Tuesday Morning Man: Keanu Reeves!
Why Keanu Reeves you wonder?
Because I read a snarky comment about him last night on Twitter and decided to show my appreciation for the star of The Matrix trilogy as well as such memorable films as My Private Idaho, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Point Break, The Devil’s Advocate, A Walk in the Clouds, Speed, Something’s Gotta Give, The Gift, Constantine and many other films over the past 20-plus years.
Keanu, now 45, has been around long enough as a leading man that he certainly deserves some respect. I never found him more appealing than opposite Diane Keaton in Something’s Gotta Give but also liked him in the less successful The Replacements and Sweet November.
I’ve never done a sit down interview with Keanu but I have had a couple of red carpet encounters with him, including at the Oscars 3-4 years back. I found him to have a good energy and very professional – a movie star who is very good at his job.
I think that’s why he’s lasted so long.
