Cowboy Bebop

Let’s do another Dream Cast. If Cowboy Bebop were made into a live-action movie, who would play the main characters? I suggest:

Nick Stahl as the fearless, lanky, pointy-nosed Spike Spigel. Spike isn’t fearless because he thinks he’s indestructable, he’s fearless because he doesn’t seem to care what happens to him. Stahl could both look and act the part, assuming he’s up for the stunts and martial arts.

Ron Glass as the wise, strong, and patient Jet. Jet is tricky because he’s older, yet muscular. Check out some of the scenes from Firefly where Book and Jamie are lifting weights. Ron glass is ripped for a guy his age. He looks and sounds the part. I’d love to see him do it.
AnnaSophia Robb as the clever and curious Radical Edward. (Who is a girl) AnnaSophia starred in Because of Win-Dixie as well as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and she’s brilliant. She’d have to do the part soon, though: she’ll be too old in a couple of years.

Kirsten Dunst as the irresponsible, trashy, gambling-addict Faye. A young Sharon Stone would be even better, but I think Dunst could pull it off without us needing to resort to time-travel or cloning.

Heather points out that Angelina Jolie is a much better choice if you want trashy. She’s too old, but doesn’t look too old. She’s better than Dunst, anyway.

    Sorry to chime in so late, but was reading through the archives and something went ‘ping!’.

    Young gambling addict trashy? Either Natalie Portman (remember The Professional, anyone?) or Jordana Brewster. Both good actresses, both can do ‘not quite in control of herself’ bad girls.

    My brother and I and our spouses play this game a LOT, but we usually do novels (or better yet novel series – more characters).

    Clandy Brown for Jet. C’mon, they look exactly alike, if you ask me.

    Oh, come on.. Natalie Portman and Kristen Dunst? Faye is all about the boobs. If you take the booobs, what do you have left? An anorexic hooker with a bad mouth. I, personally, don’t find that attractive, or even slightly sexy.
    It’s my first comment, so don’t be beyond mean.
