E3 2019 - Matrix and John Wick star Keanu Reeves is in Cyberpunk 2077

One of the most eagerly-anticipated games around right now stars one of the most beloved actors of the time.

Matrix and John Wick star Keanu Reeves is playing a starring role in CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077, lending his likeness and performance to the character, erm, Johnny Silverhand.

For clarity, that's a man with a silver hand. We think his name is Johnny. He's a cyberpunk person. No, not to be confused with Johnny Mnemonic, the 1996 film based on the short story by William Gibson.

Not only is Reeves appearing in the game, he also showed up Microsoft's stage to announce Cyberpunk 2077's release date - April 16th, 2020 - while also being his usual charming and awkward self.
