“Who is this Julia?” “I don’t know. Got some kind of hold on Spike. That’s all I can tell you.” Faye Valentine & Jet Black, Jupiter Jazz, Pt. 2
Deadline is reporting that Elena Satine has been cast as Julia, “a sultry beauty with a voice to die for, the dream-like object of Spike Spiegel’s (Cho) desire” who struggles to survive in a violent world in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Cowboy Bebop.
Satine currently has a recurring role on CBS All Access’ Strange Angel and was previously on shows like The Gifted and Magic City. Satine rounds out a cast that includes John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda and Alex Hassel, who play Spike, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Vicious, respectively.
With Satine as Julia and Hassel as Vicious, it seems we’re getting closer and closer to confirmation that this show will be a straight adaptation of the anime, but only time will tell if Netflix plans to expand the timeline of the original series, warranting more than the planned 10 episodes.
Daredevil director Alex Garcia Lopez will be helming the first two episodes of the series from scripts penned by writer Christopher Yost, who previously wrote “Thor: The Dark World” and “Thor: Ragnarok.” Shinichiro Watanabe, director of the original anime, will serve as a consultant on the project.
