We've got three new War For Cybertron voice actor confirmations straight from IMDB. Supposedly the blue seeker Thundercracker will be voiced by John McGinley, most famous as Dr. Cox from ongoing TV series Scrubs. Skywarp will be voiced by Crispin Freeman, who has voiced numerous video games and anime roles over the years. Lastly Ratchet will be voiced by Travis Willingham, also a mainstay anime voice actor, most notable for voicing Roy Mustang in both Full Metal Alchemist series.

There's no official conformation on these voice actors from Activision, however we'll let everyone know if any of these are false.

I agree, that would've been cool! Still, it's nice to see that ol' Thundercracker is getting some love.

I can just imagine Dr. Cox making sarcastic remarks as Thundercracker- calling the other decepticons by girls names, etc.

Yay John C. McGinley! He's great! Loved him in Office Space as one of the Bobs, can't remember which. He also voices The Whammer in the Wordgirl cartoon. I've got a 5-year-old daughter, I have no choice but to know these things.

Crispin Freeman as Skywarp? Sounds pretty good. I liked Freeman's work in Digimon and Spectacular Spider-Man, so he should make a decent Decepticon.

Really? John McGinley hasn't done much video game work as far as I can see. Is this reliable?
Way cool if it is!

i noticed it lists McGinley without the "C" in his name which he's always used in his acting credits. is that just some sorta error or is it possible its just another actor with the same name?

Considering that IMDB information is just contributed by normal Net users and isn't necessarily rigorously researched... no, it's not necessarily reliable.

I'd call it a rumor until someone at Activision or Hasbro gives a yay or nay.

WOOOOW! One of my favorite actors now voicing a character in, what will be become (if it hasn't already), my favorite game ever. Ya know, i never new what a "rabid fanboy" was until i just looked in the mirror. But HOLY CRAP thats awesome. Now if he just portrays the character as a psychotic smartass, then yeah...i think my divorce me after i get this game....

EDIT: Now if we can just get a decent Soundwave and Shockwave. I'm hopin for the dude who plays Prof Snape in the Harry Potter movies for Shockwave. His voice is perfect, but since SHockwave is a pre-order gift character, he prolly won't have a voice. >_<
