Two high-profile actors have joined the cast of Transformers: Age of Extinction — well, at least their voices have. According to Michael Bay’s official website, John Goodman (Argo) and Ken Watanabe (Godzilla) are both voicing two new Autobots named Hound and Drift, respectively. Both characters are familiar sights in the Transformers mythology, but neither have appeared in Bay’s movies as of yet.
In a statement on his site, Bay said: “I am pleased to welcome two gifted and versatile actors, John Goodman and Ken Watanabe, to the world of Transformers.” He continued, “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.”
Outside of the returning Frank Welker and Peter Cullen, the rest of the voice cast includes Mark Ryan, Robert Foxworth, Reno Wilson, and Bender himself, John DiMaggio.
Transformers: Age of Extinction will hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
