Steven Jay Blum is well known for his ''incredibly'' versatile range. He can play just about any role from heroes, to villains, even to the just plain weird. One of his most famous roles is Spike Spiegel from ''Anime/CowboyBebop''. He is also known for [[RelationshipVoiceActor working with]] Creator/WendeeLee and Creator/NolanNorth. He is equally known for having a ludicrous number of roles in the ''same'' work at times, with some video games having him voice so many extras that it seems as if you have stepped into some bizarre world populated almost entirely with Steve Blums. He officially holds the Literature/{{Guinness World Record|s}} for being the [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=62393280&l=a550f11c0f&id=152361198170316 most prolific video game voice actor]], having 261 credited appearances as of May 10, 2012. A few of the characters he has voiced are found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhI4Ho9qEnw&feature=related&fmt=18 here]].

He has a Website/{{Twitter}} [[https://twitter.com/blumspew account]]. In April and May of 2012, he used it to lead the charge to bring Creator/{{Toonami}} back on the air, which was announced as successful on May 16, 2012. He stopped doing non-union voice work in 2005, but still continues to do union voice work in anime occasionally.

Hello I want to create a Trivia section for Steve Blum but I notice that it's not allowing me to create it which is Ironic since some of the other pages relating to the anime actors like Stephanie Sheh have it as well?

Hello I want to create a Trivia section for Steve Blum but I notice that it's not allowing me to create it which is Ironic since some of the other pages relating to the anime actors like Stephanie Sheh have it as well?

Example: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Trivia/StephanieSheh

Trivia for Steve Blum:
* DoingItForTheArt: The reason he still does anime dubbing, even though it pays nothing compared to doing video games and western animation. Despite being a union-only member, anime is how he entered the voice acting business (as opposed to his other fellow union-only voice actors like Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor and Creator/NolanNorth who entered the voice acting businesses ''other'' than anime).



* OlderThanTheyLook: Turned 55 this year, even though he doesn't appear to be any older than his early to mid-forties.

to:

* OldShame: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j73B-iDaNog&t=0m37s He is rather uncomfortable]] with working on anything hentai, as he came across a scene that was so offensive that [[NoJustNoReaction he left the studio immediately]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Turned 55 this year, even though he doesn't appear to be any older than his early to mid-forties. mid-forties.
* OneOfUs: On top of being a comic book fan, he also led the charge to get Creator/{{Toonami}} back on the air, being as passionate about it as his many fans.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType:
** Leeron and Guilmon would be the best examples; a flaming gay engineer and a tiny cute creature are as far away from growing villains as you can get.
** Also, he's nearly unrecognizable as [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Grunt and the Shadow Broker]] due to his voice being modulated, though if you listen closely enough to the former, you can tell it's him.
** [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Orochimaru]], [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan Green Goblin]] and [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Starscream]] require use of his higher register, higher than most of his roles.
** Played with in the ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' episode "Freaky". For a large portion of the episode, he's voicing Spider-Man trapped in Wolverine's body.
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' has him, in addition to returning as Vilgax, playing Hobble, a weak, cowardly, ButtMonkey Plumber who's the antithesis of [[EvilOverlord Vilgax]].
* PromotedFanboy: He often talks about hanging out at his uncle's comic book shop and reading the comics. He's voiced numerous comic book characters, such as ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Steve's known for his growly and deep voice which mostly fits with villains, but in real life, he's a really sweet and down-to-earth guy who promotes charity.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: He's often worked together with Creator/WendeeLee, Creator/CrispinFreeman, Creator/NolanNorth, Creator/KariWahlgren, Creator/FredTatasciore, Creator/BeauBillingslea, Creator/JoshKeaton, Creator/DaranNorris, Creator/YuriLowenthal and Creator/DeeBradleyBaker.
* StarMakingRole: [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel]].
