John Leguizamo! ;)

Either that, or Sonic fan pressure will have Stumpy Joe back in the booth before the movie comes out. ;)

Wouldn't that be a given? Can't recall anytime a video game voice was used for a big budget movie.

Do the Transformers voices count...? I’m not a fan but if there was a game then surely they used the animated/feature voices?

Yes, they used Peter Cullen and Frank Welker from the cartoon.

Much as I just think Transformers is/are dumb (Bumblebee was fairly "okay" but by the end of that, they’d given up even any pretence of these things transforming and just did hyper whirry-blurry FX and didn't even attempt to give the illusion of different parts moving around to make up the car or robot, which just overstated how crap the concept really is), but Cullen does have the most awesome voice, especially when he's Primed.

Bumblebee was trying to do “more faithful” transforming to the cartoon by making them
“simpler” (a bit of a shame given how cool they looked in the Bay films).
