    so me and my girlfriend have recently been watching the x files, starting from the beginning. tonight we were watching the episode "firewalker" from the second season. at the end, the credits started to roll, and that's normally where we turn it off.

    but the first screen of the cast came up, and kaye was listed as the reporter from the beginning of the episode. I was like, wait a minute, that's the name of megatron's actor. noooo, couldn't be. but then I remembered that beast wars was from canada and that x files was filmed in vancouver, so I looked up what kaye looked like, and sure enough, it was him.

    just thought I'd mention it. ;)

    David Kaye does hundreds of shows. He's not exclusive to TFs.

    Mr Kaye is a great person and a talented actor.

    In 2004 my Wife(Girlfriend at the time) wrote to him through his website.My birthday was coming up and she is disabled and had no way of getting money for a bday present and she was wondering if he would send me an autographed picture or just an autograph.She explained everything about her accident to him in the email.

    The next day she gets an email back from his manager,explaining that the weekend that was coming up Mr Kaye would be in Miami for Jacon,and he would call Mr Kaye and have him sign up 2 different Megs posters for me.

    2 weeks later my cell phone rings and I answer,and on the other end I hear in BW Megs voice "May I speak with Thommy,yessss."I dropped my cell phone,busted my screen he he.So I pick up fearing that I dropped the call when I did it,so I stammer out "This..this is him."He told me everything that my wife had put in the email and said that it touched him to know that I have such a wonderful and loving wife,I corrected him and said that she was my G/F,then he replied "Well son,she really loves you to reach out and contact one of your idols."(Yes Mr Kaye is my idol,as I want to be a voice actor too.)We continued talking for near and hour and he said that he was sorry that he couldn't talk anymore that he had to get to a meeting about a potential project coming up.So I thanked him for his time,and he responded "Be sure to keep an eye on my filmography,cause I'm still more than meets the eye."

    A few days after than I get my posters in the mail with a note in signed by Megsy himself.Same day I got my posters in,my buddy gets back from Jacon with my Energon 2-pack Megs with Mr Kaye's signature on his cockpit nosecone.

    So if you should ever get a chance to meet or talk with Mr Kaye,I suggest you do so.You will not regret it.I hope to finally get to meet Mr Kaye in person.

    Met him at BC 07 - not only is he nice, but quite cute too (too bad he's taken).

    Great to hear he is as nice a person as he seemed, off-camera so to speak.

    And now I too need to re-check BSG.
