The Canadian actor certainly has a lot to appreciate as he celebrates on Sept. 2. "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure," "Speed," "The Matrix," his '90s band Dogstar, and of course, our favorite -- the Sad Keanu internet meme.

Instead of getting comfy, though, Keanu is taking on a new challenge: directing. The Wrap reports that Reeves is in talks to direct "The Man of Tai Chi," which he also plans to star in. Reeves wrote the film which will also star his "The Matrix" co-star, Tiger Chen, a member of the kung-fu team.

Reeves will play the villain in the martial-arts film.
