Hopefully this cements Frank Welker's role as a main Decepticon villain. I think he's more than proven himself with his amazing voice acting work in Transformers Prime.

well maybe Mr. Bay should have hired someone more familiar and appreciative of the franchise in the first place, some one currently playing megatron who does a killer job at it and does sound more bad ass than the G1 version and would make the movie megatron sound better ....you know who... lets hear it for Frank Welker!!

• I was on a 10 minute smoko break. If i'm going to read a book, I like to settle down and get comfortable for a minimum of half an hour.
• I'm a member of the staff, have to read things to make sure there's no nasty name calling going on and whatnot.
• The fanbase has been segregated for a very long time. Truck, monkey, flames, no flames ... don't see any of it changing any time soon for better or for worse.

And again, bring on Welker, but don't expect too much from him. He still has to read off a questionable script.

Hyperbolic whining? No one is forcing you to see them? Wow, thanks, I never knew these things.

The subject is regarding Bay being a moron. We're just members of a transformers board speaking on topic. Just because you don't like what we say, you get all personally offended (i'm sure). Theres enough hate thrown out there for hasbro, for animated, theres hate on just about anything on this forum. Stop tryin to act enlightened for having "moved on", which you haven't because, if I remember correctly, you like the movies.

There might be lots of different views on stuff in the fandom, truck not monkey, no flames, as you said, but this is about the only area where people seem to complain about the complainers at such a magnitude, and I am sick of reading it. Especially when many of us didn't even diss the movie, we were just dissing bay for what he said. WHICH IS ON TOPIC.

You don't see Ryan complaining about the complainers. People say their part and shovel on, if you can't do the same, thats your problem. I won't say anything else since this has been a huge derailment. I just wanted to bring light to it so you don't get away with your snarky quips that do nothing but hurt the fandom.

And had the website not caught it, we wouldn't have known any better.

Be interesting to see if Bay makes another statement in a day or so.

Say what you will, but getting script from agent, auditioning, getting the part of megaton (most powerful villain in TF history) means little information? If that was so, as an actor (even novice actors let alone weaving) he needs to pick up and read supplementary materials for the part. There are tons of comics, novels, cartoons to go by. I may not like the directions of the second movie, but weaving needs to stop complaining. If he was just not happy about the artistic aspect of acting, then He shouldn't take the part. Artistic styles has to do with personal reflections not online ranting. Personally, I think weaving was just bitter he didn't expand his social network. Like he said, he "didn't even meet bay." If you're so concern with the artistic aspect of acting then who cares if you've met the director or not. It'll be nice and courteous if bay had met him, but not a requirement. We all know its about he money. Weaving doing a stunt he did t care about and getting 200,000. And bay makes millions.

I don't blame Bay. Hugo just wasn't into the role and according to him it was meaningless. This isn't the firs time he's said this either. I remember an interview a while back where he said something simular. He wasn't a TF fan as a kid. He never watched them growing up. To him this was just another job. And that's fine. There's nothing that states he have to be a fan of the paticular role you do. Your going to like some, your going to loath some, you going to hate some, and some you just don't care about.
Personally, i thought he did a good job. He's an actor. In this case, a voice actor. He did quite well i thought.
Speaking of voice acting, while i admit I didn't read all 10+ pages, but in the few pages i did, it seemed people were surprised that Hugo never even meet Bay, and some even held that against him. (Bay) Well in terms of voice acting, its not uncommon to never meet your director, never meet anyone in the crew, or cast. The realitiy of it is that its just not a requirement. Hugo said himself that he really didn't have time to do the first movie but ended up fitting in between his play. It is what it is.

Not everyone is a fan. At some point people need to realise that this is just a job for them. And no, being a fan of the source material doesn't mean that your going to be a better than the professionals.

Michael Bay has completely overreacted here and I don't blame Hugo Weaving for saying what he did in the slightest.

Here's the thing. Michael Bay has never attempted to make his TF movies even remotely deep compared to some of the lore that the likes of Simon Furman has produced. Countless people have defended it by saying you need to "switch off as a fan" to enjoy it. Bay himself has a reputation for only caring about explosions, car chases, half naked women and "making things look cool" when it comes to movies.

