We’re sure Keanu Reeves would call this Johnny Silverhand cosplay by Dan Ballestero breathtaking; because he nailed the look of the “legendary Rockerboy” and then some. (Keanu Reeves will be playing Silverhand in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game.)
“There aren’t words to describe seeing someone of Mr. Reeves talent and legacy picking up a character Mike [Pondsmith, Cyberpunk 2020 creator] first introduced over thirty years ago and bringing him to life,” R Talsorian Games, publishers of Cyberpunk 2077 said in an interview with Polygon. “As a musician and someone who believes in making an impact in the word, someone who has known fame and the way it can lift and cut, its clear Mr. Reeves can understand Johnny in a way few people can. We’re beyond excited.”
