Irish actor Jack Reynor has revealed he is undertaking intense physical training for his role in Transformers 4.
Mr. Raynor told the press “I’m training very intensely at the moment. I’m going to keep that up until we shoot. I’m going to do some different courses, some different things I need to pick up for the film. My character seems to be a race car driver so I’m going to be doing a couple of driving courses and getting out on the track.” He also briefly comments on his audition process and how he nabbed the coveted role. “It was after a film I was doing, ‘The Delivery Man’, with Dreamworks. I went through quite a rigorous audition process out in L.A., and after a certain amount of auditions and meetings with different executives, I managed to pull it off.”
Reynor also told BBC during London Critics’ Circle Awards: “I did [audition], which was an intimidating thing to do, We sat down, we had a long chat one day, which was great. I felt totally comfortable with Michael, he’s a really nice guy, but, you know, in the back of your mind he is such a huge director and he does these really high scale type of films. It can be a bit intimidating, but I went for it as best I could and it came out alright.”
The 20-year-old ‘What Richard Did’ actor – who was hailed by director Michael as the ”real deal” – hasn’t met co-star Mark Wahlberg yet, but admits he greatly admires the ‘Ted’ star. He said ”I haven’t met him before, but I’m really excited. He’s one of my favourite actors. I just think he’s brilliant. I have a huge amount of respect for him as an actor so I can’t wait to get on set with him.”
Michael Bay will direct the next installment in the “Transformers” series, from Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., in association with Hasbro, the film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.
