In case you thought Michael Bay's TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON needed a little more geek credibility, it's certainly got it now!

EW is reporting that the legendary Leonard Nimoy will be lending his smooth vocal stylings to that of 'Sentinel Prime' - the predecessor of Autobot leader Optimus Prime - whose robotic remains can be seen in the film's initial teaser trailer.

Sentinel was found crash-landed on the moon by the Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969. Here's EW with more on his appearance. Beware, though: SPOILERS!

"Later, after being brought to earth, he takes the disguise form of a fire engine in the movies massive, climactic battle through Chicago."

TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON explodes into theaters July 1st.
Extra Tidbit: Nimoy was the voice of 'Galvatron' in 1986's THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE (which also infamously features the final performance of the great Orson Welles).

Cool news. I hope he gets more than 3 lines, which seems to be the standard amount Bay gives to the transformers. Unless you're Optimus or Megatron. Than you get 5 lines.

I tried to not be excited for this but...

with talent like Nimoy, Alan Tudyk and John Malkovich attached, it's hard not to look forward to it.

See I'm not on the Michael Bay hate-wagon. I enjoyed the first Transformers as well as the Bad Boy films and The Island. I didn't care for Transformers 2 at all but I'm still going to give this one a chance, especially with 3 actors I really like in it.

Cool

I wish they would do two cuts of these movies. Have a PG version and a more adult version with none of the unneccessary stuff added to make these movies funny family movies. Someone more skilled and motivated than me should totally do this.
