Transformers 4 casts two young leads

Michael Bay has cast two young actors alongside Mark Wahlberg in Transformers 4 .

Twitch is reporting that Nicola Peltz and Brenton Thwaites have been cast after an extensive auditioning process.

Peltz, best known for a role in The Last Airbender and soon to be seen in Psycho prequel TV series Bates Motel , will play Wahlberg’s daughter, with Thwaites set to play her biker boyfriend.

Thwaites made his name on Home And Away (like Transformers 2 star Isabel Lucas), and has filmed a role in Maleficent , with Angelina Jolie.

Transformers proved to be one hell of a springboard for Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, so expect all eyes to be on this pair in 2014.

It’ll be interesting to see if Bay adds any more A-list names to the call-sheet ( Dark Of The Moon had Frances McDormand and John Malkovich in sideline roles).

Transformers 4 is expected to hit UK cinemas on 27 June 2014.
