I´m very surprised as to why The Rock got an offer for Transformers 4? Mark Wahlberg makes sense to me at least while The Rock in a Transformers movie would just be weird. It might just be me, but when it was announced that Marky Mark would be starring in Transformers 4, my eyes lit up and I became instantly excited. Largely because for some odd reason, I can see Mark Wahlberg in a Transformers flick.

Why does Wahlberg make sense and not Johnson?

I just do not see him a good fit for one. While I might be wrong. I feel that The Rock is good enough of an actor to play the lead character in a blockbuster, yet I believe that he would bring the movie down a bit as he is not nearly as good of an actor as Wahlberg is. Yet you never know.

I guess that I´m still not sold on The Rock´s acting, as most films he plays the lead character in, are not that good, largely due to him. Even the acting aside, physically I see Wahlberg being a better fit for a Transformers film, Dwayne is just too buff and we would most likely end up seeing him fight one of those damn things... a decepticon... most likely.

I see what you're saying. I too like Wahlberg more than I like Johnson. I guess we'll have to see what the role actually is to determine whether or not he would of fit the role.

The rock is a legend like Arnie. Everybody wants him in there film but he can only do so much and he sadly turns a lot down
