We never got caught up in the Sad Keanu memes, so Pajiba has been mostly Keanu-free since last year’s The Secret Lives of Pippa Lee. It’s been sad not having that guy to kick around — he’s such an easy target, but at the same time, kind of really likable. Sure, he’s a bad actor, and yeah, 80 percent of his movies are crap. But he’s a good presence in our lives, and a needed reminder that, if you try hard enough, you too can overcome a complete lack of talent!
Anyway, news is that his movie, Henry’s Crime, has been picked up for American distribution. Like most Keanu movies, it features a lot of other stars who are much better actors than he, but not nearly as big a box-office draw, like Vera Farmiga, James Caan, Fisher Stevens and Judy Greer.
Here’s a clip from the movie. James Caan has gotten really old all of a sudden, but look Keanu! At least for today, he is back in our lives. Let’s enjoy this fleeting moment together.
