KEANU REEVES (John Constantine) is one of Hollywood's most sought after and successful actors. His dedication to his craft is well known among his peers and is admirably reflected in his choice of roles as well as in his performances. In Fall 2005, he will be seen in the live action, highly stylized, animated adaptation of A Scanner Darkly, directed by Richard Linklater, starring opposite Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson and Winona Ryder. Also on his upcoming release slate is the independent feature Thumbsucker. Directed by newcomer Mike Mills, Thumbsucker boasts an eclectic cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vince Vaughn and Benjamin Bratt.
In 2003, Reeves dominated the screen in the highly anticipated The Matrix Revolutions, the final chapter in The Matrix trilogy and the follow-up to The Matrix Reloaded. He also received critical acclaim for his supporting role in the romantic comedy Something's Gotta Give, starring with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton.
Reeves achieved worldwide acclaim with his performance in Jan de Bont's action tour de force Speed, and his long list of credits include Hardball, The Gift, Sweet November, The Replacements, A Walk in the Clouds, the thriller The Devil's Advocate, opposite Al Pacino and Charlize Theron, Bernardo Bertolucci's Little Buddha, and Much Ado About Nothing. He was also seen in Bram Stoker's Dracula, My Own Private Idaho and Point Break.
