Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy

I was looking through pictures of the various Transformers from the live action movies one day and it suddenly dawned on me; the cgi guys made Optimus look just like his voice actor. Just add a fuzzy upper lip and it's Robo Cullen! Originally created and posted March 23rd, 2010 by me on FA.

And the voice of KARR from the original Knight Rider series, too.

Yup, and he came back to voice KARR in the 08 KR series as well.  **grins**

Yeah it is.  Often you see that in cartoons where the character is drawn to look somewhat like the actor voicing them, but not usually with CGI robots, except for Optimus Prime for the live action movies, though Sentinel Prime looks a lot like Leonard Nemoy, who voiced him in Dark of the Moon.

Leonard Nemoy also voiced Galvatron in the 1986 Transformers: the Movie for Generation 1.  He's best known for his role as Spock from the original Star Trek series, which my mom grew up watching in the 1960's, and the first six Star Trek movies which I grew up watching (as well as the two new ones).  So he was the first Star Trek actor to end up in Transformers, followed by Jeffery Combs and George Takai.
