MTV Movies Blogs talks a little with Peter Cullen, the voice of Autobot leader Optimus Prime on and off for nearly 25 years.

“I’ve only done the opening,” voiceover legend Peter Cullen told MTV News, updating us on the lengthy process of recording lines for the film. “[Michael] Bay brought me in to get them started on some of the animation part of it. I think they require a voiceover for it, [and then] we’ll get into the main stuff more towards the end of the fall…November, perhaps.”

And while Cullen will remain off-camera, like in the first film, some of him will find a home on the synchronized face of his alter-ego, Prime. “They focus a camera on my mouth,” he exclaimed. “It’s like ‘Oh my God, they’re looking into my mouth!’ It’s like going to the dentist.”


We all know Mr. Cullen is about to get a lot busier. You can view the MTV blog here.

If they ever do another animated series, I really hope they use him.

The man is a class act all the way. Anymore news about the rumoured appearance in TF 2?

I like that they'll be trying to more closely match the movement of Prime's lips to Cullens.
