Adam Driver, who currently stars as emotional villain Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, looks a little bit like a young Keanu Reeves. What’s that? You don’t think so? Well, take a look at this startling photograph that comic book writer Mark Millar put together:
Face-Swap Adam Driver and Keannu Reeves and you just feel confused and slightly lost… pic.twitter.com/u9bZLYX35c— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) December 18, 2017
Yes, the photo on the right is Adam Driver. The photo on the left is Keanu Reeves’ face photoshopped on Adam Driver’s head. We’re pretty sure that’s correct. The internet was confused and distraught by the image.

The face swap image upset several Keanu Reeves fans who thought the actor deserved better.
Y’all have lost your mind slandering Keanu like this. Repent. https://t.co/anj6lPxBzy— Angelica Jade (@angelicabastien) December 18, 2017
Why y’all gotta do Keanu Reeves like that? https://t.co/jqilwouuoZ— Jamie Broadnax (@JamieBroadnax) December 19, 2017
Keannu Reeves sweetie, i'm so sorry https://t.co/jtCapGXglT— bebê da katy perry (@darthgabes) December 19, 2017
But others embraced the image and used it as a springboard for jokes involving the two actors’ combined filmography.

Adam Driver is just a 4K Keannu— O Drey do Gado™ (@AndreyLouis) December 18, 2017
Adam Driver actually doesn’t look that much like Keanu Reeves (it’s mostly the hair!) but picturing Reeves as Kylo Ren is both amusing and disturbing.
Anyway, if Reeves was cast in a Star Wars film, he’d definitely be a member of the Resistance.
