Another day, another Star Wars 7 casting rumor. However, this one is a bit different than most since you've probably never actually seen the actor appear in anything... yet.
Word on the net suggests Transformers: Age of Extinction's could be up for a role in ' Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. According to Ain't It Cool News, they have two separate sources which confirm the up-and-coming actor has already snagged a role.
Now, Reynor has probably yet to appear in anything you've actually seen, so unfortunately, we can't be completely prejudice and complain about this potential casting. To date, Reynor has mostly appeared in small scale indie fare from his native Ireland, including titles such as What Richard Did. However, if you were observant you could also have caught him in a small role in 's Delivery Man. Regarding his casting to Transformers 4, had this to say about the young actor:
Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie What Richard Did. This kid is the real deal.
Now, I'm not sure about you, but I don't usually think Bay's and my creative tastes exactly correlate, having said that, I'm willing to give this guy a shot. He's also due to appear beside , and in the upcoming Macbeth - hopefully this proves it's not just Michael Bay who thinks he can act.
So far, Ain't It Cool News are not claiming to know which role Reynor could have been cast in.
