What are they doing exactly? Writing down the names of every possible actor on the planet on pieces of paper, throwing them in a hat and picking one up everyday? Jeez!!

How did Cumberbatch get in the mix? He is probably booked for the rest of his life already!

Happy birthday, Luca! the 40s are great, I sorta remember them

Maybe I'm mistaken, but Keanu's response to a hugely excited interviewer asking about Dr Strange sounded as polite as could be but not very interested - but of course the internets have taken this gentle demurral as "OMG! he's gonna do it!!!"

@MmeRenard: Nope, not mistaken at all. That's exactly what happened and the internet being, well the internet, picked that dot, drew a face around it, gave it a nice background, framed it and put it up at The Louvre. One site went so far as to say, its down to ONLY him :-) but i guess... you never know!

Exactly, Neaura, and really well said.
The interviewer breathlessly asked Keanu considering Dr. Strange, which I thought to be a question way out of left field and right at the beginning of the interview. I'm sure that Keanu was startled by it (folks, we are, after all, talking about John Wick here, rather more significantly than Dr strange!), but was polite as ever, saying that he hadn't read it and wasn't familiar, possibly if there was an interesting script...
What else would you say? "no, I don't know it and am not interested"?

I "love" the entertainment media - not saying "absolutely not" means "I'm definitely going to do it!"
This raises kind of a cultural question for me about "maybe means yes" and "not emphatically no means yes" that I find disturbing on a larger level.

Part of my reaction is that I don't know it either, and while a brilliant TV series sounds great (John Rain), a cartoon character does not interest me. Right now, I'm betting that it does not happen with Keanu. We'll see, I guess.

Right?!

They never stopped working on the painting though :-) Yeah interestingly they seem to have a different set of synonyms and meanings that we are slowly getting a hang of.

Even though I don't agree with the A Scanner Darkly part, the article scores on other observations and the comments, atleast the ones I could see are :-)

This one is interesting... can't say I agree completely with this either but he makes more sense than most people out there.

um, was there something wrong with Hardball? (not "Hard Ball")
and this:

"We don’t hold him in the same regard as others with substantially weaker resumes in the action genre because of his general awfulness in both acting and film quality"

There's nothing that can be said in response to that should be written amongst genteel persons as are here. I am SO pissed off at the whole business of DECADES of damning him with faint, reluctant, conditional "praise" - in which M-F'ing decade, after how many elegant choices, how many wonderful roles, how much sheer excellence, will that wear off?

SURELY Keanu with an iPhone is one of the signs of the Apocalypse, is it not?

... probably never. :|
But we can still hope.




um, was there something wrong with Hardball?

well, looks like many people didn't 'get' its humor, its quirky-ness, Conor's own particular awesomeness... didn't fit their preconceived ideas about how that world or that movie shoud behave and sound like.

Just like most people don't get the beauty of Constantine, they don't get Conor either :-(, I feel the same about 47 Ronin as a movie. Its hopefully something people will get after repeated viewing but then again, who would bother to do that?! But like Luca said yeah I'm counting on hope, now more than ever. I do see a glimmer though...
