Trivia & Fun Facts:

Birth Name: George Orson Wells

Also credited as: G.O. Spelvin, O.W. Jeeves

It was once thought that Leonard Nimoy took over the role of Unicron in Transformers the Movie however Susan Blu confirmed that it was false and Orson finished his lines before he died.

Has been often imitated by voice actor Maurice LaMarche

Once ate 18 hot dogs in one sitting.

One of only five actors to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his first screen appearance.

Despite his reputation as an actor and master film-maker, he maintained his membership in the Magicians' Union, and regularly practiced sleight-of-hand magic in case his career came to an abrupt end.

A bootleg tape of a short-tempered (and foul-mouthed) Orson Welles arguing with a recording engineer during a voice-over session has been widely distributed. It was used as the basis for an episode of the show Pinky and the Brain, with The Brain reading cleaned-up verions of Orson's rantings. Ironically, the actor who plays The Brain, Maurice LaMarche, dubbed the voice of the actor who portrays Orson Welles in Ed Wood.

Died while working on Transformers: The Movie.

R.I.P. Orson Welles, if he were still alive today, he'd be age 101.

@Nightmare Crusher And in Pinky and the Brain: "We know a little place in the American far west where Charlie Briggs chops up the finest prairie fed beef and tastes- this is a lot of tripe, you know that?"

Happy 100th birthday and RIP Orson Welles.

Such an awesome radio performer and director. His War of the Worlds adaptation was just a stroke of genius.

And, of course, he gave an awesome performance as Unicron.

Happy Birthday and RIP Orson Welles!

One of the most influential figures in Hollywood history from the movie Citizen Kane to The War of the Worlds Scare of 1938 and of course his final role as the voice of Unicron.
