Earlier this month, John Cho posted a selfie showing his new hairdo for his role as Spike Spiegel in Netflix’s live-action adaptation of “Cowboy Bebop“.
Fans were excited to see Cho embrace Spike’s character, including his hair. The photo shows Cho’s hair grown out and styled in the front, still a bit more kept than the character he is playing, while he stands next to his father on Father’s Day.

After a few months of waiting, it has been confirmed that Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh is finally getting her own standalone “Star Trek” spin-off on CBS All Access.
“Crazy Rich Asians” star Michelle Yeoh is reportedly in talks to reprise her role as Captain Emperor Georgiou in an untitled “Star Trek: Discovery” spin-off that is set to be released in CBS’ All Access streaming platform.
CBS All Access recently announced that “Star Trek: Discovery” has been renewed for a second season to the delight of diehard trekkies everywhere.
“This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the ‘Star Trek’ legacy,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer of CBS Interactive. “We are extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series.”
Gretchen J. Berg, one of the producers of “Star Trek: Discovery,” officially confirmed that Michelle Yeoh — who plays Captain Georgiou — will return in some form sometime in the near future.
While speaking at New York Comic Con (NYCC) on Saturday, Berg teased fans that they haven’t seen the last of Captain Georgiou yet.

Trekkies around the country came together last night to watch the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery with bated breath. The highly anticipated series has generated controversial commentary, with fans either praising or slamming the creators for its diverse cast.
Michelle Yeoh, who is set to star in “Star Trek: Discovery” on September 24, discussed how “very inspirational” her new role is to Asian women, especially young girls.
The 55-year-old Malaysian actress is set to take on the role of captain Philippa Georgiou, the commander of the USS Shenzhou starship in the series’ latest iteration.
George Takei, a.k.a. Captain Hikaru Sulu, is ready to shut down anyone who is less than thrilled about the “Star Trek: Discovery” casting of Michelle Yeoh and Sonequa Martin-Green.
CBS released the trailer earlier in May for its upcoming series, the first in the franchise since “Star Trek: Enterprise” concluded in 2005, according to HuffPost.
“Star Trek: Discovery’s” spectacular new trailer gave fans of the forward-thinking franchise a lot to be excited about: a high production value, an intriguing premise, and a diverse, stellar cast.
Many applauded the show for having strong women of color leads, including Michelle Yeoh as Captain Philippa Georgiou and Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham.
The first trailer for Star Trek Discovery has dropped and it looks epic. Some complained, however, that the usual white male heroes we’ve seen a billion times on tv and the big screen are nowhere to be seen on this one.
What the new show has, in fact, is a solid and diverse cast which includes strong women of color leads.
