Reynor, who auditioned for the part three times, was offered the lead by Bay himself after the ‘Armageddon’ filmmaker was impressed by Reynor’s performance in Irish feature ‘What Richard Did’.

Bay initially tested five actors for the part: Reynor, Luke Grimes, (Brothers & Sisters), Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova), Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening) and Hunter Parrish (Weeds).

A source close to IFTN says Bay is keen for Paramount Pictures, which is financing the film, to agree with his casting decision, and an announcement is expected in the coming days.

Reynor will take over the lead role initially played by Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the original three films, which are based on the Marvel comic series. Reynor is expected to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character’s daughter.

The official TakaraTomy PR Twitter account for Transformers has posted a new photo of Army Camo Hound, a recolor of the Generations Voyager mold that is part of a special box set with the Japanese home video release of Age of Extinction. It's not a huge difference from the mass release in either country, but it looks pretty nice and should be a nice bonus for those who want the Japanese Blu-Ray version of Transformers 4.

Michael Bay's official account has posted a 10-minute outtake reel to Vimeo! Plenty of behind-the-scenes action to be seen, along with a couple of cameras falling victim to the master of explosions. Also notable: Kelsey Grammer covered in blood and ash, saying "I was this close!" Keep reading to see it for yourself!
A Japanese fan has reviewed Advanced Series Armor Knight Optimus Prime on YouTube! AD31 has been the focus of a lot of attention this week, and with good reason.
