Michael Bay has become such a HUGE director in Hollywood that he can get away with having a hot woman wear a bikini while washing his car and call it an “audition.” At this point in the game, he’s apparently bypassing the car wash and just going straight to lingerie fashion shows to find his newest “talent.”

Thanks to a heads up by our amigos at Latino Review, the website Geek Week has acquired the exclusive scoop on who may be have been selected to replace Megan Fox the quitter in Transformers 3. Her name is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in while our male teenage audience has a chance to Google her image (yes I am well aware that has a double meaning in this instance).

Miss Huntington-Whiteley has an extensive film background that consists of mainly four appearances in her underwear.  For the past four years she has been on the runway as a lingerie model for Victoria’s Secret, although she did briefly appear in an episode of Britain’s Next Top Model.

Now, all of this should be filed in the “grain-of-salt” folder until something official is released by the studios because we all know how these inside sources work. Still, if this turns out to be true, then it will be interesting to see how the fanboy community reacts. My guess is it will be something like “eh, she’s hot but who cares.”

According to Fandango’s poll last summer, most people couldn’t give a rat’s pajamas about what actors or actresses are playing the human roles in the Transformers movies. No big shock there since most people just want to see robots kick each other’s gas tanks all over the screen. It will be interesting though to see how writer Ehren Kruger (The Brothers Grimm) will dispose of Fox’s character and introduce Huntington-Whiteley’s character. That is if she is indeed attached to the project.

I’m thinking that maybe Bay will just wing it and blow up a building and have Shia LaBeouf’s character, Sam Witwicky, run towards screaming “NO! Mikaela is in there!” while Bumblebee holds him back. Then BOOM! another explosion as we see Mikaela’s daisy duke shorts go flying into the air and land at the feet of Huntington-Whiteley’s character. She picks them up and tosses them aside; Bay cues heavy, guitar driver stripper music as she walks towards Witwicky, making him and every other male between the ages of 18 – 35 forget about what’s her name.

What do you think about lingerie model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley possibly replacing Megan Fox from the first two Transformer films?

Transformers 3 opens, sans the girl who danced in a bikini in the movie Bad Boys 2 at age 15, next summer 2011.
