Keanu Reeves has signed on to play the lead in Fox’s live-action adaptation of Cowboy BeBop, a decision I would probably have lots to say about if I knew anything about anime.

Reeves will take on the role of Spike Spiegel, an adventurous bounty hunter traveling through space in 2071. Story follows the adventures of a group of bounty hunters traveling on their spaceship, the Bebop. [Variety]

I’m not sure what the hell that has to do with cowboys, but then, I don’t feel like reading all 8,000 words of the Wikipedia entry either.  All I know is that with Keanu playing the lead I’m not sure it’s fair to call it “live-action”.  But then, it certainly couldn’t be “animated” either.  Get it?  Because Keanu Reeves is a bad actor, you see.  If you liked either of these jokes, check out my Stock Keanu Reeves Jokes catalogue, now just $18.95 plus shipping and handling.
