How exciting! Casting call for Chinese action guy to star in Michael Bay’s Transformers 4 to be released in 2014 has Jiro Wang as lead contender. With 260,000 votes, Jiro Wang is in first place and Peter Ho is currently placing fourth.
It is understood that he has already been notified for the second round of interviews. Taiwan fans site his muscular physique as their number one reason for voting him in to the number one spot. Jiro proudly emphasizes that he has an eight pack and not only a six. :)
Transformers is a widely popular robot film in the United States. “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon,” had sales of more than $145 million in China without any Chinese plot elements. The 4th installment of Transformers will have Chinese elements to capitalize on the vast Chinese market. The film will be shooting many scenes in Chinese cities.
Chinese star Li Bing Bing has already been cast in the film. It would be awesome to see Jiro in an American film!
