Keanu Reeves was far from the Wachowskis' first choice to play Neo in THE MATRIX, in fact, the role almost went to Will Smith . However, Smith's skepticism about their ability to successfully pull off the ambitious bullet-time effects led to him turning down THE MATRIX and choosing to do WILD WILD WEST instead. Not exactly the best choice he could have made, but his career...

Keanu Reeves is still open to Matrix 4, under some conditions
