In Transformers: Age of Extinction, some autobots just may sound familiar to film buffs. Michael Bay announced via Twitter today that John Goodman and Ken Watanabe have been cast to voice a couple of gigantic alien robots in the fourth installment of his popular Transformers franchise.
Goodman will voice Hound, who’s an Oshkosh Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle in his car form, and Watanabe will be Drift, a former Decepticon who switches teams to play for the good guys and who’s sometimes a 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
Meanwhile, Peter Cullen will return to voice Optimus (it really wouldn’t be the same without him) and Frank Welker will voice Galvatron, introduced for the first time in this franchise. The rest of the autobots are rounded out by John DiMaggio as Crosshairs, Mark Ryan as Lockdown, Robert Foxworth as Ratchet and Reno Wilson as Brains.
