PEOPLE ENJOY THE KEANU REEVES. THAT’S VERY NICE.>>THAT IS NICE! THANK YOU.>>Stephen: THE LATEST
INSTALLMENT OF “JOHN WICK” SHOWS YOU WITH REALLY EXTRAORDINARY
AGILITY. AND– AND PHYSICAL CAPABILITY. YOU– YOU– YOU SAY YOU DON’T DO
YOUR STUNTS, BUT DO YOU YOUR ACTION.>>I DO ACTION, YEAH.>>Stephen: WHAT DOES THAT
MEAN “DO YOUR ACTION” AS OPPOSED TO YOUR STUNT?>>OKAY SO I’LL DO SOME FIGHT
SCENES, AND THEN JOHN WICK WILL GET HIT BY A CAR, AND THAT’S
JACKSON SPIDEL–>>Stephen: THAT’S YOUR STUNT
MAN.>>YES, WHO IS AN AMAZING STUNT
MAN. AND HE GETS HIT BY THE CAR. THEN I’LL GET UP FROM THE CAR,
AND THEN I’LL DO A WHOLE BUNCH MORE OF, LIKE, ARE KUNG FU AND
WHATEVER AND JUDO. AND THEN MAYBE, YOU KNOW, THEN
IF I GET THROWN OFF OF SOMETHING, THEN JACKSON DOES HIS
THING.>>Stephen: RIGHT.>>BUT IN THE FILM —
>>Stephen: BUT YOU COULD IF YOU WANTED TO, BUT YOU DON’T
WANT TO TAKE HIS JOB AWAY.>>I COULD GET HIT BY A CAR BUT,
YOU KNOW, HOSPITAL. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: OH, YOU COULD GET
HIT BY A CAR ONCE, LAST FILM.>>THAT’S IT.>>Stephen: YES.>>BUT JACKSON IS A
PROFESSIONAL, AND HE KNOWS HOW TO DO THAT AND– BUT, I MEAN,
FOR JOHN WICK ACTION IS A PARTICULAR KIND OF ACTION. THE DIRECTOR WANTS TO MAKE IT
IMMERSIVE AND WANTS TO MAKE IT LUKE A PERFORMANCE, SO IT’S
REALLY LONG TAKES. SO WE– YOU KNOW, YOU TRAIN FOR
A WHILE.>>Stephen: WHAT I LOVE IS YOU
SEE THE FIGHT HAPPENING.>>YEAH, EXACTLY.>>Stephen: IT’S LIKE WATCHING
DANCE.>>YEAH, IT’S VERY MUCH LIKE
THAT. THE DIRECTOR HAS A VISION, THEN
THERE’S SOME CHOREOGRAPHY MOST OF THE TIME. AND THEN– AND THEN WE GO, WE
REHEARSE AND THEN WE PERFORM.>>Stephen: A SINGLE FIGHT,
LET’S SAY ONE FIVE-MINUTE FIGHT, YOU MIGHT DO, HOW LONG ARE YOU
TRAINING FOR THAT FIGHT?>>WELL, IT DEPENDS. SO THEY DON’T– OKAY SO, THERE’S
A COUPLE FIGHTS WHERE WE TRAINED A COUPLE OF DAYS, BUT WHAT
REALLY HAPPENS IS FOR ME, THEY GET– I GET BASICALLY LIKE A
JOHN WICK TOOLBOX SO I’LL KNOW HOWEVER MANY JUDO THROWS. THEY’LL CHOREOGRAPH MOST OF THE
JUJITSU. WITH THE HORSE, THERE’S A HORSE
FIGHT NOW. SO I HAVE TO DO SOME —
>>Stephen: YOU FIGHT A HORSE.>>I HAD TO GET OFF THE SADDLE. NO, I’M ON THE HORSE AND THEN —
>>Stephen: THE HORSE IS FIGHTING. THE HORSE IS FIGHTING.>>IT’S JOHN WICK. IT’S LIKE, INSTEAD OF JUST
RIDING THE HORSE YOU HAVE TO HAVE A GUN FIGHT AND DO ALL OF
THAT SORT OF STUFF.>>Stephen: WHAT IS IT LIKE TO
FIGHT ON A HORSE?>>IT’S FUN. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: DOES THAT MAKE YOU
NERVOUS AT ALL?>>NO! IT’S A MOVIE! IT’S FUN!>>Stephen: BUT THE HORSE IS
REAL. YOU COULD GETUE COULD GET THROWN
AND TRAMPLED.>>YEAH, YOU CAN DIE. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT THE THING IS– BUT THE THING IS, I MEAN —
>>Stephen: I WASN’T GOING TO GO THAT FAR, BUT THAT’S TRUE.>>THAT’S WHAT CAN HAPPEN. BUT THEY HAVE A SAFETY SYSTEM SO
THEY CREATED THIS RIG, WITH THE HORSE BEHIND A TRUCK AND THE
THING –>>Stephen: THEY STRAP THE
HORSE BEHIND A TRUCK. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?>>WELL KIND– IT’S VERY
COMPLICATED. BUT ANYWAY, YOU WON’T SEE THAT
IN THE MOVIE. I’LL JUST BE RIDING, AND IT WILL
LOOK– HOPEFULLY PEOPLE WILL ENJOY IT, BUT–
( APPLAUSE ) ( CHEERS )
BUT IT’S JOHN WICK!>>Stephen: I THINK WE HAVE–
I THINK WE HAVE AN IMAGE– I THINK WE HAVE AN IMAGE. IS THIS THE HORSE THING?>>YEAH, YEAH, BUT THAT’S
ACTUALLY JUST RIDING.>>Stephen: THAT’S JUST
RIDING, OKAY.>>THAT’S JUST RIDING. THERE’S A WHOLE OTHER THING THAT
HAPPENS.>>Stephen: DID YOU KNOW HOW
