Mark Wahlberg Films 'Transformers 4' After Fire on Set

Mark Wahlberg waves to his fans while filming a scene for Transformers 4 on Thursday (June 13) in Austin, Tex.

The 42-year-old actor was joined on set that day by his co-stars Nicola Peltz and TJ Miller.

Earlier in the week, a small fire broke out on set and director Michael Bay took to his blog to shoot down reports that Mark narrowly escaped the flames.

“I’m reading how the news makes everything more dramatic than real life. I guess the truth was just too unexciting. Yes there was a small smoldering fire at a house and no, no one was injured during the fire. And no, no one “just narrowly escaped” as the news dramatically states. A crew member though twisted his ankle after falling in a gopher hole on the ranch,” Michael wrote. “The fire was put out in a brief 15 minutes by a great fire crew on set. It was an attic fire and cause is unknown. No we were not shooting in the attic, we were shooting outside on the ranch.”

The abbreviation for Texas is TX! You all need to do a better job editing.

he’s growing into a respected actor with The Fighter and such.
Does he need the money for another house or something?
why take on a franchise in the middle of it??
weird.

Not the right dude for T4.

i like this guy and support him but lately he’s been making too many movies in too short period of time. i’d suggest him taking a short break from filming and choosing future roles more carefully

@Ghost: Yeah I agree. As much as I like Mark Wahlberg but I think could have gone with either a different actor or just focus manly on the Transformers themselves.
