It's been a few years since Reeves has been in a big movie, so don't feel bad if you're a bit fuzzy on his cinematic oeuvre. Perhaps one of these iconic names will ring a bell: Alex Wyler from "The Lake House?" Dr. Julian Mercer from "Something's Gotta Give?" Mike Riley Age 17 from "Young Again?" Even those who haven't seen "Young Again" surely remember the Mike Riley Age 17 craze that swept the nation like a bunch of plague rats all aged 17. Oh to return to those halcyon days when the nation stood united in its love for Mike Riley Age 17... and its HATRED for Mike Riley Age 16.
Oh, and he was also in some movie called "The Matrix"... or something.
In a recent GQ interview, Reeves talks about his new documentary on filmmaking, the aging process, and a little upcoming project tentatively titled BILL AND TED 3! This news has us totally stoked. Last we saw our intrepid heroes at the end of "Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey," they'd defeated their evil robot doppelgangers, married their princess girlfriends, and become world famous musicians. But according to Reeves, things aren't going so well for them at the beginning of the "Bill and Ted 3" script.
"One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world. And they haven't done it. So everybody is kind of like 'Where is the song?' The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock"
Sounds harrowing! With the respective returns of Wayne and Garth, Beavis and Butthead, and now Bill and Ted, it's been a good couple of years to be a fan of Gen X doofus duos. Could a Randall and Dante reunion be next? We can only hope.
Are you excited for "Bill and Ted 3?"
