    At first I thought it was a concidence but I've noticed that alot of actors from Serity/Firefly are making their way to Transformers related projects. Alan Tudyk (Wash) is playing Simmons right hand man in TF3. Adam Baldwin (Jayne) is voicing Breakdown in TF Prime and Gina Torres (Zoe) is in some way working on a project on the hub. What's next is Nathan Fillon going to do something TF related? What are your thoughts?

    What's wrong with using actors with talent?

    What's with TF:A casting in their group of good guys Bill Fagerbakke as the fat oafish lug and Jeff Bennett and the lanky dude? What is this, Gargoyles? Actors paying the bills. Coincidence, that's all.

    *If you really want to see an "accidental crossover", see the Gargoyles/Star Trek connection

    A lot of Whedon alumni have been cast in almost every DC Universe animated flick in the last couple years. I guess they're just making the rounds.

    I think Nathan Fillion would play a good modern version of Rodimus.

    No, Fillion would do a good Springer since both Mal and Springer are Han Solo Expies.

    Nathan Fillion would pretty much make a good anything. Can't say I've loved everything he's done (Slither? Really?) but as Captain Malcolm Reynolds, I'd follow him to the end of the 'Verse.

    The Decepticons have won the Transformers civil war. A small crew of Autobots under Springers command carry on smuggling and stealing in this Decepticon controlled part of the 'verse.
    It is said that out in the black there are robots inflicted with the hate plaugue.

    Nathan Fillion as Springer
    Sean Maher as First Aid
    Adam Baldwin as Cliffjumper
    Gina Torres as Chromia
    Summer Glau as Moonracer
    Ron Glass as Beach Coomber
    Morena Baccarin as Elita-1
    Jewel Staite as Arcee
    Alan Tudyk as Bumblebee

    Sky Lynx can be their spaceship.

    This. Someone write this fanfic now! Lol
    This too. I recently started watching that show cuz my wife picked the first season. (Mostly cuz he was in it). I only get one crappy tv station where I live, so the season two box set cannot come out fast enough.

    I was actually thinking about him. But Wash wasn't such a braggart that Powerglide is though, that was my main reason for not casting him as Powerglide.
    But I guess he works. Maybe someone else has another suggestion for a better fit for a Wash type character?

    Also I don't know if Optimus Prime would appreciate that Elita-1 is working as a companion. There isn't enough femmebots in G1.

    Maybe it's like how all the Star Trek Next Generation folks ended up on Gargoyles. Maybe they just refer each other or something.

    A lot of them have a good history as voice actors, in video games and in animation. Look at Justice League Unlimited.
