    That's a matter of opinon, and in MY opinion, it sounds like a failed copy of Chris Latta - nothing more.

    I haven't really been in agreement with anyone's voice actor wish lists thus far, but do think that Mark Hamill for Starscream was a great suggestion. And talk about a no-brainer way to lure in the Star Wars fandom/geekdom. They just did it by signing Matrix/LOTR flavor-of-week Weaving, so you'd think they would apply it to as many other cross-genre celebs as possible for the remaining voices as well.

    He does alright with the other cartoony voices. Spike and Bumbleee are fine, for imitations of the cartoon. Pretty close with those. His Starscream really isn't that great, though. Not at all, really. I really hope it isn't him for the movie voice.

    Maybe he will be hte G1 voice for some unlockable G1 starscream in the game. That would be alright. I've heard much better Starscream imitations, though.

    I dont really want him related to Starscream in any way. I mean no disrespect, though. He does fine with other things. But Starscream, no.

    Hey, speaking of cross-genre celebs that would be perfect for Starscream...

    Because you never know with that deviant, fan-hating, inner-child molesting Bay. Damn you BAY! Damn you!

    Think about the (inner)children!

    When a fan works hard and does what he can to make it onto the franchise as an artist, we all rejoice, but, when a fan makes it as an actor working on it, we put him down? How exactly does that work?

    It's called jealousy.

    Because he still sucks.

    If he was good, we'd like him. However, I think his Starscream was terrible. However, his BB was amazingly accurate to G1 BB!

    Whatever that "ready to begin warp-gate procedure" thing was, it was beyond lame.

    He must not have sucked much for them to hire him over other people.

    Who says they hired him to do Starscream? No where on his page does it ever list any characters.

    That seems to be the assumption here.

    He does a good BB but his Starscream is rotten. No one but no one can actually do it like Latta did. Anyone else does too much shrieking or not enough so it sounds raspy.

    Didn't Daneil Ross have someone draw a fancomic of him saving Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg from Megatron or something like that and then sent it in with his audition? I recall hearing something along those lines a while back.

    As far as his Starscream goes, it's fine for...um...fandubs. But for a major motion picture or even a tie-in video game? I'd rather not.

    The bloke who did Vegeta in Dragonball Z could do a nice take on Screamer, echoing the past, but still different and dangerous to boot.

    Do you mean Chris Sabat, the current voice of Vegeta, or Brian Drummand, the original voice of Vegeta?

    Because if its Drummand then I'm all on board for that.

    This guy sounds reeeeeally similar to Sonny Strait, the FUNimation dub voice for Krillin. At least as Bumble.

    His Bumble is a pretty good fit for the character, but in a G1-like cartoon. Perhaps if they made a series out of TF Classics (yes, I know we're getting Heroes, but I can dream can't I?).

    His Starscream however has much to be desired. Personally, I think everyone needs to stop trying to imitate Chris Latta's Starscream and make the new Starscream a new Starscream.

    G1 Starscream was great, but we have most of G1 to watch him in. How about a new Starscream that is just as treacherous as the old one, but sounds a bit different? Or be like the French and make Starscream female (or at least a bishounen type?).

    Besides, any attempts to make new Starscream sound like old Starscream are going to instantly draw comparisons with old Starscream, who was unbeatable.

    R.I.P Chris Latta...


    Also Scatman Crothers, Don Messick, Robert Stack & (the guy who did Cyclonus)...

    He sounds very similar to the Starscream in beast wars, which was again a Latta imitaition, but I'll wait before judging on this one.
