    I thought i'd post this because I find it fun to cause a little chaos.

    They'll deny it all they can, but Michael J.Fox will most likely be voicing Bumblebee in Revenge of the Fallen. Yeah, some other guy voiced him in the first one but he sounded pretty bad and only had 2 lines, so really no big loss.

    However, how many of you want to guess the word "continuity" was thrown around, until someone mentioned the recasting of Katie Holmes for The dark knight, where a major character who had more than 2 lines in a Batman film(you know, something people take more seriously) was recast and people were fine with it.

    So expect to see a favorite 80's actor voicing a favorite 80's character.

    Dude... I don't think any of the bots will be getting different voice actors. Especially Bumblebee's.

    In the TF1 commentary, Michael Bay used certain actors as reference points for how he wanted "his" bots to look & sound. That's where he let it slip that he had Hugo Weaving in mind FROM DAY ONE for Megatron, so anyone still wanting to believe that he ever gave Welker serious consideration needs to stop drinking the kool-aid. Anyway, in the same segment of the commentary, he used Liam Neeson as a reference point for Prime and Michael J. Fox as a reference point for Bumblebee. And THAT right there is where this "haymaker" dude is getting his so-called info - from a year old DVD commentary that he probably just watched.

    But to Bay's credit (for once), I think he was spot on with the MJF/BB likeness comparison, and that's totally the kind of voice I expected to hear from BB when he finally spoke - not an aristicratic sounding British guy. Not at all. Totally didn't fit with the characters body language or depiction of being the 'young one'.

    NO, Bumblebee's gonna be voiced by me!!!111


    No seriously, what's your source? No source, no talk. And if the rumour is true, is it not a fact instead?

    Dunno what you're drinking, but I hope you brougt enough for everyone.

    It would be nice to have MJF do the voice but i don't think its likely to happen what with contractual obligatiosn to the voice from the first movie.

    anyway, where did this rumour come from and how can you claim its true without a) having seen the movie and b) have stood next to MJF in the recording booth while he did his lines.
    Saying a rumour is true is a contradiction...if it was true it would be fact and no longer rumour :drunk

    I wasnt a fan of how BB sounded, MJF would probably be a cooler fit. That being said,

    I keep hearing this tossed around. Only lines I remember hearing of Bumblebee were at the very end of TF1, and they certainly weren't enough to judge the entire voice actor on (much less what kind of accent he was using).

    So where are people getting this from?

    Ryan gave Bumblebee a northern accent too in the Beginnings video.

    I thought Ryan was only confirmed to return as the on-set voice for the TF characters?
