I've been watching some of Keanu's movies the last few days, and it struck me how his voice is noticeably less intoned in the movies than when he talks in interviews. It's as if his voice gets stuck in his throat. It's a bit strange, because his intonation is so much more varied when he doesn't perform.

I just watched this video clip of him and Robin Wright Penn at TIFF, and he just sounds so relaxed. Maybe his perfectionism on the set puts that added pressure on him that makes his throat tense up? What do you guys think?

Yeah; it's not just his voice, but everything else. He's a lot more controlled when acting. The perfectionist thing probably does play a part, because if he's trying to get it just right, there's not much room for variancy.

Another little snippet about Keanu's obvious immortality:

It's official -- Keanu Reeves is Immortal

October 28, 2009 -- By: Pete Stanton

Ever noticed anything strange about Keanu Reeves? Something weird that you just can't put your finger on like, oh, you know, the fact that he's never EVER aged! Well a new video has just been released that has compelling evidence that the actor has been around for over two centuries.

Now this may come as a shock to some but, be honest, this man barely looks any different from those early Bill and Ted films to The Matrix. Or between those crazy surfing days with Swayze on Point Break and the recent The Day The Earth Stood Still. Even growing a beard didn't fool us.

How this has happened is difficult to say. Are we are all living inside the Matrix and Keanu Reeves writes the code for his own avatar? Or is he simply a vampire? Who knows. What we do have, however, is some rock solid evidence in the form of a YouTube video (so it must be true) which basically proves Mr Keanu Reeves' immortality.

Watch this and know the truth...

And here's a "sighting" snippet from the Dogstar days:

Keanu Reeves
14-Jun-2008
Written by: jill burke

the best day ever

Back in 1998 I lived in NJ. Where I lived was a small town called the Highlands. The next town over is sea bright, I was driving thru to get home and I noticed at a nightclub that was there they were advertising a band playing called Dogstar featuring Keanu Reeves! I bugged out stopped in the club and to my amazement purchased 1 ticket for myself. The night of the concert I got there early of course and was hanging out playing pool, never really scoping out who was around. The next person up to play was Mr. Reeves himself, I swear I almost dropped! Keanu played a game of pool with me. He was also with his bandmates which I didn't know who they were but I must tell you he was the koolest guy I had ever met and hottest, but I'm telling you he was so down to earth. He said goodbye and disappeard to only be seen onstage later, but I felt so privileged to have met him you wouldn't even understand. Every time I see him on tv which is quite often, whoever is with me, I tell them I met him. All I hear is moans because I always repeat the time I met Keanu!

... so he's either a vampire or an immortal or we simply live in the Matrix.
I vote for the last option. that would really explain a lot ;) :D

( and the holographic universe theories come to mind ;) )

Yeah, as attractive as the idea of K being one of Anne's boys is, I have to vote for the Matrix too, that would not only explain a lot, it would explain EVERYTHING!

:D

And speaking of the sighting - WHAT IS IT about this Man that he has this kind of impact on people just by being himself?!? I am toying with a theory here.. we the commoners are the 'pets', and K is one of the 'owners'. Any of you who have lived with animals - think about it - how our pets must see us, is that how we see K? A whole other species that we can not fathom but are fascinated with in some instances to the point of love? So much so that we don't know why - and don't care? All we know is that we want to be near him in whatever way we can manage..

I guess that's as good an answer as any other that's been proposed ;).

nice theory you've got there. I'd say that, since pets are involved, the answer is food. more specifically, food for thought ;) He provides exquisite assortments of it ;) :D

Another little snippet re. Henry's Crime, including some kind concern for Our Man's welfare:

Romancing Keanu: Here's a romantic comedy cast we never thought we'd see: Keanu Reeves, James Caan, and Vera Farmiga, in Henry's Crime. Reeves will play a man falsely accused of a Buffalo bank robbery and Farmiga will play his love interest. It's disconcerting to see Keanu play a character forced to navigate the snow-covered streets of Buffalo. This man was born to surf. Someone get him a wave! [Variety]

Perhaps kind ;).

Or perhaps a little dig at the Ted/Johnny days. Of course there is the Hawaiian factor, I suppose that equates with surfing :).

Though Keanu technically didn't learn to surf until Point Break.

A satanic snippet this time:

As Devil's Night Descends, Here Are Cinema's Greatest Satans

(snippage)

Al Pacino in "The Devil's Advocate"
Satan comes into the world and takes human form as -- wouldn't you know it? -- a lawyer! In what might be Keanu Reeves' finest performance -- after "Bill & Ted"... nobody's messing with that classic -- the "whoa"-talking surfer dude cleans up and puts on a power suit when Pacino's devil-in-disguise lures him to New York City (Hell on Earth!) to work at his devious criminal defense law firm. Bad guys go free, demons slave away as partner and Charlize Theron bares all. In the end however, Keanu gives up all that power because his mommy taught him better than that. Stupid Keanu.
