Steve Blum is a world renown voice actor and all around cool dude. In 2016, I interviewed him and I was hoping for another chance since I was light years better now. At JAFAX, that chance came to fruition. This time, we dive into his new voice acting classes, his collaborations with rapper Logic, the significant meaning of his extensive back tattoo, space, an obscure role that he would like to reprise, his thoughts on the upcoming live action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop, and much more. This interview was a personal favorite of mine for numerous reasons. I’m happy to say that it crushed our old interview. Please enjoy.
Mars. Days before Halloween 2071. Villains blow up a tanker truck on Highway One, releasing a deadly virus that kills hundreds. Fearing a bigger, even more devastating biochemical attack, an astronomical reward is offered for the arrest and capture of the person behind the destruction. On the spaceship “Bebop,” Spike Spiegel and his crew of bounty hunters (Jet Black, Faye Valentine, Ed and Ein) are bored and short of cash. But with the news of the reward everything changes. Based on the wildly popular TV series, Cowboy Bebop, the big-screen smash Cowboy Bebop: The Movie pits Spike and Co. against their deadliest adversary ever.
