Life and career
Bloom was born in Merrick, New York, the brother of producer-actor Scott Bloom and musician Mike Bloom. Bloom had an early interest in acting, including appearing in several commercials as a child, but made his big break in the Sergio Leone film Once Upon a Time in America. From there, he was offered the role of Dusty Donovan in the soap opera As the World Turns, which he played for several years. During that run, Bloom became the youngest winner of a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Young Leading Man during the 12th Daytime Emmy Awards show for his performance on the series. Despite his success, he left the series to star in several television movies and myriad guest appearances.
After leaving the soap opera, Bloom starred in several made-for-television films with teen subjects, including Crash Course (1988), Dance 'til Dawn (1988) and Desperate for Love (1989). This opened his appeal to later roles, which would include spots in Melrose Place, 2000 Malibu Road, CSI: Miami, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Drive and HBO's Oz. He played the role of fanatical cult leader Jonas Sparrow in the Joss Whedon show Dollhouse. Bloom also starred in a series of 1994 television movies playing Bandit, a part loosely based on the Burt Reynolds role. Bloom continues his working relationship with Carnahan, playing private mercenary antagonist "Pike" in the 2010 movie The A-Team, which Bloom also co-wrote with Carnahan, who directed the 20th Century Fox feature based on the popular television series.
Brian also attended the Sheriff’s Academy and served as a Reserve Deputy with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department from 2001 – 2011. He is a certified self defense expert and a Sifu of a rarefied street lethal modern Self Defense System called “Bojuka”. He has participated in countless no holds barred combat seminars and taught use of force techniques to law enforcement, military and private security worldwide. Brian works alongside military contractors and new media companies helping coordinate shared technologies and mutually beneficial interests helping both sides integrate their common ground to innovate products and services integral to the growth of both industries.
In 1997, Bloom developed and ran an influential and groundbreaking .com hub known as AnimalWorldNetwork.com. The website was an outpost for pet products, information, video content and celebrity pet lifestyle coverage, selling and shipping fair-trade, organic and holistic pet supplies with both brick and mortar locations and a robust online presence. Bloom sold the domain and business in 2007 for an undisclosed amount.
Known for playing iconic characters with his signature voice, Bloom is an industry leading voice over actor and performance capture artists, contributing to videogames both in front of and behind the camera and microphone consulting on story and narrative on numerous successfully received IP’s and titles. Regarding Bloom's performance as William Joseph "B.J." Blazkowicz (Polish pronunciation: [blasˈkɔvitʂ]), the protagonist of the Wolfenstein series GamesRadar's Ryan Taljonick opined "B.J. [has become] a pretty interesting character, and delivers several internal monologues with just the right amount of drama" while Brian Bloom's "fantastic voicework makes them believable.". Rolling Stone's John Davison wrote: Brian Bloom is responsible for turning in that remarkable and surprisingly sensitive performance as William 'B. J.' Blazkowicz in 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Bloom is well known for his long standing association with the Call of Duty franchise, having performed voice over and motion capture work in a majority of the franchise titles culminating with his current role of Captain Nick Reyes in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. Bloom is both the player character, modeled on his likeness and writer of the game's narrative.
