    Does anybody else find it funny/awesome that Leadfoot is voiced by John DiMaggio aka Bender?!

    And that Q was voiced by George Coe who is currently playing Woodhouse on Archer?!

    I also was happy to see Keith Szarabajka (known best recently as the cop who the Joker takes hostage b4 he makes his one phone call) and Greg Berg who has done muppet babies and the simpsons VO work were all autobots!

    I mean actual VO actors, not Hugo Weaving (although I do enjoy his take on Megatron) or Jack Black or some famous lamewad who got a role b/c he's famous, yaaaayy!

    OOOOH, I didn't know who George Coe was, but Wheeljack as Woodhouse?! AWESOME!

    EDIT:
    Wheeljack: I’m afraid the lemur got into the pudding cups.
    Sideswipe: Yeah, like I told you he would! You idiot!

    I don't see the reason to mention these are 'actual' voice actors. Most of the people voicing the robots in the movie trilogy have been professional voice actors.

    I'm fine with the thread, even if just because I learned about Woodhouse being Wheeljack.

    Sideswipe: Wheeljack, what are you doing?
    Wheeljack: Uh, sitting down, sir.
    Sideswipe: What, at the table?!
    Optimus Prime: Sideswipe!
    Sideswipe: Like people?!
    Optimus Prime: Sideswipe!
    Sideswipe: What?! Look, he thinks he's people!

    I just mean there was always great fear that Bay would pull a Clooney, remember Bay thought Optimus should be voiced by George Clooney at first, I shit you not.

    Though I think Wheeljack in general is better fit for Krieger.

    Jolt: "But we'd need a doctor!"
    Arcee: "So? Wheeljack's a doctor."
    Jolt: "Not the medical kind!"
    Wheeljack: "Not even the other kind."

    Sideswipe: "Primus, Wheeljack, you're still videotaping Minicon fights?"
    Wheeljack: "No, I've gotten into something a little...darker."

    Sideswipe: Can you put it in a Bot's brain?
    Wheeljack: ......It'd suffocate.
    Sideswipe: Not the turbofox, you idiot - the chip.
    Wheeljack: Oh yes, absolutely.
    Sideswipe: Without killing them?
    Wheeljack: Oh......maybe?

    Arcee: You can't control a person's heart.
    Wheeljack: You can with a little something I like to call a deep cycle marine battery...or LSD.
    Arcee: *gasp* OH MY GOD! Is that what you've been giving me?!
    Wheeljack: *silence*......yes?

    Sorry man, but you're wrong. It was actually Liam Neeson. He even mentions it in the commentary track on the DVD for one of the first 2 movies (can't remember which one).

    The wreckers start shooting at Shockwave
    Leadfoot transforms and bends his rear in the air towards shockwave.

    "Bite my shiny metal ass!"

    Yeah I'm pretty sure he was the one who the Joker asked how many of his friends he had killed.

    Actually we are both right, just type in george clooney as optimus into google or Liam Neeson as Optimus and you'll get hits/stories about both, surprize Bay had more than one person in mind for Optimus before evening thinking of Cullen.

    I remember reading a very specific story about Bay being a bit embrassed about George C. being an Optimus choice after the 2007 film had come out, so he lied and said he had only considered Liam Neeson trying to dismiss it as rumor, but in all reality he considered a ton of people even before thinking of Mr.Cullen.
