THE WATCHER

KEANU REEVES (David Allen Griffin) has become one of Hollywood's box office superstars. He recently received an MTV Movie Award and a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for his role in the mega-hit The Matrix, which broke the US box-office record for the Easter holiday weekend at $37.2 and went on to be a huge hit internationally. He can currently be seen opposite Gene Hackman in The Replacements. He will follow that with another Warner Bros. Pictures film, Sweet November, also starring Charlize Theron and directed by Pat O'Connor, which is currently in production.

Reeves began his work in the theater with the Shakespeare & Company production of The Tempest in Lenox, Massachusetts. He is best known for his starring role in the box office hit Speed. He was also seen as Prince Siddhartha in Miramax's Little Buddha, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, and in Gus Van Sant's Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Reeves co-starred with Denzel Washington, Emma Thompson, Michael Keaton and Kenneth Branagh in his the Shakespearean endeavor Much Ado About Nothing.

Previously, he was seen in Bram Stoker's Dracula, directed by Francis Ford Coppola; My Own Private Idaho, directed by Gus Van Sant; Kathryn Bigelow's action-adventure film Point Break; and the very popular Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and its sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

Raised in Toronto, Reeves performed in various local theatre productions and on television before relocating to Los Angeles. His first widely-acclaimed role was in Tim Hunt's River's Edge. He then starred in Marisa Silver's Permanent Record, and with Amy Madigan and Fred Ward in The Prince of Pennsylvania. Yet another turn came when the actor was cast as the innocent Danceny in Stephen Frears' highly-praised Dangerous Liaisons, alongside Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer. He joined other outstanding casts that year in Ron Howard's comedy Parenthood, and Lawrence Kasdan's I Love You To Death. Audiences saw Reeves for the first time as the romantic lead opposite Barbara Hershey in Jon Amiel's Tune in Tomorrow.

His additional credits include the sci-fi thriller Johnny Mnemonic; Alfonso Arau's period drama A Walk in the Clouds; Andrew Davis' action film Chain Reaction; the dark comedy Feeling Minnesota; and starring opposite Al Pacino in the hit thriller The Devil's Advocate for Warner Bros. Pictures.