TO RIDE BEFORE THIS?>>YEAH, A LITTLE BIT. A LITTLE BIT.>>Stephen: HAVE YOU EVER
PLAYED A COWBOY?>>NO.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>YEAH. I’D LIKE TO. A WESTERN WOULD BE FUN.>>Stephen: SURE.>>BUT WITH THIS IT WAS JUST–
YOU KNOW, I WORKED WITH A SECOND-GENERATION HORSE MASTER
TAD GRIFFITH AND HIS FAMILY. YEAH, I MEAN, THAT’S REALLY WHAT
HAPPENS A LOT WITH JOHN WICK IS YOU GET TO MEET THESE GREAT
INSTRUCTORS AND TEACHERS. HEAL BERRY WORKED ON THE FILM. SHE WAS GREAT, AND SHE WENT INTO
JOHN WICK ACTION. SHE WORKED WITH TWO BELGIAN
DOGS. HER CHARACTER HAS DOGS. AND SHE TRAINED WITH THEM FOR
OVER –>>Stephen: THAT’S THIS.>>THAT’S THE SHOT. SHE HAD TO DO SOME JOHN WICK
ACTION. WHICH THEN SHE TRAINED FOR
ABOUT– OVER SIX MONTHS.>>Stephen: SO YOU’RE WORKING
WITH HORSES. YOU’RE WORKING WITH DOGS. IS IT HARD TO WORK WITH THE
ANIMALS ON SET?>>NO, AS LONG AS YOU BUILD,
“LIKE A RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.>>Stephen: WHAT WAS YOUR
RELATIONSHIP TO THESE DOGS? ( LAUGHTER ).>>I DIDN’T DO THE HALLE BERRY
SIX-MONTH TRAINING BECAUSE THEY WERE HER DOGS. OKAY, AN EXAMPLE WOULD BE THE
FIRST DAY THAT I WENT TO TRAIN WITH HEAL WHO HAD BEEN TRAINING
WITH WONDERFUL DOGS, THE TRAINER SAID, “SO HALLEY’S GOING TO
STAND THERE. THERE SHE IS AND THERE ARE HER
TWO DOGS. YOU’RE GOING TO WALK UP TO THEM. DON’T LOOK AT THEM. DON’T LOOK AT THEM IN THE EYE.”>>Stephen: WHY.>>BECAUSE THEY’LL– THEY– THEY
MIGHT DO SOMETHING NOT GOOD. NOW, THESE ANIMALS ARE REALLY
BEAUTIFUL AND FRIENDLY AND AWESOME —
>>Stephen: AS LONG AS YOU DON’T LOOK AT THEM. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT SOUNDS REALLY DANGEROUS. DID YOU GO, “YOU KNOW, NO MORE
‘JOHN WICK’ MOVIES IF THAT DOG TAKES MY FACE OFF.”>>NO, YOU JUST HAVE TO PAY
ATTENTION. AND EVENTUALLY I GOT TO KNOW
THEM BETTER AND HE STILL TOLD ME NOT TO LOOK AT THEM. HALE WORKED SO MUCH THE TRAINER
TOLD ME– HALE BY THE END WAS HELLO. AND GIVING COMMANDS. AND IF YOU SEE THE FILM, IT’S
PRETTY SPECTACULAR WHAT THEY DO TOGETHER.>>Stephen: DID THE HORSE EVER
GET SPOOKED BY THE DOGS OR, LIKE —
>>NO, THEY NEVER MET EACH OTHER.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>NO. BUT DOG THEY HAD IN “JOHN WICK”
ESCAPED ONCE IN TIMES SQUARE AT 5:00 IN THE MORNING ASK WENT
AFTER ONE THOSE OF HORSES WITH THE CARTS.>>Stephen: THE FIRST DOG–
>>I MEAN, IT DIDN’T GO AFTER IT. WE WERE DOING A SCENE, AND THEN
THE HORSE AND THE THING, AND THE DOG WENT, “OH!”
AND IT DID A DOG THING. IT WENT AFTER THE– OH, YEAH,
AND THEN THERE WAS– WHEN WE WERE IN MOROK OH, YEAH, THERE
WERE THE DOGS AND A LOT OF CATS. SO WE HAD, LIKE, CAT CHAOS.>>Stephen: ARE THESE TRAINED
CATS OR WILD CATS?>>THESE ARE WILD CATS WITH THE
DOGS. SO THEN WE WOULD BE DOING A
SCENE AND, “CAT! CAT! CAT!”
AND THE DOGS WERE JUST LIKE BUT THE THING IS WITH THE DOGS, YOU
CAN’T JUST GRAB THE DOG BECAUSE IF YOU —
>>Stephen: RIGHT, BECAUSE… EXACTLY. YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY MAKE EYE
CONTACT. YES, UH-HUH.>>EXCITING TIMES.>>Stephen: YEAH. WE HAVE A CLIP HERE. THIS IS NOT THE HORSE? WHAT IS THIS? THIS IS THE MOTORCYCLE.>>YES.>>Stephen: THIS IS THE
MOTORCYCLE. WHAT’S GOG HERE?>>WE WANTED TO OPEN UP THE JOHN
WICK ACTION IN THE FILM. WE HAD SOME HORSES AND SOME
DOGS. AND NOW THE DIRECTOR HAD THE
IDEA OF NINJAS AND A MOTORCYCLE FIGHT.>>Stephen: SURE, OBVIOUSLY,
THAT’S A NATURAL.>>IT’S JOHN WICK, BABY!>>Stephen: COME ON. JIM. WICK IT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>IT’S FUN. IT’S FUN!>>Stephen: WELL, YOUR FANS

