My worst fear for this movie is if the Decepticons get portrayed as monsters in this movie. Make them smart and cunning instead.

The hints lead to them being portrayed as both.

so i guess they are B.S about it ...they already know if frank will be the one.



You do know it takes alot longer to animate something than it does for the voice actor to record the dialogue, and it takes even less to match up the sound in post.

Thats complete crap. Voice actors these days usually have the animation playing while recording their parts for a show or they have atleast seen some of the things the character does so they get the voice right. If they recorded the voices first then half the things coming over from Japan would be coming out daily rather thean every couple of months.

here's a part of apost i put on TFW2005
Hello, Mr. Welker!

You have done a great job voicing Megatron in the G1 Transformers series. I know that Peter Cullen is going to voice Optimus Prime in the new live-action movie. Are you going to participate in it? [snip] I would like to contact Peter Cullen. Do you know how?

Sincerely,
Omeed Mirhakkak

Dear Omeed,

Thanks, I really enjoyed doing that voice and playing a villain for a change. I know I have been asked a lot about the movie, but at the present time I have not been offered any roles. That doesn't mean it's final, they are still doing voice casting. Peter Cullen is a hard man to track down, you might try some of the "Transformer" sites and see if you can get a message to him.

Frank"

I for one would rather have Kaye. Megs seem so much more diabolical as a snooty brit.

I can see them playing up the whole "no voice actor" thing then springing it on us at BotCon for a special fan-only premeire. The build up would go on and on with Megs and Prime fighting then finally, just when Prime looks beaten Megatron finally learns English and in a deep, threatening voice says "It's over Prime..." not telling us who it us until we hear him....
I got money on Kaye. Fits the body they've designed for him.
Scalpel...blood bucket...priest...next patient!

Would ye care fer a wee nip of scotch whiskey?

Yes I am a Cubs fan. You may pity me now.
