I think Mark is an excellent addition to the franchise, I was getting tired of the Sam character. He got too amp'd up too easily and the rapid fire mumbling was getting old.

Time for a more mature character (hopefully, as Wahlberg can play pretty much any age) and a new direction. Four years sounds good, time for a new cast!! And a new threat to deal with as pretty much all of the 'cons from 3 are dead.

Mark should also make it easier to get a good female lead for a change???

As much as I hate Shia, picking Marky Mark was not the answer. WACK !!!

On top of that, why do movie producers always insist on choosing someone almost 40 years old to play the role of a boy in his late teens ? Why cant they just get a boy in his late teens ???

Because a teen might still have to take time off for school.

Actually I was thinking more along the lines of someone ages 19-21. But then again, I would have dropped out of school in a heartbeat to make a cool million in a major motion picture. Im sure my parents would have concured. Ill have plenty of time to attend night school later on, with a fat bank account.

Wait, is it confirmed he's playing the teen boy?

I think it means Shia will be back for action blockbuster movies. He's doing other more serious roles now.

1.) Nowhere has it been confirmed - or even hinted at - that Mark will be playing the "teenage boy" character.
2.) Looking at "teenagers" in film or television, it's apparent that, for the most part, getting a teenager who is actually the required age isn't the best choice. Getting a 16 year old kid to play a 16 year old kid makes them look really young. Crime shows, teenage dramas, blockbuster movies, whatever. You'll notice that they seem to cast older actors to play younger characters. A 15 year old actor will play the 11 year old child murderer, the 21 year old Shia plays an eleventh grader, the majority of the Glee cast is/was 20-25 and they were playing high-schoolers. That's just how casting teenage characters works. Heck, it seems to almost apply in real life too; Carly Rae Jepsen is 26 years old and yet she looks like an 18 year old. I'm 21 years old, but if I were cast in anything, I'm sure I'd be the "16 year old friend" because I look like an awkward man-child. I wouldn't make a convincing young adult, but I'd make one heck of a generic high schooler. Actual teenagers appear to be younger than they actually are when the camera sees them. It's not always the case, but the majority of the time it is.
