How did you become involved with the new Transformers project and your character?
I prayed a lot, bribed a little, cried some. [Laughs] Actually, I just auditioned for it like anything else – and got really, really lucky!
Are you a fan of horror and science fiction? If so, what are some of your favorites?
Not as much horror as sci-fi, but I’ve seen quite a bit of both. One of my favorite horror bloodfests happens to be Re-Animator. I worked as a driver, shlepper, mailboy, slave for the production company that made it – Empire Pictures, when it was shot in 1985. The weird thing about that film is that the star, Jeff Combs, is now playing Ratchet in Transformers: Prime!
What sort of research did you do for the parts and what challenges did it present compared with other work?
I read a lot of stuff on the internet and watched an episode or two from each of the older series. I was already in my 20’s when G1 came out, but I was certainly aware that Transformers was something new and different and I have to admit that I did play with my kid’s action figures. I still do. Except I have my own action figures now. That counts as research, right?

In the past, I’ve played a lot of bots – good and bad, including Barricade and Breakdown.
Huh? He never played Breakdown. Wonder how he got that one mixed up.
