    I know, my 2nd thread of the day. It's really boring at work... :) 

    If you could have any other actor play Sam Witwicky in Transformers movies, who would it be? Even if you liked Shia as Sam, you have to give an alternative actor that could play him.

    I actually liked Shia in the role, but since this is just 'what ifs', I'll list my choices.

    1.) Joseph Gordon Levitt
    2.) That is all.

    Well, if a TF4 is made and starts a new trilogy, I wouldn't mind them going into the future a bit with an older actor portraying Sam. I'm not saying someone who is in their 60s, but probably someone who is in their late 20s early 30s.

    As to who that would be, I don't really know. I'd prefer someone who looks somewhat similar to Shia Labeouf.

    I may get threatening messages for this but maybe Ryan Reynolds? If the Green Lantern franchise falls through, that certainly would free him up for a different action flick.

    Chuck Norris. Then there would be no need for Autobots.

    I'd go back in time, oh, 27 years and abduct Michael J. Fox.

    That would actually have worked pretty well I'd say.

    At the same time could we resurrect Que/Wheeljack and get Christopher Lloyd supply the voice!

    Everybody wins!

    Michael J. Fox would have been perfect for the role. He can act like an actual teenager in awkward situations while also displaying a sense of coolness.
    If I had to pick a current actor I'd maybe give it to David Henrie.

    To the Michael J. Fox/Christopher Loyd ideas, I am currently attempting to breed my Back to the Future and Transformers Blu-Rays. I will let you all know if there are any developments.

    To be honest, I'd erase the character completely and replace him with Lennox and his team. Then you can have all of the military vs. political tension that was kinda present during ROTF and DOTM.

    If I had to have a Witwicky, though...I'm gonna jump on the Michael J. Fox bandwagon. That would have been epic.

    If Sam (Or parhaps a rebbot Spike?) I would have Ryan Reynolds play him.
    Considering how well and light headed he played in his movies.
    Plus, I REALLY wanna see if he can act in a bay movie :bay  :crazy:
