    though Neeson has an epic voice, I vote Jon Bailey to replace Cullen.

    :rock  Jon could become the next Mel Blanc and voice everyone in the reboot. :D 

    Neeson's voice is awesome i can see as both Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus.

    I wanted Liam Neeson to be Sentinel Prime (back when we all thought he was gonna be a goodie).

    i would LOVE to hear Liam Neeson as Optimus Prime, it would also be great if he'd be some other character, like Ultra Magnus perhaps, cause i liked his role as Aslan from Narnia ;)  but i still prefer Cullen to be Optimus :)

    I honestly don't imagine Cullen NOT making time for Optimus. Liam Neeson, I honestly don't like that idea for him to be an Optimus, BUT I would like him to be someone heroic. Perhaps Prima, or Vector Prime?

    No thanks. I really enjoy Neeson but there's too much Aslan in his voice for my taste.

    Agree with you there. I'll always be picturing a talking lion instead of OP. Another Autobot for Neeson would be fine by me though.

    WOW! That voice is like a cross between Leonard Nimoy and Peter Cullen. It's AWESOME!

    That's actually a fantastic idea. I'd be down with this if and only if Cullen could not under any circumstances do the Prime role. That's HIS role, you know?

    Donald Sutherland would make a great Alpha Trion (in any TF continuity).

    I think Ian McKellan would make a pretty good Optimus Prime too.

    I'd be down for some Neeson-Prime. Especially as if we do get a reboot I doubt very much we'll get Cullen as Prime again. I think whoever directs it will want everything new, including voice actors.

    I thought Hasbro has gone on record for saying Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime from here on out, which explains why he's the only VA no matter the show to date.

    However, in the event that he cannot or is no longer able to be Optimus Prime, I'd rather they just made a new character to fill his role or find someone who can do a damn good job of copying the voice we all know to be Optimus Prime. Why not make an original character or bring over a Japanese Transformer to the American market with his Mr. Neeson or someone new voicing him/her?

    EDIT:

    He WOULD make a great A3!

    And hey, if for some reason we don't get a new live-action movie for many (10-15+ years), and they decide that they want a new VA for Optimus, there's always hope for Cullen to lend his voice for a character in a cameo. Be it Optimus-related or not. That's something that I can see them doing, just to appease us fans.

    The year 2021:
    Exec #1: "Hey, we've got [insert actor here] voicing Optimus. Man, the fans are gonna' be ticked that Cullen's not Prime again."
    Exec #2: "Yeah, but the script calls for Optimus Prime to speak to his mentor Vector Prime in a short scene. Why not bring Cullen in to voice Vector Prime for a couple of lines? I'm sure the fans would love that."

    :D ream:

    He'd have made a cool Sentinel.
