Footage Of Teenage Keanu Reeves Presenting Canadian News Goes Viral

Footage Of Teenage Keanu Reeves Presenting Canadian News Goes Viral

Keanu Reeves has gone viral once again, thanks to footage of the legendary actor and all-round good guy appearing on Canadian news way back when he was a teenager.

Some may know that before Reeves rose to fame thanks to roles in the Bill & Ted series, the Matrix trilogy and other high profile film roles, he was a correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Joining the broadcaster in 1984 when he was still just 19, Reeves was part of the Going Great segment - which saw the host travel to various places across North America.

The footage that has recently resurfaced and been shared all over social media is a piece starring the Hollywood action star as he takes a look at the first ever Canadian International Teddy Bear Convention.

As the video at the top of the article shows, Reeves was clearly a star in the making. Oozing natural charisma, he is sharp-witted and makes several jokes as he glides through the segment, talking to several furry friends as he goes.

This clip pre-dates the actor's ascent into the movie limelight, coming as it does four years before his supporting role in 1988's Dangerous Liasons, and five before Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

John Wick Series Named Keanu Reeves' Best Film Franchise

After sometimes focusing on smaller budget and independent films, Reeves' stock is once again at an all-time high, thanks to the success of the John Wick franchise.

He is slated to appear in two more films in the series, to be filmed back-to-back.

He's also reprising his role as Neo as part of the much-anticipated fourth Matrix film, while Bill & Ted Face the Music is finally released in the UK this month, after delays due to Covid-19.

Speaking ahead of the making of the fourth and fifth John Wick, director Chad Stahelski told Comic Book that the plan was to make sure 4 was a solid film, before moving onto 5 afterwards, rather than working on both concurrently.

"There's the studio business side of things where, of course, I think they think Keanu and I are getting on in our years, so they're going to try do to two back to back," Stahelski said.

"That's interesting. It's very flattering. I'm psyched that I have a studio behind me that wants to keep making John Wicks."

He added: "The way Keanu and I approach it with our writing team is, 'Look, we have ideas, but it's not like I'm working with two sets of writers on two movies. We're going to write a really good number four.

"If a really good number four feels solid to Keanu and I, we'll make that one. That doesn't mean we won't plan on a five or start writing five, but we want to make sure we have a solid story."
