Next Up For Keanu: A Play

Keanu Reeves says he would like to follow up his performances in the "Matrix" trilogy by acting on stage.

"I need to do a play," Reeves recently told reporters. "I want to go do a play. Hopefully next year. I'm trying to find a new play. I've got to get back on stage because I love it. I need to. I really want to play as an actor. Just to go through the process as an actor. It's not short segments of acting. It's the whole experience. It's an interactive medium... It's really for me, home. I love it. I love it."

Asked if he ever worries about being typecast, the action star who has also appeared in comedies like "Parenthood" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and period dramas like "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and "Dangerous Liaisons" says he hopes that will never be the case.

"I can't control who hires me," he reasoned. "It has always been my hope as an actor to work in different genres and play different characters."
