    According to IESB.net

    an article from a French Magazine has been translated to reveal, That John Turturo is possibly the voice of Jetfire. Source

    Never mind, There is already a post about it here.

    Lol. The rumors of Simmons dying. Does that mean Simmons becomes one with Jetfire, then Jetfire turns into an Autobot?

    Crackpot mode: off.

    It'll probably be all pitched down and processed no matter who the use anyway, so whatever. As long as the person can act, it's all good.

    Aside from his role in 'The Big Lebowski', I'm not so sure ol' John Turturo can act that well. Seems more like a man who plays a character than a role.

    Not a fan of Turturo but he could alter his voice and change the tone and act serious so it may not be so bad.

    I think Turturo would voice Wheelie instead of Jetfire. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Simmons is the one who allegedly "owns" Wheelie or whatever you want to call it. If Jetfire is suppose to be a geriatric it would make sense that they would cast a more elderly sounding person to fill the role. I hope this isn't true. From my recollection, everything that's leaked to the French press regarding Videogames or Movies always ends up being true:(

    I suppose it's too late for them to hire Christopher Lee?

    Nah...I feel like Christopher Lee sounds far too commanding and eloquent to voice Jetfire. I'd like to hear someone with a rougher voice....something along the lines of Bale's Batman voice but older sounding...then again we don't know much about how Jetfire will act as a character so it's hard to map a voice to him. This i just how I've imagined it.

    No, John should adopt a rough, elderly and derisive voice.
    Bay could always hire Yoda to voice Jetfire.

    If Simmons dies, it would have to be at the end of the movie because didn't we see a picture of him standing on one of the pyramids with a walkie talkie in his hand? Which has been rumored as the final battle scene . . ..

    I hope this isn't so. Turtoro isn't a bad actor in my opinion, I just can't get my head around him voicing a geriatric Transformer.

    Well, then I guess Christian Bale, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, and about 99% of all actors working are bad actors, too, because they almost always play variations on the same sort of "core" character (now I'm my character as a psychopath, now I'm my character as a paedophile, now I'm my character as a military officer, etc.).

    Being a good actor isn't about being a "chameleon" alone (though that could be one criteria), its about playing the role you are hired to play well, and Turturro's as good as anyone at doing what he is paid to do. Go see Barton Fink and tell me he isn't a great actor.

    In any case, as long as Jetfire gets pissed on by Bumblebee, I will be happy with this choice.

    Tuturo can be wacky he might make a good voice actor. As far as him becoming jetfire i hope now.
