‘Transformers’ plans casting call on Chinese TV
April 19, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Reality television in China will help cast the next “Transformers” flick.

Backers of the fourth installment in the blockbuster franchise say four people will win roles through the “‘Transformers 4’ Chinese Actors Talent Search Reality Show.”

The televised series will begin airing in June and will be open to professionals and amateurs. Two of the “Transformers” roles will go to professional Chinese actors and two will go to people with no acting experience.

The judges include “Transformers” producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Sid Ganis, former Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president. He now heads Jiaflix Enterprises, which helped broker a production-assistance deal for the film between Paramount Pictures and China Movie Channel.

Starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Michael Bay, “Transformers 4” is due in theaters in June 2014.

What do you think of the pending closure of Tpumps in downtown San Mateo?

Surprised, it was super popular
Makes sense, the shop was too small
Hope they find their way back to San Mateo soon
There are plenty of other boba tea places
Glad, boba drinks make the sidewalks a sticky mess
