    Update: Activision Reps dropped us a line later today after this story broke and let us know that the below information is FALSE. They said that the only confirmed voice actor right now is Peter Cullen, and that more VO information should be coming down the pipeline soon.

    Screw Nimoy as Zeta Prime - while that's neat and all...

    DOUG PARKER IS VOICING STARSCREAM AGAIN.

    I need to rewatch "Possession" now to decide if I like his Starscream voice or not.

    I’m happy to hear about Doug Parker's inclusion as well. In fact, I didn't learn of Chris Latta's passing until the Beast Wars Possession episode. I thought it was Chris Latta. It wasn't until going to a news group did I learn that Chris Latta passed away years before its airing.

    Doug Parker is it? I recall that he only voiced Starscream once (Beast Wars "Possession"), but he was pretty much spot on so that's great.

    Megatron is voiced by James Remar whom is the guy pretty much everyone was speculating was him.

    Of course, the real big surprise here is Leonard Nimoy as Zeta Prime. I call that unexpected.

    Leonard Nimoy? Very unexpected, and quite awesome, too.

    ...

    Doug Parker?! Holy shit, yes. That dude did an excellent job voicing Starscream in Possession.

    Search for the Beast Wars ep on Youtube. It's probably up there. Would get a link but I'm probably already skirting forum rules as is.

    Ditto. It would be really cool if he is indeed the one helping out.

    Nice, thanks for the info guys! Although all this 'We need to stay tight lipped' is getting a little annoying as all they're doing is repeating the same things over and over, surely they can give us a tiny new bit of scrap to chew on .....?

    Leonard Nimoy is voicing Zeta Prime, huh? I'd say that's pretty kick ass.

    Doug Parker should make a good choice for Starscream too, if his Beast Wars performance is any indication.

    Parker really did a great job with Starscream's voice in Beast Wars, happy to hear he's reprising the role.

    WHO HOO! Thank you Doug Parker!

    It's funny 'cuz he played a 'Starscream wannabe' in Beast Wars then cameoed as Starscream in Beast Wars... and yeah, Doug's Starscream is closer than anyone else I've heard. I'm sure you're all glad I won't be using the Spongebob Squarepants theme if I do my own 5 second movie of this series. :p

    yay for Nimoy and Parker!

    Why didn't James Remar use his Black Mask voice from The Batman? That would've fit Megatron perfectly.

    So far, we have

    Zeta Prime- Leonard Nimoy

    Optimus Prime- Peter Cullen

    Bumblebee- Johnny Young Bosch (Sp?)

    Megatron- James Remar

    Starscream- Doug Parker

    I wonder if Doug Parker did the same thing as David Kaye did for Animated since Parker is a Candian Voice actor.

    I hope they have Frank Welker doing Soundwave.
