Leonard Nimoy joins Transformers: Dark of the Moon voice cast
Please use this thread to discuss the Leonard Nimoy joins Transformers: Dark of the Moon voice cast news story on the main site.
Entertainment Weekly.com has posted an article by Anthony Breznican that announced that Leonard Nimoy has joined the cast of Transformers Dark of the Moon and will voice Sentinel Prime.
"Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, has joined the film as the voice of
Sentinel Prime, the predecessor of Optimus Prime whose wrecked body is
seen in the teaser trailer, found crash-landed on the moon by the Apollo
11 astronauts in 1969. Later, after being brought to earth, he takes
the disguise form of a fire engine in the movieâs massive, climactic
battle through Chicago.
Apart from his obvious Star Trek cred, Nimoy also has a history with Hasbroâs shape-shifting alien robots: He was the voice of Galvatron in 1986â²s TheTransformers: The Movie.
Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay had toyed with the idea of inviting him to play a voice in the second movie, Revenge of the Fallen,
but wasnât sure he could pay the veteran actor enough. âI was too
scared to ask him,â the director says. âPlus, heâs married to Susan Bay,
whoâs a cousin of mine. So I had to be careful. Iâve met him at family
functions. But he told me, âI would be honored. Iâm glad to be back!ââ"
