'Cowboy Bebop' Live-Action Series Reportedly Starts Production this Summer
I'm very uneasy about this.
You and me both TheVileOne. I love the anime and the last thing I want is for this to end up being another Death Note type disaster.
Also agree with you guys.
awesome cast god damn John Cho to Star in Netflix's 'Cowboy Bebop' Live-Action Series
Curious that there's no Ed casting as of yet, but she shows up later on in the series compared to the others, so I guess we'll get that at a later date. But yeah, solid casting. John Cho's gonna need to grow out that hair to give us Spike-quality hair.
EDIT: Okay, briefly thinking about it, two names came to mind for Ed: Clare Foley (young Ivy on Gotham), or Sadie Sink (Max on Stranger Things).
That's a solid line-up, I gotta say.
I like it.
John Cho is an interesting choice.
My man John.
Good for him
So grizzled vet Jet is younger than Spike?
I really like the cast! The only actor I'm not familiar with is Alex Hassell.
John Cho is a really interesting choice indeed, and after his stellar performance in Searching I'm not going to bet against him. I wasn't expecting them to go this old for Spike, but man now I'm even more curious about this and hopefully it turns out to be great.
That's the only thing that doesn't make sense to me but other than that, the cast is awesome.
I always thought of Spike as someone with more sex appeal. John Cho just doesn't give me that Spike vibe, but he's a talented actor.
That's a legit cast right there. Cho as Spike is a W.
Cho as Spike is a tragedy. The rest seem OK.
Honestly, I think the whole show itself is a tragedy. That being said, Spike in the original was 27 years old. John Cho is 46.
Also, he's no longer Spike Spiegel.
That being said, Asians and Asian Americans have been marginalized so much in Hollywood films and TV shows, I guess we can hardly complain when it goes the other way for once.
I'm just not understanding why they went Latin for Faye Valentine, when it's made pretty clear in the show that she's Singaporean. Meaning you would've wanted an Asian or Asian American as Faye...
Bigger tragedy - showrunners. I'm not seeing anything on Cho not being Spike. Everyone is reporting he was cast in the role.
I'm either way about FV. Asian or not, as long as she's pretty and has similar looks.
Love John Cho but not sure how good this will be. Anime adaptations still suck but maybe Netflix can finally make a decent one.
They haven't made a decent one yet.
I'm a huge fan of Chris Yost, but I'm still uneasy about this.
I love John Cho. He is not Spike imo.
