Keanu Reeves gives heartwarming response to young fan who says he's his favorite actor

This is very sweet

Fresh off of the runaway commercial and critical success of John Wick: Chapter 4, Hollywood legend Keanu Reeves has gone viral once again – this time thanks to a lovely interaction between the actor and a young fan.

The moment occurred at a surprise book signing in Los Angeles this month. The event was to promote the latest issue of BRZRKR, a comic book co-created and written by Reeves following an immortal warrior, known as Berzerker, as he fights his way through the ages.

In a clip from the event posted online by IGN, the 58-year-old actor is seen meeting nine-year-old superfan Noah who excitedly tells him: “I’m such a big fan,” later adding: “You’re probably my favourite actor in the whole world. You’re the best!”

Smiling through the interaction, Reeves cordially introduces himself to Noah and thanks him for his kind words. This is before he asks the boy if he saw Toy Story 4 in which the actor voiced the Evel Knievel-esque stunt performer toy Duke Caboom.

“Yeah, he’s my favourite character,” Noah responded, to which Reeves replied with the character’s catchphrase: “Canada’s greatest stuntman!”

The John Wick and Matrix star then said: “Well, I’m glad you liked it. I really liked playing Duke Caboom,” and signed a BRZRKR comic for Noah.  You can watch the interaction right here:

The latest issue of BRZRKR is subtitled Poetry of Madness and sees Berzerker travel to the mythical city of Atlantis to battle unspeakable monsters.

Back in 2021, meanwhile, Netflix acquired the rights to the comic book series, stating that it would adapt its story into a feature film. Reeves is attached to play the lead character in the movie.

As well as this, the actor will also appear in the John Wick prequel spin-off Ballerina next year and is set to star in a sequel to his 2005 cult superhero flick Constantine.
