We haven’t given you any updates on the Transformers 4 movie in over six months, although honestly there hasn’t been much. Allow us to make amends by serving you up some hot-off-the-presses casting news and more from the director himself, Michael Bay.

As we reported all those months ago, the next Transformers movie will feature a new cast and some changes to the metalheads themselves. Since that time, Bay has confirmed that Mark Wahlberg will be starring in the movie. And here’s what he reported to the world today on his website:

I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark WahlbergJack 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. »