ROLE FROM YOUR PAST. YOU AND YOUR FRIEND ALEX WINTER

BILL AND TED ARE COMING BACK. ANYTHING WE CAN KNOW ABOUT–
WHAT ARE THEY– WHAT ARE THEY DEALING WITH IN THIS ONE? YOU CAN TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT

“BILL AND TED FACE THE MUSIC.” AND WE’RE FINDING THEM HOWEVER
MANY YEARS LATER– I THINK IT’S OVER 25. AND THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO WRITE
THE SONG THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO UNITE THE WORLD AND BRING PEACE
AND EVERYTHING, BUT THEY HAVEN’T. AND SO WHAT HAS THAT DONE TO
THEM?>>Stephen: A LOT OF PRESSURE.>>IT’S A —
>>Stephen: LOT OF PRESSURE.>>PRESSURE. AND YOU’VE GOT YOUR FAMILY NOW,
BUT YOU’RE STILL TRYING TO WRITE THE SONG BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO
SAVE THE WORLD! BUT THEN THE FUTURE COMES DOWN
AND SAYS, “WELL, NO, YOU DON’T REALLY JUST HAVE TO SAVE THE
WORLD. YOU HAVE TO SAEFORT UNIVERSE,
AND YOU HAVE TO WRITE THE SONG IN, LIKE, 80 MINUTES.”>>Stephen: WOW.>>THIES PROBLEM BECAUSE WE

  1. Video poster 2 months
    Youtube recommendations after 2months

  2. I grew up watching western and I would love to see him in any western….love him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. On that note about a western…. I'd love to see him in something like the new MAGNIFICENT 7 and/or OPEN RANGE. I feel like it would be awesome.

