Keanu Reeves launched his career playing bodacious teen Ted from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure in 1989 – but now he’s almost 50 the actor is reprising the role that first made him famous.
Keanu (47) has revealed details about his role in the new Bill and Ted 3 movie, 21 years after follow-up Bill & Ted’s Bogus Adventure came out. The actor revealed to GQ magazine that he is teaming up with his co-star Alex Winter and already has plot outlined.
“We have a nice story. We’ll see if anyone else wants to make it,” he says. The Matrix star say the story will focus on how the duo are coping as middle-aged men. “The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock,” says Keanu.
