Now that Mark Wahlberg’s on board, what’s up with the rest of the casting for “Transformers 4?” Well, according to Twitch, Nicola Peltz and Brenton Thwaites are about to sign on to the car and robot fun film.
Peltz, who will play Wahlberg’s daughter, is best known for her role in the misbegotten live action version of “The Last Airbender.” She’ll also be seen in the upcoming “Bates Motel.” Thwaites, who will play her “biker boyfriend,” is an Australian actor who will be seen in “Maleficent” with Angelina Jolie. That’s a March 2014 release, so it will only be a few months before the June 27, 2014 release of “Transformers 4.” In other words, maybe 2014 will be the year of Brenton Thwaites.
No word on what other major roles still need to be filled. If there’s a love interest for Wahlberg, I’m sure director Michael Bay can dig into his list of models to find someone who can stand and look hot.
