Transformers 3 Update: Leonard Nimoy IS Sentinel Prime!

It may be April Fools and this may sound like a joke, but I just got wind of this very awesome piece of Transformers movie news, and I’m inclined to believe that this is the genuine article. Somehow and some way, director Michael Bay has cast another legendary presence to his next Transformers flick hitting this July… and by legend, I mean TRUE LEGEND!

As posted in Slash Film and announced first by Entertainment Weekly’s website, it appears that legendary Star Trek actor and Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, will be voicing the role of Sentinel Prime, predecessor and mentor figure to Optimus Prime! Besides his iconic status as the Vulcan who served aboard the U.S.S Enterprise (a role he reprised in 2009’s Star Trek), Nimoy is a legend in various forms of media and has provided his voice for several shows back in the day, including Transformers!

Those who follow his credentials well will know that he provided the voice of Galvatron in 1986’s animated classic flick, Transformers The Movie, and now he returns, this time in the side of good as Sentinel Prime! Nimoy just celebrated his 80th bday a couple of days ago, and now this piece of news definitely gets my gears up and excited to watch this flick all the more, and together with Peter Cullen voicing Optimus Prime, Michael Bay may redeem himself yet with his last hurrah in the Transformers franchise! For more info, visit the source posts over at Slash Film and EW!
Transformers: Dark of the Moon is set to launch another wave of Cybertronian battles this July 7!

Yes… Leonard Nimoy DID SING the Bilbo Song before… Hehe!XD
