LONDON: He was arguably the one who made Rosie Huntington-Whitely a household name when he cast her in Transformers 3.
And the actors of director Michael Bay's new action blockbuster seemed to be appreciating his latest supermodel discovery during filming yesterday, reported the Daily Mail on Thursday.
The 47-year-old has cast Israeli-born Bar Paly in Pain and Gain, alongside The Rock and Mark Wahlberg.
And she certainly appears to have made an impact on set.
The blonde beauty was spotted shooting scenes in a car with The Rock - real name Dwayne Johnson - who looked smitten.
The usual hard man couldn't wipe the smile from his face as he drove the vehicle on a set in Miami as Bar waves her hands in the air.
She was later seen prancing around in a skimpy white bandage dress, which exposed her bright pink bra, and strappy heels.
The blonde plays Sabina Petrescu, an illegal immigrant who fantasizes of becoming the next Marilyn Monroe.
The film, based on a true story, follows two bodybuilders - Mark and The Rock - who find themselves embroiled in a kidnapping scheme.
Monk star Tony Shalhoub plays the target of the plot.
Bar has already shown off her acting skills in The Ruins, The Starter Wife and the upcoming Charlie Sheen comedy A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III.
The movie is set for release next year.
Bay famously replaced Megan Fox for the third Transformers installment, with Rosie, who he had shot in the desert for Victoria's Secret.
