Prime Beast Hunters
Exclusive: Transformers Prime Voice Cast Revealed Which Includes The Rock

By jay on Wednesday, September 08, 2010



Hasbro Studios has finally revealed the voice actors and characters for Transformers: Prime, along with information for the show.

The show will be adding some decent star power with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson joining the cast as the voice of Autobot Cliffjumper, Adam Baldwin (Chuck) as Breakdown, and Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters) as Agent Flower.

Oddly enough, the voice actors for the characters of Bumblebee, and Soundwave were not revealed. These characters were shown during BotCon 2010 back in June.

Two new Decepticons, Breakdown and Knockout have been added to the list of characters.

MAIN CHARACTERS

AUTOBOTS

  • Optimus Prime - Peter Cullen
  • Arcee - Sumalee Montano
  • Bulkhead - Kevin Michael Richardson
  • Ratchet - Jeffrey Combs
  • Bumblebee - Rumored as Josh Keaton (already voicing Jack)
  • Cliffjumper - Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Entertainment News International exclusive)

  • DECEPTICONS
  • Megatron - Frank Welker
  • Breakdown - Adam Baldwin
  • Knockout - Daran Norris
  • Starscream - Steve Blum
  • Soundwave - Unknown

  • HUMANS
  • Jack - Josh Keaton
  • Miko - Tania Gunadi
  • Raf - Andy Pessoa
  • June - Markie Post
  • Agent Flower - Ernie Hudson
  • THE SHOW

    The Transformer saga continues as Optimus Prime and the Autobots battle the evil Decepticons, led by Megatron. With the future of the human race hanging in the balance, three young teenagers become critical in helping the Autobots prevent the Decepticon Army from conquering Earth. Prepare to experience the world of Transformers like never before.

    The Transformer franchise sees the triumphant return of the Autobots characters to television in cutting edge computer-generated animation. The series both deepens the epic mythology of Autobots and Decepticons, while starting fresh for a new generation of viewers and future Transformers fans. With a bold and modern new look, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and others are back to roll out against Megatron’s latest plots to conquer Earth. The Autobots may be few against the Decepticons menace, but they find increased strength here on their home away from home via bonds they've forged with three human teenagers. Make no mistake, the Transformers series will deliver heavy metal action and nail-biting suspense

    The Rock TOTALLY fits Cliffjumper as a voice actor. I'm actually kind of looking forward to some video clips now.

    For the first season of BW there was no human interaction. Instead of human interaction they would sometimes reflect on what damage was caused becasue of their fighting. That is pretty much the point of humans being in the show, for us to relate it to real life and how it would effect humanity. W... read more

    ........I never understand this sentiment. Unless it's a Beast Wars/BM type of show, Transformers shows need human characters to interact with. Heck, even BW had cavemen in it. Transformers robots in disguise. If there weren't any humans, who would they be disguising themselves from?

    Actually, Spike was around 15 in Season 2, as he didn't have his license yet, and Carly did all the non-Autobot driving... What got me was that the Autobots "find increased strength here on their home away from home via bonds they've forged with three human teenagers". Kiss play,... read more

    In what appears to be last minute deal, Tranformers and other Hasbro shows will be staying on with Netfilx. As we reported previously, Hasbro and Netflix were to go their own way last month when a new deal fell through. However, without disclosing the terms of the detail. USA Today reports Netflix let be known that Hasbro Studios shows aren't going anywhere. Good news for Netflix customers who need their Transformers fix.
    Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
    While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
    Variety reports that the Hub will, as previously rumored, become the Discovery Family Channel on October 13th. Discovery will be taking a majority share in the network, but Hasbro will retain a daytime block of programming for its shows such as Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and presumably the upcoming Transformers Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for more details!
    Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reports that Polygon Pictures has walked away from the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with four awards, two for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. The other two were for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and between the two series Polygon has taken the Outstanding Special Class Animated Program award for the past three years running. We'll see if Robots In Disguise 2015 will help them maintain their lock on the category, but for now keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to full details!
