    That is damn horrible if he were to play spike!! They need someone who can actually act in order to play him!

  • Sandie

    I personally really love Keanu Reeves, so I wouldn’t mind having him in the movie. Although I didn’t see the original, so I can’t say if he would actually fit the character.

  • Simon

    Definetly a “Don’t”

    We’ve seen enough crappy Hollywood versions of great Japanese movies.
    Spike is the coolest guy in the universe while Keanu unfortunately just isn’t.
    I’ll definetly pass this one.

    “They went too far!”

  • helena

    it is a mistake…
    there is no match…

  • Sasha

    NO WAY !!! WE NEED SOMEONE LIKE JOHNNY DEPP !!!
    Keanu can’t act !!!!

  • -_- WHY?! NO!! OMG….out of all the people you could have picked to play spike Keanu IS NOT a great pic, not at all! And I have to say no to johnny Depp too…They need some one like Robert Downy JR.

    Keanu is a horrible choice for Spike… Spike has a very deep past and Keanu only has one emotion… :(- blah!

    Although they could play him as a darker character… an NO I Don’t mean Vicious, but rather a side character…

    I won’t even bitch but just silently sigh and shake my head. My opinion on who should play spike according to diversity, caliber of acting and somewhat looks. I’m fickled on it, but Brad Pitt. I was watching Snatch today and that role was completely reminiscent of Spike. Comical at heart, arrogant, confident, energetic & bouncing around when he fights with a smile on his face cuz he knows he can mess shit up, but dark and disturbed due to his past that foreshadowed where he ended up from start to finish…Kind of like the Spike Spiegel saga. I mean if the part is gonna be pulled off right because the part of Spike is more drama than action. Hands down, any true fan of the Manga and Anime knows this! Then Faye Valentine I was gonna say Angelina Jolie cuz she can do sexy, cunning and could play a trick with a gun, but then i thought Femke Jansen (jean grey from xmen) cuz shes had many parts exactly like the role. For Jet I would say Ron Perlman (hellboy) cuz he can be chummy, a leader figure and has an amazing range of emotion from lively when riled to solemn and easy goin. Vicious I would def. have to say Heath Ledger, but god rest his soul Would have been perfect. Other than that, I would truly say Johnny Depp cuz he could pull it off effortlessly. For ed, the only person that comes to mind would be Alyson Hannigan (Band camp chick from American Pie) because she could play the role well. Lots of energy, red hair to boot, and could pull of a quirky, cute tech nerd blindfolded and make it look good. Ein, well…a charismatic welsh corgi. Julia..hmm thats a mystery.

  • NORMA

    NO please dont do it.NO keanu No i have a huge hunch that the movie is going to be bull shit and i love this anime so god please dont RUIN IT.And dont get cameron diaz as faye that would suck harder.

  • Damian

    At least Keanu looks oriental.

    I mean, look fucking Goku. (NNN)

  • seraph

    i think he would be perfect, think of him with the same attitude as in constantine and make him kick ass like neo. its perfect i think. they should have frasier for jet lol! and angalena jolie for fay…

  • Oochi_oochi_yajyaj

    Hmmmm….Cowboy bebop hell yeah, but keanu is like a surfer dude pick someone else & please don’t destroy the storyline of the movie. Seen worse from Dragon ball & Tekken.:(
