Michael Bay Responds To Hugo Weaving's TRANSFORMERS Diss

Director Michael Bay addresses Hugo Weaving's disparaging remarks regarding his voiceover work as Megatron in Bay's Tranformers films. Weaving previously stated that it was 'meaningless work.' Read on for Bay's response.



A few days ago Hugo Weaving had to say this about the TF movies he did:

"That’s a weird job for me because it honestly was a two-hour voice job, initially. I was doing a play and I actually didn’t have time, anyway. It was one of the only things I’ve ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn’t care about it, I didn’t think about it. They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret that bit. I don’t regret doing it, but I very rarely do something if it’s meaningless. It was meaningless to me, honestly. I don’t mean that in any nasty way. I did it. It was a two-hour voice job, while I was doing other things."


Today Michael Bay responded. Of course names are not mentioned but you can make the conclusions yourself:

"Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs? With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t “artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? I guess The Hollywood Reporter thinks so.

What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job – let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.

I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate."


This probably means that Megatron won't return for TF4 or at least he won't be voiced by Hugo.
