I've seen no article that states anything remotely close to this, other than the latter part of what you just said. The only reason this is even brought up is because of unsubstantiated rumors that Bay and Speilberg were going to get George Clooney or Tom Hanks to play Prime. Actually, as far as I know, the only one who ever read for Prime was Cullen. All the quotes are simply this person or that person thanking the "fans" (that vague, undefined concept). As I said Don Murphy wanted to bring him back in 2004, so it's doubtful internet message boards or some fan movement really scored him an audition.
