The momentum that the Dreamworks Transformers Movie is slowly gaining is apparent with yet another interview that has popped up with the voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen. This time NewsOK.com have taken to interview the voice actor veteran. The article goes on about Cullen's appreciation for the fans and about his role in the new movie.

"(The filmmakers) were thinking more Hollywood big names. They did start to consider the original voice actors because of the enthusiasm and the ... stubbornness of the fan base. God, I'm grateful for those guys".

He was asked to read a scene with Optimus Prime and Ironhide, a gutsy Autobot who was a close friend of Prime's, also played by Cullen in the original series.

"The script assistant was there, and she started reading for Ironside, I said, ‘Excuse me, dear, do you mind if I read it?' Because I actually played this character.'" Cullen completed the read-through reading for both characters.


Supplemental:
Another interview with Peter Cullen has appeared on yet another site. This time The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette went face to face with the veteran Voice Actor. This will mark the third interview with Peter Cullen this month, as far as we have found this far!

"If a kid gets excited, it’s probably not because of me unless he’s seen reruns. I think pretty much it’s people my daughter’s age, which would be mid-20s-to-mid-30s. It always amazes me and I am humbled by it. I never realized the impact Optimus Prime had".
