The Calgary Sun (Ca), August 2000
Keanu Reeves is having an excellent career.
He’s pulling down $15 million US a picture and his dance card is filled until the fall of 2001.
Not bad for one half of the spaced-out duo of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the little 1989 movie that turned into a cult comedy hit.
Fans of Adventure and its 1991 sequel Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey still call Reeves Ted.
“I love that people still see me as Ted. I did that character for a year of my life and I loved every minute of it. Alex Winter (who played Bill) and I always joke that we want to play Bill and Ted at 40.
“They’d be in some second-rate Vegas bar.”
And where will Keanu be in four years when he turns 40?
“Hopefully he’ll still be acting. I love acting more and more with each passing year. I feel grateful and blessed that I can do it.”
