    Those movies are full of meat heads and bimbos yet Cullen had to prove to Bay that he can act. That is funny.

    Great interview, Cullen is such a wonderful guy.

    Den of Geek needs an editor though.

    Me too

    I am strongly averse to engaging in sexual intercourse with Michael Bay myself, but I agree with the sentiment. :lol

    Whatever, he barely sounds like he did in the '80s. It's been a decade since we've had an Optimus that doesn't sound like it physically hurts him to speak.

    Yeh...Age kinda does that to you.

    If you watch Video's of Cullen doing the voices (for the films or cartoons) it doesn't look like it hurts him at all. Heck he has done it for so long now it's probably just as natural as his regular voice.

    I feel sorry for Frank Welker myself, Megatrons voice is a voice that sounds like it hurts to do.

    It sucks Cullen had to prove to Bay that he could the voice for Prime.  It shows just how little Bay cared about the franchise.

    It was Cullens first time doing the voice in a very long time, Gary Chalk had been doing it since beast wars barring RID.

    Wasn't how little Bay cared, he was just making sure Cullen still had it.

    Great stories from Mr Cullen, as always.

    I do wish that he could have voiced Bayformers Ironhide though.

    Between Starscream and Cobra Commander, I always had the most sympathy for the late, great Chris Latta.
