I read this news and all I could think about was MEGAN WHYYYYYYYY???
Douchetastic director Michael Bay has announced that A) he’s making continuing to shit on my childhood and making a live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and B) Megan Fox will be part of it. Which, of course, makes anyone who knows anything about their relationship respond with an immediate double eyebrow raise and a muttering of “The FUCK?!”
Bay confirmed the news himself, saying “We Are Bringing Megan Fox Back Into The Family.”
According to Variety, Fox will be playing the role of April O’Neill.
If you don’t know why you should be having a WTF reaction at this bit of news (no, not the TMNT film – but the fact that Fox is working with Bay again), then let me summarize it in a few bullet points:
- Fox’s audition for Bay’s Transformers movies is rumored to have consisted of her washing his car – in a bikini, at his request
- Fox compared Michael Bay to Hitler
- Bay suggested Fox was an ungrateful little bitch
- Michael Bay fired Fox and replaced her for the third Transformers installment
So the only thing that I can think is that Fox is at a point in career where she’s not getting much work and a paycheck is a paycheck. If getting a role means she has to lick Michael Bay’s sac to become relevant again, she ready to suck it up (pun intended.)
