Keanu Reeves has shaved his beard off and I’m not sure how I feel about this.

We all love Keanu Reeves. Almost too much has been said about what an outstanding man he is, but every time we think we’ve heard it all, something new happens that cements him as a true gent.

Granted, this story doesn’t really show him in any particularly light – simply a man who can successfully employ the use of a razor – but it does keep him in the public conscious and well, that’s enough for me.


As production begins for the highly anticipated third instalment of the Bill and Ted series, Bill and Ted: Face the Music, Reeves has shaved off his beard and obviously, he looks completely different.

That’s right, pictures of a clean-shaven Keanu were taken on the first day of shooting for the threequel and they’ve definitely got us pretty excited, if not slightly uneasy about the lack of beard.


Taken in New Orleans, the 54-year-old was seen doing one of his favourite pastimes of sitting on a wall, eating and smoking. He’s always at that.

It’s so weird that he’s 54, Fifty-four?! That’s the same age as the British Government announcing the cancellation of the TSR-2 aircraft project. The mind boggles.

But yeah, pictures of a beardless Keanu. Breath ’em in.


In the film, Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine will be joining as Bill and Ted’s daughters. Weaving will play Bill’s daughter Thea, while Lundy-Paine will be Ted’s daughter Billie.

Amy Stoch, Hal Landon Jr. and William Sadler will also return as Missy, Ted’s dad and Death, respectively.

Coming nearly 30 years after Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, Face the Music will see the duo joined by their daughters as they’re taken on another adventure through time and space, learning that their music is the only thing to save the world.

Pretty lowkey stuff.


Reeves has previously said that the film will definitely be a fan-pleaser, stating:

Over the years it’s been really nice to connect with people who love those characters and those films, and it’s been fun to hear from fans who have become parents who have shown it to their kids.

The ebullient spirit of [Bill and Ted], and the humour of the characters in the film, and the adventure they go on – I think it’s still funny.

This should be fun.
