What Is The Cast of ‘The Matrix’ Doing Now?

Feel old yet? Yes, it has been 20 years since we first saw The Matrix. Released in 1999, the movie became a blockbuster thanks to its great cast, incredible special effects, and a great cyberpunk story. The film has influenced a lot of movies in the future, including video games. Let’s take a look at what has been going on with the cast. We all know what Keanu Reeves has been doing all these years after the first Matrix movie, but what about the other actors?

A great surprise is that, even though the sequels released after The Matrix were not popular, we will see a fourth installment of the franchise, directed by the Wachowskis. Of course, we’ll get to see many of the favorite stars in the original movie, such as Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.
Until then, let’s check them all out in the next pages.

Keanu Reeves is a beloved celebrity because collectively known to be a kind and humble person. He’s also an incredible actor, playing in the John Wick franchise, making an appearance in Netflix’s “Always Be My Maybe” – which we loved and played on repeat! He’s also worked with gaming company CD Projekt Red, where he’s a cyborg that helps players during a mission.
The production of the fourth Matrix will begin in 2020, so we’ll just have to wait and see him pick up the role once again. One thing is true: Keanu Reeves is breathtaking!

Agent Smith was the intelligent and sentient computer that kept humans from waking up and freeing themselves from the Matrix. Hugo Weaving enjoyed his role, saying that he could dip into humor because he didn’t play the role of the hero:
“I have much more scope with my character to be funny. You could see it in the writing — it attracted me to that character.”
