Michael Bay Casts Megan Fox In "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle" Movie

Looks like Megan Fox and Michael Bay have kissed and made up following her now-legendary "Hitler" comments.

He has just cast the actress to play April O'Neil in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie he's producing for Paramount.

The news is surprising, considering her firing from the "Transformers" franchise after she publicly blasted the director in Wonderland magazine back in 2009.

"He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad man reputation," she say about working with Bay at the time. "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward."

She didn't stop there.

"He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him. He’s vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he’s a tyrant," she continued. "Shia and I almost die when we make a Transformers movie."

After the comments got picked up everywhere, she got the axe.

"She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry," Bay said about working with Megan while promoting the Fox-less "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." "And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, 'Fire her right now.'"

"Megan loves to get a response. And she does it in kind of the wrong way," he added. "I'm sorry, Megan. I'm sorry I made you work twelve hours. I'm sorry that I'm making you show up on time. Movies are not always warm and fuzzy."

The crew of "Transformers 2" also blasted the actress as "dumb-as-a-rock" and "ungracious" in an anonymous letter posted on the movie's website.

Hope "TMNT" director Jonathan Liebesman fares better than Bay. Good luck!
