A trio of Transformers 4 extras casting calls have gone out via Beth Sepko Casting & Third Coast Extras on Facebook.

The initial call that went out was for "Submissions from Extras with very strong unique "character" faces that express a larger than lifeTEXAS type personality. Think people that look like Ranchers, oil men and women, realtor types that sell Dallas mansions, small town salt of the earth types, and strong southern-looking men & women- with faces that have a real local Texas flavor to their look and uniqueness!"

A second call followed today for some more specific casting, as follows: ""Mom"- Female Caucasian or Hispanic: Age 30s-50s (must have plus sized figure, expressive comedic face, small town Texas look ); "Dad"- Male Caucasian or Hispanic: Age 30s-50s (must have plus sized figure, expressive comedic face, small town Texas look)"


There was also a casting call for Hollywood staple attractive women: "FEMALE CAUCASIAN EXTRAS between the ages of 16-23 fit, tan, attractive with an "all-american" Texas type"

Hot Shot.
I guess it's our community being stereotyped this time. :\

Anyone here still think Bayformers 4 will be any better?

Yup, being stereotyped and as for TF4 will be any better it remains to be seen, literally.

The qualifications are extreme.

I usually can't stand it when people make comments about Bay like that, but I must admit, that made me laugh

A very interesting casting call from Texas that could actually show us a possible sequence taking place there:

"Transformers 4 is also in need of female Caucasian extras that happen to be “between the ages of 16 – 23 fit, tan, attractive with an ‘all-American’ Texas type look.”

Can't help but think about an oil rig transformer.

Yeah, I posted that yesterday under this thread, Is there more than meets the eye to the Transformers Texas casting call?, mentioning that.

Going to be worse than the first 3 by a long shot.

Unicron? Dinobots? Galvatron it'll be a disaster.
Shizuka
I hate these kind of stereotypes. So women of different shapes aren't attractive? I prefer chubby women and I'm quite offended by men's typical taste in women. And I'm not saying that I know what women in Texas are like but surely if there are women who do a lot of manual labour surely they won't be fit as in "supermodel" fit right?
st.ranger
I smell stupid stereotype funny scene from this.

Most people think we ride horses all the time. So show up riding a horse with a cowboy hat on and you will probably get the part.

Originally I was optimistic. Then I heard about riding on Dinobots. Now I say probably not.

I got family in Texas. I should go borrow their clothes and show up with a big wad of chewing tobacco and see what happens. But all joking aside, I love visiting Texas. It's a great place. And my brothers aren't "cowboys".
Chopperface
I'm a full-blooded Texan. But I don't look like I play Woody from a live action Toy Story. So I guess I don't get the part.

"All-American" sounds difficult to define for me. Especially in Texas...

I have to say though, a pretty big sign that you are a Texan (and the south honestly) is using "y'all."
MetalStorm
"Hi, my name is Hank Hill. I sell propane gas and propane gas accessories."

You got the part
Shizuka
Y'know, for all we know, riding on Dinobots could be in one scene...
TedimusPrime
this might be a little racist

also, are there no black, native, or asian moms and dads in Texas?
Rumblestorm
This is about the same amount of butthurt as an anti brony in a brony forum.
Seriously, I'm from Texas, and I'm liking this idea.
QLRformer
I hope they have shootouts and John Wayne to back up Optimus. Ain't nothing much can beat a Western showdown.

That would be fantastic. Especially if they could feature the ARMAGEDDON crew LOL but I doubt MBay would go that far.

I'm pretty sure by "All-American" Bay means "Big Tittied".
Snoopy Magnus
so far a long while san antonio was one of the most obese cities in america... so hold on while we all slug are way up I-35 and be part of mr. bay's masterpiece!
Obliterator999
Wow, just wow. Won't Bay ever learn anything...? Wait, stupid question.
Stryker055
I can think of nothing positive to say about this report. There's just too much to criticize and make fun of.
MrSoundmeister
if anyone tries to recreate meet the engineer as part of their audition,i might laugh especially with cgi robots (decepticons) being blown up in the background,because you' know,that would be a total shoe in. *Sarcasm,sarcasm.*
Stygian360
Snarky witticisms aside, the types of character parts being requested here are interesting. Seems like perhaps there may be some segment involving drilling for oil, which may or may not involve the discovery of Dino bones. I'm completely out of left field with this one, but it seems possible.

Here's something interesting from the casting company's Facebook page the news article just so happened to miss:

The "attractive tan white girls" thing is... well, Bay, but it's hardly like his detractors are any better.

I'm guessing the kid here is white and/or hispanic (or those two ethnicities can pass for each other) and they want the kid to be the biological offspring of the parents.
... which is a totally normal, OK thing to have.
agentcastle
... (judgmental sigh)... i prefer my dinobots to be made by wheeljack or found by gnarly construction crews and not by tig ole bittied blonde tween co-eds on a class trip...

Yep, coded language is the best CYA in Hollywood (or Texas).

Translation: We need some fat people to make fun of!

Crazy parents were the best part of the previous TF movies, right? Fuck robots -- funny parents is where it's at!

Okay, that needs to be movieverse Oil Slick.
Macross7
Its like Bay can't cast a single person in a movie without fanboys searching to find some sort of racism or sterotype in everything.
Doug
I'm not surprise they are calling for young attractive women to sign up for cast. But they should ask those oil rig guys from the series "Black Gold" from TruTV to be in the movie.
Dormamu
I have officially lost hope. It's like every movie has to be like an unfunny episode of Benny Hill with Transformers in the background.

Fixed. I'd like to agree with you about the fact that we're whining about this, and granted, this is probably an everyday occurrence in HollyWeird, but unfortunately we have three prior hackneyed movies to go upon to see what the script writers and director Michael Bay thinks is entertaining to the masses. It's not the first time. And yes, I will go see it, but I can't help but feel that there's a lot of stereotyping that occurs with these big budget productions from the same team. I get it, when you have a formula that looks like National Lampoon, you can attach the name to everything as long as it has some T&A. This is what the franchise movies however are turning into, and it's kind of grating that something we all enjoy that has a completely different meaning is boiled down to 'Run Fatboy Run' (with apologies to Simon Pegg).
Kevin XI
How do you get a Texas type face? Do you smear crude oil and cow patties on it and bake it in the sun for 10 hours? I don't really get it. All the Texans I've seen look like anyone else.
samtastic
Very shocking to know Mr. Bay will be exploiting women again!
MV95
I actually think you people would be more happy if the casting call said "We need 400lb, unattractive women. Jeez, it's just a casting call, calm down.
Autovolt 127
I wonder if they'll make any King of the Hill references. Yup.

An Oil Rig Transformer would be cool.
