I curious as to what his Optimus Primal will sound like. While I personally would have cast him as a G1 inspired Sentinel Prime, this could work..... Though Gary Chalk will always remain the best Optimus for me.

He is so amazingly chilling as Slade. The slow, smooth delivery is just perfect. Best part of the show.

I'm glad he's finally going to be voicing in the Transformers franchise at long last this year.....even if it's in the awful Machinima series. Him playing Optimus Primal is an interesting casting choice, though I would've much rather had him voice Overlord instead. That said even Garry Chalk has come on record saying he approved on Ron voicing Primal which is rather nice. It's one of the few casting choices I look forward to hearing in an otherwise awful to mediocre series.

Also nice he got to return to voice the Stabbington Brothers in Tangled: The Series.

Happy Birthday Ron Perlman!

When he's used well, he can deliver pretty good performances.

I really liked him as Kurtis Stryker and Scorpion in the Mortal Kombat cartoon, Orion, Sinestro and Armaggon.

I am the thing that keeps you up at night. The evil that haunts every dark corner of your mind. I will never rest, and neither will you. Happy Birthday, Ron Perlman! His performance as Slade (aka Deathstroke) in the 2k3 Teen Titans show is a stone cold classic, that can't be stated enough. Of course he also gave very solid takes as Justice and Hellboy.

My other favorite Perlman roles are Mr. Lancer, Armaggon, Abomination, Lich King, Xibalba, Clayface/Matt Hagen, Killer Croc/Waylon Jones, Arbor, and Sozin.

@GreenGoblin75 It's a shame but I think Josh Brolin will actually do the role well.

I can see from the studios point of view. Ron's is in his 60's and in the long term if they want to make the most out of Cable and Deadpool someone like Brolin whose a bit younger but aged will suffice in the long term.

Happy birthday, Ron.

I love him as Hellboy (fingers crossed that they make a third one before he gets too old). Another one of my favorite performances is Deathstroke (or rather Slade) so deliciously sinister and calculating. I also love his Armaggon, Sinestro, Clayface, Firelord Sozin, Ramon Lamon, and of course Adventure Time's the Lich.

Happy Birthday Ron Perlman!

One of the coolest voices from my childhood and one of my all time favourite actors. It's his performance as Slade/Deathstroke from Teen Titans that made me a huge fan of him. Such a creepy, haunting yet cool sounding voice mixed with a foreboding charisma, it helped made Slade one of the greatest villains ever.

Then of course there is also his other best role Hellboy. I don't think Guillermo Del Toro could have picked a better actor to play the lovable cigar smoking demon. Ron really got the character and nailed him to a tee making him one of the greatest superhero movie castings of all time.

I also enjoyed his performances as Fire Lord Sozin, The Lich, Clayface, Killer Croc, Bane, Rumor, Sinestro, Orion, Mr. Lancer, The Stabbington Brothers, Xibalba, Luther Braxton, Hannibal Chau and of course as the narrator of the Fallout series.

I also really love his performance as Armaggon on this season of TMNT, he's such a fun bounty hunting henchman villain.

And his Jax-Ur in Superman: The Animated Series was also pretty great too even though he was more like Zod than the character from the comics.

Happy Birthday Ron Perlman!

He'll always be one of my favourite actors all round.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I would say that he's probably too old for such an action-oriented role, but considering he plays Hellboy, I guess that's a moot point.
PsychicVoiceSpy
said at 1:10 PM on Sat Feb 15 2014
@CatsTuxedo I can see why you would think that, but he seems to stay in good shape and he has an uncanny resemblance to the character, and aside from that, a stunt-double could take over in the more physically exerting action scenes. If the character kept his mask on a lot of the time, pulling this off would be easy.
