Cyberbilly, alot of voice work-whether commercials, narration, cartoon voices- is done long distance. An actor can be picked from a demo reel or a submission done for a specific job and  the fee is set with the agent.The work can be completely done from long distance. Weaving can walk into a studio Down Under and from direction given to him from a studio in California from Bay he can read his individual lines in a few hours and be out the door and onto other things without ever having met or knowing the full details of the project. It is a common practice. Some actors make an extremely good living doing this and their faces are never seen on TV or theaters.

True, Weaving probably could have sounded more diplomatic in his remarks, but he just happened to be caught at a very truthful moment. It was just a job to him, like being asked to say this soda, or this gasoline is the best for you. Do the job, go about your buisness, and wait for the checks to come in.

Weaving wouldn't be the first actor to take a job he had no real interest in.  Robert Beltran said the same thing about playing Chakotay on Star Trek: Voyager (Admittedly the character was all that well written) and Avery Brooks wasn't...um..."fan friendly" for awhile there either.   And let's face it, the Transformer movies aren't The Matrix...

"I LOVE the Transformer Movies" - gauleyboy420

 

You must be either 12 years old, or a complete idiot.

Nice one magic8.  We love trashing each other here like that.  (sarcasm)

What is YOUR favorite movie?  I am sure I can talk trash about what ever you enjoy to what ever it is.  So the next time you feel like spouting off like that, stick you foot in it and keep it to yourself.

 Thanks to marvel for blazing a fuking trail man.

You all talk about Transformers like these were actually good movies. I don't blame Hugo Weaving for not being a fan. If he'd seen these films, I'm sure he'd stop doing the voice of Megatron just by how dopey they were. Sure, get Frank Welker to play Megatron again. They wanted Megatron to have a deeper, more menacing tone of voice for the movies - something Frank Welker could not do, apparently - but what does it matter? It's not going to improve the quality of these films the least bit. They'll spend the third movie doing what they did with the past two: Lots of pointless explosions, story with plot holes so big you could drop Unicron through them, goofy dialogue, and advertising Megan Fox's body.

I have more respect for Hugo for not watching this crapfest TF'ers movies.  Frank Welker should have been Megatron all along, but really even his voice is not worth it for this series. 

I have decided I am not going to see TF3 no matter what.  I am going to see if I can handle that.  I have never avoided a major release of anything before, but for this I am willing to try.  I will have to think of a good penalty for myself if I do.

I just hope Transformers 3 is in 3D. I want to see one of the robots give the audience a golden shower
