According to Tim Allen, Keanu Reeves will be one of the cast members of the upcoming Toy Story 4 film. Last week, the teaser trailer debuted and Tim Allen spoke about the movie during an appearence on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the 21st of November.
Before discussing Allen’s Last Man Standing, one of the highest rated situation comedies on TV right now, Fallon probed him on the new Toy Story.
In response, Tim said, “they really will surprise you with the toys they came up with,” adding that older characters came back, and new ones resurfaced. Allen said that Keanu has a “great part.” However, it isn’t clear exactly what part was given to Keanu.

The Toy Story franchise first began back in 1995, one year after Disney’s highly successful The Lion King. While it was a fruitful project, it didn’t come close to the near billion dollars that Lion King made in 1994.
Toy Story, however, has had three sequels, earning more than the Lion King as a whole. Regardless, this will be one of the first animated films for Keanu Reeves, who has had a mixed career in both drama and action films.
Some of his most iconic roles include The Matrix, Point Break, John Wick, The Devil’s Advocate, Speed, Constantine, and Bram Stroker’s Dracula. Recently, Keanu saw his career take off in a big way – yet again – with the massive success of John Wick.
Before then, he had starred in several independent movies, and had, for the most part, stayed out of the public’s sphere. His last big action film before John Wick was 47 Ronin, which was one of the biggest box office bombs of the year in 2013.
Despite his career fluctuations, Reeves has a reputation in Hollywood – as well as the entertainment industry – as one of the nicest and most kind people to work with. Several memes of Keanu have surfaced online, including one where he sits on a park bench by himself eating a sandwich, and in another where he takes the train in a crowded subway.
