im sure this will be awesome
http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/b79405_keanu_saddles_up_cowboy_bebop.html

He of the comforting monotone has hitched his wagon to 20th Century Fox's big-screen adaptation of the acclaimed Japanese anime series Cowboy Bebop, which is set in 2071, 50 years after a massive lunar explosion decimated Earth's population and necessitated the colonization of the entire solar system.

Thanks to greater than usual logistical issues, an elite team of Old West-style bounty hunters, or cowboys, is needed to keep the peace.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Reeves is attached to play Spike Siegel, a reformed criminal turned space cowboy and copilot of the Bebop, who, like a character from the actor's past, is well-versed in kung fu and other combat skills but is toting around quite a few personal demons.

No word yet on who's in line to play Spike's copilot, Jet Black, a onetime Inter-Solar System cop with a mechanical arm, but so far we're liking the whole Firefly-Battlestar Galactica-Bill & Ted vibe.

I, too, am a Keanu Reeves fan. He might not be the best actor in the world, but he does play some sweet roles in good movies

I'm still waiting for Constantine 2 to come out

Cowboy Bebop is too awesome and complex for general audiences. The movie-makers will butcher the story, characters, and probably even the music. Reeves will simply contribute to the devastation.

i really hold this series near and dear to my heart - honestly i just don't think it can be done well

i would like to recommend another actor for Spike but I just don't know anyone off the top of my head who could do it

I know Reeves can handle it physically but otherwise . . .

I know...That movie was awesome. I wish they would play it on cable again so I can DVR it.

I think his acting style works very well for the characters he chooses to play.

It's not like Spike was this massively emotional guy. He was either a) stoic or b) mad.

he needs to be able to sound like he has emotion in his voice at least a little (when he gets frustrated or pissed) Keanu will have problems with this.... the rest of the time he will be spot on...

lulz, physically, yeah, mentally definitely no.

^true, but keanu's 'mad' is physical, spike had a voice change and physical action....

ron perlman as jet?

Ron Perlman would make a great Jet.

But it was a laid back kind of stoic. Reeves is either
a)laid back stoner or
b) intense stoner

ok you can rip me apart for this suggestion but maybe the guy who plays Vince on entourage

he is good at being smug and kinda looks like Spike - I'm not saying he's perfect but he would be a better choice to me

somebody mentioned joseph gordon levitt - i haven't seen that guy since 3rd Rock From The Sun but maybe he would be a good choice

it doesn't really matter who they get i can see them trying to cram ballad of fallen angels / jupiter jazz / the real folk blues all into one movie and it sucking



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0S6yPU_BuuU - i love this scene, i would actually like to see it in a real film music and all

Reeves might be able to pull it off, doubtful though. Not only is spike stoic, hes very savy and has a wit to him that I dont see Reeves having. Plus I dont think they could perm keanu's hair to look like spike without me dropping on the floor with laughter.

spike is laid back and , not stiff and unemotional. its not that he has not emotions its the fact he doesnt care. i dont think reeves can make that distinction

A better question might be, who will play Faye? Start brainstorming for women with big breastses, and would look good with dark purple short hair. Kate Beckingsdale maybe?

why you guys getting pissy about this, he's actually cast pretty damn well for this role

get ving rhames or bruce willis to be that dude with the robot arm (god help them if they cast someone like michael chicklis or vin diesel )

if they wanted to go that way the guy who plays Doakes on Dexter would be a good fit if you ask me

but if they went that way they'd probably get Michael Clarke Duncan

How old is dakota fanning? She may be too old to play Ed. I'm just trying to think of someone androgynous enough. Or maybe it should be someone unheard of, so we won't know whether Ed is male of female at first.

...at least it should be fairly easy to cast Ein.

I can't think of anyone that would be good to play any of the characters, except fey maybe. There is nothing wrong with the Anime, it doesn't need to be made into live action.

so, instead of a cool, laid back spike, we will get a wooden, cant-act loser.

^ exactly

I was thinking bruce willis is a good choice for Jet. Has to be someone old who can convey a life filled with weighty experiences.

Actually, that's what all the characters have to convey, even spike. That's why reeves cannot do spike. Wooden != existing in another time and place.

reeves doesn't have the suave wit that spike has. his acting methodology couldn't take it.

the kid from entourage has the looks, but not the physical ability.

i didn't think the cartoon movie was all that great

bruce willis for jet would be a good choice

i wouldn't mind if a black actor played him as long as he got the personality down right

spike is the hardest one to fill - and vicious if he is in the movie which i'm sure he will be

A younger tom cruise could have made a good spike.

Or a younger Christian Bale.

Keanu Reeves doesn't have an eloquent enough voice to pull Spike off.

Reeves is a bad choice. Spike is cool, but not stoic. He's a joker, a clown, charismatic, suave and mercenary.

Reeves can portray clueless, nieve, ham-fisted, monolithic and confused.

You know, Jet's skin was dark...ish? Can we just squint our eyes really tight and have Beau Billingslea do it? Every time I hear his voice, all I can think of is Jet.
I'm officially calling Scarlet Johannsen for Julia. If we're gonna ride this train wreck, let's really get some crappomentum going.

After much research, I've figured out the correct casting:


Jessica Biel - Spike
Megan Fox - Jet
Angelina Jolie - Julia
Scarlett Johansson - Fay
Jessica Alba - Ed
Kate Beckensale - Ein
Vicious - Coked-up Lindsay Lohan
