Ooh, that's a shame. A long time to be shut down. I hope he recovers fully.
Yeah, that sounds crazy long. I wonder if he has some scheduled filming that takes precedent coming up in the first half of next year. That would explain it, though reading the article, they make it sound like it's dependent on his healing, not other filming.
He's the lead actor in an action show and he's suffered a bad knee injury. No mystery there.
Although I gather they've only just begun production, so I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to recast the role. I mean, Cho's a great choice for a lead actor (though about 20 years too old for Spike), but if you ever have to replace a lead actor, early in pilot shooting is a good time to do it. (Like when Star Trek: Voyager dropped Genevieve Bujold as the lead when it became evident after just a couple of days' filming that she wasn't up to the schedule and workload of series television.)
^ The article specifically says that Netflix doesn't want to recast the role.
Yikes, sorry to hear about Cho.
Daniella Pineda, the actress playing Faye, announced that they have finished filming the season. They originally started back in 2019, but had to stop after John Cho got hurt, and then stopped again because of the pandemic.
teaser to showing John Cho as Spike, Daniella Pineda as Faye and Mustafa Shakir as Jet.
Cho looks pretty good, but I'm not really huge on the Faye styling, but it could vary depending on episode/caper... So who knows.
Jet looks the most different since he's kind of a like a Fatherly type figure in a way in the show, but he's def not looking that way here.
Teaser also confirms Yoko Kanno is providing original music for the live action series.
That clip is just to announce Yoko is doing the music. I doubt the actors are in costume.
Except maybe Cho's hair!
Their outfits look more like costumes than casual wear to me.
Looks casual, or at least promo footage "casual" to me.
Maybe I'm just out of touch with fashion (quite likely, actually), but their outfits don't look contemporary in style to me, and they do seem to fit the characters they're playing (given that they presumably wouldn't dress Faye as skimpily as in the anime). But we'll see when we get actual footage, of course.
And what is taking them so long with announcing Edward's casting?
I see people dress like that in these kinds of things all the time.
I unfortunately think they've cut her from the live-action version, which makes zero sense to me and greatly lessens my interest in it.
Wikipedia says she is going to be in it, but when I followed the link to the cited article, there was no mention of her anywhere, so I don't know.
She didn't come into the anime until a few episodes in, so maybe they're going a bit slower with the live action version, and aren't introducing her until next season.
They're going to digitally insert Tig Notaro in as Edward.
Hope so. Spike isn't much of a happy smiley type.
