Grain of Salt Theater: Megatron Casting
Allspark Forums member Matrix_Prime brings us this grist for the astf rumor mill. The entertainment site IESB.net claims that "multiple studio sources" have confirmed to that site that Frank Welker is soon to sign on to play Megatron in the Michael Bay film, reprising his G1 role opposite Peter Cullen's Optimus Prime. But just to prove that this is all still rumor, IESB also quotes "another reliable studio source" as listing Hugo Weaving as a top contender to play Megatron.
Welker? Weaving? An actor to be named later? We'll see. Until then, join the rampant speculation in this thread at the Allspark's astf discussion forum!
