    Jeremy Irons - Shockwave, the most awesome thing I came up with since sliced bread.

    Also, Christopher Lee as Unicron [would be a fitting guy, seeing that Orson Welles was the original].

    Christopher Lee as Unicron would be great. I reckon he could also do a badass Fallen. James Earl Jones is another possible candidate.

    Sorry, OB-san - as marvelous an actor as Jeremy Irons is, I can't see him as the cold creature of logic that is Shockwave. When I think Jeremy Irons, I automatically think a politican, a lord, a knight or some other noble leader. I'd like him as Emirate Xaaron or Vector Prime.

    I think The Fallen should be more rageful and violent, Lee's epic gravely voice should be for a villain of "wealth and taste", so to speak [Unicron!].

    James Earl Jones should be Straxus, just imagine him saying "Mercy is not dispensed here Autobot fools, Only death." in a chilling Vaderistic tone.

    You can't see Mr.Irons like that because you remember Irons for his [quite rare, in fact] heroic roles, I remember him for his villanous roles [Scar from the Lion King and Simon Gruber from Die Hard being the most remembered].

    I mean:

    The Lion King - Simba & Scar (English) - YouTube

    "You have no idea" = Imagine that delightfully cruel and deadpan tone saying "PURE LOGIC".

    The Lion King - Scar and Mufasa (English) HD - YouTube

    "I quiver with FEAR" = In Shockwave's body. Seconds before murdering the living shit out of everything = AWESOME.

    Lion King: Be Prepared - YouTube

    "Of course quid pro quo is expected, to take certain duties on board" = Saying that to SS before turning on Megatron.

    Come on Natch! You know you want to imagine Shockwave singing Be Prepared!

    Burnie Burns as Rumble, Geoff Ramsey as Frenzy. Could have the pair of them snarking at each other, with some Red vs Blue references thrown into the mix.

    Optimus Prime: Kevin Conroy, as a really intense, passionate Optimus, driven to stop the Decepticons from hurting anyone else, even if he has to kill them all. Either him or Liam Neeson.

    Bumblebee: Seth Green, if only for the humor.

    Ironhide: Either Sam Elliot or Tommy Lee Jones. I envision my version of Ironhide as an old west sheriff, formerly an outlaw or mercenary.

    Elita One: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. I could see her being a Joan-of-Arc type of woman, an elegant, graceful lady who is a master of the art of war.

    Megatron: Mark Hamill in his Fire Lord Ozai role. Either that or Keith David (Despero of Justice League, among other things). The Decepticons could be a cult revolving around conquest, and he would be its cult leader.

    Starscream: I say keep Steve Blum from the Prime series; he's doing great. However, we should keep the early Starscream, when he was a badass.

    Shockwave: I'm officially a convert to the Jeremy Irons faction; Scar was an evil son of a bitch.

    Motormaster: Brad Garrett. Think Lobo as a Transformer.

    Been spying these forums a while, but this is my first post. I simply couldn't resist suggesting the following:

    Cliffjumper - Ryan Seacrest

    I can't help but think he should voice all the old Casey Kasem characters just as an in-joke

    I do like the Bruce Campbell suggestion for Springer, though I could see it fitting Cliffjumper as well.
