So you get to see Johnny as the rockstar. You know you hear about his military past and he’s fighting for his survival. So he’s kinda got all of these things leaning into the moment of this guy. It’s really a kind of an interpretation because I think there’s a Johnny Silverhand in all of us. He’s got a lot of energy, a good sense of humor, if not a little dark at times.”

Keanu’s excitement, not just about his role but also the game, bodes well for the fans. His wholesome and breathtaking reputation precedes him, and fans can expect his opinion to be genuine.
