If you’re asking yourself who is David Kaye right now, you don’t know your ass from your elbow! If you’re any kind of animation fan worth your salt, you’ll know David as the voice of Optimus Prime from the newest Transformers Animated series or any number of Megatrons including Beast Wars (arguably the best by many). That’s right baby, we’re back into voice acting!
In addition to a near infinite number of animated voice rolls, Kaye has lent his talents to advertising, some of your favorite video games including Ratchet & Clank and has put his body in front of the camera as well on shows like Battlestar Galactica.
Now, we might wax on (not a Karate Kid pun, I swear!) about his different roles, why he likes voice acting, how he got into it or whether or not he’s related to a real pirate that has been immortalized on the silver screen, but the reason many TF fans will want to DL this interview is to hear something exclusive…. something never before recorded… an impromptu, on the spot mad lib of new Optimus having a few choice words with Beast Wars Megatron! No one can front on something like that, it’s pretty freaking sweet!
You should check out how many shows this guy has done on imdb. Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz, Monsters Vs. Aliens, Fido, Inuyasha, X-Men Evolution, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and the list goes on and on….
