The newcomer, Jack Reynor, will join Mark Wahlberg in the fourth film, due out in 2014.

The US director announced on his website: "I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg.

"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."

The director also dismissed reports that Transformers 4 would be a reboot.

But he said: "This movie takes place exactly four years after the war in Chicago. The story makes a very natural transition, and reason as to why we have a whole new cast," he said.

"This Transformers will feel very different then the last three. We are embarking on a new trilogy."
