Meatball sandwiches. Big ones.

Whew. I'm glad America wants to take credit for Keanu Reeves now.

We dodged a bullet there...

He's not a robot. He's a marionette. You can see the strings and he's totally wooden.

Not at all impressed.

All joshing aside, the scriptwriters of "The Matrix" and "Constantine" knew how to play to his strengths. Minimal lines, no soliloquies, just exude the 'tude. Plus a hot babe to distract the eye. That doesn't mean I'm going to see "The Day the Earth Stood Still", though.

Wait a minute, I'm a robot?

The British tried this, but the resulting bot just kept shouting "EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!"
 
2008-11-26 11:05:32 AM  
Apparently he has American, British, and Canadian citizenship. So we are all to blame!

This is how it starts people, then it's a war between us and the machines. Traffic cameras are the start of them wanting to govern us.

Don't tell me you weren't moved by his portrayal of an FBI agent on a speeding bus. I think the movie was called "The Bus that Couldn't Stop"

Ok, since Keanu is a robot, is Paris Hilton the first RealDoll with AI?.

I think because his mom was British, his dad was American, and he was raised in Canada.

When it comes down to robotic actors, you don't get any more stoic than Kevin Costner.

Wait, subby fails, he assumes falsly that what keano reaves does is acting.
