Adam Driver was born in California, and has a Scottish, English, Irish, German and Dutch heritage. He made waves last year for his brilliant performance as a man going through a painful divorce, opposite Scarlett Johannson, in Netflix’s drama Marriage Story. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for the performance; it was his second Academy Award nomination.
Keanu Reeves is a Canadian actor, born in Beirut, Lebanon, with an interesting heritage. His mother is English, from Essex, and his father is a Hawaiian-born American with Portuguese, Irish, English, Chinese & Native Hawaiin heritage. Keanu has a career that is still going strong. He first got noticed by Hollywood in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, was the handsome detective in Point Break, and finally reached cult status as Neo in The Matrix trilogy.
Both Adam and Keanu have Irish and English blood and take the lead in their films. They certainly look similar, and they’re almost the same height – Adam is 6 foot 2” and Keanu is 6 foot 1”.
It looks like they both have long careers ahead of them, and it’s nice knowing there’s a Keanu lookalike who is such a brilliant actor!