  4. He's a good man and polite…i love him for being low profile all the time…may god bless u keanu reeves

  5. "You can get thrown, you can get trampled"

    Keanu Reeves-YEA YOU CAN DIE bt anyways-

    Lmfao I'm fuckin dead 😂😂💀💀💀

  6. To the last question he should have said: "The body cannot live without the mind" (Matrix) 🙂 I expected him to said that actualy but as you know it hes down to earth.

  7. that scene is most idiot and naive scene in movie even others are not far away too but it is only way how to survive assasins attacks in movie and win !! Chad Stahelski made assasins extreme stupid in JW 3

  8. A whole day conversation with him would be awesome for me, I could talk about everything with him. Lovely guy..just accept it ladies, he ain't available LOL give it up😎🖤😁

  9. Mr. Keanu Reeves we want you in the MCU…we know you're always conversating with the president of MARVEL studios Kevin Fiege…so please pick a character that doesn't die in 1 film.

  10. Was it just me or did anyone else hear that depression in his throat when he said "the ones who love us will miss us"
    Kinda like that feeling you have when you try not to cry aww and start choking

  11. Love Keanu and how humble he seems and grateful to be an actor he is. He really seems to appreciate who he is and those around him. Also love this interview because it has nothing to do with politics!

  12. 9:50 you shouldn't miss
    It's what most of the people came to watch
    💯❤️🔥🎊🎉

  13. This is one of the several reasons I despise Colbert. Class acts like Keanu shouldn't waste their time with clowns who disrespect his feeling… Knwoing the pain he has had regarding death.
    Critizice unsuccesfuly the government if you want, do bad jokes and be loved for being a clown, but respect one of the very few decent people in Hollywood.

  14. Ven que el resto son unos gallinas y tú eres una buena persona 😍😍😍😘🤩🤩🤩🤩💞💞💞

  15. Colbert was genuinely surprised at the end there when Keanu gave that answer because he probably expected Keanu to say something else like, "Oh, we go to Heaven." or something obvious.

  16. "The ones who love will miss us"
    Now tell if that's not something an immortal being would say about death?

  17. i have watched a lot of Keanu Reeves interviews, and i got to say… he always wear a fu*cking nice shoes…

  18. Yes. However in my enthusiasm, I fifnt Look. It actually came out a few years ago. I was going to look on YouTube.. Sorry 'bout that. I'll fact check next time. ThanQ for clarification.

  19. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure is my ALL-TIME favorite movie, followed by Up-In Smoke and The Warriors! (Imagine how f'n bitchen The Trusty Butter Knife must be!)

  20. Keanu can easily lift Mjolnir and stormbreaker at the same time. He's worthy! Godbless this pure hearted man! 😊😊

  21. I think the people obsessing about what he said about death, are only doing so because it's him. Not saying he isn't a great guy, but if it was just some random person saying it, most people wouldn't really think twice about it.

  22. I think Keanu was very humbled and surprised by the rousing and standing welcome from the audience. Thus he seemed a little more nervous in this interview, since he's already a humble person to begin with. And to realize that this interview had occurred before the public was made aware of his appearances in 'Always Be My Maybe', Toy Story 4, and Cyberpunk 2077. Wow, nice to see!

  23. Just watching Stephen Colbert get his mind blown by sudden poetry is worth the price of entry, alone. Keanu is a special person.

  24. Its the most poetic answer to this question that has probably been said in the history of mankind. Everybody (until now) answered this from a personal perspective. It takes a modest and humble person beyond believe to look at this question from a point of view of others and not himself

  25. The audience doesn't laugh when they're supposed to..fuken dumheads..and laughs at the minor thing I mean they don't get every sarcastic notion of keanu lol.
