    What new voice actors would you like to hear within the TRANSFORMERS saga? (I mention “new” as in never heard before within any TF show so far).


    My picks, in alphabetical order, are:

    Hank Azaria (a wonderful live-action AND voice actor, and would be very welcome)

    Kevin Conroy (Some Batfan friends say he should take over as the new Optimus Prime. Can’t agree with that, but can’t disagree with it either)

    Pat Fraley (Centurions, TMNT’s Casey Jones and Cullen’s partner Ghostbuster)

    Mark Hamill (the only thing better than casting the Joker is casting Luke Skywalker in a TF feature, and vice versa)

    Jeremy Irons (Two words: Over Lord)

    James Earl Jones (No one else should voice Primus)

    Janice Kawaye (hearing XJ9 in a TF show would be very apt)

    Howie Mandel (I was actually hoping he would be cast in a TFilm, he’d have made a wonderful Bumblebee)

    Bill Murray (Who ya gonna call?)

    Richard Moll (the voice of Two-Face, and had starred in NIGHT COURT alongside PRIME’s Markie Post)

    Frank Oz (Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Animal and of course Yoda)

    Michelle Ruff (BLEACH, Lupin III, and many other great animes)

    Christopher Sabat (Funimation Studio’s mascot)

    Ernie Sabella (they call me mister pig - YouTube is all kinds of awesome)

    Carrie Savage (considered anime’s Tara Strong, because of the girlish roles she gets)

    Sean Schemmel (Anyone who voices Son Goku deserves a role in a TF show – beyond Ian James Cortlett anyway...)
    Goku First Time Super Saiyan - YouTube

    Paul Schoeffler (his talents were primarily exhibited in COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG: Freaky Fred 99% complete - YouTube)

    Sab Shimono (great Asian voice actor)

    Patrick Stewart (Not only Captain Picard and Professor Xavier, but an accomplished voice actor too. Make it so.)

    Sonny Strait (Lupin III, Kyuzo and most famously Krillin)



    Anyone else got any voice actors they’d love to hear in a TF feature?

    Well, since Breaking Bad is currently airing, and it's occupying much of my thoughts, I'll throw a few VA suggestions into the mix-- Breaking Bad edition!

    Bryan Cranston - I could see him voicing several characters. Top on that list would be Ultra Magnus or Megatron. (Cranston actually did/does voice work. Among many notable roles, he voiced Isamu Dyson from Macross Plus)

    Bob Odenkirk - He plays sleazeball lawyer Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad. He would be a perfect Swindle, or if he toned the sleaze down a bit, a great IDW Swerve too.

    Giancarlo Esposito - His character, Gus, is one of the most masterfully-acted bad guys in TV history, if you ask me. I picture Mr. Esposito playing any one of the more cerebral, cold Decepticons. (Shockwave, Soundwave, Bombshell... maybe Hook too).

    I know he's not Adam's not realted to them and it'd be a dumb joke, but the Baldwin brothers should voice the rest of the Stunticons in Prime. :lol

    Simon Templemen, aka Kain from the Blood Omen game series.

    I'd like to see him as TARN of the DJD. Maybe Overlord?

    The top two spots in a list like this for me have long been occupied by Clancy Brown and Tim Curry, and after thirty years of this franchise, I finally got 'em BOTH within the span of like a year! So, I think Keith David would be my next choice to finally hear on a Transformers cartoon. We had him in the movie games, but get that man's voice in my cartoons.
