A little voice talent update for yesterday's Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon news, Constance Zimmer will be voicing a Transformer. Yesterday's Variety article listed her, but didn't mention who or what type of character she would be voicing. She joins Will Friedle, who will reprise his role as Bumblebee, Darren Criss as Sideswipe, Mitchell Whitfield as Fixit, and Ted McGinley in a yet to be revealed role.
Zimmer tweeted the following earlier today:
I'm a Transformer!!! But I can't tell u much more, yet...
We told you earlier here on Seibertron,com about the new animated Transformers series with the extremely original title of Robots in Disguise, bringing together visual elements from Transformers: Prime (which already had Animated and Movieverse) and Animated - check it out here. We also have the new official logo, via the official Transformers Facebook page, below!
Variety wrote:“Transformers: Robots in Disguise” will be the name of Hasbro’s new animated series starring its shape-shifting characters.
Series will introduce a redesign of Bumblebee and introduce new Autobot characters Sideswipe and Fixit (see above).
Criss will voice Sideswipe, while Whitfield will bring Fixit to life.
Show takes place years after “Transformers Prime,” when Bumblebee is summoned to save Earth from a new faction of Decepticons and assembles a rogue team of young Autobots that includes a rebel bad boy bot, an elite guard cadet, a bombastic Dinobot and hyperactive Mini-Con to capture their new enemies.
Each new bot is a fully capable action hero but inexperienced in working together in a team, forcing Bumblebee to become both squad leader and coach, Hasbro said.
A judge in Los Angeles, CA has ruled to allow Casey Kasem's daughter, Karri Kasem, the authority to suspend infusions of water, food, and medications for her ailing father. In a reversal of the court's previous decision, the judge ruled in accordance with a power of attorney statement which was signed by Kasem in 2007, declaring that he did not want to be kept alive,"any form of life sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration" if it "would result in a mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope of normal functioning."
The judge's decision was based on the recommendations of Kasem's doctor and reviews of his medical records, which indicate that the infusions are not helpful to Kasem's continued health and may be doing him harm. While originally diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, Kasem's diagnosis was later changed to Lewy body dementia, which is incurable and can lead to progressive dementia, fluctuating cognition, hallucinations, and a variety of other symptoms.
While we all remember Casey Kasem in part for voicing Teletraan I, Cliffjumper, and Bluestreak in the G1 series, he was perhaps most famous for his hosting of America's Top 40 from July 1970 to August 1988, and again from March 1998 to January 2004. In addition, Kasem was the voice of Shaggy in many iterations of Scooby Doo. He also did voice work in many other movies and TV shows, including Ghostbusters, Hawaii Five-O, Sesame Street, Superfriends: The Legendary Super Powers Show.

Just in from our friends at BotCon, Morgan Lofting has been added as a special guest for this year's event in Pasadena, CA! See details below:
MORGAN LOFTING worked throughout the 70's and 80's performing various media voice-overs including cartoons, narrations, and commercials. On-camera there were a few good old TV series and Movies of the Week -- plus plays in New York and L A. and several regrettable movies, but let's not go there.
In 1989 Morgan returned to college to finish her Bachelor's Degree, stayed for an MA in history and was on her way to a doctorate when she took another swerve... so much to learn, so little time.
Now Morgan has found a new love, "bartending with books" as she calls it at her city library -- a job that leaves her plenty of time to travel, do yoga and read, read and read. However, after her first ever convention appearance at GIJoeCon 2011 and a subsequent appearance at BotCon 2011, Morgan was tapped by Derrick J. Wyatt to voice the villain Fistina, a character created especially for her, on the series Ben 10: Omniverse.
For many, Morgan will always be the voice of the Baroness from the G. I. Joe: A Real American Hero animated series, as well as Firestar and Moonracer on the classic Transformers animated series. Even her son and grandkids are fans!
