Keanu Reeves might be the most popular actor on the planet right now. Maybe even more than Robert Downey Jr., hot off Avengers: Endgame. Reeves' next project is voicing new character Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4. As part of the promotions, Fab TV shared an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at various actors in the recording booth.
Keanu Planet focused on just the section with Keanu Reeves doing his thing as showboating motorcycle daredevil Duke. The recording booth clip includes the scene where Duke is introduced to Woody (Tom Hanks). You know who watched the video? Captain America himself. Chris Evans piped in with his thoughts, which echo my own:
There's already talk of Keanu Reeves maybe joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now we have Cap showing John Wick some love on social media. This is why Twitter isn't (purely) evil.
FabTV posted the full 11-minute video, including Toy Story 4 voice actors Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Christina Hendricks, Keegan-Michael Key, Ally Maki, and Keanu Reeves.
It's illuminating to see voice actors at work. As the video shows, they don't always get to work opposite their co-stars. Sometimes the lines are just dropped matter-of-factly by the filmmakers.
CinemaBlend's own Jessica Rawden was one of the lucky critics to get to see Toy Story 4 early, and she raved about it as "easily the funniest of the four movies."
Keanu Reeves really went deep with his portrayal of Duke Caboom, using the toy's rather sad backstory as motivation for helping Woody and Bo on their mission.
In addition to Toy Story 4, you probably already know Keanu Reeves is also in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, which is still kicking butt in theaters. And I hope you didn't miss him in the new Netflix romantic comedy Always Be My Maybe, since he's one of the best parts of an already great movie.
Toy Story 4 opens in theaters on June 21, as one of the many movies worth keeping track of through our handy 2019 movie schedule.
