Mark Wahlberg In Talks for Transformers 4?

Feel it! Feel it! Comingsoon.net has posted an article stating that actor Mark Wahlberg (Ted, The Happening, The Other Guys) has been in talks with Transformers 4 director Michael Bay about possibly starring in the next installment of our beloved franchise. The article goes onto state this as a distinct possibility, as the two have just come off working together on the upcoming film Pain and Gain. Director Michael Bay was quick to reply to this news, posting on his website: "The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor. Mark and I are talking about another film project". Bay is quick to not confirm or deny the rumor.

Interesting side not to this story; Mark sings Stan Bush's power rock song from the 1986 Transformers film, "You Got The Touch" in 1997's Boogie Nights.

I gthought the female lead was a teenager seems abit old to be dating a teenager. Before I heard about the roles I was wondering it Bay would go with the Rock and Wahlberg for tf4
seems a bit too rumorish right now though
optimusprime42
beat me to it FMA... if he is then i'll pass

Bay has already debunked this one:

Michael Bay Dot Com
megatroptimus
TF4: Dirk Diggler Rising.
TylerMirage
inb4 countless threads of dozens of pages each saying how the movie will automatically suck or automatically be awesome and start basing the quality of the movie on this casting choice and bashing each other.

Also: Dang it, Mike! You're supposed to cast Dwayne Johnson, not Mark Walhberg!
Karhukjnsi
I'm going to guess an older Sam.
Zidane56uk
Oh please god NO!

He's a terrible actor! Only bearable in movies such as 'Ted'
Dolza_Khyron
lol this guy is 41, and looks it.

i hope he is NOT the race car driver the "teenager" is dating!
ssjkazer
FOR, THE, LOVE, OF, GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHAT, HAVE, THEY, DONE.....

Micheal Bay Turn this around now do not go down this path there is no returning.

If it was true...it could be worse. Wahlberg's not really that *bad* an actor (nor is he a great one), he just tends to take very bad roles. At the very least he tries with the material he's given.

...even if that material is 'look like the comic-book Doom marine on a berserk power up for this scene in Max Payne, ok?'

He could play her Dad.

Tons of slow motion images of Mark Wahlberg looking confused and surprised?

Yes please.
gokuz23
He's in Pain and Gain with Dwayne Johnson
Illmatic
Seriously with that pic they should've referred to him as "Marky Mark without the Funky Bunch" may star in Transformers 4.

I see what you did there...
Superquad7
I'd really like for this to happen.
Decitron
Optimus Prime takes a hit on the wild side, and Marky Mark is there to pick up the pieces. This can only be terrible in the awesomest way.
lildevilchick
Can't say I really care about this one way or the other. I'll still watch the movie and reserve judgement for when it's over.

watch, as dwayne is in it too
Erector
Wasn't he rumoured for TF3 too?
Supremus
If Bay denies it... you know it's true.
soundwaverulls
So Bay says it's only rumor. Then it is most likely true. And judging by the photo of the dude on the front page, he's going to be comic relief.
michaera
Mark Wahlberg sings "You've Got the Touch"

Thanks to ORIO for making me LMAO with the "Feel it, Feel it" in the news post. That and the picture choice was awesome.
Wadeledge
Well if Michael Bay says that it's not true you can write him on the cast list in ink. Just like Megatron not being in ROTF...
DMcB360
better than "shit hot" i-robot shial les-bo. but thats not saying much.
Lurkertron
Well, he's damn sight more tolerable than Shia TheBeef that's for sure.
Welcome to my nightmare, Digglertron.
qwerty
now all we need is Rollergirl....

Is in the neighborhood of 20 years old. So that's not the same Mark we have today.
doomtron
Wouldent of been my first choice for a tf movie but I liked his work in the departed .although since hasbro came out and said the character changes were due to poor toy sales. With dotm I will be skeptical until I see it.

I'd love Wahlberg to be in TF4.
bigevil801
DEAR GOD NO, I can't watch any movies with anyone with the name Wahlberg in it.
bignick1693
I don't know if he will do it. But if he does that will be cool
Runeink
all the pictures of this dude online and that is what someone puts up???
bsutton1
I still love watching Mark Walhberg's movies but I hope he isn't the main star. They need somebody younger, fairly in their 20s as another poster mentioned. Alex Pettyfer maybe?

You know there will probably be more than two roles in this film right? To me he'd be fine as a soldier, anyone ever see Three Kings? Maybe he'll be a new "Lennox" type.
Satomiblood
I like Wahlberg. He's got the build and look of an action star, but his acting somewhat separates him from that typecast.

The only thing I don't like about it is that Wahlberg's contract could take a chunk out of their overall budget. I was hoping for a smaller, lesser-known cast since I want something with more robot characterization/screen-time.

I was just saying that they can go with a younger star for the male lead and keep wahlberg in a supporting role.
Grandum
just when I thought that bayformers couldn't get gayer...
Lucs
Now that I've heard this "rumor" I will NOT watch TF4 unless I get me some Wahlberg in it!

There's another possibilty everyone seems to be ignoring, that he could simply be voicing a bot, personally I like that idea, he'd be fine for Hot Rod, or any other brash unamed bot, that will exist as a character from the continuity, and toyline, but will be renamed last minute by Bay. Wahlberg will be a backhoe, and his name will be "Diggler."
DarkSkyfire
If there are any humans in the movie, the movie will suck.
JavaJim
Please no. Whalberg is the gaming / comic killer.
Jakest123
NEST, much?

I kinda like this idea. Just leave earth and humans out completely. If Wahlberg is in it, let him voice a robot.
