Overexposure can dim the brightest Hollywood star — except, it seems, Keanu Reeves. The prolific Toronto-bred action hero is riding high on a dizzying array of film and TV roles while internet memes and tributes have exploded in recent months with unified adoration. The so-called Keanuaissance is sweet justice for devotees of the heartthrob, who has weathered decades of critical pans that often dismiss his acting as little more than wooden portrayals of himself.
Most notably, the 54-year-old is dominating the box office with “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum,” which pushed the cult franchise into the mainstream when it debuted at #1 mid-May, and appears in last weekend’s #1 film, “Toy Story 4,” as the voice of bombastic Canuck stuntman Duke Caboom.
