‘Cowboy Bebop': Netflix Casts John Cho, Mustafa Shakir and 2 Others for Live-Action Series

  • The Wrap
Netflix has begun casting for its live-action adaptation of “Cowboy Bebop,” adding John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda and Alex Hassell.

Cho will star as Spike Spiegel, an impossibly cool 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.

Shakir, who recently played Bushmaster on Netflix’s “Luke Cage,” will play Jet Black, Spiegel’s partner. 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.
