A Transfan from Australia has been kind enough to share the list of voice actors that starred in the movie premiere!

Here is the list of voice actors and their characters:

Optimus - Peter Cullen
Megatron - Hugo Weaving
Bumblebee - Mark Ryan
Ironhide - Jess Harnell
Barricade - Jess Harnell
Ratchet - Robert Foxworth
Bonecrusher - Jimmie Wood
Jazz - Darius McCrary
Starscream - Charlie Adler
Frenzy - Reno Wilson

Of note, there seems to be no Keith David as Barricade, and it is rumored that he is only appearing in the video game as a VA.

And for the link-a-phobic...

Optimus - Peter Cullen
Megatron - Hugo Weaving
Bumblebee - Mark Ryan
Ironhide - Jess Harnell
Barricade - Jess Harnell
Ratchet - Robert Foxworth
Bonecrusher - Jimmie Wood
Jazz - Darius McCrary
Starscream - Charlie Adler
Frenzy - Reno Wilson

Just found a clip with Robert Foxworth in it on YouTube(my fiancee is a HUGE Ratchet fan), and I've got to say, good choice. And Jess Harnell's got tremendous range. So, no new big names, but people who can pull off the job, IMHO. And it looks like Keith David is Barricade in the game only, if this is accurate. Makes sense, though, given what we've heard about the lack of 'Con dialogue in the movie.

Anyhow, thought it was interesting and wanted to pass it along.


Front paged!! Thanks!

Wasnt someone else doing Starscream? And has anyone ever heard of half these people? I thought that movie were supose to have real voice actors or famous people doing the VO. I think bay spent to much on ILM and had to hire people no one would know to well.

Heresy, says I! Common sense or no, one shall not blaspheme against Ye Olde Welker!!!

WHO CARES. The movie is going to make insane amounts of money. Nobody needs Will Smith voicing an autobot to go see it. You've got your mind made up after seeing the visuals, not who's voicing Blackout or something. Come on.

When Bumblebee is rebuilt, they might rebuild his voicebox. That would explain the voice actor. I really hope so, at least.

I could be mistaken, but didn't Charlie Adler do the voice of Kranix in the original movie (and probably some other voices as well)??

maybe they cut out Barracade's speeking role before the final film?

I was also thinking earlier today -- Tom Hanks stated in an interview some time ago that he was a HUGE Transformers fan. I always thought there was the POSSIBILITY that he would voice one of the characters, especially with Spielberg Executive Producing and all... I never READ anywhere that he would be, just thought it was a possibility, that's all.

Charlie Adler did, in fact voice some G1 characters, plus he was the voice of Buster Bunny on Tiny Toon Adventures.

I think he'd make a pretty good Starscream. Not great, but good.

I won't believe this list until the movie comes out. I can see why they'd hire Keith David as Barricade for the game...I'm sure he'd have more lines because they've got to make the game irritating in that respect. But I seriously doubt they'd pass him over for the film as well.

There are so many rumors, we won't know until the final product hits theaters July 2nd at 8:00...until then...all we can do is listen to these untruths.

Haha, Capt. Hero is voicing Ironhide and according to that, Barricade as well.

Ratchet - Race Bannon(The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest)

Starscream - the voice of Cow, Chicken, Red Guy, and I.R. Baboon

Umm, I've been following this production for quite a while now. As best I recall, the only CONFIRMED voice was Cullen as Prime. Everything else was unconfirmed or rumor.

Both IMDB and Wiki can be edited by anybody, so for all intents and purposes those sites can only be considered rumor mills. Especially when it comes to uncompleted projects.
