    So I was listening to my local radio station here in Dubuque, IA and they were interviewing Tom Kenny, the voice of Sponge Bob Square Pants, and at the end of the interview, he meantioned a few of his upcoming shows, one of them being the new Transformers series. Is this old news or can somebody confirm this?

    Maybe he's Bumblebee.

    I'm sure he won't sound like Spongebob.

    Yeah the guy has been around for awhile... I saw a special on him years ago when Spongebob first started and he can do a range of voices. Just like any voice actor can. :)  I'm actually kinda of pumped about it.

    Yeah considering Frank Welker is currently the voice of Curious George and was the voice of Nibbler on Futurama, I wouldn't worry. Voice actors are usually very versatile.

    I wouldn't mind seeing (hearing) what this guy could do with a Transformers character. I say he's up there with Jim Cummings and Frank Welker in the realm of voice talent.

    Tom Kenny was best as Professor Ellis D. Traills

    "Oh God Oh God! These clothes! These clothes are too tight!"

    "Oh man the Professors freaking out!"

    Well, they may give him a character that prevents typecasting, so the chance he'll be a decepticon is very possible, but which one?

    That's Bill Fagerbakke. He was also Broadway in Gargoyles. How could they have Sponge Bob without Patrick?

    As for Kenny, yeah I'd guess Decepticon too. Optimus Sponge or Bumblebob just doesn't sound as funny as something like Spongescream Starpants.

    he's one of the biggest names in voice acting right now so this isnt too surprising

    it's also potential good news for the quality of the series; if they're hiring top voice actors rather than the usual anime union guys, then the budget is most likely higher
