    Comments star Megan Fox made about director Michael Bay got the actress booted from the last Transformers film and now it looks like the infamously hot-headed director has his sights set on another star that could be the next to get the boot.

    Actor Hugo Weaving, who as you know voiced the villainous Megatron in all three Transformers movies, was recently asked by Collider if Bay had approached him about voicing the character again for the fourth installment of the franchise. Weaving was very candid and said he had not heard from Bay and in fact has never met him in person and the role of Megatron was meaningless to him. He showed up, said some lines he had no idea what they meant and left two hours later. He went on to say that he doesn't regret doing the movie, but he regrets not having more knowledge about the role.

    Not one to keep his thoughts to himself, Bay responded via his personal website that addresses Weaving's comments without explicitly naming names. He starts out by saying, "Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs?". I think we know who that voiceover comment is meant for. Bay goes on to suggest actors should be happy to have a job and especially one that quote pays you more than 98%of the people in America. His challenge to these actors he calls "whiners"? To donate their "unhappy job money" to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an Elephant Rescue in Africa. Bay even says he'll put up his own money and match whatever donation they make. Sounds like the balls now in your court Mr. Weaving, or whichever unnamed actor Bay is referring to.

    One thing's for sure, we're guessing if Megatron ends up making an appearance in the next Transformers movie, it probably won't be Weaving's voice we hear. Transformers 4 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 27th, 2014. So do you think Weaving was out of line or is Bay making too much out of what he said?
