Just forget the words and sing along

Forget Shia LaBeouf as Spike Witwicky. Forget Jon Voight as the Secretary of State of the USA. The one bit of casting news that we TransFans have been waiting for is who is doing the voices of the Autobots and Decepticons in Transformers.

And today, they announced who is voicing the biggest, baddest Autobot of them all...the pure model of epitomy and heroism...Optimus Prime.

So, are you ready? Optimus Prime will be voiced by....

Peter Cullen!!

Sadly, some of you are probably asking, "Who the hell is Peter Cullen?"

Well, Peter Cullen did the voice of Optimus Prime on the 1980s cartoon. Cullen is still quite active as a voice actor, doing tons of movie trailers and stuff. He's also Disney's official voice of Eeyore.

Needless to say, I'm happy.

Now, we hope and pray for the announcement that Frank Welker (the original voice of Megatron) will be voicing Megatron.
