Keanu Reeves has had multiple iconic roles, where “iconic” is defined as having a long-lasting impact on popular culture. So far he has had:

That is quite a record - three movie franchises, plus another that was remade later on (Point Break, in a much weaker version). It is an impressive hit rate for an actor who is often assumed to have roughly the same character as his role in the Bill and Ted movies.

What is even more remarkable is that his iconic characters have been quite different to each other. While actors such as Tom Hanks and Leonardo di Caprio are seen as “serious”, Keanu can also be said to have performed a wide range of characters. He has done his share of romantic roles too.
