    After seeing two of DOTM's tv spot (which, I will add, totally ROCKED), I began to wonder... can this 'Rosie' girl act? So far she has not actually said a WORD in either of the trailers. Plus, Bay hired her knowing himself that she has no acting experience whatsoever and gave her the big role as Sam's new love interest (or possibly wife) anyway!

    So what do you think my fellow TFfans... will Rosie be superb.... or another Megan Fox?

    I'm definitely not expecting an Oscar winning performance from her.

    At least her thumbs are normal, that's a start.

    Well, Megan Fox at least had some acting experience prior to Transformers. As you mentioned, Rosie has no experience acting at all, so I'm not expecting a great deal from her, but I'll give her a chance....

    if rosie or carly makes her self usefull in the movie then yes,

    i dont want to see another girl holding sams hand all the way till the end without doing much like megan in ROTF

    if she assisted the autobots like megan in TF1 (bumblebee on pickup truck shooting brawl) she'd be alright

    but more importantly, the new transformers in this one...can THEY act????:)

    Well, I honestly don't have my hopes set too high for any acting in a Transformers movie. Her acting is fairly irrelevant, she's just a piece of eye candy to draw horny 18-35 year olds to the movie. Just like Megan Fox. I'm guessing her acting will include slow-mo shots of her looking sexy while wearing perfectly clean white clothing in a battle zone.

    I don't car, she's just eye candy and I love it!

    I'm a bit amused as to why people always posted negative views on Megan's performance, when it was just fine to me?
    I'm sure Carly do just fine.

    My gut feeling is that she can't act she's just there as eye candy for the teen males these films seem to be aimed at.

    If she can act I doubt we'd know it from a Micheal Bay film. The action is cool in his films but the female roles aren't exactly the best female roles you can find in a movie. Acting almost seems optional as actors are mostly there to move the film to next big effects shot.

    Honestly, what difference would it make either way? She's hardly going to be the film's focus.

    It's not like Megan Fox did anything other than run around looking gormless.
    I think Rosie will be a dramatic improvement, if she manages to avoid having a lobotomy.

    I assume then you haven't actually seen the other two films?
    The "touching and dramatic relationship between a boy and a girl" are more important then the bloody robots.

    I may actually be a ten year old boy in a 29 year old body, but I don't want to look at pretty women in a Transformers film, I want bloody great robots beating the crap out of each other.

    Like Megan I doubt she will have big lines so I don't think she will need to be that great. You don't hire an underwear model for her acting

    Seeing as i've not seen her act in anything (As she hasn't done before) i'm going to wait and see how well (Or not) she does in DotM.... i have no doubt that she'll have gone to Statham and got tips off him...

    Being a model doesn't mean she can't act.
    At least let's see her first, eh?

    Running around looking scared and looking up at cardboard heads doesn't require Shakespearean brilliance either.
    I doubt she'll be any more wooden than Megan "Dude... whut?" Fox.

    If you watch the Superbowl trailer for DOTM, there's a really unfortunate shot of her face, with the most dull and bored expression on her face while something is exploding behind her. It only lasts for about a second and a half so it could be (since its in slow mo) simply her transitioning from one expression to another.

    That said, no, this doesn't require Shakespeare level talent, but christ what is the problem with wanting the young actress or actor who's going to be the focus of this affair (since heven forfend that they take a risk and allow the Autobots and Decepticons to take the central role) put in some bloody effort; because I wasn't getting that from Megan Fox.
