Heidi Montag says she can fill Megan Fox's 'Transformers' role [poll]

Heidi Montag has let "Transformers" director Michael Bay know, via Twitter, that she's game to fill Megan Fox's shoes as Mikaela Banes in the third installment of the robot-action franchise should the director trip, hit his head on a rock and suffer a dramatic fall-off in casting judgment.

"Michael Bay I love your work! I know what a artistic brilliant genius you are! Cast me in the next Transformers."

(We'd like to point out that those quote marks actually come from Heidi herself, who seems to have cleverly packaged the comment for public consumption -- and we like to daydream that she or whoever speaks English for her made those girly "quote marks" in the "air" with her "hands" while "tweeting." That would be a artistic brilliant thing to do.)

Fox and the franchise have parted ways, it was announced Wednesday, with some speculation ...

... over whether Fox likening her director to Adolf Hitler played a part in her booting (a booting Fox's rep told People was actually the actress' choice). Montag seems to be sticking to the "more flies with honey and plastic surgery" route.

Although Montag's acting chops may in fact be up to the role, relatively speaking, we can't help but think her after-market equipment might slow her down.

The role in this action film may involve running. And we assume viewers would want to see Mikaela's face more than half the time during those scenes.

Then again, we could be wrong.
