Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Octane with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Transformers

Octane is a Decepticon Triple Changer, changing into a tanker truck and a cargo plane. He is greedy and untrustworthy, and is willing to make deals with Autobots and Decepticons alike. However, he is tolerated for both his Triple Changing abilities, and for the remarkable quality of the fuel he delivers.

I felt the Southern accent that Barry used was inappropriate for this character. Beau brought in a much stronger presence, so he's my vote.

Beau Weaver really brings this smug conman to life.

Barry's voice sounds very strained and incredibly awkward here. The accent sounds very off, honestly, everything about this whole performance just sounds off.

Beau's natural charismatic voice translates well in playing a very con man like Decepticon. His smooth voice just sounds great here and it's very entertaining to listen to.

For a future VA, Matthew Mercer, but I'd say if they can get a bigger name, James Woods

Beau Weaver definitely.

Barry Gjerde's southern accent isn't too inappropriate, the voice and performance were.

what would be funny if Jon Bernthal or Josh Lucas could voice Octane?

I wonder of John DiMaggio would make a good Octane?

@Finister2 I think John DiMaggio would be Awesome as Octane. And here's a funny idea, What about Brad Garrett as Octane
