Keanu Reeves Joins A Drug Cartel

by Josh Tyler

Keanu Reeves may soon head to Columbia. Prodution Weekly says he’s in negotiations to star in Cartagena as an undercover agent infiltrating Columbian drug cartels. A dangerous business, with the recent drug/gang related violence escalating south of the border.

My question is: How does a whiter than white Keanu pass as a Columbia drug lord? Sweet Jesus please tell me he’s not getting a mystic tan and slapping on a bushy mustache to play a Mexican. You’re no Robert Downey Mr. Reeves. Stick with figuring out some unbelievable MacGuffin which forces the cartel to accept you as one of their own despite the color of your skin. That this always works in movies, even though it’d probably get you a bullet in real life… gringo.

...I call AU fish. (Like the one that just infiltrated the guestbook, although that might just have been someone trying to be sarcastic. It's hard to tell.)

 For crying out loud, if he's taking over a part originally given to Clive Owen, he doesn't look anymore Columbian or Mexican than Keanu does.
