I'd love to try this out if I lived anywhere close to San Diego.
But it's too many many plane-hours away. :(

I don't see why they can't have Cullen and Welker. Yeah, they pretty much want a reboot so no Cullen. But Welker wasn't Megs in the first 3 so why not him? I would try for this too because I wanna move to SD, but no money to get there.

This is for the Universal Studios theme park, not the film!

And I'm pretty sure it's the walkabouts that were revealed a couple of weeks ago. :-?
Going from the casting description, anyway. (Or maybe The Ride.)

Also if you all remember there is a new Transformers Series incoming in 2014 the reason Prime is ending this year.

Maybe these new Optimus & Megatron VAs could be for that new Animated Series.

I also remember talk about it being called ZERO or something along those lines but for now that is just merely rumors & speculations.

But I bet this is for that new 2014 Transformers series.

Will it be a continuation of Prime, a new Reboot of the Franchise, or something new entirely. I only hope to god it it will not be made goofy like Teen Titans GO.

But still my bet is on the new Transformers 2014 series.

Ok, this is the website for Universal Studios Hollywood.

Not the production company, but the park.
I highly doubt this is for any series or film, except for ones to be used in the park.

And the casting call asks for 'improvisation' and 'audience interaction', plus you have to 'keep up the voice for extended periods of time'. That all sounds like walkabouts to me.

This is for guys who can sound like the characters and wear the costumes all day all summer. I would personally love to try this if I lived in the area but it would keep me from being able to be available for voiceover work.
