The E-mail, which we can report was actually send several weeks ago, was made public by Don Murphy on the board of his site. The following is Neil Kaplan's E-mail as it was posted by Murphy.
Hello Mr. Murphy...
My name is Neil Kaplan. I am one of only three actors in the world to officially play Optimus Prime; leader of the Autobots.
I realize that in the grand Transformer universe Peter Cullen is Sean Connery (THE man!)... and Gary Chalk is Timothy Dalton... and I am thought of as "the George Lazenby of the Transformer world!"
--You know, I always did like "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."--
Since posting Gary Chalk's e-mail on your website, I have received several pieces of wonderful e-mail from fans in urging me to get involved with the long awaited live action adventures.
I just want you to know that I am very interested in playing ANY of the many transformers in the
And yes, if given the chance I would be thrilled to read for the role of Optimus Prime.
Thank you sincerely for your time and consideration.
P.S. you will find attached a one minute demo of some of my animation work, including Optimus Prime from the FOX-TV series "Transformers: Robots in Disguise."
