Or maybee he hasn't lost his voice yet and he sounds like Martin Short. That would be funny

I could see him as Narrator, maybe a Sparkplug-like character or a Con like Swindle.

I sincerely doubt most people think of anyone other than the Hollywood actor/comedian when they hear about a "Martin Short" being in film/television.AllNewSuperRobot wrote:Sabrblade wrote:Who else is there?

Acting and films aren't a big deal to everyone. It was only a half remembered interview after all, which is why I had the brain fart over the names in the first place.

He was also great as the elf in the tv movie Merlin featuring Sam Neill in the lead role.
After seeing how Bay managed to make noteable actors such as John Malkovich and Anthony Hopkins cringey, I'm glad Bumblebee has a different director.

You get it? He's a comedic actor.....no disrespect to the actor himself.
Yeah, I know that was a very bad joke.

Van der Ryn and Aadahl are currently working on Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, a Christmas season release being directed by Travis Knight who made an auspicious helming debut with Kubo And The Two Strings.
The two have previous experience with the Transformers franchise, along with a pretty hefty resumé:
Van der Ryn and Aadahl carry an audio pedigree that was up to the script’s challenge, having teamed on a couple of Best Achievement in Sound Editing Oscar nominations--for Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2012, and Argo the following year. Prior to connecting with Aadahl, Van der Ryn teamed with supervising sound editor Mike Hopkins to win a pair of Best Sound Editing Oscars--for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers in 2003, and King Kong in 2006.
When Van der Ryn was in L.A. for the Academy Awards as a nominee for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, he first met industry pro Aadahl who was teaching a sound class at USC. The two struck up a rapport with Van der Ryn later offering Aadahl the chance to work with him on Michael Bay’s first Transformers movie. Van der Ryn and Aadahl kept on collaborating after that, eventually making their bond official by co-founding E² Sound which originally operated out of rented sound design suites at Sony. Four years ago, E² moved to the Warner Bros. Studios lot; the sound shop has worked with assorted studios, including Universal, Fox, DreamWorks and Disney.
As we said, a brief update, but sound appreciators out there might be excited about this story!

An alarm goes off at 8:00 AM. Charlie shuts it off, unhappily waking up. Her room is covered in posters. She rocks out with headphones on while brushing her teeth. In the garage, her car is playing the same song. When she enters, it stops.
A piece of the car hits the floor. She look beneath it. Getting on a board with wheels, she slides under the car. Ultimately, she finds Bee’s face, which lights up in the eyes and stands up above her. She’s shocked. This thing fits in the garage! They have a standoff. Bee stumbles around. She reaches for the door handle but sees he is just stumbling around and scared as he huddles himself into the corner.
She approaches and says, “Hi.” Bee chirps back. He’s still scared and avoiding her in the corner. “Do you speak?: she asks. Bee nods to indicate he does not. He stands up, holding his neck, after seeing the wrench in her hand. He analyzes her hands and comes closer, allowing them to touch his face. He can understand her. “What are you?” she asks. “Where did you come from?” He shies away from answering. He points to her shirt. He is asking who she is. “I’m Charlie,” she tells him. “Charlie Watson, I’m 18 today. Actually, it’s my birthday today. What’s your name?” He shies away, with his ears going down. She rules, “You sound like a little bumblebee.” That’s what she’s going to call him from now on. “Matches your outfit, too,” she says.
Later, clips of Bee running from a helicopter, trucks exploding, Bee playing on the beach, driving Charlie around, and other Transformers cut into the frame. A red and white winged Transformer is fighting him. He uses his arm cannon. He fights fighter jets. Charlie does her best to help him. He lands in a desert
There was more character and emotion in the 5 minute clip they just showed from Bumblebee than in all 372 hours of Michael Bay Transformers movies.— Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) April 26, 2018
Seems less busy, a bit more streamlined. He had a bee-looking faceguard/battle helmet thing during some of the action sequences.— Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) April 26, 2018
Bumblebee looks good.— Michael Keene (@MichaelKeene) April 26, 2018
This is not a drill: Bumblebee looks very, very GOOD.#CinemaCon
First footage from Bumblebee was very heavy on the heartstrings. Very relationship heavy. But also, BLUE AND RED STARSCREAM. Designs looks like Bay’s movies but with just a BIT more toy influence. I’m much more interested now.— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) April 26, 2018
