A Prime Endorsement: Cullen Wants Bay for TF5

Mike Reyes Of Cinema Blend recently sat down with voice actor Peter Cullen as part of a press event for the upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray release of Transformers 4 Age of Extinction. He took the opportunity to ask the voice of Optimus Prime his thoughts on director Michael Bay’s most recent rumblings that he may step away from the film franchise that he has helped build. Hit the jump for Peter’s ringing endorsement.

“I have a great deal of respect for him. He generates a great deal of excitement and energy. He’s really a hands-on director. My son is a stunt man and worked in Chicago doing a lot of the driving sequences…he said he’s a very, very diligent, hands-on guy. He creates a great deal of energy and puts everybody on their toes. I would certainly miss him. I think he’s brilliant, his mind is unbelievable. “
“Michael if you’re [reading] this, I certainly hope you are coming back.”
