I picked up a copy of Kenneth Branagh's
rendition of "Much Ado About Nothing
" and saw to my pleasure that Kate Beckinsale
was present amongst the cast. As the opening sequence of "HEY, Nonny
Nonny!" rolled by, I was shocked
and insulted that Keanu Reeves had worked himself into a Kenneth Brannagh work.
I was quite frankly outraged by this. What on earth? Keanu may have a pretty face, but the man can't deliver lines worthy of a Shakespeare! This is Keanu "I am an F-B-I agent" Reeves. A man famed for saying the word "excellent" and playing air guitar. The man who said, erm, something in The Matrix (I can only remember him saying "whoa")
And then I realised the joke that old Ken was having with us when Keanu uttered his opening line, for he was playing Don John, a bastard and his first line is:
"I am not of many words"
Thank you Mr Brannagh, you made my day.
