Ally Maki unveils new Toy Story 4 poster with Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves in Toy Story 4

Ally Maki has a new playmate, fellow actor Keanu Reeves.

The two had a playful exchange while unveiling the new poster of Duke Caboom, Reeve’s new character in the Toy Story franchise.

According to EW, Caboom is the “most narratively nuclear toys to cross paths with Woody and Buzz during their upstate vacation.”

Reeves knows being the newby on the block, he has to find a way to give Woody and Buzz their space while at the same time pushing forward his own big personality.

“I wanted to make sure I didn’t do anything that would go into Tim Allen’s space as Buzz Lightyear,” Reeves, 54, told EW. “That was one thing I was really paying attention to when I was thinking about the character and how he would talk. So I made Duke a little more gravelly but still tried to give him energy and a big personality.… I just thought that Duke should love what he does. He’s the greatest stuntman in Canada! I wanted him to be constantly doing poses on the bike while he was talking, to have this great extroverted passion.”

Caboom will feature a handlebar moustache.

“I also saw him as a character that has a really wide dramatic bandwidth in the sense of being so big – ‘Kaboom! Kapow! Let’s go!’ But who can also then share his wounds, like, ‘You have a kid? I had a kid. I let him down!’ And he can get quiet,” Reeves said to Digital Spy.

Toy Story 4 opens June 21.
