Reeves tempted by Nicholson comedy
Keanu Reeves was tempted into following up his turn as Neo in the Matrix films with a supporting role in the romantic comedy Something's Gotta Give because of an unusual script and the cast he would be working with.
The film stars Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton as a wealthy, middle-aged couple who meet and embark on an emotional adventure neither of them expected.
"It's refreshing and something you don't often see in Hollywood films," said Reeves of the older man, older woman relationship.
Reeves, who plays a young doctor who becomes the other man in the love triangle, told journalists:
"It's a shame that in American cinema, knowledge and life experience aren't really respected.
"Older people are either curmudgeons or overly wise or dying. It's nice to see the vitality, the love, the search and the union that can still occur.
"And with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton in those roles, it's funny, sexy and fun."
