Bossip editor Jason “Jah” Lee spoke to Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter about the newly released and long-awaited third edition of their nostalgic franchise ‘Bill & Ted Face The Music’. The Wyld Stallyns talked about their on-screen chemistry and the impact of Black musicians on their lives.
Alex and Keanu’s acting career sparked after beginning their journey with Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure back in 1989. The film followed the two music lovers as they used their legendary magic telephone booth to travel through time to finish a school project.
Fans instantly fell in love with iconic air-headed rockstar wannabes. The second installment of the film, Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991), brought the famed characters back again for another ride, where the two friends were faced with eliminating evil doubles of themselves.
Now, Bill & Ted Face The Music shows us a much older, much more…adult version of the crazy kids from San Dimas, California. They have women they love (The Princesses), children who rock, and an undying desire to unite the entire world through song. The new film also marks the return of Alex Winter who prior to filming, had taken a long hiatus from acting to step behind the camera as a director.
