Keanu Reeves is Mr. Jekyll

Keanu Reeves is Mr. Jekyll

Keanu Reeves, sporting a scruffy beard, takes a stroll around New York City’s Soho neighborhood on Sunday (May 10).

The 44-year-old Matrix star is in talks to play the split-personality character Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Universal’s retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson‘s classic will be modernized and given a more ‘horror’ twist thanks to critically-acclaimed Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro.

FYI: Keanu is sporting Prps “Barracuda” regular straight leg jeans in dark vintage ($374, Tobi.com).

Is it just me, or does Keanu’s facial hair grow in a funny way?

# 2

Yeah, he’s famous for his splotchy beard. That’s OK. I’d still hit it. ;)

Yes it does seem to grow in a little funny, but I always thought he was a very handsome man.

He is hot as hell. The only one in his generation who is aging well.

@ferdis: I totally agree!

He looks great here! Who wouldn’t want somebody like this to darken their door, or show up for an job interview with his appearance. Obviously, he is a big fan of good hygiene. There is nothing dishelved or minatory about this guy. I hope this look becomes de rigueur in Hollywood ASAP!

down to earth actor.
that’s nice!!!

oh god he’s gorgeous he looks perfect here really manly i love this look on him but i think he’s a sad guy he needs joy in his life very badly and good luck with that project guillermo del toro is very very talented i’m looking forward 2 seeing it

Universal has 2 “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” movies in the works. Guillermo del Toro is not attached to the Keanu Reeves version.

he’s sexy, he’s handsome, he’s it baby.
he takes my breath away.
same as the great great dame elizabeth taylor.
you know the line.

Fofo, fofo, beautifull….Kiss kiss

He’s not creepy. He’s hot even with a beard and a hat.

Happy 45th birthday, my hairy hunk. You look hot hairy and clean shaven. I prefer you without the hair cos i can’t see your beautiful smile or sexy eyes. Love you 4ever KR.
