John Goodman and Ken Watanabe Added to TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION

We are just two months out from the release of Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction". At this point, any changes to production would usually scare fans excited for the property. But in the case of the two new additions today, they are purely vocal talents, so there's nothing to really worry about.

John Goodman and Ken Watanabe are now set to voice Autobots Hound and Drift. Goodman especially has a very distinctive voice, so it will be a bit of a thrill to hear him bring the Hound to life. He is coming off his exception role in "Inside Llewyn Davis" and Watanabe will next be seen in Gareth Edwards' re-imagining "Godzilla".

On the additions, Bay stated, "I am pleased to welcome two gifted and versatile actors, John Goodman and Ken Watanabe, to the world of Transformers. And to re-team with Peter and Frank, who have brought Transformers characters alive from the beginning. I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best voice talent in the business, and together we will introduce several exciting new robots to fans of the franchise around the world."

Peter Cullen has of course made Optimus Prime famous, so we too are pleased he is returning. Mark Wahlberg is the main star in this one, along with Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer.

Are you glad Goodman and Watanabe have joined the cast? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I know I'm in the minority but I want Iron Giant to win over Lion King. I LOVE Iron Giant. Lion King is my favourite Disney animated movie but I balled like a baby watching Iron Giant. Also to the people complaining that no anime is moving on and it's all Toy Story... Miyazaki should've had a few films that moved on and Howl's Moving Castle is 1000x better than Frozen but there is a reason Pixar and Disney films are all popular, they're great and it's tough to get upset about upsets because these are all amazing films. And the Toy Story's are gonna do well because they should. There ratings on Rotten Tomatoes are 100, 100 and 99. My picks are... Iron Giant Toy Story Up Aladdin Toy Story 3 Monsters Inc. Beauty and the Beast Toy Story 2
