    Good casting. This movie is looking better recently. Awesome posters (featuing the best part of the movie so far..Optimus Prime's head), Hugo Weaving and Keith David.

    I liked Keith David in Halo 2. He should be a good fit.

    This I am actually psyched for. I am a big fan of his work on Gargoyles and Justice League. I think he will do a great service to this movie.

    Nice!! My other pic for barricade's Michael Jackson! Keith David I think would do a great job. Greatest line Keith has ever said was in Requim for a Dream. With his manhood hanging out he said to Jennifer Connelly " I know it's pretty,but I didn't take it out for air baby. " He needs to say it in Transformers!!

    I am really happy with this. I can imagine his voice for that role quite easily based on his past work.

    Cool, sounds good. I could picture the guy who did Atlas in Teen Titans as doing Barricade.

    I hope he ties two autobots together in a doggystyle pose to a merry-go-round. That would look pretty damn sweet to me.

    Yeah, this guy is good. His voice for Goliath on Gargoyles was really fantastic. If James Earl Jones dies tomorrow, this guy would probably be the voice of Darth Vader wherever needed. As for Barricade, I don't even know how many lines the guy has. I have to admit I was getting the impression most of these robots weren't going to talk much in the film. To me, there's nothing worse than a silent robot. I need to hear classic lines like "Back away! I will deal with this Jedi slime... MYSELF!" or something of the sort. Guys like ... wait, what are the Decepticons' names again? Oh yeah. Brawl, Blackout and Bonecrusher (what idiot decided to have all their names start with "B?" Is it "B" for "Bay?" Ugh)... I haven't read any scripts, but I'm afraid their lines are going to be as bad as Bane's (there's that "B" again) in Batman & Robin. Examples include "Bomb" and... wait, were there any others?

    I love Keith David, he has one of the best voices ever...

    Goliath? Spawn? City Confidential? More reasons for me to love Barricade...

    Oh yes, I'm a happy camper!
