And your point is?
Like Frank Welker is the end all to be all voice for Megatron?
Also, I think it's more the fact that maybe he seen the movie at least once, happened to glance at a cartoon or 2, but hasn't really immersed himself into the franchise like the fandom has.
Some actors immerse themselves in the material to nail the performance to the best of their ability. Sadly this reeks of collecting a paycheck and not really caring about the character, but that said he did a good job of Megs IMO.
Well, still, the guy did a great Job voicing Megatron nonetheless.
See, this is just like Megan fox saying that when she auditioned, she didnt knoww Mikaelas role. So, this is bullshit
Meh. As long as he keeps giving awesome performances I don't think it's something that us fans should care TOO much about >_>
Megatron doesn't care about Transformers, so why should Weaving? It's the ultimate method technique!
I don't understand what point you're trying to make here. Are you saying that the actors are lying, or that the production of the movies is bullshit?
I think it's less about "personality" than it was simply about marketing. Hugo Weaving's Megatron is REALLY generic. There are 100 voice actors out there who could have delivered the same "gravelly-voiced over-the-top villain" performance equally well... but they wouldn't have had the high-profile geek-fetish marquee recognition of Matrix's Agent Smith and LOTR's Elrond. He certainly didn't get the role for playing Mitzi in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!
Thanks to those 2 roles, Weaving is firmly entrenched in the sci-fi hall of fame. He could retire tomorrow and spend the rest of his life making Convention appearances with Tasha Yarr if he wanted to.
Anyway, all in all, Weaving's comments in the interview regarding Transformers are still way better than what Orson Welles had to say regarding his role as Unicron.
For God's sake yes.
This thread is a prime example of the Fandom's tendencies to not understand what the hell they're talking about.
I laughed my ass off.
Especially in regards to how movies work.
"There's two Barricade cars? Why would there be two Barricades? Does he get cloned or something?"
"There's Constructicon clones? Screw the cost of CGI, they were obviously too lazy to design more robots!"
Meh. Comes with the territory of acting.
Give the man a break. He was fantastic in ROTF.
If it was about marketing, why did not a single trailer, poster, tie in, or generally anything so much as mention Weaving is Megatron?
They didn't do it for the marketing, as there was no *marketing* about it. They did it because Bay liked Weavings voice more than Welkers. That's it.
W-w-w-what? What do they do, have Weaving do the voice work then lock him in a box untill the next movie begins post-production?
Not everyone likes to take a look in the toilet after they shit.
I'm sorry, that was wrong. Apologies.
