Netflix has revealed the cast for the upcoming Cowboy Bebop live-action. They also shared these descriptions for the 4 main characters:
JOHN CHO (Star Trek, Searching) as Spike Spiegel Spike Spiegel is an impossibly cool “cowboy” (bounty hunter) with a deadly smile, a wry wit, and style to spare. He travels the solar system with his ex-cop partner, Jet, pursuing the future’s most dangerous bounties with a combination of charm, charisma -- and deadly Jeet Kune Do.
MUSTAFA SHAKIR (Marvel’s Luke Cage) as Jet Black Jet Black was 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.
DANIELLA PINEDA (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom; What/If) as Faye Valentine Faye Valentine is a bold, brash and unpredictable bounty hunter. Suffering from amnesia after years of being cryogenically frozen, Faye does whatever it takes to survive. Whether she’s lying, stealing, or just being a thorn in Spike and Jet’s side.
ALEX HASSELL (The Red Sea Diving Resort; Suburbicon) as Vicious A man who thoroughly enjoys a good kill, Vicious is the Syndicate’s most notorious hitman. He’s also Spike Spiegel’s ex-partner and arch-enemy.
