In some late additions, Ken Watanabe and John Goodman have joined Michael Bay’s TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION. Both will be used for their vocal talents, with the pair providing the voices for Autbots Drift and Hound, respectively.

On the additions, Bay himself said, “I am pleased to welcome two gifted and versatile actors, John Goodman and Ken Watanabe, to the world of TRANSFORMERS. And to reteam with Peter and Frank, who have brought TRANSFORMERS characters alive from the beginning. I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best voice talent in the business, and together we will introduce several exciting new robots to fans of the franchise around the world.”

The Peter and Frank in question are Peter Cullen and Frank Welker, who will be providing the voices of Optimus Prima and Galvatron, respectively. Additionally, John DiMaggio is voicing Crosshairs, Mark Ryan is Lockdown, Robert Foxworth is Ratchet, and Reno Wilson is Brains. Playing the human characters, the fourth of Bay’s TRANSFORMERS movie also features Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is currently set for a 27th June US release, with the UK getting the film on 10th July.
