    Keith David was the voice of the Arbiter in Halo 3. That voice is just so epic and I think he should do a character in TF3.

    I was thinking Omega Supreme or Ultra Magnus or even Metroplex but what do other people think. If you are familiar with the Halo series you will know what I'm talking about but if not search for Halo cutscenes on YouTube.

    He's awesome. I think he'd be good for Omega Supreme.

    Didn't Keith David also voice Barricade in the 07 Movie games?

    Yeah he is really good. He also did the voice of Goliath in the Gargoyles series.

    Keith David is on my wish list for any TF series, live action, cartoon, I'm not picky. He's a great voice actor, he handles the deep voiced tough guys very well. my only criticism is he seems to only be able to really do that one type of voice, but he does it so well that it's not a huge problem.

    Keith David also voiced Spawn in the Epic HBO animated series. For those who haven't seen it. Get the 3 season collectors edition from Amazon.com. For under 20 bucks it's an absolute steal, storying telling and Animation at it's finest.

    Correct, & I wouldn't mind seeing him take that job in TF3. Jess Harnell's good, but Keith David's better.

    If they decided to introduce Powerglide as Jetfire's older borther like someone else suggested, he could voice him I guess.

    He should do a voice in the next cartoon, not the next movie. Too good to waste such a great voice talent.

    But wouldn't that make Powerglide like... a wheel? :lol 

    Also, Aniprowl, enough with the movie bashing. We get it. You don't like the movies.

    True, but Barricade only had two lines, neither of which really mattered as to whom recorded them. Barricade was fantastic in the games, however, so if he ever does come back and speak more than once, I hope Keith David would get the role.

    Then again, I think he'd be a fantastic fit for Magnus. What if they portrayed him as one of the last Autobots defending their post on Cybertron, who, while undoubtedly loyal to Prime, has experienced war and death on such a large scale that it has driven him to a bitter, reclusive soldier? David could totally nail that character.

    IF he were added (in whatever form), and IF the character didn't speak like "Me Grimlock!", I think Keith David could do a cool Grimlock.

    I'd like to see him do a Decpeticon, a Combaticon or another Car Con perhaps.

    GOLIATH!!!! My dream is for Disney to do a Gargoyles movie.

    Wasn't he supposed to be Barricade in the movie? I never heard what happened about that. He did the video game which was cool, but I wanted to hear him on the big screen.

    I kind of like using relative unknowns for the voices. You pay attention more to them as characters (well, as much as they are in the movies thus far) rather than "hey! That's the guy from the Navy commercials!" Peter Cullen notwithstanding, of course.
