Unlike many people on these forums, I don't have bachelors degree in acting. I always felt that with todays editing technology, the term "acting" is over-rated. Every 2 seconds, the screen changes so they really don't have to memorize s**t more than a couple sentences. And those couple sentences can be done in 100 takes if necessary until a director with a acting degree decides on the final cut. Even a chimp can get it right once in 100 takes. Granted, some people fake emotion better than others. But if I was concerned about emotion, I wouldn't be watching fictional movies loaded with CG graphics. There's plenty of drama and love movies for those of you who like to break down acting. I prefer to enjoy the action and the eye candy. I'm not sure how one female can run or scream better than another unless you just enjoy nitpicking. But then again after seeing the comments made on the Blitzwing review thread, nothing surprises me here anymore.

Megan Fox in Transformers 4?

Could Megan Fox be returning for "Transformers 4"? It was just a couple of months ago that director Michael Bay said no, but an interesting exchange has occurred over on Bay's Shoot for the Edit forums regarding her potential return. A forum member pointed out that Paramount's official Instagram account posted an image of the recently revealed Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe with hashtag #MeganFox. The forum administrator nelson initially responded that it was fake:

MV95 wrote:So the Paramount Pictures official Instagram page posted a photo of the new Lamborghini on their page with the hashtag #MeganFox. Could this be telling us something or (more realistically) is this a mistake or plot to get more views?
nelson wrote:Keep in mind that Twitter allows 140 characters max (including spaces). That was a fake tweet cause it had way more than 140 characters.


Which was followed by:

starscream1017 wrote:except it wasn't on twitter, it was on Instagram
nelson wrote:My bad. Someone's in trouble. It's gonna be a long week.


Fox is currently film another Michael Bay project, she will play April O'Neil in his upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

Here's the image, which has now been removed from Paramount's Instagram account:

Well, firing her was Spielberg's idea in the first place. Since it's been a few years since ROTF, I think it's all good between her and Bay...although I doubt there was ever any animosity between them.

Honestly, Fox, like many actresses who unexpectedly got famous overnight, has a habit of shooting her mouth off without thinking.

Bay himself isn't exactly a diplomat, and often says things in his DVD commentaries that would make the brass at Paramount break into a cold sweat. To his credit, though, he takes as good as he gives. I honestly don't think he gave a rat's ass about the Hitler remark until Spielberg stepped in.

I was gonna say something derogatory about her but she was a significant character in the first flick that stepped up to the plate and went through a lot of **** all the while looking good. She was a strong supporting actress. I respect her for that in the context of the movie.

You know he once refused to let an actress go topless right? Just because Megan Fox is a brainless bimbo who only gets by on her looks doesn't mean Bay put her up to it. :HEADHURTS:

I have enough aesthetic appreciation for female beauty to know that nude Megan Fox isn't something the film needs. Actually, Megan Fox in general is something the film doesn't need. Or Hollywood for that matter. >:oP

I watched the first TF film last week, last time I saw it was at the cinema. The portrayal and over sexualisation of Megan Fox was disgusting. How about a positive female role model in TF4? Maybe a character like Miko in TF Prime.

Soon as we cover up those disgusting displays of sexulization of men in movies like Man of Steel...

Image

...or Twilight...

Image

...or the Dark Knight Trilogy...

Image

...then sure. There's more to a female character than her looks or how "sexy" she is (I would argue against Megan Fox being sexy). In fact if you recall in the first movie Fox's character was more of an action hero than Sam, who merely did his best to stay alive while she charged into the action multiple times. View a character holistically please, not just by the way they dress. >:oP

I like Megan Fox. That scene when she was on the motorcycle in movie one was unforgettable. Bay should have a part for her in this upcoming movie where she washing a car. Yeah a Megan Fox wet and wild car wash scene. But if Bay can't get her back he can always get Kate Upton or Jessica Simpson. But it did seem like she was a good fit for the lead female role.

I'd like to have Megan Fox back, she wasn't a "damsel in distress" type character. Hell she did most of the work while Sam just hid behind his robot body guards. Although now that the main human role is being played by someone else (can't remember his name right now), she might be even more of a sex appeal character than she was in the last movies.

Either way she'd be nice to have back.

No complaints here. I'll take one Megan Fox over one Shia Labeouf ANY DAY.

If I hear him scream "Bee" one more time, I may have to kill someone... :BOOM:

Bay has a lot of "integrity" for hiring her back. What happened between them anyway? Lover's quarrel? Because the effect was about the same, and they're sharing a bed again. :roll:

She compared Bay to Hitler in an interview, Bay didn't give damn but Spielberg had her fired.

And she hasn't been hired back at all. Transformers 4 has an entirely different human cast this go around. Heck the thread title was that she isn't coming back. :HEADHURTS:
