Slash Film came across an interesting note in the Don Murphy forums where Star Trek and Transformers scribe Roberto Orci says he has spoken with Leonard Nimoy about voicing the character of the Fallen in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Orci posted:
I actually talked to him about it, given the odd coincidence that he is Michael Bayâ€™s cousin through marriage, but fan outcry has also put Welker in the running.
Nimoy provided the voice of Galvatron in the original 1986 animated Transformers: The Movie, but the Welker Orci mention is Frank Welker who voiced many of the characters in the original 1980s animated television series including Megatron, Soundwave and Galvatron.
I know this isn’t huge news, but being a Nimoy fan I found it mildly interesting.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24.
