Transformers 3: Megan Fox Out, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In — Wait, Who?

As you surely already know, Megan Fox won’t be spending her summer with any robots in disguise. Since her official dismissal/resignation/whatever you want to call it, the world (mainly the male world) has been watching Michael Bay to see who could possible replace such a Fox.

Well, it looks like we have our answer: the actress (?) will be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. You know, Rosie, from that thing with the stuff. OK, fine, you got me. Her only IMDB credits are four instances of The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and one episode of Britain’s Next Top Model, on which she was not a contestant.

But what is Bay really trying to say with this choice? Is it a big middle finger to the apparently easily replaceable Megan Fox? Is it an even bigger finger extended toward the whole idea of star power? Or is it just Bay bragging about how he can make a star out of anyone, but only for so long as they stay under his wing (see Jennifer’s Body, Fox’s non-Bay effort)?

To be fair, Michael Bay has worked with Victoria’s Secret ad campaigns, and could have a good working relationship with Rosie. Certainly any functional professional interaction would be better than the Fox-Bay bicker-fest.

But while the choice is being announced Internet-wide, Deadline points out that there’s still a week left for Bay to change his mind, since it’s two weeks till any shooting with the female lead begins. Other frontrunners for the role were models Sarah Wright and Brooklyn Decker, each of whom has some legitimate acting experience. But that might count against them if Bay’s star-maker ego has anything to say about it.
