Voice actor Steven Blum recently sat down with Skewed 'n Reviewed to discuss some of his current and upcoming projects including his role as Starscream on Transformers Prime. Here's a few excerpts:

How did you become involved with the new Transformers project and your character?

I prayed a lot, bribed a little, cried some. [Laughs] Actually, I just auditioned for it like anything else – and got really, really lucky!


Are you a fan of horror and science fiction? If so, what are some of your favorites?

Not as much horror as sci-fi, but I’ve seen quite a bit of both. One of my favorite horror bloodfests happens to be Re-Animator. I worked as a driver, shlepper, mailboy, slave for the production company that made it – Empire Pictures, when it was shot in 1985. The weird thing about that film is that the star, Jeff Combs, is now playing Ratchet in Transformers: Prime!


What sort of research did you do for the parts and what challenges did it present compared with other work?

I read a lot of stuff on the internet and watched an episode or two from each of the older series. I was already in my 20’s when G1 came out, but I was certainly aware that Transformers was something new and different and I have to admit that I did play with my kid’s action figures. I still do. Except I have my own action figures now. That counts as research, right?

Steve Blum owns some transformers? ^.^ I knew he was awesome. Also, I really do like his Starscream. It's very different, but in a good way :D

Huh? He never played Breakdown. Wonder how he got that one mixed up.

I really like his take on Starscream; it's a little darker than usual, so it's nice.
