Victoria's Secret model to replace Megan Fox in 'Transformers 3'?

Rosie Hear that? It’s the sound of men everywhere cursing that they aren’t Michael Bay.

After Megan Fox was dropped as Shia LaBeouf's love interest in "Transformers 3," Bay has the oh-so-difficult task of finding a starlet suitable to fill her skimpy outfits.

Now there's speculation that Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who apparently read for the role last week, is the front-runner.

Not too surprising, right? Huntington-Whiteley's impressive acting chops have already been seen down the runway as she pretends those stiletto heels aren't painful to strut in during all those televised "Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows." 

Also on the rumored short list with Huntington-Whiteley is Sarah Wright, who appeared in the critically acclaimed -- er, panned -- film "The House Bunny," and Brooklyn Decker, who is the reason dudes everywhere are glued to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Sorry, Heidi!

Paramount began production on "Transformers 3" earlier this month in Los Angeles, so Bay might want to hurry up with the casting.

I feel so sad that Megan Fox left 'Transformers 3'. Now it's will be Worst movie of all. Fans will remember Megan Fox.
BUt i know Transformers make a lots of money without Megan It's sad.

PLEASE Megan Fox come back to movie.

it's could be last movie of Transformers. Maybe Dictore is bad man.

The whore-ification of young women really isn't cute. It's vulgar.

doesn't everybody just watch Transformer just for the loud, visual effects and Shia only...

lol...i watch just for shia. he was the only redeeming quality of the visual and audio diarrhea known as transformers 2.

Let's see...an accomplished actress or a little, goofy looking twit. Hmmmmm.

who is Michael-la Bay-nes?

I'm sure this woman is a nice person who means well. To pretend she was hired for any acting ability is ridiculous. Bay is a sexist creep; women are eye candy, at best, in his films.
I think this is a blessing in disguise for Fox, who might not be able to show if she can act in better films.

Michelle: bwwaaahahhahaahhaaa....yes, shia does...lol!

The fact the he's in production w/out this part cast is probably a pretty good indicator that the part is pretty consistent w/ nearly every Bay role ever cast: SHALLOW!

Michael Bay's long working relationship directing Victoria Secret commercials and attending Victoria Secret Fashion shows may have established a relationship with some of the brand executives and talent to have facilitated talks with the director but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is NOT officially in any Transformer film!! Producing Insiders have not even listed her in the very private and short list of talent under consideration. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is TOO SKINNY and may be TOO TALL for the role since Shia is not very tall.

It makes no sense to drop Megan fox when they end it Roth finally saying I love you and the couple has surpased so much stuf together. At least give her some part in the movie

I think its rediculous to drop Megan Fox out of transformers 3. The move just doesn't really match without her :( I think she should come back for this role if not there's nothing interesting about it anymore. After all Shia and Megan has gone through so much.
