A few weeks ago, we interviewed one of the godfathers of video game and anime voice over work, Steve Blum, for Front Towards Gamer Radio. He was excited when he heard about the opportunity to help out the troops this holiday season with our charity wing, Operation Supply Drop, which raises money to build video game stuffed care packages for troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Well, I found a package on my doorstep yesterday with a copy of the Cowboy Bebop movie script, signed by the entire principle cast. Steve said that he’s remained friends with the cast over the years and actually drove to all their houses in Los Angeles to have them sign the script! Pretty crazy to think about that image: Steve Blum (Spike Spiegel) just driving over to Beau Billingslea’s (Jet) and Wendee Lee’s (Faye Valentine) house and just hanging out? Ultimate anime fan’s dream.
RE: Pile o’ stuff
So here it is…I put together the Bebop movie script for you. In case you can’t read the sigs- it’s (clockwise from top left)…
Beau Billingsley – Jet
Mary Elizabeth McGlynn – Director and Julia in series
Wendee Lee – Faye
Melissa Fahn – Ed
Jennifer Hale – Electra
and Daran Norris – Vincent
Most auctions have been bringing in around $500 for one of these, so hopefully it’ll help OSD for future drops! Hope this helps! Keep up the good work, sir!
Best regards, Steve
