When John Cho was initially forged as Spike Spiegel for Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop adaptation in 2019, the response was fairly optimistic. In spite of everything, folks love themselves some John Cho and contemplate him a reliably participating actor. Come six months later, Cho had an on-set damage that noticed manufacturing being halted whereas he took the time to heal.
Now that Bebop is out within the wind and folk have put their eyeballs on it, Cho just lately received the chance to talk extra candidly about what occurred. The actor appeared on James Corden’s Late Late Present and revealed he tore his ACL whereas filming a nighttime scene. While he nonetheless isn’t certain what brought on it, discussions have been had throughout his restoration time concerning the not unusual technique of working round his damage. One such suggestion was CG his face onto one other actor, a la The Irishman. Or to place it in a funnier manner: sure, they considered taking his face…off. (Presumably, this might not be the sequel we’re presupposed to be getting.)
In fact, that didn’t occur, as a result of that will’ve been some huge cash to take action. Equally, a significantly cheaper choice of simply utilizing a stool and taking pictures from the waste up was off the desk, since in keeping with Cho, “they thought, ‘that is harmful.’” So with a 12 months off to get well, Cho discovered himself simply eager about his smoking, noodle loving goofball cowboy.
“I don’t assume I’ve ever considered a single position extra,” Cho stated, speaking about how he considered Spike and the present “day-after-day” whereas doing his yearlong bodily remedy. The primary season was completed along with his model new knee, and he’s completely happy that issues are going effectively. “To date, so good,” he joked whereas knocking on wooden. “I’m presupposed to be at 100%, however don’t take a look at me.”
Amongst different issues, Cho’s nonetheless recognized for taking part in Sulu within the Star Trek reboots, and between that and Bebop, it seems he can’t steer clear of sci-fi. When requested by Reggie Watts if he’d ever contemplate filming a film in house, like what Tom Cruise is planning to ultimately do, Cho responded “sure” with the seriousness of a kid who was simply requested in the event that they wished a brand new toy. “Should you can be taught the piano,” he stated to Corden, “I can truly go into house.” Possibly that may be the plan for if Bebop will get a second season.
