We've been debating on how the characters should look in the new Transformers films... however, nobody's been talking about how they should sound . As in, who should voice them? For Ironhide, I think bring back Jess Harnell, because Bayverse Ironhide was one of the better characters whereas Ratchet could be nobody else but Jeffrey Combs, because I like the idea of "grouchy old medic with a heart of gold" Ratchet that Animated and Prime did so well. For Jazz, whilst part of me is saying bring back Phil LaMarr, I think it'd be pretty fun if Jazz was voiced by a famous black musician - in that case, I'd probably go with Jamie Foxx or Will. I. Am (if Kanye West comes anywhere near Transformers, I'll kill the man in his bed). For Windblade, if she turns up, go with Jing Tian or Riniko Kikuchi. Given Windblade has a heavily Asian-"coded" design, casting an Asian actress only seems appropriate. Same with Drift; his design is heavily influenced by Japanese culture, so it only seems obvious. For Hot Rod, I'd go with Joe Keery - the guy who played Steve on Stranger Things. Given that character was heavily influenced by Judd Nelson (Hot Rod's original actor), it'd be rather fitting. Grimlock, on the other hand, could only ever be Jason Momoa - watch Aquaman and try not to think "This guy'd be great as Grimlock". However, he'd have to be speaking normally - the "Me Grimlock" speaking style was shite. The other Dinobots… I don't know. I privately think Slug, for some reason, should be Scottish - in that case, either actually get John Rhys-Davies or someone who can sound like John Rhys-Davies. For Megatron, whilst Welker'd be ideal, I think somebody like Ron Perlman or Stephen Lang'd be pretty good - they've both got commanding voices, which would be great for Megatron. For Starscream, I would say Jemaine Clement - watch Rio and try not to think "Starscream" whenever Nigel talks. For Skywarp, I'd go with Andrew Kishino, who voiced Janja on The Lion Guard - Skywarp needs a thuggish-sounding voice. For Shockwave, whilst Jon Bailey or Corey Burton coming back'd be nice, I want to see what Benedict Cumberbatch or Michael Fassbender could do with the role - listen to David in Prometheus and not think "Shockwave". Or, if they're looking to emulate Sobolov's performance from TF: Prime (which was actually one of the better performances in that show), James Spader or Michael C. Hall'd be great.
