Question submitted. Thanks for the heads-up, spirit!
Dear Mr. Cullen, in your first-ever BotCon panel, you cited Optimus Prime's compassion as one of his most endearing traits to you. How did you feel about the line reading "We will kill them all" in the latest movie?
If I was Peter and had to read questions like these, I'd hate the fandom with a passion. The patience this man must have...
Dawwww! You're welcome, B_O!
I asked about the gibberish
Ha, whatever. I'm sure that all fades away when he comes to BotCon, collects a fat check, and gets treated like a rockstar by a convention center full of people.
Mr Cullen is a lucky man . His career as a legendary voice artist is rejuvenated and solidified thanks to Transformers and the fans who pressured Michael Bay and the film producers to put him in the live movies. He owes his fans a debt of gratitude.
What is going on in this thread??? SMH.
Show some respect to a man who has given his voice to one of the greatest characters in TF history...and animation in general. This is not a place to spam.
sp--not on FB, hate it, but I hope you and B_O have some serious and kindly worded questions to ask him. Please let us know when they post his Q & A, thanks,
I must concur with mpl. I am disappointed to read GrantB and major revolt's posts. Mr. Cullen is always known for his graciousness and gratitude to the fans. Just because he has a successful career with the Transformers franchise is no reason to speak so disrespectfully of him. We've always respected him for being a class act and the defining voice of a cartoon character that many of us hold dear. He recognises the significance of his position and treats Optimus Prime's character with as much reverence as the fans do. He's a man to be respected as much as the culturally iconic character he voices.
If someone has a Facebook, could somebody please ask this for me? My brother got me banned from the page before I could ask.
Anyway, here's the question:
How long do you plan to continue to voice Optimus Prime?
Wow, i can not believe what people are saying in this thread..
Calm down guys, he's just a dude, not a prophet. I don't think anyone here said anything truly disparaging about the man himself.
Regarding my "10% candor" comment... Going by his past Q&As (in person and in print), and factoring in that this is an official Hasbro-controlled interview, I'm just saying that whatever he says will hardly be revelatory. The questions will be vetted, and beyond that, Peter has never been known to express any opinion that might possibly be perceived as even slightly disparaging to TF (e.g. he would never acknowledge that a line in the script might be out of character, for instance. At best, he might say it's not his job to second-guess the dialog).
Every answer will be that things were wonderful, he's always excited to be part of the TF legacy, etc etc etc. He's always very friendly, but I think he keeps his true opinions to himself. Once you see the pattern, his interviews become much less interesting, that's all.
Just need to add 'In regard to TF4' to the beginning...
