As everyone knows, Keanu Reeves – aka “the internet’s boyfriend” – has been making a huge splash lately.
Now, filming has begun for the long-awaited threequel in the Bill and Ted franchise and we couldn’t be more excited.
Reeves will be reprising his role as Theodore Logan, and joining his buddy Bill S. Preston, played by Alex Winter. Of course, in the new film, the two slackers are now grownups.
These days, just about everyone is talking about the 54-year-old actor and what he’s been up to. (Dare we even mention he’s also single?) Sure, he just had a major box office success with John Wick 3, but there’s much more to Keanu.
His philanthropic ways and down-to-earth attitude have also touched the hearts of millions.
Not only has the actor taken pay cuts to help others, he has also secretly donated millions to countless causes. A truly admirable soul, Reeves also runs a private cancer research foundation that benefits several children’s hospitals.
Arriving on set to begin filming for Bill and Ted Face the Music, Reeves was seen with changed look. Instead of the rugged, scruffy Keanu we’re all used to, he was instead spotted with a clean-shaven face. Unlike John Wick, it seems Ted won’t be rocking any facial hair.
And, as we’ve come to expect, it seems as if Reeves has hardly aged over the past couple of decades. Granted, he doesn’t look like a teenager anymore, but the first Bill and Ted was released literally 30 years ago. The sequel, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, came out in 1991.
Seriously, how old do you feel right now? Because we’re about to join the AARP and start looking into cruises for seniors.
As one might guess, the latest installment in the Bill & Ted anthology will be set in the present. It features Winters and Reeves as the titular characters, but now we’ll get to meet their kids as well.
Brigette Lundy-Paine will be playing Bill’s daughter Thea, and Samara Weaving joins the cast as Billie – Theodore’s daughter. Clearly, the girls’ names are a nod to the guys’ best friends.
Several original cast members will also be returning, including Hal Landon Jr. (Ted’s dad) and Amy Stoch (Missy). Death, it seems, is also back, and the character will again be played by William Sadler.
The film is slated to hit theaters on August 21, 2020.
