Leading Roles – 23
Keanu Reeves has made himself an almighty career as a leading action man. Cornerstone franchise of ‘The Matrix’ and ‘John Wick’ have cemented him in the action genre. Keanu hasn’t ever been afraid of taking different roles with the incredibly creative ‘A Scanner Darkly’ being the biggest stand-out for him.

When it comes to the supporting roles Keanu has taken, we find ourselves diving into a few early-career roles, ‘Parenthood’, ‘Dracula’. Or his more villainous roles, ‘Man of Tai Chi’, ‘The Neon Demon’ and ‘The Watcher’. Supporting immensely creative director Ana Lily Amirpour’s ‘The Bad Batch’ is also a huge plus
