Netflix's Cowboy Bebop Live-Action Series Casts Important Character

Ein is the best boy and is being portrayed by a real corgi, who is also the best boy.


After shuffling through some hands before landing in the palms of Netflix, the live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop is finally in production. Though we have already seen some of the cast, Netflix has given us the most important casting announcement: Ein the Corgi will be portrayed by a very real and very good Corgi.

Dubbed "Corgi-vision," the new behind the scenes trailer, below, shows the dog's perspective as it struts through the series' set. Following the ascension of some stars and the rounding of some corners, the dog arrives at the reading room where the rest of the main cast sits.

Alongside Ein the Very Good Corgi, Cowboy Bebop will feature Alex Hassell as Vicious, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, John Cho as Spike Spiegel, and Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black. Casting announcements for characters like Ed and others have yet to be made.

The live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop will have Alex Garcia Lopez (who has also worked on Netflix shows like The Witcher) direct the first two episodes. Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) will write the first episode. The show will feature a total of 10 episodes.
