Nimoy Comments on Transformers 3 Casting

A little over a week ago Entertainment Weekly revealed that Leonard Nimoy was cast as the voice of Sentinel Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. What the article lacked was comment from anyone associated with the production. That has now been corrected in the latest issue on newsstands now as Nimoy briefly comments on the "run" role and "complex" character. The article is reproduced below to avoid the eye strain of reading the picture.
Leonard Nimoy unretires for Transformers sequel

Leonard Nimoy knows this sounds a little illogical. After announcing his retirement last April in the wake of his Spock role in J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek reboot and his guest turn on TV's Fringe, the 80-year-old actor has now signed on as the voice of long-lost Autobot leader Sentinel Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. "I'm doing it! I'm doing it! I'm back-back after, what is it, 25 years or something?" says Nimoy, referring to his work as the voice of Galvatron in 1986's animated The Transformers: The Movie.

"I have been through many resurrections in my career," he says. "I have died and come back. I have left and come back. I've been canceled and come back. I did intend to not do any more work. And the fact is, I don't consider this work. This is great fun." Nimoy is also rumored to be the voice of the dragon Smaug in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, though he says only: "I have heard about that rumor, and that's all I know about it."

Nimoy has already recorded two sessions with Transformers director Michael Bay. "I don't think I'm very privy to any plot points, but I'm seeing some interesting footage." Asked to describe Sentinel Prime, Nimoy says, "Complex," and then "Why are you laughing?" Then he laughs too. -Anthony Breznican


  1. "That has now been corrected in the latest issue on newsstands......"

    Dude, Nemoy tweeted confirmation HIMSELF four days ago that he is in Transformers.

    Perhaps you should spend more time researching than posting crap about the toys and piece of crap Transformers: Prime series.

  2. Nimoy, you prick.

    This is totally real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I know five to six sources that were in Chicago during filming who told me all this!!!!!!!!

  4. Yeah and your sources were all lying.

  5. With a name like I'manaprilfooler, you're only setting yourself up to be seen as a BULL$#%^*£~. I don't believe you one bit. Not buying it.


  6. ^^ya all bull I agree

    And that first Poster needs to stop smoking the funny stuff ! tflamb was clearly talking about the ARTICLE, being corrected..not some tweet, you twitt !!
    :D !!

  7. To I'manaprilfooler...

    Why use time and energy to write all that when it's so obvious that it's just bullshit?

  8. if you think that writing all of that out takes time and energy i feel sorry for you

  9. anon 5:49, time and energy are relative terms. But you're just being a smartass, aren't you? Or it couldn't don't believe this guy, do you? No...

  10. Hey guys this is that aprilfooler guy. I never got a chance to fool someone for real on april fools, so sorry if you guys hate me now :( really really sorry

  11. ^ Do not post inaccurate stuff here! You have a own site post it there!


  12. i have 100% of sure when trailer coming with scream 4 15/04

  13. I kinda doubt the dinobots being in this movie, but here's a new article that surfaced concerning them.

    I think they're just in the toy line and not in the movie.

  14. For the last time, Michael Bay hates the Dinobots!

    Anonymous 12:31 why dont you post the name of the site if your 100% sure? The last thing everybody here need is a liar.


  15. I don't know what is funnier. April Foolers blatantly fake post or the numb nuts that are getting worked up over it going 'Liar', 'prove it', etc. Personally I like to see people not taking it too seriously. Afterall it is a Comic book Movie, not the answer to life, the universe and everything. Anyway there is a new picture online of Megan Fox transforming into a tall blonde with weird lips. Honest. It's TRUE! Bwahahahahaha.
