*SNIKT!!!*Simply put, the American equivalent of Norio Wakamoto.Steven Jay Blum is notable for his incredibly versatile range, though his most well-known is his Guttural Growler voice. He can play just about any role from heroes, to villains, even to the just plain weird. One of his most notable roles is Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop. He's worked withWendee Lee and Nolan North a few times as well. He's equally known for having a ludicrous number of roles in the same work at times, with some videogames having him voice so many extras that it seems as if you've stepped into some bizarre world of Steve Blums.According to The Other Wiki, Steve has also worked under a handful of known aliases, and the page contains many more examples of his work. Or you can go straight for the four hundred and fifty-one roles listed on his IMDB page.He has a Twitteraccount. In April and May of 2012, he used it to lead the charge to bring Toonami back on the air, which was announced as successful on May 16, 2012.Officially holds the Guiness World Record for being the most prolific video game voice actor, having 261 credited appearances as of May 10, 2012.It should be noted that he is an SAG member and is confirmed that he does not have Financial core status, though did previously used to voice under aliases such as David Lucas and Andrew Watton for non-union productions, though it's unknown if he still does today. It is confirmed however, that Steve can not work with Funimation and Sentai Filmworks productions for traveling reasons among other things.A few of the characters he has voiced are found here.
According to him in an interview, should all the characters he voiced ever engage in a free-for-all, the winner would be Leeron since he'd creep everyone else out.
Doing It for the Art: The reason he still does anime dubbing, even though it pays nothing compared to doing video games and western animation.
It's worth noting that despite being a union-only member, anime is how Steve Blum entered the voice acting business (as opposed to his other fellow union-only voice actors like James Arnold Taylor and Nolan North who entered the voice acting businesses other than anime).
