Simon Delaney, an Irish actor and director, spoke to the Herald about Jack Reynor landing his leading role in Transformers 4. The article also confirms that Reynor signed a three picture deal.
"We all knew when we were shooting Delivery Man that he [Jack] had done a couple of screen tests and auditions for Transformers, every day we would say: 'Any news?' Jack was actually on set one night, Michael Bay [the director of Transformers] called and he stepped off set to take the call," Simon revealed.
"Everyone was looking through a window, like eager fathers awaiting the birth of their new son, and he came back in and said, 'I got it'. There was a little bit of a party that night."
