Michael Bay announces a surprise piece of casting for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: his old chum, Megan Fox...

It might just be that, contrary to the image that's sometimes portrayed of the man, Michael Bay is a sweet, kind, pussy cat at heart. Once upon a time, you might remember, Megan Fox had some less than uplifting things to say Mr Bay, throwing in phrases like "he's so awkward, so hopelessly awkward" and "he has no social skills at all", along with "he's a tyrant" and "he wants to be like Hitler".

It was regarded that as a result of these comments, which turned up in a magazine interview, that Megan Fox got the heave-ho from the third Transformers movie. And you would have thought that was that.

Surprisingly then, Michael Bay has now announced on his official website that "we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family" in relation to the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Bay is heavily involved in the movie, although it's Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath Of The Titans) who's directing it.

Fox's role in Ninja Turtles hasn't been announced as of yet, but it's widely expected to be April O'Neil. And her return to the world of Michael Bay might just mean that the man himself is a warm, cuddly teddy bear once you peel back the layers. That, or Megan Fox cut her asking price.

Ninja Turtles is set for release next year.

Michael Bay.

WORST. NEWS. EVER.

Yeah, it sounds like they've patched up their differences.
Until she turns up on set for the first day and is told she's actually playing Splinter...

They never argued. Both sides came out and said, it was because in the year between filming 2&3 fox had lost all her "weight" which bay told her it was like looking at 2 shias when they were facing sideways lol

I'm guessing that she's playing the equivalent of April O'Neill, who befriends the space-turtles to battle Nazi-Shredder from Dimension X. Hah! No chance this movie will be worth seeing.

Or at least until the new jive-talking turtle twins are announced.

Considering the fact it's Megan Fox in a Michael Bay movie, I dread to see the relationship between her character and Donatello's. I mean it's OK in the cartoon show, because you know it's not gonna lead anywhere, but this... DX

Well, Bay is making it so we already know this film is going to be a piece of s**t. At least now we will have something pretty to look at while our childhood dreams are shattered in front of our very eyes.

Sound familiar?

I think Krang would be a better part for her.

Actually considering her acting ability, she may get away with playing the 'ooze'.

Wasn't it actually Spielberg that insisted she was fired, not Bay?, either wat its bad news, the girl can't act?.

She should play Erma, n the chick from transformers 3 should play April o'neal. Then they have a cat fight and Ooze falls all over them... And they become mutant cat women! Not like on Dark Stalkers, more like that weird werewolf on Thriller. And then the ancient cat and turtle feud (as explained on Rocko's Modern Life) is revived, and they mysteriously disappear at the grand opening of Splinter's Chicken on a Stick truck at the Puerto Rican Day Parade. N BOOM, Michael Bay

SHE SHOULD PLAY SHREDDER

Well...at least the acting will be good! (Sarcasm)

1.) Michael Bay can't direct. 2.) Megan Fox can't act.

My God this is just awful news I'm getting fed up of these so called director/writers shitting on my childhood memories. I'm not a fan of this mad as he's already crapped on Transformers. I'd pay him to leave & get someone who knows what they are doing. Clueless

Of course she does... ~sigh~
Mr. Bay seems to be turning into the Tex Richman character from the Muppet Movie with a personal vendetta to see all 80's television shows crash and burn all over the hearts of their fans.

I was with you up until the "something pretty to look at" bit.

Just when I thought that I was over this new reboot and didn't care what they did to the franchise they drop this shite. Pathetic

To be fair, that can't be worse than the random reggae and rapping on the direct-to-video Christmas special ...

Well, maybe he figured she helped distract some audience members frm h9w bad "Transformer" was, that she can do the same here?

Either way I ain't seeing it.
