During Microsoft’s 2019 E3 press conference, it was revealed that Johnny Silverhand will be portrayed by Keanu ‘John Wick’ Reeves. In a post E3 interview with Gamesindustry.biz, Cyberpunk 2077 quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz talked about Reeves portraying Silverhand in the game.
"I'm surprised we kept it secret," the designer said. “We were thinking about who [Johnny] is as a character. He is a rebel and is standing against the oppression; he's standing for an idea. A lot of characters that Keanu has played in his career were like that as well. We felt it was a natural pick for the character.”
"Also, I'm not sure if you know this, but he's also played a lot of characters called John or Johnny, which creates this cool link [Johnny Silverhand is from the original Cyberpunk RPG series]. In general, we felt it was a natural pick and he's a very experienced actor. We were very excited to be working with him."
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated for a release on Xbox One, PC and PS4 on September 17.
