Netflix’s ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Live-Action Anime Series Added Non-Binary Cast

Netflix‘s Cowboy Bebop is also an upcoming live-action anime series that added a non-binary cast member. Mason Alexander Park will play Gren character in this remake series.

We know Mason Alexander Park, who toured all over the USA with the Broadway version of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” musical drama. Now, Park will play the character, Gren in the live-action remake. And Gren is the right hand to Ana (Tamara Tunie), owner of the hottest underground jazz club on Mars.

Mason Alexander Park also identify with they/them pronouns. Gren’s fluid sexual orientation ascended the character to a rare LGBTQ inclusion in anime.

When is the Cowboy Bebop Release Date on Netflix?

According to our early news from July 2020, There’s no official release date confirmation. But we guess Cowboy Bebop Live-Action will release in the Summer or Fall of 2021.

Netflix also tweets about this announcement and says, “Revolutionary as the original anime was, the vocabulary we have today for LGBTQ+ people didn’t quite exist when it aired. For the upcoming live-action adaptation, the character is being reimagined as non-binary with a non-binary actor.”

In this announcement video Park also added:

“I will be playing my favorite role from the anime, Gren, who is a sexy nonbinary icon. Being a nonbinary actor who is given the opportunity to breathe new life into an existing nonbinary character has been the thrill of a lifetime. It’s remarkably meaningful to me. Because I didn’t grow up with a lot of gender-variant representation in the media.”

Last week Geoff Stults, Tamara Tunie, Rachel House, Ann Truong, and Hoa Xuande added to the remake. Also, the main cast members include John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, Alex Hassell as Vicious, and Elena Satine as Julia.

And, the production resume on September 30 in New Zealand. Watch the opening theme below!
