USA Today had the pleasure to talk with the legendary voice actor Peter Cullen about reprising his role as Optimus Prime for Michael Bay‘s Transformers: Age Of Extinction.“He is exactly who he was from the very original concept,” Cullen says of Prime. “I’ve always felt a hero should have the qualities that are inspiring and helpful and fatherly and at the same time (be) courageous. I don’t see those character traits changing at all.”
“Though Larry’s gone,” Peter Cullen says, “he lives on in my mind as Optimus Prime because he was my hero.”
30 years ago he became Optimus Prime and in a month’s time we will hear Mr. Cullen again.
