Tommy Lee Jones.
He's another actor I can see being a perfect fit for Magnus.
Good choice for a voice.. but not sure for Magnus.. what about for Kup since Nimoy is no longer around
Maybe but I imagine more gruffer voice for Kup like R. Lee Ermey, Corey Burton, R. Bruce Elliot or the late George C. Scott.
Pardon me, I can only think of voice actors who could do Magnus well.
Corey Burton (TFA Megatron)
Mark Hamill (Ozai)
Garry Chalk (Optimus Primal)
Richard Newman (Vector Prime)
Christopher Sabat (Piccolo, Garter)
Pretty much this but I'm hearing Ironside more when I read the comics.
I see him more as Kup. Peter Weller should be Magnus
Gruffer????? You must be thinking of another Tommy Lee Jones. R. Lee Ermey is the voice I imagine for Kup when I read comics, but Tommy might just supplant it.
Corey Burton's voice for Ratchet screams Kup more than Ratchet to me.
Mark Hamill I can't see working.
Garry Chalk and Richard Newman would both suffice but I'd rather have Chalk be Optimus.
Christopher Sabat would be good if FUNimation did Transformers. Though I could also see Ed Blaylock (Fuhrer King Bradley) as Magnus.
How about Karl Urban?
The others mentioned are great but many of them strike me as a bit old for Magnus. Might just be me, though, I always think of him as being younger than that (Optimus' baby brother and all). Not by much, but still.
I'll shut up now.
Tommy Lee Jones was my first thought. Daniel Craig maybe. Sean bean but only if they are going to kill him off.
Karl Urban is a unique choice.
I've gotten used to Magnus being as old as Optimus.
Clint Eastwood!! All the way
But if they want a younger sounding magnus.... Then the guy who voiced Marcus fenix in gears of war would imo be perfect
John DiMaggio who is already Leadfoot and Crosshairs in the movies.
INB4 UltraAlanMagnus approves.
When mini Magnus bot is revealed to be Minimus Ambus the actor needs to make me believe that he can rock an awesome mustache.
I still going with Liam Neeson as Ultra Magnus.
Now that's a kickass idea.
