keanu reevesBorn on September 2, 1964 in Beirut, Lebanon to an Hawaiian-Chinese father and English mother, Reeves later spent much of his youth in Toronto, Canada after his parents divorced. In high school, his major passion was ice hockey, later dropping out completely at 17 to work at various jobs while pursuing an acting career.

With minor roles and commercial parts on Canadian television, Reeves first appearance on film was in a small role in Youngblood, followed by more TV bit parts before his 1986 breakthrough performance in The River's Edge as a troubled teen.

Two years later, Reeves had another hit in the time-traveling comedy hit, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. However, Reeves surprised audiences - as he still continues to do - in a variety of roles ranging from a street hustler in My Own Private Idaho to a vampire killer in Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula to enlightened spirit in Bernardo Bertolucci's Little Budda.

Then in 1994 came Speed, an action-adventure thriller in which Reeves suddenly emerged as a strong leading man co-starring with Sandra Bullock, followed by another series of action-adventure performances in Johnny Mnemonic and Chain Reaction before impressing audiences again with a subtly terrorizing performance opposite Al Pacino in Devil's Advocate.

Since then, Reeves has become synonymous with his role as Neo in The Matrix, the mega-hit franchise that proved successful in two more outings with The Matrix Revolutions and The Matrix Reloaded all receiving big box office.

The actor's other notable appearances include starring roles in Constantine, a supernatural detective mystery, and in The Lake House opposite Sandra Bullock. In 2008, he starred in the crime drama Street Kings and appeared in a remake of the 1951 classic sci-fi film, The Day The Earth Stood Still.

Recent projects include Generation Um; the samurai film 47 Ronin; and Man of Tai Chi, which was also Reeves' directorial debut in 2013.

Coming up in 2015, Reeves stars in the horror film Knock, Knock in the role of a happily married California man terrorized by two femme fatales; followed by his role as a New York City detective in the thriller Daughter of God.
