Jordan Blum Reveals His MARVEL’S M.O.D.O.K. Roles
In a Tweet sent on Thursday, June 3rd, 2021, Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. showrunner Jordan Blum revealed the roles that he voiced in the Hulu series: the Ciegrimites, Fin Fang Foom, and one third of the most insidious super villain of them all, Hexus the Living Corporation!
One of the benefits of being a showrunner is you can cast yourself in the dumbest fucking roles that no one else wants to play. In #modok I got to be all the Ciegrimites, Fin Fang Foom and 1/3 of the Hexus board (EPs Brett Cawley and Robert Maitia played the others). pic.twitter.com/LxrhUGjRXR

According to the Tweet, Executive Producers Brett Cawley and Robert Maitia played the other two executives on the Hexus board, since each of the Living Corporation’s three tendrils has a distinct personality (no matter how much all three of them would like to eat Austin’s beloved pet doodle Sherlock served Baja-style).
Lots of Voices
While Blum lent his voices to several characters over the course of the ten episodes that make up the first season of the adult animated series Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., which is currently available for streaming on Hulu, he isn’t the only showrunner to voice a character on the show!
Blum’s fellow showrunner on Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., Patton Oswalt, has lent his distinctive vocal performance to the eponymous super villain, M.O.D.O.K., the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing!
But that’s not the only character that Oswalt voiced, he also lent his acting talents to a distinct, and much eviler, younger version of his character, B.R.O.D.O.K. (that’s what I’m calling the college-aged M.O.D.O.K., thanks West Coast Avengers).
Plus, according to an Internet Attention-grabbing conversation this reporter had with Blum on Twitter about a month ago, the other voice actors had quite an effect on the show as well, with Melissa M.O.D.O.K.’s voice actor Melissa Fumero being key in developing the unique characteristics of the character she played.
Give Us A Second Season!
With Hexus the Living Corporation still at large at the world of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., it seems like there’s a possibility we could hear more of Blum’s voice acting in a second season… so what are you waiting for, Hulu? Let’s renew it already!
