    Yes, that is correct. Gary Chalk, the voice of Optimus Prime, is playing a small role in tonight's episode of Eureka, the first episode of the series. He is playing a military official (colonel, IIRC).

    Damn it is odd to see the face attached to the voice I have grown so familiar with.

    He's also been in Stargate SG1 as a Russian general in a recurring role for the past few years. But I think his character was killed off.

    Ya know, I knew that but had totally forgotten about that character. Yes, he was killed off.

    He does a Russian accent well. So let me rephrase, it is odd to hear the voice I am used to, without an accent, and the face at once.

    Dude, if you watch SciFi for more than an hour in a day, you're bound to see Chalk in something. He's appeared in a bajillion different TV shows.

    Unfortunately, he gets typecast a LOT. He's always playing some type of authority figure like military guy, politician guy, or cop guy. And sometimes, all three.
