Mark Wahlberg to Star in 'Transformers 4.' Shia La-who?

By Kate Ward, Hollywood.com Staff

The same day Michael Bay squashed rumors that Mark Wahlberg was chosen to star in Transformers 4, the director confirmed via his website that he had indeed chosen the actor to star in the 2014 sequel to Transformers: Dark Of the Moon. Wrote Bay — who worked with Wahlberg on April 26's Pain and Gain — on his website, ""Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on Pain and Gain and I'm so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers' legacy.""

And Wahlberg is a pretty safe gamble to replace Shia LeBeouf, who starred in the previous three films — the A-list star has proven to be bankable in both action fare (The Departed, The Italian Job) and audience-friendly flicks (The Other Guys). Wahlberg also joins action royalty Dwayne Johnson in Transformers 4. Plus, it seems audience interest is there already — just after making the announcement, Bay's website went down, seemingly from overload. We'll say it again: Shia La-who?
