Director Michael Bay has confirmed that Irish actor Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) will star in his upcoming Transformers 4.

Director Michael Bay has announced that Irish actor Jack Reynor will star in his upcoming Transformers 4.

Writing on his website, Bay said: "I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg.

"Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that?

"Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie What Richard Did. This kid is the real deal."

Of the new film's plot, Bay said: "This movie takes place exactly 4 years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast.

"This Transformers will feel very different than the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy."
