The film industry has been a place where a star can make money.
Reeves, who turns 42 on June 20, is now a household name.
The actor and director is a force to be reckoned with, thanks to his success as the star of the beloved Hannibal movie franchise, which is the biggest movie franchise in Hollywood history, and the franchise’s sequels, Hannibal: A House On The Edge Of Forever and Hannibal: The Golden State.
The most recent installment, Hannibal, earned more than $1.5 billion at the global box office.
Reeves has been anointed a household-name for his portrayal of a tortured man who is transformed into a human-animal hybrid, and it is his work on the big screen that has kept audiences coming back for more.
Reeves’ rise to stardom was a natural progression for Reeves, a New Zealand-born actor and producer who has spent his career building his career as a film director.
His first big screen role came in 2006’s Gladiator, a gritty, gritty drama about an army of Romans fighting the Muslim invaders.
In the decade that followed, Reeves worked with several films and television shows, including the 2005 thriller The Expendables, the 2010 horror film Predator, the 2011 comedy The Last Boy Scout and, in 2015, the hit NBC comedy The Office.
He was also nominated for an Oscar for his role in the 2014 thriller The Hurt Locker.
But Reeves’ breakout role came as a young actor in the 2007 movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and as a man in the 1960s in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
Reeves is best known for playing the charismatic and morally ambiguous Caesar in the 2010 hit Gladiator, and he also starred as the villainous Caesar in 2013’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Reeves will turn 42 in June.
While he is a big name, Reeves isn’t the only celebrity to have had an impressive career.
In 2016, Oscar-winning actor and activist LeVar Burton starred in the first ever biopic of actor and singer-songwriter John Lennon.
Burton, who was born in the U.K., is known for his work in the Occupy Wall Street movement, including his role as a protester in the 2011 film The Help.
“It was an amazing moment for me because I never saw myself in the film,” Burton told The Associated Press.
“I was just the kid on the street, and now it’s a thing of beauty, and I’m not ashamed of it.”
Burton said he had to work to make it happen.
“There were no strings attached,” Burton said.
“My parents were supportive.
They said, ‘You have to do it.’
I did it.”
The star of The Man from U.S.C., Burton said, was also an inspiration to him.
“John Lennon is a very inspirational figure.
It’s something I’m really proud of,” Burton, whose real name is John Harrison, told The AP.
“He’s a man of integrity.
He’s a real man of principle.
He is the ultimate human being.”
