Keanu Reeves’ hilarious Toy Story 4 character deets finally released
We've been anxiously waiting for Disney/Pixar to reveal more details about the highly anticipated Toy Story 4, and they have finally delivered.
Keanu Reeves has been cast as Duke Caboom, "Canada's greatest stuntman", and he's revving to go. As are we.
The teaser clip shows Reeves' character in a commercial for "the greatest toy that Canada has ever seen" (according to the theme song).
It becomes immediately, and hilariously, clear that he is not quite as talented as the advert claims him to be…

The Canadian stuntman is reminiscent of cult favourite characters like Super Dave Osborne and Evel Knievel, and is very nostalgic of the 1970s.
Duke Caboom is always prepared to show off his stunt posing with swagger and confidence, leaving the other Toy Story 4 characters confused and with many questions.
Woody quickly notices that Duke has an Achilles heel: he can't actually do any awesome stunt work which is advertised in his personal toy commercial.
As it turns out, Duke has been sitting in an antique store, reliving the tragic personal failures of times gone by.
The fourth Toy Story offering is directed by Josh Cooley and features the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Maddie McGraw, Jordan Peele, Ally Maki, Don Rickles and Christina Hendricks, among many others.
Toy Story 4 will "crash into theatres" on June 20 of this year, so it's not long now to wait to see our beloved heroes once more.
