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.
Sasuke Uciha (Naruto), Simon (Gurren Lagann) and Ben Tennyson (Ben 10) are a paltry sampling of the numerous popular shows that Yuri has voiced for. We talk about Mad Max Fury Road, martial arts, Ninja Scroll, Dr. Who, charitable causes, steampunk, noir influences and many more topics in this engaging interview.
I always strive to create a fun and engaging interview for my guests. However, when the guest and I click right from the beginning, the real magic begins. Yuri Lowenthal was, by far, one of my favorite interviews of the year (and of all time)!
Voice Actor Steve Blum has been in so many series, games and movies. I wouldn’t even know where to begin by listing them. Ok. Here’s a few since you are pulling my arm. Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, Starscream from Transformers: Prime and Zeb Orrelios from Star Wars Rebels. We talk about Toonami, Cowboy Bebop and music. We also do bad impressions but I won’t spoil the surprise. Watch and find out.
