A Moment of Funny

April 14, 2010

I was just doing some research for an article on—well, you’ll see in November!—when I came across a Straight Dope discussion board from February where people were talking about actors who were in the midst of making films—and died before they were finished. Brandon Lee in The Crow, Vic Morrow in The Twilight Zone, and Bela Lugosi in Plan 9 from Outer Space are mentioned. Then someone wrote this:

“Keanu Reeves died at the beginning of The Matrix, but fortunately they found a plank of wood that looked just like him.”

With all due respect to Mr. Reeves—dat funny.
