The western series based on the 1990s Japanese anime phenomenon has cast Cho as "impossibly cool 'cowboy'" (bounty hunter) Spike Spiegel. Luke Cage alum Mustafa Shakir will play his partner Jet Black. Cowboy Bebop has also cast The Detour's Daniella Pineda as bold bounty hunter Faye Valentine and British actor Alex Hassell as Spike's nemesis, Vicious. Cho' Spike Spiegel is described as a leader with a "deadly smile, wry wit and style to spare. He travels the solar system with his ex-cop partner, Jet Black, pursuing the future’s most dangerous bounties with a combination of charm, charisma — and deadly Jeet Kune Do."
