    Rather odd. I think Keith David has an EXCELLENT voice that would work well for a few different TF characters, but I didn't see it (at least the Goliath voice I remember) attached to Barricade, who I kinda imagined with a less menacing "stormtroopery" voice, to match the Terminator 2-ish nature of the character. It'll probably be better than I think though.

    Looks like he has done a lot of voice overs but for some reason I will always associate him with the above quote from Men at Work.

    Glad for Mr K.D. No doubt he'll do well !!:thumb  However I still prefer Frank for Megs!! But I'll give Hugo the chance to prove himself !! Just curious to hear his voice in Megatron !!

    Great choice.

    I'm still trying to erase the image of his bare ass in Requiem for a Dream from my mind.

    That's pretty awesome. I'm much more excited over this movie than I ever thought I'd be. Keith David's voice does wonderfully horrible things to my insides... now if only they'd make a CG Gargoyles movie ala TMNT. :p

    He is probably my 2nd favorite VA after David Kaye. Those two just have those menacing, powerful voices that command respect. Goliath was/is my 2nd favorite cartoon voice after BW/BM Megs.

    Also, he is a "name" actor w/o being just a name to put in the movie. I have heard of him and am familiar w/ his work, but he wasn't cast simply b/c he was famous like was done on some other movies.

    I love the way this cast is shaping up (yes Welker may have been better, but Weaving is a good 2nd choice).

    I support this. Two great voices for the 'Cons so far, so long as Starscream gets one also I think we'll be covered.

    I'm also getting excited about hearing Ironhide and Ratchet get named.

    Nifty. I always liked his voice. I cant wait to see what sort of modulation they put into it.
