10 Movie Stars and Their Early Roles

Keanu Reeves in One Step Away (1985)

The man who cracked The Matrix and was one half of the cultural phenomenon known as Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (he was Ted), Reeves did some TV work before his role in this troubled-teen flick produced by the National Film Board of Canada. He plays a kid with tough choices to make in a world that has stacked the odds against him. One Step Away is a couple steps away from being a good movie, but the future Speed star showed promise.
