    I was watching a old episode of Gunsmoke and I was amazed how much James Arness (Matt Dillon) reminded me of G1 Optimus Prime. Both physically, character, and voice wise. Any other vintage actors remind you of TFs?

    I suppose it depends on what you consider "old school" or "vintage" actors.

    I can't help but picture Clint Eastwood as Bayformers Ironhide (even a little of Optimus in there too).

    John Wayne as G1 Optimus, obviously.

    Christopher Plummer strikes me as a perfect humanized Bayformers Sentinel Prime.

    Christopher Lee as Beast Era Megatron.

    Jimmy Stewart as Hound

    Brent Spiner or Leonard Nimoy as Prowl

    Deforest Kelly as Ratchet

    Sorry but whenever I watch the 80's Star Trek movies, the banter between Kirk, McCoy and Spock always strikes me as fitting Prime, Ratchet and Prowl.

    Brent Spiner isn't really old school. He's a veteran actor but he's still acting on a regular basis. Like just recently he was on Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes as the Purple Man.

    Him as Prowl....not bad.
