Last February it was announced that Michael Bay would continue his involvement with the Transformers movie franchise by helming a fourth instalment in the blockbuster series, but it now looks like the Pain & Gain director is set to extend his stay even further.

Having taken to his official site today to reveal that up-and-coming actor Jack Reynor (Dollhouse, What Richard Did) has joined the cast of Transformers 4, Bay also confirmed that the as-yet-untitled sequel will be the first instalment in a new trilogy...

I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously, who does that? 

Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie What Richard Did. This kid is the real deal. Transformers 4 is not a reboot. That word has been floating around on the net. »
