    Okay this is kinda obscure "making sausage" stuff, but I know that a lot of wrangling goes on behind the scenes in who gets "top billing".

    Also "featured" actors get a special listing at the end of the credits.

    So it usually goes:

    Star/leading man - leading actress - actor - actor - 3 supporting actors - cameo guy and "featuring" actor.

    So can someone explain to me why Peter Cullen, (who is now officially the ONLY actor in all 4 movies) doesn't get a screen credit.

    Yes he gets top billing under "voices", but not even a featuring in the main sequence.

    And if there's some sort of "he's not a SAG member" nonsense, then how does Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy get top billing in Cars flicks?
    (dumb question, since the movie is 100% animated, I guess)

    Since David Hasslehoff had a live action Cameo in the Spongebob movie (from what I've heard,,,) was he the lead credit? See David Hasslehoff in Spongebob- The Movie!!!!

    I've always wondered this myself. We all come to see Optimus, not Marky Mark.
