    1. There aren't really ANY lead actresses who are ugly, except maybe Sarah Jessica Parker :p 

    2. Mikaela NEEDED to be "smoking hot" because the whole point was that she was one of those untouchable super babes from high school.

    I guess the movie will be off schedule now. How many girls you know who are attractive under 30 and rides a motorcycle skillfully? It'll take them forever to find one and actually looking for a job doing this. They're better off CGI'ing it or superimposing a pretty face on a guy's body. :)

    If she is to do the filming at one of the PA locations ( Bethlehem was it? ), I know a girl that fits the role and lives close. I should call her up.

    Well, as much as I liked the fact that in TF1, or the script at least, every TF had the same generic "Moustache Man" as their driver (we saw him in three different Decepticons, presumably the Autobots had him, too), it'd be neat to see drivers reflective of their personalities, a' la IDWverse.

    On the other hand, this might just be some hot chick Sam's roomie checks out as she rides by. I thought "hologram" just like everyone else, but it's probably the more unlikely possibility.

    My first thought was arcee, and I love that they are including her, specially to see how they portray her in combat.

    so i guess it's still too early for anything interesting about Tf2 right? with the last movie at this point we already started to see some previous forms of the designs, now we have castings for biker chicks...

    Oh yes! It's my turn to show up at TRANSFORMERS 2!

    All I have to do is learn how to ride a motorcycle and turn into a 30 years old woman!

    Does sort of make you think that maybe they are going for Arcee this time around since you don't see a lot of motorcyles going down the road without a rider.

    As to a female Transformer, well why not? On the first film we were told they did this to appeal to group X, they did that to appeal to group Y, and they did the other thing because they thought group Z would watch the movie. Seems like it would appeal to female viewers to have female characters that were more than just a girlfriend role since the girlfriend was the only one to get into being part of the action and action is the director's strong point.

    Plus it's not like G1, Beast Wars, Cybertron or Animated felt any need to explain why you have both male and female robots so why should the film bother. Are you going to be upset they didn't explain why she is female or are you just going to enjoy it if she does something cool?

    No we don't, not for sure, but I am hoping she appears. If this is a real casting call and not a snippit to get people on the wrong track, all we know is there will be a scene(s) requiring a female on a cycle. They want a hologram on Arcee they could CGI it.

    I was thinking along the same lines only a human rider. Same has bumblebee and some new hot young chick has Arcee. That would be sweet!!!!!

    This is a casting call for only one day of filming. That's only enough for a quick cameo. I like the idea of her being on the motorcycle Arcee scans and Arcee therefore picks up the female traits from her, but that doesn't seem likely. At least, not likely the script writers would put it in. And the idea is reminiscent of RiD Scourge's origin: scanned Optimus, a tanker truck, and a human all at once.

    I'm thinking it's more of a role similar to that of the girl in the car whose steering wheel turned into a facehugger.

    If I recall from the DVD commentary, the "moustache man" scenes from TF1 were all filmed in only a day or two.

    And they would never just CG a hologram rider for Arcee, it would be too expensive. It would be much cheaper just to pay some girl 100$ and film her driving around on a motorcycle for a few hours.

    Remember, they don't film a movie in chronological order. If some actors are only available certain days, they'll film all their scenes in a bunch. It's more effective than to have actors (not to mention extras like the moustache man) come back for multiple shoots.

    Peter Cullen as Prime's holographic driver, that would rule.
