    Any suggestions? He's a main character so I'm thinking they may go with a celebrity to do the voice.

    I suppose they could get Judd Nelson back. I wouldn't mind that, they just may want someone more high profile.

    I'd like him to have a distinct voice but also be able to convey a youthful arrogance.

    Off hand I can't think of anyone that, in my mind, would seem to fit.

    I really liked Smokescreen in Transformers Prime. He was that type of character. He had a good voice for it. Someone like that maybe.

    If there is one thing the movives have done decently well(besides music) with it's voice acting. I'd imagine the vouce would be pretty Hot Rod-ish but by some guy we've never heard of.


    I don't get where all the "a Celeb should voice them" thing comes from. Get a fucking actor.

    Celebrity actor I meant. Such as John Goodman voicing Hound. That's just my guess, since Hot Rod is a significant character.

    So in other words just an actor. I don't think they got John Goodman because they wanted someone famous, they got him because he could do the role. I mean Mark Ryan has been in the last 3 films, John Dimmaggio has voiced two characters.

    eh. good points. But they did get Ken Watanabe also. Regardless, I'm happy with them using professional voice actors. I think those guys (and girls) are amazing.

    John Goodman's not just an actor, he's a world famous celebrity practically anyone in the world would recognize. That's what they were talking about, obviously.

    It's not like these movies have Kim Kardashian in a voice acting role, lol.

    Come on now.

    Judd Nelson proved with Transformers Animated he still had it. If he was the voice then I'll be interested to see if he aged or not.

    What about Chris Pratt ? I reckon he would be an excellent choice. He has the cockiness and personality to be a good hot rod. Plus I don't see hot rod having a lot of dialog in the film as he is only mainly in uk parts. So I do not think it would take a lot of time to do his voice in all honesty.

    The one thing I do not want for hot rod to have as a voice is another stupid radio gimmick like bumblebee has. For the love of god Bay "NO" just "NO"

    The first names that popped into my head were Michael B Jordan or Chris Evans! :lol  Seems i subconsciously associate Hot Rods character with the Human Torch! Guess it makes sense, they both got flames!

    Nathan Fillion can protray an interesting enthusiasm as shown in Castle... that could work. But what about Owen Wilson or even Jonny Harris from Murdoch Mysteries

    It doesn't really matter much who the voice is when he's probably only going to have 2 or 3 lines total.

    I don't understand why this is even a worry. It wouldn't make sense for him to have a radio voice as well.

    12 bucks it's Mark Ryan.

    But I'd take Judd or maybe Owen Wilson.
