Trivia that mentions this person:
Transformers [2007]
  • From the original voice cast of [Transformers], Peter Cullen and Charles Adler were brought back. Cullen reprised his role as Optimus Prime; but Adler, who voiced the Autobot Silverbolt in the series, voices the Decepticon Starscream in the film.
  • Peter Cullen described reprising his role as Optimus Prime as "slipping into an old pair of very comfortable shoes that you haven't worn for a while," and was grateful to the fans for wanting and bringing him back.
  • Throughout the film, Bumblebee communicates using his radio, in a manner reminiscent of the Junkions, denizens of the planet Junk, featured in The Transformers: The Movie, who spoke entirely in the form of television broadcasts. Notable transmissions by Bumblebee include: - The voice of Lt. Uhura from [Star Trek] saying "Message from Starfleet." The role of Megatron/Galvatron was previously played by Leonard Nimoy and Frank Welker, who have also both played Spock in Star Trek. - A line, "Across the inanimate vastness of space," was taken from Orson Welles's infamous 1939 radio broadcast The War of the Worlds. Welles's final film was The Transformers: The Movie, where he voiced the planet-devouring Unicron. - A line by John Wayne from El Dorado. Wayne's voice has long been associated as an influence on Peter Cullen's voice for Optimus Prime.
    Transformers: Dark of the Moon [2011]
  • Peter Cullen's favorite moment in the film is when Optimus Prime meets with astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
    Transformers: The Last Knight [2017]
  • Michael Bay originally wanted to pass on directing this film, but was persuaded to do one more by Peter Cullen.
    The Predator [2018]
  • Garry Chalk, who plays a postal worker in the film, is known as the voice of Transformer's Optimus Primal and occasionally Optimus Prime. Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime, provided the Predator's voice in the original Predator (1987).
    The Iron Giant [1999]
  • Peter Cullen, Sean Connery, Frank Welker, and James Earl Jones were considered to voice the role of The Iron Giant, but it went over to Vin Diesel instead.
