I figured since I did a poll of who should play Keanu Reeves I should do them for the other key players of the musical. So, up next is Ghost Patrick Swayze (aka Patrick Swayze).
This one was tough because Mr. Swayze is a hard force to follow. It’s like trying to capture lightening in a bottle, beautiful yet dangerous.
Here are the list of contenders:
Come on! Is there really any other person you can think of who would kill it as hard as The Swayze!?!?
Neil Patrick Harris is clearly the only choice! Unless there’s this magical unicorn man that looks exactly like Patrick Swayze living on top of a mountain that rained candy everyday, then maybe we can talk.
Honestly, from the beginning I’ve always dreamed of having NPH play Ghost Patrick Swayze. Hands down he would be perfect and able to bring the sexyness and humor that Swayze has always brought to his films.
Also NPH’s voice is like an angel!
So far the billing for the Keanu! The Musical dream cast: Keanu Reeves played byJoseph Gordon Levitt Ghost Patrick Swayze played by Neil Patrick Harris
This cast is really shaping up, shaping up in my mind.
But a girl can dream!
Hope you’ve been having a good week and why not cape the end of the week with a little treat, a little thing I’ve been working on with my good friend Alexsandra Chelini to create a Keanu! Comic series. It’s been fun brainstorming ideas and Wednesday we went to Drink and Draw held every Wednesday at The New Parkway theater in Oakland.
Here’s what I created:
I’m working on a quick, rough drawing of a series called Everyday Keanu! Where it’s just him doing everyday, mundane things like celebrating Batman day a day late or eating a cupcake. I’m excited to get more going and don’t have too much now but check it out:
Also I’m super excited to see what Alex comes up with because she’s an amazingly talented artist! What we’ve been talking about is having a Keanu! Pin Up Series for the ladies (and gentleman). So, stay tuned for that!
Should be a crazy Keanu! ride and I hope you’ll enjoy the ride!
Last week I posted a poll asking the readers who would be best suited for the role of Keanu Reeves for the musical (that is, if Mr. Reeves wouldn’t like to fill the position himself). Thank you for everyone who voted and results are in (drum roll please)…
The role of Keanu Reeves in my Keanu! The Musical “Dream Cast” goes to…….
Even if this dream collaboration doesn’t happen I found his awesomely-amazing collaborative production company HitRecord!
I’m going to post some Keanu! The Musical excerpts for feedback and hopefully find other folks who want to contribute to this fun musical! Should be fun and interesting and can’t wait to check out and work with some great creatives! How cool!
A surprisingly thrilling thriller with some predictable twists, this film by director Sam Raimi showed me how a slew of Academy Awarded actors can all share the spot light and work together as well oiled machine.
The sparks of anger and fear that flew between Cate Blanchett and Keanu Reeves was fantastic and really made the movie for me.
Here’s a clip of Keanu being accused for murder of Kate Holme’s character.
Confused? Just watch the movie and see how this all melts together.
The Magic…..The Love….The Story that will bring us all together…..
Here are the players:
Sorry Adam Van Der Veer is not pictured, though he did an amazing job as Charlize Theron/Rachel Weisz!
This is just the next step to BROADWAY!!!!! Or at least to a stage performance that will run a few weeks. Nonetheless, it was great and I got great feedback and will just make this musical stronger and better!
Keanu, don’t worry. It’s happening…it’s getting closer…one table reading at a time.
