According to the site, Bay has offered the role himself to Reynor after three screen tests. According to the article, Bay was extremely impressed with the actor who beat out five other contenders for the part. While there has been a lot of bogus news around lately, this story feels like it is legit considering the source is an industry level film publication. That said, we will take the news as a rumor for now. Read more about Transformers 4 and Reynor below.
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.

Transformers 4: Lost Age is out in Japan, and TakaraTomy is supporting the movie with both toy commercials, and a themesong for the kids' line of figures: "Kakkoeasy!" It's one of those difficult to translate Japanese wordplays that combines the words "Kakkoii" ("handsome" or "cool-looking") and "Easy" (which is written "i-ji-" in Japanese.) Definitely a song for little kids, but one with the sinister potential to bore into your head and never leave. Keep reading to hear it for yourself and see the toy commericial too!
Autobase Aichi has posted a link to a YouTube video from the Japanese premiere events for Lost Age/Age of Extinction.

Keep reading to see the video! UPDATE: Just added images from the event.
