Mark Wahlberg Scores A Couple Sidekicks For ‘Transformers 4’

As we reported a couple weeks ago, Mark Wahlberg has been cast as the lead in Michael Bay’s Transformers 4, which sounds like a match made in steroid-ey, explosion-ey heaven, but Transformers is (I guess?) still a series for kids, and Marky Mark is in his 40s. That’s like, totally old! Gross!

Thankfully Transformers 4 will have its own Shia & Megan for the kids to relate to — Brenton Thwaites and Nicola Peltz. Who and who? Well, Brendan looks kind of like Taylor Lautner and Nicola Peltz looks kind of like Selena Gomez, so the tween set should be able to slot them into their fantasies with a minimum of effort.

Filming of Transformers 4 will begin as soon as Peltz turns 18, rendering her many hot pants car-washing scenes totally non-icky.
