Things are heating up as Michael Bay
replies back to Hugo Weaving
regarding his statement
on voice acting for Megatron
It is said that the director has posted on his official website, but the post Collider pointing to is missing. However, Collider has posted a copy
of the statement by Mr. Bay:
"Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs? With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t ‘artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? I guess The Hollywood Reporter thinks so.
What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job – let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.
I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate."
This may look like drama, but last time when this kind of thing happened (*cough*Megan Fox*cough*) we ended up with a new character. Which means we could end up with no Megatron or have Galvatron instead (or somebody else voicing Megatron). What do you think? Let your voice heard over at the Discussion Thread.
