    I was just thinking. Neeson has that kind-of "give you the chills" voice and if Cullen couldn't do Prime for any reason, Neeson could pull it off I think.

    What do you guys think?

    Wasn't he also the inspiration for Prime's body language in the movies?

    Neeson for the reboot!

    Id want Garry Chalk, the guy who did the Optimus voices in Armada, Energon, Cybertron, & Beast Wars. I always loved his voice as Optimus!

    I'd prefer Chalk as the next option if Cullen couldn't do it. However, Neeson has a great benevolent voice that would definitely suit an Optimus character.

    Also, Leonard Nimoy should be considered for more TF voice roles. I loved him as both Galvatron (no disrespect to Welker's S3 and S4 work) and Sentinel Prime.

    Maybe Neeson for Ultra Magnus might better suited. I prefer Cullen and that's what made me warm up to the movies in the first place.

    I think he'd be the best alternative. But I hope the keep Cullen around regardless of whether we get a continuation or a reboot.

    Neeson was my 1st choice to voice Shockwave maybe Clancy Brown could voice Optimus

    PS Cullen is a fan of the Highlander Movie.

    I think Liam Neeson should be Ultra Magnus, if he ever appears on the movie-verse.

    The movie could open with Overlrod talking to Magnus in the telephone:

    Ultra Magnus - "Listen, I don't know what you want, if it is ransom I tell you I do not own Energon, but what I do have are skills, skills that I have acquired through a very long career, skills, that made a nightmare to people like you. If you let Optimus Prime go, this will be the end of it: I'll not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't...I'll look for you, I'll find you, and I'll kill you."

    Overlord - "Good luck." *turns off*

    The rest of the movie would be Ultra Magnus wrecking a havoc across Garrus-9 to find Optimus Prime in the middle of that mess, killing a shitload of Protoforms along the way using Krav-Maga moves.

    I'd like to see Neeson voice someone ALONG with Cullen. The epicness of that would be too much to handle.

    I could totally see him voicing Alpha Trion as well. Hell, even Vector Sigma or Primus.

    To me there is no other Optimus Prime but Peter Cullen. He puts the life into the character like no one else does.
