Beaverton! loves Keanu

I'm still waiting for Chase Offerle to stop by the comments of this entry and give us some info on Thumbsucker. It's sure to be coming out soon, right?

Anyway, via Club-Keanu, the Beaverton Valley Times has an article about the effects on the Beaverton local family and dentist who had their home and business featured in the movie.

Galloway helped coach Reeves on some dental examination techniques, but mostly he watched as the actor gave Pucci “an E-ticket ride” through the world of dentistry.

“I just showed him how to hold the instruments and adjust the chairs, that type of thing,” Galloway said. “He pretty well had his character all set by the time he showed up here.”

Read the whole article at the Beaverton Valley Times website.

Thank you, Krix, for posting this article! As you might know, Thumbsucker was filmed very close to my hometown and I narrowly missed all of this fun. However, I simply can't wait for it to come out and I hope Chase Offerle comes here too! Anyway, if anyone ever has a question about the filming of this movie, you can ask me, and I was also an extra in it! So exciting! :)

Get him to quit smoking? Are you high? Screw that, buy a fishing pole, put a pack of Marlboro Reds on the hook and see if you can catch him!

For the longest time he didn't smoke. I remember thinking it was so cool, he seemed like the only actor to ever get photographed without a butt between his fingers. There was even an interview in which he complained that the character he was playing smoked (Feeling Minnesota's Jjaks, I think) and that he was now coughing this smoker's cough, which he hated. I think Devil's Advocate came soon after, and he had to smoke in that one too. Next thing you know he's on the cover of Premier with a butt hanging between his fingers. Yech!

Hey Ke! If it'll help you quit, I never date men who smoke. *this should help* ;)
