Netflix’ Cowboy Bebop Finds Its Cast

The oft-criticized Netflix live-action adaptation of the anime classic, Cowboy Bebop, seems to be getting the last laugh this morning with the unveiling of its shockingly diverse cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Cho (Star Trek) has been cast as bounty hunter, Spike Spiegel. He is described as “an impossibly cool ‘cowboy’ (bounty hunter) with a deadly smile, a wry wit, and style to spare.”

Additionally, Mustafa Shakir (Luke Cage) has been cast as Spike’s partner-in-crime, Jet Black. He serves as “one of the few honest cops in the solar system before an ultimate betrayal robbed him of all that he loved, forcing him into a vagabond life of hunting bounties to put food on the table. Jet is an inveterate jazz enthusiast and Captain of the Bebop.”

Next, Danielle Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) has been cast as femme fatale, Faye Valentine, and British actor Alex Hassell has been cast as Spike’s former partner, Vicious. That rounds out a surprisingly diverse, and incredibly strong cast for the upcoming series, which seems to be getting quite the approval from fans and critics alike.

Evangelion Hits Netflix on June 21st

After confirming, to much fan-appreciation, that one of the most influential anime series of all time would be making its way to the streaming service, Netflix has confirmed that Neon Genesis Evangelion will hit on June 21st. It’s been notoriously difficult for quite some time for fans to watch the series without purchasing one of its incredibly expensive box-sets, so this opens a breadth of new fans to the massive series.

On the flip-side, it was also confirmed by the original cast & crew of the iconic original English dub that the series has been re-dubbed for its release on Netflix. Certainly a blow, as the original dub is considered one of the best English translations of all time. Fingers crossed that Netflix has handled it with extreme care.

Starring Gina Rodriguez as the titular thief, we follow Carmen in a new story as she abandons villainous organization V.I.L.E. after realizing the danger they harm to regular people.

Rodriguez will also be playing the classic thief in a live-action film for Netflix, as well, so this should be quite a fun adventure leading up to a big film later this year.
