I just checked this out and it's been changed, cleaned up, shortened, better written. Most notably something about Keanu being "reviled" has been taken out. But the geologist father whopper is still there.

I find it interesting that a few days ago I mentioned that someone should take out the mistakes in the bio, and a week (or 2) later, changes are made. But it's not a more accurate bio, just something embarrassing about his acting rep is taken out. The "reviled" wasn't inaccurate - he is often reviled. Although I have publicly disagreed with a reviler, it's a fact that his acting has been reviled, and often. Yet the mistakes are still there.

Did anyone here change it? The only persons who contribute here and IMDB that I know of ar ardith and Luca, and I don't think that ardith would have submitted requests for change.

Also, AFAIK, you can only submit a request for a change, which doesn't mean it will happen.

So I wonder if someone from 3 Arts reads here and took the hint.

You know what they say. There are no such things as coincidences. ;0)

Seriously, it could be coincidence given KR has three projects coming out this year: Side by Side, Generation Um and 47 Ronin. The PR people are probably doing a general sweep as part of gearing up.

I do believe in coincidence but not in this case. That old bio was there for....a long time. They've had ample opportunities to "sweep" the bio clean for...a long time. Why now?

Also no one know about G-Um, when and whether it is coming out. I mean in the US & UK.

There was a time when everything I posted at IMDB was deleted by the administrator. No matter what the subject, it was always deleted. Then one of my haters had a brain aneurysm. The deleting stopped. Was it a coincidence?

I don't have any hope for Generation Um. I'm afraid it will never even be on DVD.

There is another film I have been waiting for it to come out for a year...no sign it will be released. It makes me sad.

The Topix message boards are NOT the center of the universe. Or of Universal, for that matter.

Swear to God, I didn't see that thread, which started in September 2011, when I'd made my suggestion.

Note that between September 15, 2011 and December 25 there's a gap.

Why is that? Why wait months after September 15, and only a few days after my suggestion?

I'm not sure exactly when I made my suggestion but it was not long before the change was made.

I'm sure I can count on Luca to find out the exact date and time when I did.

And yes, I remember being dumbfounded by the "inching towards A-list status," which just shows you how crappy these bios are. And how dated.

I think that a "sweep" of the bio should have "swept" that into the toilet several years ago.

Was that bio wrote before the Matrix films? There has always been a disagreement of whether he was A list. I would say A list and once you are A list, I think you are usually referred to as A list, even if you don't work.

No idea, it's just been there for a looong time. AFAIK, he's been A-list since Speed, no matter how many flops. All actors have their flops.

Cruise is now doing victory laps, so I hear. He's back with a vengeance.

You'd have to hire me first. And since you said that would never happen...

Where does your obsession with having the last word come from? Even when you have nothing to say, you have to say something.

ardit isn't nearly as bad as you are. Maybe she repeats herself, but at least the vast majority of what she says has some content, whereas you just react for the sake of being heard.

No one can possibly take anything you say seriously.

Messed-up childhood, where else from ? Isn't that what all textbooks say?

Another thing they took out of the bio was the word "inscrutable."

I can't think of an actor less inscrutable. He's a pretty easy read, if you know where the clues are.

It's like JTJ/ugossip used to be called. "Questionable Keanu"...kind of funny.

I can't tell you how many articles I've read about Keanu with the word inscutable or some simaliar description in it.

I am still trying to figure out what happened to Anakin's brain and critical faculties.

I mean, he posted the USA Today January 1995 news piece which reported in perfectly straightforward fashion that Geffen was a "buddy" of Keanu's, and flew to Winnipeg w/Patric and Katzenberg to see his Hamlet. And then 6 months later everyone believes that the two never met.

You can say that they never had an affair - fine. Reasonable people disagree. But that it was reported that Geffen did Keanu's mom a huge favor by flying her to Winnipeg (I think that's what the article said, maybe I'm wrong) to see him on stage, and then it's OK to wipe the record clean? Sucks.

Before a certain somebody pounces on my inaccuracy, the article did not say that Geffen flew Patric to Winnipeg. But it did call Geffen a "pal" of Keanu's.

It's weird. How can someone be a "pal" in January 1995, and "we never met" 6 months later?

I'm not quite sure how Patricia met Aaron, Gallin and Geffen. At some point the guys were all working on Broadway shows, maybe she was working in costumes...maybe Sam was supplying them? Who knows? She was attractive, Sam was IMO, very attractive...people like pretty people. Or maybe Patricia was a friend of Dolly's first and then Dolly introduced them? Apparently we will never know.

Patricia can act, I do know that.

Anakin hates me. Of course he/she, sorry I really do forget which sex she/he is. That could be part of the reason she hates me but not really. I challenged her and she really doesn't like to be challenged. She likes to tell you how it is...then she wants you to shut up.

... for crying out loud, what the fruck has Anakin to do with anything related to this discussion?

"His mom, and pals David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg are said to plan visits."

Grammar. "His mom, and pals..." Whose pals? Hers or his? There's no specific article.

I took it to mean, her pals but when I had a Mom, I actually knew her pals...met them, had dinner with them, went to their partys. I guess you are saying Keanu's mother would not introduce Keanu to the cream of Hollywood?
