Hollywood Rant: Why Keanu? Why?


... In case you haven't heard, they are making an live-action adaptation of the Japanese Anime Cowboy Bebop. First of all, Cowboy Bebop is one of my favorite animes. It was the first series I watched so I am attached to it. Now, there have been rumors floating around that Keanu Reeves will be playing Spike Spiegel. Well...the rumors are true! And this makes me so mad! BOOERNS! Keanu only has one acting style...think Matrix and Bill & Ted...one word comes to mind "Whoa." UG! It is going to be so lame! Keanu is such a stiff actor, however, I did like those 2 movies, but he just doesn't fit Spikes character. Chalk another one up to Hollywood for making another crappy adaptation.

After getting really upset I decided to kick back and watch one of my favorite TV series, Flight of the Conchords. That show is great! Great actors and funny songs, always entertaining. And then I got to thinking, Bret looks like Spike, he's got the hair. He would just have to beef up a bit, then I could see him playing Spike in the live-action Cowboy Bebop Movie. He would have to talk in an American accent though. Still, I think it would be awesome if Bret McKenzie starred in a big budget movie.

BOO Keanu! Like Whoa! This movie will be awful with me in it. Just check out my crappy hair.


[image]
Give Bret a chance! He's got the hair and he can act. If your movie fails Keanu, Bret and Jemaine will sing a song about your failure.

Bret McKenzie for Spike! ...

i'm so disappointed to hear that the rumors regarding keanu are true... what a fabulous character, and to be wasted on keanu... oh the tragedy.

I've thought this too!!!! :o :o :o Both about Keanu being a GIANT [image] , and Bret looking like Spike!


I think I once posted a picture of Spike in the SB a long time ago saying that he looked like Bret, but I think I just confused whoever I may have been talking with. [image] [image]

ADD: I went to a Real Groovy in NZ and they had a clothes section. There was a collection of vintage American t-shirts and sweatshirts, and they totally reminded me of Bret. [image] [image]

They have a onesie cookie cutter there, so I figured you had seen it! But I suppose it's probably not the only place that sells those. [image]

I especially like the 'stache and the lightning bolt. [image]
