Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime, has been getting around. We reported two interviews recently with him here and here. Now, IGN.com had a chance to talk with Peter Cullen about his career, the technicalities of doing recording sessions, and what it was like to slip back into his role as Optimus Prime in the Transformers Movie.

Huh. I think he really does appreciate the Fan Base, unlike other people who are famous & don't acknowledge the fans at all. That's wat I like about people like Mr. Cullen.

One thing I like about this interview: when producers come up, completely change the designs & such of the characters, & then say, "trust us, it's the same 'ol bots you've always known"....It leaves me skeptical &, to put it bluntly, in disbelief. When someone like Cullen whose been doing it since Gen 1 & has such respect for the fan base says, "It's the same 'ol Prime I played 20 years ago." It's pretty certain that it's the same 'ol Prime we saw 20 years ago. That makes me feel all warm & fuzzy.

I agree. He seems like nice guy. He's tone in the interviews always comes across like fatherly advice (in a good way).

Well, I figure anybody would give the same answers to the same questions constantly repeated over & over.

One question I can think of that he always gives the same answer to:

-What did you think when you found out Prime was getting offed in the original movie?

"There goes my car payments!!"

Nice interview. I would just like to point out I'm going to see the movie to hear Peter Cullen voicing Prime again, amoung other things. I can't wait to hear Prime sound like...uh...Prime again.
