Missing Megan

Writer: Roy Lim Jian-Min

The black-haired bombshell born Megan Denise Fox made her movie career debut at the age of 15 by taking a minor role as Brianna Wallace in the Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen movie, "Holiday In The Sun" (2001). Soon in 2004, she starred in "Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen" as Carla, the high school diva alongside Lindsay Lohan. The year 2007 was a great year for Megan Fox as she was cast as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character in the blockbuster movie "Transformers", which became her breakout role. She reprised her role in 2009 sequel "Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen" and subsequently in Transformers III due to be released in 2011. Here's a commentary on her roles in recent movies and also some upcoming ones.

Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen (2003): Megan Fox in her first movie played a supporting role to Lindsay Lohan in a teenage comedy produced by Disney whereby her character has some similarities with Lindsay Lohan as both battled it out to be the most popular in school. Not a strong performance on Megan's hand, losing solidly to Lindsay by a mile.

"Solomon Kane" was No.1 at the Malaysian box office but didn't have a female lead in the movie. In the upcoming June release of the similar "Jonah Hex" (2010), we'll finally get another dose of our Megan as a gun-toting whore in lacy corset. We can't overstate our joy.

Transformers (2007): Megan's Fox in the first Transformers film was largely a sexual presence and she didn't have much to do apart from her opening the bonnet of Samuel James Witwicky's car and the camera moving around her waist. Most of her conversation are one-liners. Still, sex appeal rocks!

How To Lose Friends And Alienate People (2008): Acted as the sexy Sophie Maes in this 2008 film based on a memoir of the same name that wasn't as successful in the U.S. box office. She did however cross the swimming pool wearing only a sheer dress, which must be the only thing most guys can remember about the film.

Transformer: Revenge of The Fallen (2009): Most attribute the critical failure of this sequel to the industry's Guild strike that took place before the completion of the script but our dear Megan gets another run-out nevertheless. What does she do? You guessed it – walk around in skimpy outfits while seducing our hero.

Jennifer's Body (2009): Playing a cheerleader turned man-eater, this movie wasn't as great as the trailer suggested but watching Megan as a beautiful, powerful demon was worthwhile for some, despite being totally out-acted by co-star Amanda Seyfried. We'll best remember this as The Movie You Thought Megan Fox Would Be Topless In But Wasn't.

Hope & Faith (2004-2006): This was Megan Fox before she was THE Megan Fox. She was Sydney Shanowski, a vain and ditzy but nevertheless sweet-looking girl in a TV sitcom that ran for three seasons.

Two & Half Man - Season 1 - (2004): Megan Fox as a guest stars as Prudence the niece of Bertha the housekeeper of Charlie Harper in the episode titled "Camel Filters And Pheromones" whereby Prudence help her aunt in cleaning the house and gets Charlie and Alan all sexcited.

You might not have heard of Passion Play (2010) yet. The film features Megan Fox as a caged circus freak with wings who is saved by Mickey Rourke's character, a troubled trumpet player who finds redemption after saving Fox's character from a gangster played by Bill Murray. This is a picture that has been circulating online – is that really Megan? We're just hoping the movie makes it here!
