I don't want to hate on Keanu, but f***ing hell, our original Johnny was way cooler and sounded like a maniac. Think Foltest on crack. I don't appreciate his acting either, but he's a very nice man. Walked up to us personally to greet us on the first day and took time to personally thank us one by one when they wrapped up recording.
The word is his fee was actually manageable and the need for a Star Talent came from outside CDPR. The execs complied, because who the f*** knows? It sucks.
Our original Johnny was heavily inspired by David Hayter's Solid Snake from the first MGS and believe it or not, Cillian Murphy

The mysterious locked doors everywhere - him saying those were lootable makes me believe him lol - a lot of it sounds plausible even.

To be fair, Keanu's acting in this game is shit. Most of the time he sounds more like a TTS app than an actual human.

Didn't play Cyberpunk yet but I liked the idea of Keanu in the game. But what the allegedly CDP Red dev said is even cooler. Would be great to have a Solid Snake type of character with the CDP Red writing. Solid is one of my fav characters in gaming.

Keanu's acting is fine. It's great for what he does and he has a pretty big role unlike the usual token stars that deliver two lines and go home.
It's not like they hired Daniel Day Lewis. You hire Keanu because people like him and he is a star and a nice guy.
When he appeared in stage everyone went crazy and not because he is an amazing actor.

I like Keanu a lot actually, and don't really think he's a super bad actor. But I don't like his delivery in Cyberpunk at all, I don't think he's pulling off his character well.

It can be well fake.
But I don't believe one word from that PR account.
They saying it is fake has basically no weight.

It is the same PR account that keep saying PS4 and XB1 versions were running pretty well two months before release lol

It has a lot of weight. And the pr account never said the console versions ran pretty well. The CEO said that in an investor call. In that investor call they also said that they delayed the game because the console versions were in a bad shape.

I like the idea of having Keanu around in the game. He's a great presence. But I didn't particularly like his character or the way he portrayed him. He wasn't "cool" to me, he was sort of a drag and a bore.

LOL. They shut down someone purporting to be a CDP Insider writing BS to stir the Reddit pot. They're still doing updates.
