Neil Kaplan, the voice actor of Ro-Tor and of course Optimus Prime from Robots In Disguise, has contacted Don Murphy by E-mail. This hot on the heels after Gary Chalk (Armada, Energon and Cybertron Optimus Prime) made a similar contact with the producer of the new Transformers Live action movie.

The E-mail, which we can report was actually send several weeks ago, was made public by Don Murphy on the board of his site. The following is Neil Kaplan's E-mail as it was posted by Murphy.

Hello Mr. Murphy...

My name is Neil Kaplan. I am one of only three actors in the world to officially play Optimus Prime; leader of the Autobots.

I realize that in the grand Transformer universe Peter Cullen is Sean Connery (THE man!)... and Gary Chalk is Timothy Dalton... and I am thought of as "the George Lazenby of the Transformer world!"

--You know, I always did like "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."--

Since posting Gary Chalk's e-mail on your website, I have received several pieces of wonderful e-mail from fans in urging me to get involved with the long awaited live action adventures.

I just want you to know that I am very interested in playing ANY of the many transformers in the
upcoming films.

And yes, if given the chance I would be thrilled to read for the role of Optimus Prime.

Thank you sincerely for your time and consideration.

Respectfully,
Neil Kaplan

P.S. you will find attached a one minute demo of some of my animation work, including Optimus Prime from the FOX-TV series "Transformers: Robots in Disguise."
