As far as Michael Bay is concerned, she's the new Katherine Heigl.Fox, much as Heigl did about "Knocked Up" two years ago, dared to insinuate that "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," the box-office topper in which Bay directed her, was not the second coming of Shakespeare.

(One of the more endearing facts about this lollipop of the month is that she has a quote from "King Lear" tattooed behind one shoulder.)"I think if you haven't read the script and you go and you see it and you understand it, I think you might be a genius," she said on CBS's "The Early Show" this week."Well, that's Megan Fox for you," Bay replied in The Wall Street Journal.

"She says some very ridiculous things because she's 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do."He then went into "I pulled you out of the gutter and can throw you right back down there, missy" mode."Nic Cage wasn't a big actor when I cast him, nor was Ben Affleck before I put him in 'Armageddon,'" he snorted.

Never mind that both men won Oscars for pre-Bay projects — even if Affleck's was merely for original screenplay — and have suffered credibility concerns post-Bay."Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in 'Transformers,'" he says.

For which the men of People Central are pantingly grateful.'BRUNO' SCHOOL COMES OUT: A high school Advertisementthat was the location for a racy photo shoot with Sacha Baron Cohen's character "Bruno" has broken away from the nation's second-largest school district.

Birmingham High School in Los Angeles already had planned to become a charter school before Wednesday's decision.

The move came one day after officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District disciplined two administrators over violating the district's policy on using the school's name in the film.

Baron Cohen as Bruno, an ubergay Austrian fashion reporter, posed in not-quite-full equipment with high school football players.The charter proposal ends the district's authority over school employees, so the disciplinary action will be moot.

And if the new film does any less business than "Borat," so will this whole incident.SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE: Simon Cowell judges on three television talent shows, but may need to drop one to keep from dropping himself, says his ex-girlfriend."I think all his work is tiring Simon out and he's finding it hard," Terri Seymour told London's Daily Star.

"He'd hate me saying this, but he's not as young as he used to be.

He's got such a tough schedule and at some point, one of the shows will have to give." Besides "American Idol," Cowell, 49, wields his opinions on British TV shows "Britain's Got Talent" and "X Factor." Seymour, still close friends with Cowell, says "we'll just have to wait and see which one" he decides to forgo.WHAT KILLED BILL: David Carradine died of accidental asphyxiation, a medical examiner who performed a private autopsy on the actor has concluded."The cause of death was asphyxiation, an inability to breathe.

Now why that happened is still what we're working on," Dr.

Michael Baden, hired by the late actor's family, told Reuters.

Baden said because Carradine's hands were tied above his head and not behind his back, the "Kill Bill" and "Kung Fu" star was not attempting suicide.

His body was found June 4 in the closet of his Bangkok hotel room."He didn't die of natural causes, and he didn't die of suicidal causes from the nature of the ligatures around the body, so that leaves some kind of accidental death," Baden said.His report did not rule out, nor did it confirm, the possibility Carradine, 72, died of autoerotic asphyxiation.TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Friday, July 3, the 184th day of 2009.
