Known to most people as Mr./Commander/Captain/Ambassador Spock from the Star Trek Franchise, Leonard Nimoy holds a special place in the hearts of many Transformers fans as the voice of Galvatron in Transformers: The Movie. Following Peter Cullen for Transformers and Revenge of the Fallen came G1 Megatron Frank Welker as Soundwave in Revenge of the Fallen. Now, another voice from the past will join the cast of Dark of the Moon. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Leonard Nimoy will voice Sentinel Prime in the new movie.

Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay had toyed with the idea of inviting him to play a voice in the second movie, Revenge of the Fallen, but wasn’t sure he could pay the veteran actor enough. “I was too scared to ask him,” the director says. “Plus, he’s married to Susan Bay, who’s a cousin of mine. So I had to be careful. I’ve met him at family functions. But he told me, ‘I would be honored. I’m glad to be back!’”

Let's hope there are no obligatory Mr. Spock lines written in to be 'funny'.

Nice to see that Bay did get him involved in the movie franchise afterall.

EDIT: And looking at Sentinel's picture, he reminds me of Nimoy. Perhaps the evil alternate universe Spock, but for some reason the face looks similar. The power of suggestion...

Oh, so THAAATS why Sentinel Prime looks like a dried up old bean in the face. :lol:
Good news I guess, as long as he doesn't say "my bad" :roll:

Ten bucks says he uses the words "logical" and "fascinating" at least once.

I've totally forgot Nimoy was in the animated movie when I read the EW article earlier. :lol:

Nonetheless I'm stoked for the news! He should be great.

I get the feeling you aren't quite happy enough. :lol: But I digress. I'm stoked, but as always I reserve judgment until I see the movie.
