Keanu Reeves has explained why he’s such a fan of sci-fi and why he likes to star in sci-fi movies so much. He revealed this during a recent interview with the BBC in which he also explained why he loved starring in Cyberpunk 2077 so much.
Keanu Reeves is easily one of our favourite actors here at Small Screen, and one of the reasons we love him so much is because he’s not afraid to try and do other things. What I mean by this is he loves to push himself and try out different movie genres, and even do stuff like starring in a video game.
Reeves plays one of the characters in the much talked about Cyberpunk 2077. He plays a character called Johnny Silverhand, but this isn’t his first foray into the world of science fiction. He’s also starred in the likes of The Matrix and Bill & Ted (which is sort of science fiction). Reeves recently explained why he loves the genre so much.

Here’s what Reeves had to say about his love of science fiction during a recent interview he did with the BBC:
Yeah, I’m curious about the future and I think growing up on William Gibson and Neuromancer, and reading Philip K. Dick, even Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Watching Road Warriors, Mad Max, Bladerunner. Even Planet of the Apes. Reading Lord of the Rings. Exploration of fantasy, science fiction. I dunno, I just feel the motifs that occur in this kind of storytelling is oftentimes examining the world that we live in. for me there was something aspirational or supportive in participating in these stories that gave me escapism, but also helped me define my world view and interpret the world.
