Michael Bay Casts Another Israeli Model Named Bar

Michael Bay Casts Another Israeli Model Named Bar

Michael Bay has found his next leading lady in a model named Bar.

The 47-year-old director has cast Bar Paly – who like Bar Refaeli comes from Israel – in Pain and Gain, opposite Mark Wahlberg and Monk‘s Tony Shalhoub.

The “film follows a group of bodybuilders who engage in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida,” Variety reports, adding that Bar would play Sabina Petrescu, an illegal immigrant and former beauty queen dreaming of becoming the next Marilyn Monroe.

Michael previously worked with another model, Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley, in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

    Bay is so disgusting. I’m sure the good actresses know what a d*bag he is, so that’s why he can only cast brain dead models
