Gregg Berger In Transformers Prime?

CBR just posted an article covering Activision's SDCC 2012 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron panel, which featured voice actors Peter Cullen, Nolan North, and Gregg Berger. During the panel North mentions working with Cullen and Berger on both Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and Transformers Prime. As usual this should be taken with the normal grain of salt until officially confirmed, but IDW did announce a Dinobot tie-in comic for Transformers Prime season three and Grimlock, who Berger is famous for voicing, is a very high profile character at the moment thanks to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Will Berger be joining Transformers Prime? If so, will he voice Grimlock or an all new character?

The full article can be found by clicking here.

Berger spoke about voicing Grimlock, stating in the Dinobot's voice that he was "driven by aggression!" Without any filters to get in the way, Grimlock's strength has a great capacity, even if it's slightly out of his control. Berger thought it was incredible role for an actor to play. He also did a little bit of "Me king!" in Grimlock voice, much to the delight of the crowd, while explaining what a great ally he was to the Autobots team.

North, the iconic voice of Nathan Drake from the "Uncharted" games, explained how much fun it was voicing both Autobot (Cliffjumper) and Decepticon (Bruticus), changing tones for each character. He jokingly poked at Berger in his Bruticus voice, similar to his Grimlock role. He also felt honored to watch Berger and Cullen work, both on this project and the animated "Transformers Prime" series.

The mere thought of Grimlock in Transformers Prime makes me giddy. :grin:

Hmm, they did say Nolan North is going to be on Prime, so it's possible he bumped into Berger while doing some voicing of his own! :grin:

If Berger's in it as Grimlock, then more power to him! We need more connections made between the two time periods, and using he same voice actors from both eras is a brilliant way to do just that. Thus far, only Optimus has kept his ancient history voice in the present. I want more characters to do as well (which is why I'm begging for Johnny Young Bosch to reprise his role as Bumblebee should Prime Bumblebee ever get his voice back).
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Johnny Yong Bosch would be perfect for Prime Bumblebee! ;)

Yes! Thank you! Finally someone who agrees. :D

Nothing against Dan Gilvezan, but the personality he always gives with his Bumblebee voice just does not fit with the personality of Prime Bumblebee. JYB, however, nailed the role in WFC, and would be a great fit for Prime BB.

I don't know. For some reason, I can't picture the Prime incardination (not WFC, for the record) of Bee speaking (thanks for that, Bay). The way his "mouthplate/mask-thingy" is arranged...unless they intend to make a mouth behind that, like in RB Bee & Prime Bulkhead.

JYB would be a great voice for Bee in Prime. I would be looking for a deeper voice, but to connect the games to Prime even further would be applaud-worthy.
