Clooney is Optimus Prime

Autobots, uhh  transform and uhh, hey Ratchet, there's something between your teeth..

Take this with a grain of salt, people. But it seems that Optimus Prime as found a voice in George Clooney. Michael Bay is set to direct (I'm still adjusting to the idea)and it seems like the star of ER and The Perfect Storm is going to lead the Autobots to face their battle to destroy the evil forces ooooof.....the Decepticooooons. (place guitar solo here).
I don't quite know what to think yet. It seems like the could do worse. Way worse. But I always thought of Prime to be more in the personality of Lance Henriksen. You may have seen him in Aliens as Bishop, the likeable android who scared the living crap out of Bill Paxton's character with the knife stabbing trick where he stabbed circles around Bill's fingers. Oh, and he was also the voice of the Silverback in Disney's Tarzan and, of course, profiler Frank Black in the defunct Chris Carter series Millenium, (my favorite TV series of all time, if I may add). Let's just say, when you listen to his voice, you would expect him to be 30 feet tall, made of steel and look like a giant robot made out of pieces of a red 16 wheeler truck.

Props to the
