The fight scene in the church was said to be nasty Alex Hassell

It would be a short way to say that Cowboy Bebop, the long-awaited live-action version of the beloved Netflix animated classic, has received mixed reception from critics and fans alike. But while the quality of the project may be in question, the work that goes into it certainly isn’t – according to Alex Hassell, who plays the only named villain Vicious (gee, I wonder what he is like) the amount of time they spent on the show recreating some of the anime’s most iconic scenes was no less exhausting. Talk to Vulture, he describes filming a scene – the climactic duel between Vicious and John Choby Spike – as “extremely annoying”. Sorry!

In his words:

“I’d love to say it’s super fun and awesome, but the truth is, it’s so specific, it’s really extremely uncomfortable. My pants are tight and then your legs start to cramp and you’re like, “Do we get it? Have we understood? “It’s a lot, like, hair just right in front of my eyes. “

It seemed like a lot of work had to go through to perfectly portray that scene. Even if you think the show sucks, Cho and Hassell definitely deserve credit for going above and beyond. True professionals! Hassell, clearly a colorful personality, also has a lot to say about his performance approach to Cowboy Bebopand work to Cho’s own rhythm and sense of humor.

In the show’s season-ending flashback, he said:

“We shot that scene at the end of the season, after I’d spent the whole season… I mean, I’m not like a Method actor, exploring crap about my life, but being very intense: trying to get ashore crashing all the time, trying to put yourself in the void where you think your best friend is dead and you find out your girlfriend made love to him and your dad So, to go back to a time when Vicious was, yes, still very violent and monstrous, but to get the jokes – that’s pretty refreshing. And it’s easy to I did it with John Cho because he was so gentle and witty and dry and curt I said, “What if we do it again? Cowboy Bebop, can I have a little more about this? Which can be really nice.”

That’s the whole f-lotta bomb. “If” is also the special word here: with such a show’s reception, it’s hard to see a second season getting the green light, even if the final episode offers some trailers for what’s to come. may happen next.
