You know...I prefer Weaving.

 

I mean, I can get as Nostalgia Drunk as the next guy, but I think keeping with the Optimus-is-homage-city and Megatron-is-a-blank-slate-we-get-to-create-with template that has been all of Transformers history since G1 ended will help some of the more...I'll use the word "protective"...the more protective fans see that this isn't an adaptation of the G1 cartoon into movie form, it's the next reboot, just like all the others, only in movie form.

I don't think I've heard Weaving before (never saw The Matrix).

 

But surely you saw LOTR?

Yes, but I'm not familiar with the names of the actors or voice actors. Care to enlighten me? :tfgrin

 

He was that head elf guy that sort of led the secret meeting about who would carry the ring...Liv Tyler's dad, I think...

Ah OK, thanks. I could some what see him voicing Megs. I still think David Kaye would be the better choice. :tfevil :tfevil
