    Orson Welles - Transformers Wiki

    It's mind-boggling. I mean this is the guy who did THE THIRD MAN, CITIZEN KANE, THE KREMLIN LETTER and so many other highly-esteemed works, and such a high-grade actor got the job of acting in a TRANSFORMERS feature.

    Of course by his own account he didn't enjoy the role, but by most accounts he was a bit of a douche (which most gifted people are, like Stanley Kubrick and Marlon Brando). Still, I find it a great wonder (almost miracle-level), and his performance is, like all his other ones, fantastic.

    You'd be surprised at what people will do for their next bout of cash.

    In the end, Unicron never had that many lines, so it wasn't a long period of work. He could have probably knocked it out in a day possibly.
