Gonna say it and I know it's an unpopular opinion but he still is, and looks to old for Spike.

No, you’re right on the nose.

Spike is 27. Cho is pushing 50. Too old.

Should've went with my dream suggestion of Hugh Jackman. Anyway, I think they're confusing Bebop w/ Space Dandy. Rolling Eyes

In what world is that "Spike's Hair" ?

Like what fanart are they using as a reference material.

Not really an unpopular opinion.

Character is 27, looks like he's in his mid 30's, and being played by a guy in his late 40's.....seems legit.

Let it be known that Spike is a wearied & damaged man so stress making him look older than his actual age is not a ridiculous idea.

Plus this picture is a selfie taken before the actual filming stuff like make-up & right lighting so he’ll most likely look better in the final production.

I dunno. I've seen a lot of people singing praises to John Cho being cast as Spike. I just started to assume majority liked it.

They really couldn't have found a 27 year old up and coming actor for the role?

Hollywood makeup artists can make anyone look any age.

She's just in the news lately, but for godsakes Olivia Newton-John played an iconic high school girl when she was around 30! Laughing

You know Spike is a smoker in his late 20s, right? Two things that can age you prematurely: Smoking and being POTUS.
