    Cool. She'd work as a stand-in. Still kinda unsettling. Sorta like seeing Robin Curtis respond to the name 'Saavik.'

    Seems interesting that Sam has U-turned his mentality since teh last film. And interesting reversal is that in the last movie, he wanted a normal life but everything was stopping him, in this film it could be that he has a normal life, but feels that he either no longer deserves it, or recognises his importance now.

    And another cover-up? Boo. The up side here is that they say they're "trying" to cover up, possibly failing, too.

    I hope that this actress, and whatevever scene she's filming, makes it into the final cut of the film. This is important, from a storytelling perspective - show that the Mikaela character still exists in the universe of the third story at least once, even if you kill her off. Remind the audience about this character and her importance in the grand narrative of all three films.

    Even if it's just this one scene and then, OH NO, it turns out so-and-so building was destroyed by Decepticons with Mikaela still inside, this scene is important and needs to be in the film, in my opinion.

    Grain of salt. While this could be legit, it's also common for audition scripts to be completely different from the final.

    But it would be nice to see Mikaela 1 last time.

    She definitely does a great job of acting like Megan Fox as Mikaela, and I actually think she's better looking than Fox, but I just... Why? I mean, what is the purpose of the whole Carly thing if Mikaela is in the movie? I could kinda see myself suspending disbelief enough to ignore the fact that she's a different person if [Mikaela] is the female lead, but in a strange way it makes it even more bizarre if the character is represented in a small role but either killed or cast aside in favor of the Carly character.

    My thinking on this is that it is real, but took place in a time of desperation in which Bay knew Megan Fox was the squeaky wheel in the operation, and the idea of recasting was ultimately discarded. That's the only way it makes any sense - I just don't see them going to the trouble of killing off the Mikaela character as it doesn't fit the tone of the franchise, and the idea of her being portrayed in the film yet still breaking up with Sam is an odd mix between a half measure and a bad idea.

    BAAAAAAAD AAAACTIIIING....

    Yeah, I'm calling BS on this. If it is legit and a current indication of a scene in the real script, don't let this girl anywhere near the film. Yeah, she's pretty but she makes Megan Fox look like a Shakespearean-level thespian.

    very true, but the part about Sam's Parents has been proven to some degree cause of On-Set Pics of them being filmed in Chicago though
