Whoa.

13950spike08mdKeanu Reeves as Spike Spiegel? From Cowboy Bebop? My favorite television show (and it’s a movie too)?

Yeah. I say yeah. I like Keanu. I think it was a mistake to put him into romantic comedies, but for a laconic action hero, he’s got the chops. So now the question becomes: Who are cast as the other three?

Jet: Sam Jackson comes to mind for me. Can’t think of anyone better.

Faye: Charlize Theron. However, I admit that any kind of casting exercise like this will probably result in me suggesting her for something. She should be in every movie.

Edward: Wow, I dunno about this one. Probably an unknown 15-year-old girl that has some of the qualities of Nat in The Professional.

    I asked LWC and she said Uma Thurman for Faye and Michael Chiklis for Jet. Pretty good stuff there.

    The thing about Faye is that she’s got that kind of clumsy dorkishness about her that I don’t know that casting a “femme fatale”-type actress is necessarily the best idea. More Cameron Diaz than Uma Thurman, probably.

    And Michael Clarke Duncan for Jet?
