‘I love the John Wick world’: Keanu Reeves shares Wick is one of his favorite characters to play as he plugs fourth installment of the action film

Keanu Reeves was seen on Good Morning America on Monday morning as he talked about John Wick 4.

The legendary action hero, 58, said that John Wick is one of his favorite roles he’s ever played – even more than his roles in Speed and the Matrix franchise. 

‘It’s a fun character to be able to have that, you know, that John Wick kinda thing,’ he said. 

‘I mean, I think the film is really epic, and I love playing the role,’ he continued. ‘I love the John Wick world.’ 

The Point Break star – who was proposed to by a fan at SXSW – also said it’s ‘cool’ and ‘kind’ for people to be referring to John Wick: Chapter 4 as one of the greatest action movies of all time. 

Reeves has been playing the assassin since the first John Wick movie in 2014.

Playing John Wick requires ‘training before the training’ and ‘a John Wick toolbox’ according to Reeves.

Keanu noted that he works with the film’s stunt coordinator on the mix of ‘judo, jiu-jitsu and weapons manipulation,’ or gun fu, as it has come to be known. 

GMA’s Will Reeve asked him if he’s feeling his age when performing the complicated stunts the role requires. 

‘I’m not quite there yet,’ he said, but the fourth John Wick movie ‘got me closer.’

‘I’m definitely feelin’ the age,’ he said, also explaining that he’s ‘more experienced’ and therefore ‘more efficient’ in tackling the action than he was when starting out.

Last week, Reeves’ John Wick co-star Lance Reddick passed away suddenly last week at the age of 60.

Reeves shared a statement with the film’s director Chad Stahelski.

Last week, the Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure actor attended the New York City premiere of his latest movie.

On the red carpet, he was asked how he felt about being the internet’s boyfriend. 

‘I really appreciate the goodwill,’ he told People when asked how he feels about the internet’s love for him.

And it’s not just the internet swooning over the Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure actor’s charm.  

Keanu’s John Wick 4 co-star Rina Sawayama stopped by Good Morning America on Wednesday morning to chat up her new film and her co-star’s legendary niceness.

‘He was so sweet…he’s not a very showy person,’ began the Japanese/British singer.

‘He does things a lot behind the scenes to make sure everyone’s feeling okay. So kind.’
