Judging from his obscure debut as the lead singer of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, no one could have predicted that 20 years later Mark Wahlberg would become one of the most solid actors in Hollywood. Born and raised in a tough Boston neighborhood, Wahlberg did not even have any formal training as an actor when he decided to try his hand at acting. Living in Boston which is far from the media hubs such as New York and Los Angeles, he started as a supporting actor in low budget action movies. Come 2016 and he has some of the highest grossing action comedies such as 'The Other Guys 'and 'Ted I' and 'II' on his resume.

Wahlberg is selected as the Transformers 5 lead actor as Cade Yeager. Wahlberg had rejected the Transformers 5 lead role in 2014 but when Michael Bay declared his availability for the project, Wahlberg decided to accept Paramount Studio’s offer and joined the cast.

Michael Bay has uncharacteristically remained very tight-lipped about the Transformers 5 plot. There is a lot of speculation going on about the Transformers 5 Unicron villain return and the movie being more like a Lord of The Rings Trilogy than a sci-fi flick. Michael Bay himself has joked that he might have to channel his inner Peter Jackson during the shoot in order to make this movie successful. It might however be the worst kept secret in Hollywood because everyone interested in the movie seems to be sure that Unicron is going to be the main villain.

The lead protagonists (Mark Wahlberg and Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime) have been decided but a ton of other roles still need to be filled. One of the names that keeps popping up in Transformer 5 updates is Stephen Merchant. The American audiences might not be very familiar with Merchant but he is best known in Britain as the co-creator of hit BBC drama The Office with Ricky Gervais. The Office went on to become one of the most popular BBC series and propelled Gervais to international stardom. Merchant’s recruitment will continue the Hollywood trend of having quirky Brits as comic sidekicks in Hollywood movies such as Simon Pegg in Mission Impossible or Steve Coogan in Tropic Thunder.

Teenage YouTube sensation Isabela Moner who is already cast member of Hundred Things To Do Before High School has confirmed that she will be a part of the Transformer 5 cast.

She confirmed that she'll star in the film with Mark Wahlberg via her twitter.
