whoa, the state of my Chinese has completely degenerated. /o\\

The pink-bordered bubble with his face in it just says 'Keanu Reeves'.

Regarding the text, what I can make of it (with help from Google Translate... well mostly with Google Translate):

"He Chao Yi (Josie Ho) and her husband something-Chen had a secret meeting in Beijing with male star Keanu Reeves, who looked very mysterious in his black leather jacket and scarf. They arrived earlier than expected in the coffee shop in the hotel lobby and contacted him via cell phone. According to Yuen Wo Ping, the choreographer of 'Man of Tai Chi' which stars Keanu as the male lead, Josie really wanted to be the female lead. She came specifically to discuss the matter with Keanu. Their meeting was originally scheduled for the twentieth of this month, but it clashed with Josie's father's birthday celebrations. Josie is a good girl and did not want to miss her father's birthday, but neither did she want to miss the opportunity to act alongside Keanu, and so moved the meeting forward.

The two of them met for an hour, then Josie and her husband left the hotel. Keanu later left the hotel alone, unaccompanied, and waited a long time for his car to come. Rumours say that Keanu will be directing the film, and personally select the heroine. He had previously met with actress Huang, and news has it that the parties involved were very unhappy. This time, he met with Josie, as he had seen her work and appreciated her appearance, personality and acting skills. With Josie's amazing English, communication was no problem. It is said that after meeting to talk, both sides are very happy over the possibilities of cooperation."

How can you properly audition for Mr Reeves with your husband there? And why oh why does someone make him wait for a car?
Anyways, thanks for the google translation Anakin. :)

Arya, that little article snippet was interesting enough that I wanted to post it here:

----------------------
Keanu Reeves is in Hong Kong casting roles for his self-penned film Man of Tai Chi.

About 10 actors showed up on Sunday, including Bernice Jan Liu (廖碧儿), who once starred in the Hollywood film The King of Fighters, and martial arts actor Tommy Tam (狄龙).

Reeves just met with actresses Eva Huang (黄圣依), Crystal Liu (刘亦菲) and Josie Ho (何超仪) in Beijing last week.

It was said the superstar might make Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) the lead actress but he remained tight-lipped, diplomatically saying they are all great actresses and the film is still in the casting stage.

The big-budget Mandarin-and-English-language film is set to start shooting in February in Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau and the US.
----------------------

So it looks like he's been meeting with a whole lot of actresses for the role of the female lead. I wonder what character she'll play. The villain's girlfriend? I seem to recall that it was mentioned before.

I wonder if they already have all the other cast in the box, or if that's next.

It's going to be a Mandarin-and-English film. Does Zhang Ziyi speak English? I thought she didn't. It'll be interesting to see if this movie passes the Bechdel Test (http://thehathorlegacy.com/why-film-schools-teach-screenwriters-not-to-pass-the-bechdel-test/).

Keanu intentions are always positive, aware, and pro female so I would not worry about that test. ;)

well, the dog's described as "Good with Dogs, Good with Kids, Good with Adults, Requires a yard, Likes to play with toys, Affectionate, Eager To Please, Intelligent, Even-tempered, Gentle."

Sounds like human!Keanu. :|

just to refresh...he was Ortiz the Dogboy in Freaked, he was in a band called Dogstar, he barks in Feeling Minnesota, and I have heard him howl on several interviews. I saw him in a dogcollar in MOPI. And there was that whole Glenn Close calling him a St Barnard puppy thing.

(As we say here in the Southeastern US) Oh my! *deeply blushes while fanning face*

That being said, I cannot tell you what I am thinking in fear of being censored!! ;)

However, I can say that with his strength training and flexibility and my circuit training and extensive yoga practice, one hell of a game of Twister comes to mind...**whew!!**

"Oh, hell, YEAH!" Bring it on. Everyone on WINM can play.

And Keanu and Jackie and the pandas are damn cute together, too.
