Keanu Reeves is now officially confirmed for Cowboy Bepop. What started as an offer had materialized into a full swing pre-production, as Keanu was so keen about the part. He even went out of his way to go to Japan and talk to the show's original producers and creators.
With Keanu to play Spike Spiegel, rumors are going on as to which other actors will get which part. However, many anime fans are not too happy with Keanu Reeves taking the helm, saying that Spike Spiegel is not your ordinary anime character. He's got spunk and substance - something Keanu would have to whip into the role from nothing.
With that said, maybe it's high time that we see serious acting from Keanu? Let's see if he can give justice to the Spike Spiegel role to the delight of true-blue anime fans.
