    Once I heard Skids in the trailer I could almost bet that he was Tom Kenny. I think that they used a perfect voice actor for the character. I am happy with the voice!

    I would guess and say that he (Tom Kenny) is doing both twins. He can alter his voice in many directions so that's cool with me.

    Hey, anyone worried about spoilers, the article pretty much steers clear of them. There's a few new pieces of info, but mostly just confirming things we've pretty much known for awhile.

    I knew Tom Kenny would be voicing Skids, but I'm still waiting on who's voicing Mudflap.

    Huh. Interesting read. Not much in the way of news short of Tom Kenny being announced as a VA though, but that's still cool. Let me guess... he's Wheelie? :p

    Just to be on the safe side I'm steering clear of the article, but Tom Kenny? Awesome, awesome; best casting they could have done for the character, really. Fantastic to see more VAs of real pedigree show up for this film, after the rather haphazard casting of the first film's voices...

    Now get Bill Fagerbakke for Mudflap. You know it makes sense. :p

    Judging by Mudflap's highpitched scream when he gets devoured by Devastator, Tom Kenny may very well be voicing both twins.

    Yay for Tom Kenny.

    Although, his roles in Animated will be his best voice acting roles other than Spongebob and Plastic Man.

    Tom Kenny! I didn't see that coming! Sweet! Too bad Starscream was taken. :p 

    It would be great to see him as Skids. That would cement Skids' place as my favorite bot of the new movie.

    And nice info on the Rainn Wilson character. I had been wondering.

    Aw, YEAH. I am *so* happy to see that real, experienced voice actors with a history in the industry are actually getting some attention this time around.

    I too, hope that Mr. Kenny is voicing both twins. Considering they're twins, this wouldn't be so unusual...

    Glad to hear Fox is performing better this time around. (I was hoping. Yikes.)

    That's great! I love Tom Kenny's voice-acting work. Either of the twins would be great choices for him, so I'm glad Skids is atleast one.

    I agree - having heard Skids, I too thought Kenny. And he's perfect for either Twin. Still hoping Welker = at *least* Soundwave, and Tony Todd = Fallen.

    And good to hear that Megan is "acting" more - chemistry between actors can certainly help light-writing. Love that the parents are back - they were a welcome bit of levity, and it felt like they clicked w/ Shia the first time around as well.

    As for experience VAs this time around... my 6 y/o was watching Nick's "Penguins of Madagascar" - and pointed out TO ME that one of them sounded like TFA Prowl :jawdropper:  At least he might have some names to look for, unlike when I was growing up and just went by characters (other than Prime & Megs, I actually learned about them - a few yrs later).
