The first thing we need to do for Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is get her a nickname. Because having to type Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is going to get a little old. That said, she is owed congratulations for catching the eye of director Michael Bay — a man who is no stranger to the world of super models — and landing a starring role in Transformers 3.
Geek Week is reporting that Huntington-Whiteley has been cast as the replacement for Megan Fox in the next round of big ass robots fighting their war on our planet. The news came through this evening that the model — who is currently dating Jason Statham — will play a yet to be announced character. Hopefully she can use said relationship with Mr. Statham to get some sweet moves or something. Or at the very least, hopefully she can find a way to deliver lines that don’t appear to be painful.
Transformers 3 is due in theaters July 1, 2011.