Now compare a role in that sort of movie to some of Hugo Weaving's work. You can't begin to compare his role in say "Oranges and Sunshine" to his role as Megatron. Certainly the character is iconic, but people need to ask themselves- is the role iconic in those movies (ie are we talking about a war-based character on par with say, the writings of Tolstoy)? If people are honest, they'd be forced to answer "no". Let's face it, spending 2 hours in a recording booth to record dialogue for a an entire part in a movie, is hardly going to be something you can sink your teeth in.

People criticise Weaving for only caring about roles he has alot of screen time in. However if you were an actor, then wouldn't the more meaningful roles be the well written ones you had the most chance to sink your teeth into, to immerse yourself into, to connect with the most.

Considering that, how can people be surprised that Hugo Weaving wouldn't rate playing Megatron that highly compared to some other roles? Furthermore if Michael Bay has a problem with that, then he needs to seriously rethink the types of movies he makes.

EDIT: It's interesting comparing the comments in this interview to the ones he made here regarding his work on Oranges and Sunshine.

I really hope Transformers 4 tanks badly, so the rights holders will give the live-action franchise a well-deserved rest and then try something different. At this point even Paul W. S. Anderson would be an improvement.

Bay's Transformers films epitomize "vulgar". You know you're in trouble when an animated series aimed at children have more nuance and sophistication than a live action film ostensibly for adults.

In a couple of hours, Hugo Weaving made enough money to pay off my house, car, and have enough left over to buy half the Primus Packages and hotel rooms at Botcon. That voice could have been anyone, I certainly never cared. Hell, they could have given that job to John3.0. he would have put that money to good use and it would have been a huge honor for him to boot. Hugo didn't need Bay to make him look stupid. He did that all by himself. Oh, but the whole "save the elephants" thing, I dunno what's up with that. How about matching funds for needy humans?

Fairly certain that "anyone" wouldn't have been able to command the money that Weaving did.

You know ... years in the industry, lots of acclaim and awards for multiple movies ... that sort of thing kind of helps to bump up the pay rate.

Funny how it is actually Weaving who is taking alot of flak and not Bay. I mean Bays' comments were rather childish. Weaving were just described how he felt about his job and most likely any actor could say the same. The difference is that some actors (like Weaving) can afford to say so in public. But he didn't call Bay a douchebag or a-hole (though he should have), so I don't know why Bay is so pissed of. Perhaps it got something to do with the fact that Bay can't take any critique :-?

And for those of you who are criticising Hugo for making lots of money for 2 hour job: You really think Bay is doing this just for fun and charity? I mean his job isn't that terrible either. So lets not be hypocritical here. Someone could say that they are All overpaid.

Untalented? I'd like to see you go out and do better.

Well, I bet some of us could do a lot better job. Besides it doesn't matter. This argument could also be used to defend just anything and anykind of sh*t. "You don't like this TF toy? Well too bad, 'cos you aren't a toy maker, so you can't criticise it. Shut you mouth" :lol:

I was really going to let all this TF4 hype just pass by and not care about this, but this Bay dude is just too annoying c*nt [-(

i can kinda relate to bays point.

i remember when film directors made films that had character devleopment, plots, drama, intrigue and followed a progressive naritave arc to tell a story which credibly transfered the core tennants of an already established universe into a new medium in order to facilitate whats defined as "an adaptation".

instead of just blowing shyte up around pseudo porn stars.

To be honest, i really don't like Michael Bay, but he is absolutely correct. Mr. Weaving's blatant disregard for the role is his opinion and all - i get that. But its like "he didn't hafta be an asshole about it." lol

IN the grand scheme of things though, it doesn't really matter. Theres plenty of people who can voice a very believable Megatron (or Galvatron for that matter).

And how was he doing that? He was being interviewed in relation to the movie Cloud Atlas and he had a question thrown at him about Transformers. What was he meant to do, lie? He wasn't going out of his way to trash talk the movie - he was merely giving an honest and polite answer.

It's not his fault the movies are pretty sub par due to Bay's directorial style (or lack thereof).
