Age of Extinction
Could Leonard Nimoy Voice The Fallen?

By bwbm on Tuesday, March 24, 2009



Continuing the string of possible pleasing of the fans, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen screenwriter Roberto Orci has put up the possibility that Leonard Nimoy may return to the Transformers Universe and lend his voice to The Fallen.

"I actually talked to [Mr. Nimoy] about it, [and] given the odd coincidence that he is [Director] Michael Bay’s cousin through marriage," Mr. Orci writes on the official website of producer Don Murphy.

However, don't get your hopes up too high yet. "Fan outcry has also put [Frank] Welker in the running."

This is an interesting development, as Mr. Bay has previously said that he'll pursue Mr. Welker for the voice of Soundwave, but not The Fallen.

Could this signal that Mr. Welker will be voicing two voices for Revenge? Or is Mr. Orci simply covering his own hide so we don't chew it if Mr. Nimoy doesn't get the job?

After so much time on Earth, the Fallen should know some native languages by now. A little off-topic, if Ultra Magnus was in Transformers 3, it would be neat if Kevin Costner did his voice. That way we could get two actors who played Elliot Ness as Ultra Magnus.

The Fallen doesn't need a voice... but if they insist on having him talk in the movie, then at least make it where he only speaks Cybertronian.

Saying lines as ones-self doesn't an actor make. He is Mr Spock, all other roles are lackluster hell even Stephen Hawkins shows more emotion in his voice...

Wait, did this article just implicitly suggest that the Fallen is actually/is part of/is analog to Galvatron? No, wait wait, be more cynical. They're just including Nimoy to catch some fan splash-off from the upcoming new Star Trek movie. The fact that Nimoy also has a small connection to the ... read more

Leonard Nimoy's got a great voice for voice acting, and he obviously enjoys it seeing how many times he's voiced himself in Both The Simpsons and Futurama. I'm pretty sure if they're actually trying to get him in on this that he'll do it.
