Transformers Game Nabs Original Voice Actors
Dave3   |  

Frank Welker and Peter CullenFrank Welker and Peter Cullin reprise their Megatron and Optimus Prime voice roles for new Transformers videogame.

Activision has announced their plans to pull off the voice-over reunion that we geeks have been waiting for — one that Michael Bay apparently could not (or for some unknown reason, chose not to).

The company has signed on both Peter Cullen and Frank Welker to reprise their respective voice roles as Optimus Prime and Megatron — the diametrically opposed leaders of the transforming Autobots and Decepticons — for their upcoming project, Transformers: The Game, an adaptation of the DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures movie Transformers, which will be hitting theaters on July 4th.

As Transformers fans, we knew the importance of having the well-known voices of Optimus Prime and Megatron in the game, said Laird Malamed, Activision’s production head.

Mr. Malamed is sooo totally right! I mean, why the hell would you go through the trouble of signing the original voice of ‘Optimus’ and not also lock-down ‘Megatron’ too? It just makes very little sense to me. What’s up with that Mr. Bay? (Hugo Weaving has been cast as the voice of Megatron in the live-action feature.)

Sure, everyone and their monkey recalls Cullen’s ubiquitous “Autobots, roll out!” but for my money without it being balanced by Welker’s “It’s over, Prime!”, any victory over the Decepticons would seem a hollow one.

    For the record, Frank Welker is on the right and Peter Cullen is on the left. They are both outstanding voice actors with a long list of entries on IMDB. Check it out.

    Bay sux for not using the original megatron voice actor. Megatron looks like a piece of shit with no life. Looks like they fuckin up Transformers. Guess I’ll have to wait till its released. So far it looks shitty.

    Is megatron going to be a gun? When they stopped allowing the sale of real looking guns in the US they changed him to a lame ass tank in the past.

    That’s ironic that the game will have it right, but the movie won’t.

    I had to say it, Peter Cullen looks like Tony Stark.
