Megan Fox is many things esteemed thespian is not one of them. She was as you all should recall recently fired from Transformers 3 after making horrible comments about Michael Bay in the press including such lovely comments as he is ‘hitler on set’ and ‘lacks social skills’.
Considering he is rumoured to have had her wash his car in a bikini on video as part of her casting I guess we can not blame her for not having the nicest things in the world to say. Michael Bay obviously gets the last laugh as one of the most bankable director / products in Hollywood.
Let’s take a quick minute and look at Megan Fox’s acting career so far in the best way possible. Let’s be honest we all talk about Megan Fox, and google her for one primary reason… she is a hot little package with looks to kill and were it not for that I would not be writing about her and she wouldn’t be catching the eye of directors for various dubious roles. Here is her career recapped with photos to make it a little less traumatic.
: In Jonah Hex Megan Fox played a sultry prostitute and you guessed it in this role she packed some heat and kicked some ass alongside Josh Brolin. Megan Fox’s role was clearly sold on the premise of little clothes and witty jargon but let’s be honest this movie sucked for alot of reasons and Megan Fox was only a small part of it.
Transformers was Megan Fox’s big break and its a role I actually like her in. I found her witty banter between her character and Shia’s refreshing and fun. Megan Fox might like to bag on Michael Bay in the press but I think Michael bay did a very good job at making her character Mikaela Barnes about much more then eye candy.
Megan Fox went on from Transformers to win the title role in Jennifer’s Body a teen horror comedy from the creator of Juno. Considering the writing talent behind this film and the stand out cast which included Amanda Seyfried this film had the potential to be a goliath. Unfortunately Megan Fox was upstaged by her co-star and although it featured an ultra-erotic lesbian make out scene even that could not save this movie from being just short of a bomb.
Megan Fox’s Bad Boys 2 role was a really key one. So key in fact I am not sure how many people realize she was even in that film. She has an un credited role as a ‘dancing bikini girl’. Really if you are as hot as Megan Fox is you would certainly hope for more important roles but as fans it never hurts when they make the clothing as optional and elusive as her acting can be at times.
In Passion Play which I have not seen yet Megan Fox plays I believe a stripper and co-stars with the incredibly talented Mickey Rourke who after a long hiatus from acting is seeing his career in a full revival after starring as the villain Whiplash in Iron Man 2. Whether Passion Play is good or bad the marketing materials from the studio have made a point of demonstrating we will get to see a whole lot of Megan Fox in various naked poses.
I for one was not a big fan of Transformers 2. It had its moments but overall I felt it was a film that was top rushed and lacked polish. Frankly there are very few good things I can say about Transformers 2 so let’s sum it up with it has giant robots, over the top action and Megan Fox in scantily clad outfits running around
Megan Fox has many more films lined up for her to take a stab at including a Judd Apatow Comedy ‘This is Forty’, Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘The Dictator’ directed by Larry Charles and the comedy ‘Friends With Kids’.Blackberry 9100 Pearl 3G Unlocked Phone with 3 MP Camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Optical Trackpad and GPS - International Warranty - Black
Loosing the role in Transformers 3 certainly generated a lot of negative buzz but if Megan Fox can continue to evolve as an actress she will have a long and prosperous future in the Hollywood Machine.
