Could we possibly be more fired up about the upcoming Transformers Movie?!  Probably not!   Dang, all signs poiint to this being one kick tailpipe film!   For those who missed the live Yahoo webcast Q/A with screenwriters Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, here is a summary!  Sorry I couldn't get more!  My hands can only type so fast!  Some of what's below are exact quotes, the rest are paraphrased highlights:

Okay, the cast will be:  (drumroll please!)

OPTIMUS PRIME: noble, wise,  shakespearian style commander

BUMBLEBEE:  He's the same underdog character, the scout, the one that comes ahead of the Autobots, the smallest of the gang.

JAZZ: is rock and roll, he’s the guy who believes if you can’t do something w/ style don’t do it all.  He’s the most contemporary, blends into other culture better.  He’ll be.

RATCHET: will have a new form (didn't say what it would be), the science officer, repair tf’s wounded in battle, the smartest cybertronian ER, he’s the one, will be tied to this character.

IRONHIDE:  Can make any transformer bust an o-ring just by looking his way.  A "classic cowboy”.  Optimus’ oldest friend.  >They talked about the dynamic of their relationship despite their great personality differences.

MEGATRON: not just pure evil, but we really wanted to flush out the particulars of his evil, His is social Darwinistic view.  It’s his god given right as the most evolved being to rule.

STARSCREAM: an ~~ type, secretly plotting to dethrone Megatron.  We’ll see a lot of that dynamic in the movie.  He’s the Starscream character we all grew up with.

BRAWL:  An extremely pissed off Decepticon. Always ready for a battle, even when he's over his head.  He’s the heavy lifter of the group.  The first into battle. With the Decepticons tried to go with not necessarily just the most recognizable characters.  Also gave us an inkling that they’re not just going to be original first season G1 favorites.

BONECRUSHER:  Closest thing to a Constructicon.  He hates all the other Decepticon.  He responds... (Shoot sorry I missed this part!)  Even if you try to make him your friend he'll hate you more.

BARRICADE, the hunter of the group.  The epotime of Decepticon hunter. His’ alt mode is the most concealed.  For this reason he camouflages himself as a symbol of safety.

SCORPONOK/SCORPONOK?:  When you  see him int the movie you’ll see that the form will make sense for where he's at (presumably in the dessert...)

FRENZY: a character that had initially started him out as soundwave, the way this character developed Frenzy embodies different personality characteristics.  So rather than trying to make him Soundwave, and fitting a square peg in a round hole, we just made him Frenzy.  He has a smaller form, able to infiltrate, every and any place he wants.  A stealth spy, he's always the first tier attack.

BLACKOUT: Biggest,  he is the mover and shaker.  He can clear an area, get people off the battle field...

As soon as I heard Jazz was in the movie I went to imdb to look up Scatman Crothers. Hoping that HE could be the voice of Jazz AGAIN!... Wow. Unfortunately not. He died in November of 1986, 3 months after the release of the original TFTM. Wow. I did not know that. How sad. He died of lung cancer at the age of 76... We'll miss you Scatman...

SO, who in the world has that kind of raspy, cooler-than-cool-dude voice that could fill those shoes, worthy to be the voice of Jazz?????

So nothing on any voice casting other than Peter Cullin? *sigh* (Missed the whole sucks sometimes) I think it would be awesome to have David Kaye voice Megatron - Have like an old school-to-new school thing going. As for Jazz? Not feeling Chris Rock; too high pitched. Eddie Murphy maybe? (cliche I know)

I'm sad too, I also wanted Soundwave. That said I am really excited to see Scorponok. He should rock.

For Jazz, how about the coolest man on the planet...Samual L. Jackson. C'mon he was Shaft for crying out loud

Samuel might do it , but how about charlie murphy??? think Chapelle , and boondocks ... plus it would boost him in Hollywood even more then now ... and for Iron hide who Peter Cullen did his voice too, which would be nice , but how about gary busey ??? and bubble bee it would be cool to see jerry seinfeld ... oh and for megatron , I can think of no other then Gary oldman ... the ultimate bad guy . and star scream man thats a hard one dude why Chris lotta???? why did you have to over do it , but mark hamill is still alive , and his joker tweeked a bit would be right on the money
