More news on the Mark Wahlberg front tonight - it seems that Transformers 4 is going to be a true family production in that Mark Wahlberg is not going to be the only member of his family in the movie! Mark Wahlberg's children visited the set in Detroit, Mark Wahlberg told Jimmy Fallon in an interview, and they were excited for their dad being in a movie for the first time ever, prompting Mark Wahlberg to ask Michael Bay if his kids could be in the movie. One impromptu audition later, and all four of the young Wahlbergs are going to appear in Transformers 4, possibly at scenes filmed in Chicago.

Check out the full writeup at ComicBook.com.

That's nice. Maybe have them get saved by an Autobot or something.

yeah probably something like that. I can see them being in a small scene like in TFs 1 when OP and Bonecrusher were fighting and dropped down in front of the kid and his mom "Cool Mom!"

I hope this doesn't insinuate awful child acting.

My concern exactly - and I have a feeling that that's exactly what we'll get.

Maybe they just get to be one of the random people that look at the Cybertronians in awe, or they get smashed by debris. As long as they aren't main characters.

It just got real.

DADDY!!! YOUR CAR TURNED INTO A ROBOT!!!!

Oh, I'm sure we can look forward to that.

Please just give them a cameo..and ONLY a cameo..

I hope his kids are decent actors. The last thing we need are more talentless children like Will "Fresh Prince" Smith's kids.

Since when does Bay audition ANYBODY?

What was the audition?
Bay: "OK kids! I'm gonna set off a shitload of explosions. You're gonna have to run really fast & scream. OK ACTION!!...."
Optimus8404
who the PHUK cares??? Tell me which Autobots and Decepticons are in it then you'll have my attention....

It'll just be a cameo appearance, people shouldn't be so upset that the kids get a chance to be part of their dads awesome job.

I'm guessing it's 50% irrational Bay-hate, 50% jealousy. Congrats to the kids to getting an awesome life experience!
knightmare6
Ah nepotism! Actually, I'm cool with it in this case! Hope his kids get a kick out of it!

Aw, don't hate! Get jiggy with it

I lost all hopes in TF movies to be honest. I just see them because I like the CGI and like the toys. I just wished Michael Bay would stop thinking his movies are really great which they are not.
Chaos Muffin
I hope it's just a comedic cameo


*Some kids ride bikes through yard*



"Hey get off my gawd damn grass!"

Calm-the-fuck-down-people. You should be happy for these kids. I'm sure they'll be extremely small roles. They may not even talk.
EnerJohn
Other than that. TF4 news has been very slow, I'm hoping we get some robot news/pics very soon. Even if it's Bumblebee.
bignick1693
That's cool. I'm sure they are super minor and it will be more like a cameo.
Deonasis
They will swallow Allspark crumbs, get all Circuitbreaker-ish and save the day.
Kickback
Some of you guys disgust me.

"OH GOD, SHITTY CHILD ACTING"
"Maybe they'll die"
"I hope they don't suck"

Here's an actor EXCITED to be involved with this brand and franchise, his children are excited for the first time in his career for a movie he's in, and the kids, who are obviously Transformers fans, get to have a small role in the movie.

This should be applauded. Michael Bay wins brownie points for allowing the lead actor's children to be part of the movie franchise they love, Mark gets to have his children on screen with him, and he's EXCITED about all of this.

Yet some of you are complaining. Making jokes about his kids DYING. People often wonder why this community seems to suck so much more now than it ever has before - it's posts like these which make me glad I retired from moderating this site for 10+ years.

You'll get your Transformers, don't worry - and you'll complain about each and every single one of them. You know who the most popular character (after polling from general viewing audiences) in the first Transformers movie was?

I think he's trolling....if not... then..

I agree. I was really excited and glad to hear that Mark would be in TF4. I may be a rare breed for saying that but......rare is original... lol

Also Mark is taking it very seriously, giving it his all. His kids will probably have a roll like the little girl in Tf1 "excuse me, are you the tooth fairy" or the kid in Tf1 "cool mom". 6/27/14 can't come soon enough!! Can't wait

A kid in a Transformers movie? Who would have thunk it?!

Why's everyone complaining? Because they're the lead actor's kids? So what? There were kids in 07 and DOTM ("Is your Daddy Home?") and no one complained. What if after the movie ended or something you saw one of the kids was one of the actors' ... Then you would've all been complaining....

And to that guy that said he hopes the kids DIE in the movie... Da hell is wrong with you? You not only want to see kids die in a movie, which is messed up in it of itself, but you want to see kids who LOVE transformers get slaughtered in a movie they love to be in. You want to crush their little TF-lovin' spirit... That's just wrong dude.

Looking at who posted the 'Maybe they'll die! ' post - looks like the same guy who did the "Peter Cullen passes away" thread in the movie forum. Obviously on here for a bit of "trolling" and stirring shit.
Alooulla
The problem i have with this is one i recall whilst watching the Phantom Menace, in the scene where the other children tease Anakin's pod racer. Mr Plinkett of Redlettermedia made me realise why that scene made my flesh creep; the children were obviously children of the producers and such, and couldn't act but just wanted to be in the movie. In fact the prequels tended to suffer from this a lot. To me, it breaks the immersion the same way the Wilhelm scream does.

I suppose i shouldn't be looking for immersion in a film about giant robots though. If the man's excited for being in the film, that'll do for me.
EnerJohn
Man, seeing so many people getting mad by READING WAY TOO MUCH into this is crazy. Just because his kids are in it doesn't mean they will team up with any Autobot. Doesn't mean they'll be the heroes in the movie. Doesn't mean they will be the stars. It means they're in it, with most likely very small parts. So RELAX!
ThisGuy
This is cool for them. Probably going to a scene that lasts a second at most. Good for them.

Confused be this. It's ignorant to hate on someone you really know nothing about. I've never seen a film with Wahlberg in it, and I've never seen a film which stars his kid. I wasn't aware he even had children.

I wish death upon them so it sets a dark tone to the film. I see no other purpose for kids being in it. In I Am Legend, Smith loses his family, and this, for me, sets a certain tone in the film.

So...

- they weren't in the script originally
- they are only in the film because someone asked Bay if they could be
- they will likely be bad actors

Great news _
Ryan101
Why is everyone freaking out about this? These are Mark's KIDS, they will not have a major role whatsoever. I doubt they will even say a single word. It might be something like what happened in The Avengers, when Loki is about to take out an elder and Captain America jumps in and saved him... I can picture something like that happening with the old man being Mark's kids and an autobot jumping in and saving them.

sums it all up, really.

these kids and wahlberg are living the dream for most TF fans. maybe some people are just very jealous and/or entitled.
KnightHawkke
Cool experience for them. It probably won't impact the film much really.
I mean hell, it's already bayformers, what more can a few kids do?

Go back a page, you must of missed something. Don't be so quick to make a snap judgement.
Alooulla
Children not dying in media like this, and in games particularly, is dreadful i think. The ability to see a child die in a film and not get upset about it does not make one an inhuman monster with no empathy.

However, i am disturbed at the notion that people might want to see children die just because they don't like Wahlberg, or for the pure sake of it. That is wrong.
