Though Heidi Montag made an impassioned plea to director Michael Bay to be Megan Fox's replacement in 'Transformers 3,' it appears another blond is the front-runner for the role. Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is rumored to be at the top of Bay's list to play Shia LaBeouf's love interest in the third film of the hit 'Transformers' franchise, the LA Times is reporting.

Supposedly, the model read for Bay last week. And although she has no previous acting experience, she's a favorite for the role.

Other names on the rumored short list include Sarah Wright (she starred in 'The House Bunny') and Sports Illustrated cover girl Brooklyn Decker.
