Jack Reynor Getting Ready For Transformers 4

Posted on 01-21-2013 at 12:54 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Irish actor Jack Reynor has revealed he is undertaking intense physical training for his role in Transformers 4.

Mr. Raynor told the press "I'm training very intensely at the moment. I'm going to keep that up until we shoot. I'm going to do some different courses, some different things I need to pick up for the film. My character seems to be a race car driver so I'm going to be doing a couple of driving courses and getting out on the track." He also briefly comments on his audition process and how he nabbed the coveted role. "It was after a film I was doing, 'The Delivery Man', with Dreamworks. I went through quite a rigorous audition process out in L.A., and after a certain amount of auditions and meetings with different executives, I managed to pull it off."

Reynor also told BBC during London Critics' Circle Awards: "I did [audition], which was an intimidating thing to do, We sat down, we had a long chat one day, which was great. I felt totally comfortable with Michael, he’s a really nice guy, but, you know, in the back of your mind he is such a huge director and he does these really high scale type of films. It can be a bit intimidating, but I went for it as best I could and it came out alright."

The 20-year-old 'What Richard Did' actor - who was hailed by director Michael as the ''real deal'' - hasn't met co-star Mark Wahlberg yet, but admits he greatly admires the 'Ted' star. He said ''I haven't met him before, but I'm really excited. He's one of my favourite actors. I just think he's brilliant. I have a huge amount of respect for him as an actor so I can't wait to get on set with him.''

Michael Bay will direct the next installment in the “Transformers” series, from Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., in association with Hasbro, the film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.

Great news!

I'm liking the actors Michael Bay has chosen for the film, excited to see more.
Lord knows he won't have to train mentally...
"My character seems to be a race car driver..."

Hehe, glad he knew what he was auditioning for.
He's got kinda crooked eyes. I only mention it because I couldn't tell what was off with that photo.

Well that was a failed burn.
Still having hope that he doesn't need to force any accents and can just do it with his regular one.
Dem Eyes.....
He seems confident and excited for his role. I'm also excited to see what connections his character his with the Transformers in general.
I'm loving how the actors seem very excited for the movie, hopefully that will pay off in the actual thing.

Well so far he's a hell of a lot more likeable than Shia or Megan.

Though I have no idea why he says it seems like he's a race car driver? I mean how exactly do you not know if he is indeed a race car driver...unless there's more to this than meets the eye.

I think I'd probably see the movie one due to him.
Firstly - despite Bay's intense regime - he is unlikely to do the racecar stunts (Which will likely be in the film) so what is he training for? I honestly doubt he'll do any of the car stunts and at this point in the script/filming i doubt he has even been told what he might be doing in a car.

I'm guessing he is simply doing this interview and making it seem like he is prepared - probably after being advised to 'get his face in public eye' just incase the film is a flop atleast he can get publicity - as, let's face it... he is not the best actor and was likely hired for his looks (More on that later)

As for the remark about his character "My character seems to be a race car driver" its very likely given his likelyhood to spill the beans on the plot/film even more than Wahlberg is currently doing - that he has simply not been told anything about his character.

From what i remember also the first news i heard on the whole 'Racecar driving Bf' was that the female cast member would be the lead role this time... so it could be likely that his role really is just reduced to being someone we see drive a car and thats it.

I would also like to point out that a seperate article talks about him 'bulking up' for Transformers 4. It is likely he is the 'eye candy' for the female viewers with the plot being mostly the female lead is trying to win him - most likely by being a cheerleader for him at the racecar track - which will no doubt be attacked by Decepticons.
He's an Irish actor...I'll only dislike him IF he's arrogant, obnoxious loudmouth who needs all the attention, is whiny, ect. But I'll give him a chance for sure!
Honestly, I want Bay to revisit the dynamic in Armageddon with the "hot shot" boyfriend dating the daughter of the lead man. It was fun, and allowed that touching ending.
He seems pretty cool, let's see how it turns out.
rung for life
usually when bay says something is the real deal, it's failed... i'm not expecting anything high from the coming movie... it's going to be the same shit soup he fed us with the last 3 movies.

Do race car drivers actually 'bulk up'? I can understand the need to be fit as wrestling cars around a track needs strength and endurance, but the drivers still have to keep their weight down. I suppose it depends on what kind of racing we're actually talking about here. That and I don't really follow racing.
... Race Car Driver.

Am I sensing Wreckers maybe? Or am I dreaming into it too much...?
If he stars to scream "Optimus!" then that is when I will stop. That kinda got on my nerves after the 2nd film.
Hold on....wasn't the boyfriend on the "fake" script a race car driver? Hmmmmmm
