A while ago, a couple of friends of mine from college started a podcast about the career of Nicholas Cage, called #CageClub. They watched everything he's appeared in, and then podcasted about it. After completing the Cage oeuvre, they have moved on to taking a look at the career of Keanu Reeves with #KeanuClub. The podcast network has also grown to include shows about the career of Zac Efron, called #ZacAttack, and monkeys through film history on Monkey Club. The newest addition to their lineup is the Now and Again podcast, which "will take a look at [each] volume from the Now That's What I Call Music! compilation discography as a means to explore not just pop music/culture, but nostalgia, growing up and how pop music latches itself onto our memories."
I'll be on all of the #KeanuClub episodes featuring the Bill & Ted franchise, including the Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey films, the animated series, and the long awaited Bill & Ted 3, if it ever actually happens (find links to each episode below).
Take that, everyone who ever called our Communications degrees useless!
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989), 22 July 2016
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures (1990), 2 September 2016
In this episode of #KeanuClub we discuss the first season of the animated series, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures. The cartoon was not my favorite, but it has an excellent theme song, and I'll use any excuse to discuss my dudes, Bill and Ted!
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991), 23 September 2016
In this episode of #KeanuClub, we'll be talking about Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, which is actually one of my favorite movies of all time. It gave me a chance to show off some of my extensive knowledge about the Death Figure in popular media, and we talk more about the franchise as a whole and ponder what third movie might cover.

Bill & Ted 3? (20??), date TBA
A third film in the Bill & Ted series has been rumored since as early as the release of Bogus Journey. Some even believe the script was instead turned into Biodome, starring Pauly Shore. During the 2015 promotional tour for his documentary, Deep Web, IRL Bill S. Preston Esq., Alex Winter, confirmed that a third movie was in the works.
But as Winter told Forbes in April 2016: “This is Hollywood so I don’t believe it’s happening until it’s coming out on VOD, but we’re all working on the film everyday at the moment in terms of the pre-prep type work so it’s an active project. Hopefully we’ll be shooting it shortly."
During the promotional tour for The Neon Demon in June 2016, Keanu confirmed to ET that a new draft of the script had recently been finished and that it is "bodacious, excellent, and heartwarming." He said, "We're still dealing with dough and story, but we're closer."
Sounds most triumphant, we hope to see it happen soon! Until then...
