Keanu Reeves is apparently playing the role of a tumbleweed (well, a sage) in the upcoming new SpongeBob Squarepants movie, SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run.
The surprise announcement was revealed during the first trailer for the upcoming underwater flick, during which fans were pretty shocked to see Keanu Reeves’ face on a tumbleweed.
Though a tumbleweed/sage might not be as iconic a role as, say, Neo in The Matrix or the one and only John Wick, the appearance of the actor is guaranteed to be hilarious.
The SpongeBob movies have featured pretty impressive actors in them in the past, including the likes of David Hasselhoff.
Keanu is playing the role of Sage. In the new trailer, he tells SpongeBob and Patrick: “Hello. Call me Sage. I’m made out of sage and I am a sage, so it works out pretty well.”
