Left to Right: Peltz, Wahlberg, and Thwaites
Following last month’s announcement that Mark Wahlberg would replace Shia LaBeouf as the protagonist in the Transformers series, Michael Bay has now signed on two young leads to star beside Wahlberg.
According to Twitch, Nicola Peltz and Brenton Thwaites have been cast in roles for ‘Transformers 4.’ While they’re not A-list names yet, the young duo have a lot of potential and some major motion picture experience under their respective belts.
Peltz, best known for a role in ‘The Last Airbender’ and soon to be seen in the Psycho prequel TV series ‘Bates Motel,’ will play Wahlberg’s daughter, with Thwaites set to play her biker boyfriend.
This is extremely big news for these two, as it will obviously be the biggest project they’ve taken part in so far in their young careers. We’ll have to wait and see if the series propels them into stardom like it did for LaBeouf and Megan Fox.
