When the official cast has been announced for Netflix’s take on Cowboy Bebop, everyone wondered where was the popular character of Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivurski IV or better known as Radical Ed. Well, it turns out they were purposely keeping it a secret to unveil it after people may have binged the full season. Now, they took to Twitter to announce that newcomer Eden Perkins has been cast as Radical Ed in the series with a brief teaser below.
They’ll join the new Cowboy Bebop: Unlocked after-show heading to YouTube on November 20th as a follow-up, where they’ll discuss the creation of the show. It’s still a bit of a strange timing to not even give the show a day or two, but Netflix seems to share these kinds of reveals quite early due to the expectation of people binging the show after its initial release. Still, it’s great to get the official confirmation on who is tackling this iconic role in the live-action take on the popular anime series.
