While promoting John Wick: Chapter 4, Keanu Reeves crowned himself the “puppy king” of trivia.
Reeves sat down with The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon for a few rounds of “Pup Quiz,” in which contestants answer animal-themed questions for a golden retriever prize. Five rounds were held — including one Double Puppardy and Final Puppardy round — with trivia questions including, “Which of the following is NOT the name of a real animal species?” and “A dik-dik is what kind of animal?” Despite proclaiming “I’m so terrible with this” at first, Reeves won multiple puppies against Fallon, though one crawled into the host’s lap midway through the game.
Keanu Reeves Is More Than Just John Wick
Since the release of original John Wick, which followed a retired assassin avenging the murder of a puppy he received from his late wife, Reeves has undergone a career resurgence as both an action hero and movie star. Alongside the Wick sequels, Reeves appeared in movies like The Neon Demon, Toy Story 4 and DC League Of Super-Pets, while reprising his other signature roles of Ted Logan and Neo in Bill & Ted Face the Music and The Matrix Resurrections. He also voiced rock singer Johnny Silverhand in the video game Cyberpunk 2077, with developer CD Projekt Red modeling Silverhand on Reeves’ likeness. Reeves will return for the game’s sequel DLC Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, alongside Idris Elba as a new character named Solomon Reed.
Leading up to its release, Reeves described John Wick: Chapter 4 as “the hardest movie I’ve ever made. In terms of action, it’s the hardest film I’ve ever made. But that’s what makes it good.” Chapter 4‘s early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, with critics praising its action, performances, and even pacing at nearly three hours long. CBR’s review called John Wick: Chapter 4, “a great new entry into the series that finds the proper balance between escalating the action of previous films while still imbuing it with enough unique energy to make it stand out.”
Despite initial plans to shoot a fifth John Wick movie, director Chad Stahelski recently declared Chapter 4 the last Wick movie for now. However, Reeves, Ian McShane and the late Lance Reddick will return as Wick, Continental Hotel owner Winston and concierge Charon for Ana de Armas’ Ballerina, a spinoff set in the John Wick universe. Additionally, Reeves and Stahelski dedicated Chapter 4 to Reddick, who recently passed away at 60 years old of natural causes.
John Wick: Chapter 4 arrives in cinemas on March 24.
