Toy Story 4 sees the return of Woody, Buzz, Bo Peep and other beloved characters from Andy's toy box. But the movie also feature some new faces (and voices).

There is a Forky, played by Tony Hale, a hopelessly neurotic spork that was crafted into a toy by Bonnie. Then there is Duke Caboom, a gung-ho Canadian daredevil voiced by Keanu Reeves.

In order to find their Caboom, director Josh Cooley and producers Jonas Rivera and Mark Nielsen did a blind audio test. The casting department played audio recordings of line readings from actors, all Canadian, for the filmmakers, who didn't know which voice belonged to which actors.

It was during lunch, said the producer, that Reeves came up with the idea for Caboom's signature compulsion for posing. "He climbed on a table and was striking poses in the middle of the atrium and we thought that is Duke Caboom!"

Reeves has already had a busy summer. He is in theaters with the latest installment in Lionsgate's John Wick series and can also be seen in Randall Park and Ali Wong's Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe, in which he plays a heightened version of himself.
