    I love OP. Who doesn't?


    And mentioned OP also means the voice of Pete Cullen.



    But, should any unfortunate event happened, and Cullen is unable to reprise his role, (please God don't let this happen :cry ) is Gary Chalk capable of replacing his place?

    I find Gary Chalks voice to boring, average and emotionless. I would never want him to do Optimus Prime in a movie.

    Chalk is good but he will never replace cullen in a major motion picture. They'd get someone like Clooney before Chalk.

    And there is no way they are going to mess with the formula now. It worked very well.

    Ah, death? Illness? Losing his voice? Think!

    As wonderful as Cullen was, I think Chalk can do the voice one day. But that'll be ages from now: characters outlive actors.

    No.

    He only does a good Primal. All his Prime voices suck. (not that they're that different, but he's so emotionless with them)

    Not saying that his voice is bad, but it just seems a bit "plain" or something for my taste

    That has more to do with the fact his 'Prime' lines are boring, emotionless 'Japanese Super Hero' lines, like the other Japanese Transformers main characters, they all fight for Justice, and that's all the characterisation they're ever going to get.

    So you can't really blame Garry for not having much to work with.

    I say nay.

    I loved him as Primal in Beast Wars and Beast Machines, but that's just it; he's a perfect PrimAL... not PrimE :wink:

    No..

    I do agree Chalk did a good job at VAing Primal, and is a good voice actor over all. However Cullen will always be Prime.

    This is kind of coincidental in a strange way; friends of mine and I were talking about my on going project, (I someday hope it becomes animated in some form) and I was explaining that if that happened, all the voice actors I had in mind who could play the roles for some of the characters, Cullen being one of them... would more then likely be retired.

    IMO Chalk sounds nothing like Cullen, don't get me wrong, chalk has a good voice, but they do not sound alike.

    Chalk's Primes sound too happy. His voice is better suited for young, inexperienced Primes.

    He sounds like Chalk more in my view. Still, I think they could find someone to just impersonate Cullen. But like I said, characters will outlive actors.

    It was an honor for Cullen to be in TFTM,But if he unfourtnatly passes on Gary Chalk would be the best substitute or atleast David kaye.
