Not major news like Kelsey Grammer casting, but some tiny casting news from Transformers 4. Apparently, the Auditions for Transformers 4 Chinese Cast are off to a great start. As Yahoo News found out, there is going to be 6 roles available with 2 slots already filled by Li Bingbing and Wu Xiubo.

2005 Boards Member TFtoycollector is bringing us the news that over 50,000 Chinese actors will audition for a role on TF4 and among them some famous actors such as Huang Xiaoming, Chen Kun and top star, Peter Ho.

The names of course are new to Hollywood but in China their reputation precedes them. Casting of Chinese Actors for Transformers 4 is a move to market movies to China where an emerging (and potentially huge) market for Hollywood movies exist. This move is endorsed by both Paramount and Hasbro. We are yet to hear about the Robot Cast of Transformers 4. Director Michael Bay declared that they’ll be bringing in New Characters and Old Characters will go through a “Full Redesign”.

The six Chinese actors will join Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Kelsey Grammer and Stanley Tucci for the upcoming movie. Josh Duhamel meanwhile is said to make Cameo Appearance in Transformers 4

As long as it's not casting in the US, I'm good.

This is such a dumb idea. They'll only get about 5 seconds on screen - if robots are even in the movie. I expect that Bay saying 'Redesigning the robots' means 'Make more humans, make Transformers into humans.'

Imagine if they had done this in America...oh god.

If you get 5 seconds of screen time then what's the point?

"OK, Sheng has won our months-long competition for a part in the new Michael Bay Transformers movie. Now we shall show the footage from his role in the film!"

"HWAAAAAAAHH! *squish*"

"Thank you, and congratulations on your success"

Bay: "We edited that part out of the theatrical release."

The only part he's on the screen un-obscured is the shocking scene.

But you still care enough to share that fascinating fact with us?

Chinese government, gotta love them. The Red Dawn remake was actually worse in this regard.

I am so tempted to make a joke here, but I know it wouldn't end well.

that new footage for the Chinese release of Iron Man 3 was nothing but pointless product placement.

It's safe to say, whatever we get here won't suck as much as the Chinese version.

The title on this news is so misleading. I was really hoping they were going to have a reality show where they get all drunk and belligerent. Or like wipeout or ninja warrior, but transformers related.

The Man Darin approves.

On the plus, Li Bingbing ain't hard on the eyes. Something tells me bay has already bingbinged.
