*Let it first be noted that this isn’t supposed to be like that “Using the Actors/Actresses Likeness to make the CGI...”-thread. I don’t want this to end up like that one, no offense. I actually thought of this after reading the topic of “Kurt Russel as Springer in “The Last Stand of the Wreckers” directed by Ridley Scott”, or whatever it was called. So anyway... If our favourite Transformers characters were to actually be played by people (as opposed to simply voice acted or motion captured or anything like that, but actual physical, visual acting), who would you choose? If you’re not sure what I mean, think of the G1 “Only Human” episode or Animated’s “Human Error” episodes. Yeah...like that. Those shape-shifting robots in disguise have become fleshlings! Who would Optimus and Megatron look like if they were human? Who would play them? What actual human actors/actresses would you choose to play the Transformers if they were human? For example, I chose Liam Neeson or Mark Harmon for Optimus Prime, simply because they seem like strong, noble guys (like Optimus). For Megatron, I chose Hugo Weaving or Ralph Fiennes (*cough*typecasting*cough*), or even Kelsey Grammar (for a more Beast Era-esque/Unicron Trilogy “sophisticated” Megatron). Keanu Reeves as Soundwave (mostly a joke, but if it still works...) and Alan Rickman as Shockwave. But I just can’t seem to think of anyone for Starscream. Now, some of my reasons actually have some logic behind them, and others don’t, so that’s why I’d like your opinions. So, feel free to typecast (I know I did), and let me know for whatever character you want! What actor would be a good Animated Bulkhead? Or a Beast Wars Megatron? Bayformers Ratchet? G1 Megatron? G1 Jazz? Starscream? Ironhide? Soundwave? Wheeljack? Kup? Whoever! Whatever! Give multiple choices for different versions of the characters too if you want (G1 Starscream, Bayformers Starscream, Animated Starscream, etc.). And yes, I know, “Cool story bro” and whatnot, yeah, yeah, yeah. Have at ‘er!
