There's no doubt that Steven Jay Blum is the American equivalent of Norio Wakamoto.

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. His most notable role is Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, giving the show Superlative Dubbing status (surpassing even the already famous Koichi Yamadera. WOW!) He is the voice of TOM for the character's second, third, fourth and fifth incarnations of Cartoon Network's Toonami programming block, Leeron from Gurren Lagann, as well as the title character of Wolverine and the X-Men. He's worked with Wendee Lee 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, which actually happens in a recent G.I. Joe animated feature.

According to The Other Wiki, Steve Blum 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's shown to be good friends with Vic Mignogna (as their con appearances and Real Fans of Genius Videos can attest to), and regards Wendee Lee as one too.

Has a Twitter account. In April and May of 2012 he used it to lead the charge to charge to bring Toonami back on the air, which was announced as successful on May 16.

Officially holds the Guiness World Record for being the most prolific video game voice actor, having 261 credited appearances as of May 10, 2012.
