John Torturro Voicing Jetfire

Via a translated REVENGE OF THE FALLEN article in the French magazine "Première Ciné Live," Michael Bay's forums Shoot For The Edit had some info posted about co-star John Turtoro, our favorite Agent Simmons, voicing the Decepticon turned Autobot Jetfire – well I assume it's Jetfire.
The article reads (this is translated remember, the grammar isn't perfect) – Set: Egypt, in front of kheops pyramid, stands an ancient 30’s palace built for King Faruk’s guests.

At “Action”, Shia runs through the yard, stops at the doorstep and hits the door with his shoulder. Megan Fox, John Turturo and Ramon Rodriguez come next and hurry inside the building.

Shia heads up, shout a few words at an imaginary Bumblebee, and gets in.


Three cars, the Camaro, the red TRAX and the green BEAT, start quickly and stop a bit further away to look out. The three vehicules are driven by black-suited (and thereby “invisible”) stuntmen behind the smoked glass.

At the end of the day, the crew moves to the third and smallest pyramid, Mykerinos.

John Turturo, back as always angry agent Simmons, has to climb up a few stones. This hasn’t been done for 30 years: Too many accident occurred and egyptians had forbidded it.

Turturo will try to run from an imaginary Decepticon.

Michael Bay says: “I had the idea of these two stupid Transformers, Skids ans Mudflap. They’re twins who can’t stop bickering, but they do heroic things at the beginning of the movie.

Bumblebee, on his side, has become more serious. He doesn’t want to leave Sam’s parents’ garage. There is also an old Transformer, who loses screws and bolts at every move. And it’s John Turturo voicing him.”

The description we have of Jetfire for the sequel is as follows – It has been confirmed that Jetfire will be appearing in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as an Autobot. He will continue to be an SR-71 Blackbird and will be able to combine with Optimus Prime. Jetfire is portrayed as an aged Decepticon who becomes an Autobot due to his wounds and old age. He is seen with a cane of sorts (which is formed by his vehicle mode's landing gear) in the film's teaser trailer, whilst being attacked by Scorponok.

So John Turturo is voicing Jetfire I would have to assume right? Awesome.
