If you’ve been looking forward to the live-action adaptation of the iconic Japanese animated series Cowboy Bebop on Netflix, prepare for an even lengthier wait.
While it is not clear as to the exact cause of Cho’s injury, it is believed that it was a major blunder during a scene that was actually rehearsed multiple times. Cho was then flown back to Los Angeles to undergo surgery, and then a prolonged recovery.
The 47-year-old went on social media to express his heartfelt thanks to fans who wished him well, quoting Bruce Lee’s iconic “Water can flow or it can crash” line from Longstreet.
The Star Trek and Searching star is still set to play as Spike Speigel in Cowboy Bebop, with Netflix still in full support of Cho’s involvement in the 10-episode limited series.
Starring alongside Cho will be Alex Hassle (The Boys) as Vicious, Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Faye Valentine, Elena Satine (Twin Peaks) as Julia, and Mustafa Shakir (Luke Cage) as Jet Black.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
