Megan Fox in the Transformers Franchise

Megan Fox’s Casting Process for ‘Transformers’ Was Complicated .Still a valuable commodity after the recent release of 2023’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, Bay’s series adapted from the Hasbro toy brand and cartoon of the same name appeared to be an unlikely contender for a major blockbuster.

The director, off the heels of heavily stylized hits that are unabashedly proud of pure spectacle such as Bad Boys, The Rock, and Armageddon, infused his juvenile and jingoistic sensibilities into his most mainstream bid.

He succeeded in 2007, with the original Transformers spawning four additional sequels that he directed. Sure, the films were lambasted by critics and many viewers as the lowest common denominator of popcorn entertainment, but they were impactful and prone to receiving mᴀss attention.

The series elevated the stardom of Shia LaBeouf and announced the presence of a new celebrity icon and franchise queen in Megan Fox.

Fox relatively unknown upon her casting as Mikaela Barnes, the love interest to series protagonist Sam Witwicky LaBeouf  appeared in a brief uncredited cameo in Bad Boys II as a ʙικιɴι-wearing dancer underneath a waterfall.

She was 15 at the time of filming, and since it was illogical for her to sit at a bar as originally intended, Bay pivoted to have her act as a Sєxually suggestive object.
