With Megan Fox out of Transformers 3 the hunt has been ongoing to find an actress to play the new love interest of Shia LeBeouf’s character Sam Witwicky. A model, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is said to be the front-runner for the role according to Deadline. The other two in the running are Sarah Wright and Brooklyn Decker.
All three would would make a lot of sense as the role doesn’t require an established big-name actress since the movie is sold on being Transformers and not on the names involved. Michael Bay has shown the desire in the past to cast unknowns in roles. That is how Megan Fox got her start after all.
