Busy day for Cowboy Bebop's Spike Spiegel-- first Keanu Reeves wants to play him (*shudder*), and now L.A. Weekly has ranked him the #2 awesomest space cowboy ever.


Although the order might not be intended to matter, since the #1 is Mal from Joss Whedon's Firefly. Nothing against the guy, it just feels like he hasn't been around long enough to top relative old-timers to the space western genre like Spike and Han Solo (#3). It's also worth noting that Vash the Stampede, of Trigun fame, took #4. (#5 is Marshall William T. O'Neill from Outland.)

Weird list? Yeah...but with Vash and Spike ranking up with Han “Shot First” solo, how can I complain?

Cool, Spike is the greatest.

I like how they're using AMVs to show off the anime characters.

Hah! Good spotting, Niko!

Screw classics, Mal deserves that #1. u_uV

Mal wouldn't even exist without Gene Starwind.  Where's he?

Spike is such a bad a**
