Many would contest that Keanu Reeves’s most memorable performance was his portrayal of Neo in The Matrix Trilogy. But before he donned that leather coat and learned those smooth action moves, he became Ted first in 1991’s sci-fi comedy Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
In this black and white still photo from the film, the now 49-year-old Reeves (today is his birthday!), as Ted, does the signature air-guitar move that he and co-star Alex Winter, as Bill, made so famous. Death looks on as they strum their imaginary intruments.
Happy 49th birthday, Mr. Reeves. Hope your celebration was Excellent! as Bill and Ted would always say.
