Whether she was fired or left on her own accord, the bottom line is that Megan Fox is no longer a member of the "Transformers" franchise. Which means Shia LeBeouf's Sam Witwicky needs a new love interest.
Enter Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Much more agreeable on set, but can she act?
Since the British model and actress joined the cast for the upcoming "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," speculation has centered on whether she'd be an improvement on the theatrically-maligned Fox. While we won't know for sure until the film's July 1st release date, a brand new clip has revealed her in the role for the first time.
It also unveils Patrick Dempsey's "Transformers" debut -- much to Witwicky's dismay.
Does Huntington-Whiteley past muster in this brief debut? Let us know in the comments.WATCH:
