Meet Keanu's Constantine
Well, both his hair and his coat are darker than I'm sure the forums will like, but here is our first look at Keanu on the Constantine set.
I think the look of the movie John Constatine is great. In a non-british, dark-haired, different-coat-but-they-got-the-sloppy-necktie/collar-thing-perfect-and-I'm-still-looking-forward-to-seeing-how-the-tattoos-fit-in sort of way.
The look absolutely conveys the feel of the character.
Adoring Keanu as I do and being a new fan of the comic, it's easy to accept this version. And his body language speaks to me. I think he's going to embrace the bastard just fine.
Ooooh, I'm excited about this again.
Thank you to Shelly for these!
Ashton fans, check out her site at Ashton-Kutcher.net!

Update: More pics from Shelly can be found over at Club-Keanu's Gallery.
I think he looks great. Sure his hair is dark but it works. :)
Go, bastard, go! Woohoo! I hope this is a good movie. I really do.
Is it just me who thinks he looks like a hybrid of Al Bundy and Thomas Anderson?
Nice work ladies! Keanu looks like he's wandered off the set for Generic Cop Movie, the makeup crew need to rough him up a little.
Yeah, he might still be *too* good looking.
He needs to look a bit more "put through the wringer".
Maybe it's an early scene, or a rehearsal even.
Oh!... He's 'embracing the bastard' allright ;-) *snicker*
Since this is one of the first Constantine shots, I'm pretty sure that the Hellblazer fans will check this entry out, too.
This means I must be 'calm, collected, cool and dignified'. I don't want them to think we're all "hormone crazed giggling girlies". You know.
Because that would damage our public relations.
Ehm, so I'm just going to whisper it: Krix, this is *clear* evidence on a certain subject. I'm convinced it's 'r'. *mystery solved* :-)
Wait... What do you mean, it's a gun??? *drat*
Whoa! I must be psychic! I just knew this picture would be the subject of your first post today!
No complaints here! :)
Yes. he is going to pull this off just fine. Yes, blonde would look stupid. IMO of course, which I am allowed to change, and did in this instance.
I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember which nemesis, but one of them forced Constantine to get tattoos. Read that somewhere after the Solano Beach show. I think I forgot the gingko today; I can't remember.
Check the "tree tattoo" thread at the hellforums, Chianti.
Evidently, Swamp Thing inhabited John's body at some point and while he was there he went to a parlor and got a tree tattooed on John's ass.
The best part is Constantine doesn't know it's there.
Not the Constantine we know and love, but he looks alright, I think he can pull it off. Well he looks like he's pulling something off in the second pic, dirty beggar.
Bad SWAMPTHING! :-D
I still haven't had time to check out all the stuff that the wonderful Funk provided, and I feel a bit guilty about that...
On a more bright note, I picked up my 'reloaded dvd' this afternoon!!!! :-)
AND with the aid of a 'coupon', I got about (rough currency-exchange rate) 5 dollar off the price! Weee, Keanu's on sale!!! :-)
I wonder if we're going to get to see the tree? teehee
HEY, there!!! He certainly looks extra white! EHEHE..but gougeous!
I´ve just finished my Backy FanSite. Wanna take a look at it?
Only if there is a god that watches out for keanuphiles. :)
Here's hoping that there is.
There are differences but I think he'll pull it off I too, can't wait to see it.
He does however look VERY pale or is this his usual complexion? Hopefully when he's wrapped he'll take a much deserved vacay to some place sunny!
Julie - Damned right that you should feel guilty. Now stop ogling over the Reloaded sex scene and get back to the site!
As for the pics... well, it looks like Keanu Reeves in a suit. I'm reserving judgement on his physical appearance until they break out the trenchcoats.
Smart man that he is, Keanu doesn't do sun without sunblock.
I wasn't oggling... Ehm... Really ;-) I'm at work right now :-) I don't have that much time to check out a lot of stuff.
But! Since Krix has laid out the path for us, and I DO want to do my duty as a soldier in the *bringing Keanu and Constantine fans together* peace keeping corps', I will check out the site more thoroughly on my later break. :-)
And I'll even consider leaving an appropriate "Funk rawks" message on that board, even though I never GO to any boards... Not even Keanu ones.
And! Who cares that I will have to put looking at Bia's site on hold, then. And who cares that it will take precious 'oggling the dvd-cover' time away from me. I'll do it all for you & Krix :-)
Ehm... Mainly because I don't want someone who knows his way around blood, terror & gore to be angry with me...
So could you please put the chainsaw down now? ;-D
thank god he's not blond! okay, so maybe i will enjoy this movie...
Ashton Kutcher is a great asshole. :))))
woah dude. I can't wait to see this movie.
Ni siquiera se acerca a Constantine. ¿donde esta el parecido con Sting que plantearon Stephen Bisette y Alan Moore?, en cualquier caso me parece que Brad Pitt serviría mejor encarnando al personaje.
Neo became an agent in the third matrix movie!
What was wrong with the brown coat?
Love him though you may, Clive Owen would have made a much better Constatine.
British and a whole lot more ragged/rougish, he woulda done the roll proud.
Hate to critize him on a fansite devoted to him, but reeves looks like an over acting Reservoir Dog in these pics.
Well, okay, I'm a Hellblazer fan that's gotten lost, so I thought I'd do my bit for PR and peace keeping ;) We're not all die-hard nerds that live in dark holes reading our comics. Indeed, I for one have a real appreciation of the male body ;) In case of future hard feelings, I just thought I'd point out that most of the objections are with the film - when you have a rumpled British ex-punk as a hero, Keanu may not seem the most obvious choice. Those of us with some intelligence left will at least attempt to see what the movie as what it is, rather than how we feel it should be. Well, that's my wee rant over with!
Alright, yeah, he looks rumpled, though his smirk looks more like he's constipated. Dunno, still not looking forward to Mr. "Whoa" God/Messiah of the Matrix playing Conjob. I still think if they had to go American, should have grabbed somebody who can play snarky, sneaky bastards like Kevin Spacey. Even James Marsters would be still be preferable. I heard they were considering Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind, A Knight's Tale) for the role. Right nationality, right look, dunno if he's played snarky chars. though. Rhys Ifan has some experience with such roles, again, closer look even though he's Welsh. Sean Bean or Ewan MacGregor, again, would be a better fit. If they still go through with this, will have to see how some of the film plays out. Though one thing Reeves has in his favor, one of his characters did double cross the Devil, that's promising at least.
I think they should rough him up a bit more (shouldn't be a problem - unshaved in the morning), his hair should go lighter and messier and the clothes need some work too. After all that, he'd pull our Mr.Constantine off just perfectly!
