Steven Blum is the voice for iconic roles in anime & American cartoons, ranging from Cowboy Bebop, Digimon, Samurai Champloo, Wolverine and the X-Men, Great Teacher Onizuka, Naruto, Transformers: Prime, Star Wars Rebels, Big-O, and Tom from Toonami on Cartoon Network. In this panel from BoroughCon 2017, Steven discusses the Toonami comeback, working with hip-hop artist Logic, voice acting tips, and the many roles he has had and the stories behind them.
If you don’t feel like watching the full panel, check out these highlights from it and the other panels where Steve popped up:
Ever wondered how Steven Blum became the voice of Tom from Toonami, and how the show managed to make a successful return to Cartoon Network? Find out how in this video.
In this clip, Steve talks about how he worked with Logic on “The Incredible True Story”.
During the “Everything Voice Acting” panel, a fan asked prolific voice actor Steven Blum about the differences between voicing Spike Speigel from “Cowboy Bebop” and Mugen from “Samurai Champloo”, which gave us some interesting info behind the shows. Then things got weird with Dante Basco and Steven’s girlfriend and fellow voice actor, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. Real weird.
Lastly, when a fan asked Steven Blum about an inspiring line to use in moments of need, he gave them his famous empowering monologue from a Toonami bumper, “Fall seven times, get up eight”.
A new bar has been put out there for skaters, as Canada’s Kevin Reynolds just competed in the 2016 Canadian National Figure Skating Championships to the theme from “Cowboy Bebop”, all while dressed as Spike Spiegel.
While the 25-year-old did not win first place, he still managed to get a hold of third place at the end of the night.
This is not the first time that this skater has used something nerdy as part of his program, having used music from The Legend of Zelda and Chrono Trigger a few years earlier.
Reynolds is the 2013 Four Continents champion, 2010 Four Continents bronze medalist, and a four-time Canadian national medalist (2012–14 silver, 2010 bronze). He is also the first skater to have landed two quadruple jumps in a short program, as well as the first to have landed five quadruple jumps in one competition. At the Olympics, he helped Team Canada win the silver medal and finished 15th in the men’s singles event.
