Keanu's bedside manner

Keanu Reeves has traded in his trademark Matrix trench coat for a stethoscope.

It's for his role as a surgeon in the film called 'Something's Gotta Give' which also stars Jack Nicholson and Diane Keeton where they all end up in a bizarre love triangle.

Keanu went to great lengths to research playing a heart specialist - he went undercover at a New York hospital:

"It was great actually; I went to the Southampton Hospital. The people there were really gracious with their time. I went to some ER rooms, met with one cardiologist. I spoke with my GP about bedside manner and stethoscope techniques and working with the pressure cuff and stuff like that. Trying to figure out what my life would be like, bedside manner and doctoring things."

Unfortunately we have to wait til February to see 'Something's Gotta Give'.
