiders Mark Wahlberg For TRANSFORMERS 4

A couple weeks ago Michael Bay shot down rumors that stated Mark Wahlberg was in talks to join the cast of Transformers 4. Now, Bay says those same rumors have planted a seed in his head.

After enduring three "Transformers" film with Shia Labeouf, Michael Bay has made a new thunder buddy, Mark Wahlberg. Bay just finished working with the actor for his new low-budget action film "Pain and Gain," which also stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. A few weeks ago reports stated that Wahlberg was meeting with Bay about another project, and the internet quickly assumed it was for a role in "Transformers 4" but Bay denied that speculation, saying it was for an entirely different film. Today, Bay posted a message on his official website to let fans know that he had a change of heart.

"I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Walhberg. Mark was rumored to be starring 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." - Michael Bay.com

Is Grif still banned? I mean, is there not like a time limit or something and then you are back?? I find it a bit unfair that it only takes any one person to REPORT about 3 times and that is it... you are gone! I looked at Grifs comments and they were harmless. I don't get it!!
jessepostal - 11/7/2012, 9:07 AM
@nomis, grif got banned????
DarthTesla - 11/7/2012, 9:10 AM
Why can't a new Transformers movie just be like the 1st episode of the classic cartoon? Start on Cybertron, focus on the [frick]ING TRANSFORMERS, have little to no humans/human interaction.

But there has to be some bullshit love story crammed in there.
Hudson3D - 11/7/2012, 9:10 AM
In all fairness Nails, I saw you say that yesterday or the day before but I'm not sure why. Other than saying SHIT MOVIE, I am guessing that he must have pissed you off at some point.
thalidomide - 11/7/2012, 9:15 AM
He used the word "inception"!?!??! NOLAN RIPOFF!!!!
Hudson3D - 11/7/2012, 9:18 AM
Alright...... I was only asking.
WildCard12 - 11/7/2012, 9:20 AM
[frick] grif glad he's outta here he was so obsessed with shit.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 11/7/2012, 9:24 AM
Reinstate grif, that's horse shit.
EpicMan - 11/7/2012, 9:27 AM
I have been a memeber for a verrry long time, and frequented the site for a time before I became a member.

And i have to say that GRIF WAS GREAT! You guys that took so much offense to him popping in for a quick word no matter how rediculous it was are a bunch of frickin CRY BABIES!
EpicMan - 11/7/2012, 9:27 AM
Ohh and Cowboys SUCK! Texans to the big show. ITs our time!
DarthTesla - 11/7/2012, 9:30 AM
Is this post still about Transformers?

Ok, I'll be in my corner, playing with my action figures.
Stumblin - 11/7/2012, 9:34 AM
Who cares if Grif got the boot? It happens, so he can't comment anymore, he can still check out the site and mumble to himself. Move on.
CharacterAssassin - 11/7/2012, 9:39 AM
@EpicMan... how you gonna say Cowboys suck? They're a five time Superbowl Championship winner. And the Texans have how many?...
IDKwhatToChoose - 11/7/2012, 9:41 AM
Micheal Bay = Brett Favre
EpicMan - 11/7/2012, 9:45 AM
@Character Assasin Live in the Past much?

The Texans have had more playoff appearances in the last 20 years than the Cowboys.

And how many years have the Texans been a franchise?
figuresmaniac - 11/7/2012, 9:46 AM
Ted for Transformers 4
ATrueHero1987 - 11/7/2012, 9:52 AM
lol @ the article pic!

As for the banning thing, it puzzles me. Grif is gone but TheWonderer & Ceejay(the constant shit starters) are still here...
EpicMan - 11/7/2012, 9:54 AM
Actually i was wrong in my previous statment.

The Texans have more Playoff Victories in the last 10 years than the Cowboys.

That is the stat i meant to say
Matador - 11/7/2012, 10:08 AM
My two cents -

From Transformers to men bending over in spandex fighting for a piece of skin for shame!

As for Grif he should come back as Biff as in Biff Tannon avatar. Hey it says it all.

DukeAcureds - 11/7/2012, 10:26 AM
And I'm sure this makes Marky Mark's life complete. "Oh thank you Mr. Bay for reconsidering me".
Someone should blow Bay up.
DukeAcureds - 11/7/2012, 10:27 AM
(Sory, still miffed over Bay's Ninja Turtles and how shite it's gonna be).
DukeAcureds - 11/7/2012, 10:30 AM
Grif's gone?
That's shit.
Bring him back! And Gusto, too. Seems like any CBMer with character gets the boot. Who's next, Teabag?
AC1 - 11/7/2012, 10:30 AM
No Marky Mark, don't do it! Stay away from Transformers and Bay! If you do it, I hope Ted drops another TV on your junk.

@Nail no offense, but you make it sound like Grif betrayed someone in almost Shakespearean levels of tragedy. You can't really take anything on the internet seriously, unless it really crosses the line.
DukeAcureds - 11/7/2012, 10:32 AM
Besides, Grif didn't think everything was shit. He friggin' loved Conan!
Funsize - 11/7/2012, 10:32 AM
I hope Disney buys this too. It probably wont happen though.
EpicMan - 11/7/2012, 10:36 AM
IF you want to live in the past... could please also show me what a 1 and 15 season looks like because we havent seen one of those either.

How about i refraise my statement.

The Cowboys, of the last decade (10 whole years) suck. The cowboys, since the Texans have came on the team SUCK. Cowboy fans are obnoxius and live in the past.
EpicMan - 11/7/2012, 10:38 AM
But seriously, just some friendly cattle rod poking.....

WATT just happened
CharacterAssassin - 11/7/2012, 10:48 AM
@Nomis... that's too much chrome for EpicMan... lol
GiantNerd - 11/7/2012, 10:52 AM
Damn, it looks like grif really hurt some feelings this time.
imnotwearinghockeypants - 11/7/2012, 10:57 AM
grif has been on this site forever and professed to love it. Cutting him out is a real bitch move.
Wildebeast5162 - 11/7/2012, 11:39 AM
Bays movies are entertaining. I have enjoyed most of them but they are poorly written excuses to blow crap up
Grif was funny but mildly annoying. That said I always kinda thought he? was playing a character for humor. Banning him because someone whined seems wrong.
Minghagz - 11/7/2012, 12:09 PM
lol @ Splenda
gaikinger - 11/7/2012, 12:11 PM
Well thanx anyways Mickey....and say hello to your mother.
Minghagz - 11/7/2012, 12:12 PM
I say [frick] the humans and just do a war for cybertron / fall of cybertron.

...but that will never happen
KillerOfSaints - 11/7/2012, 1:50 PM
Grif is gone!!!!!! So who is going to tell us how every movie is SHIT????
KillerOfSaints - 11/7/2012, 1:51 PM
Gusto is gone too????
KillerOfSaints - 11/7/2012, 1:51 PM
Wheres LEEEE and TEABAG???
BlueDemon - 11/7/2012, 2:34 PM
