Keanu Reeves slips Chuck Spadina into Jimmy Fallon's Whisper Challenge

Keanu Reeves seems to be enjoying his more devil-may-care, IDGAF presence post-John Wick, and he had more fun with Jimmy Fallon during the latest Whisper Challenge on The Tonight Show Friday.
After throwing in the towel (and his headphones) when he couldn’t get the first round, he ditched the cards and asked the audience to pick what they wanted him to trick the late-night host to say.
“Chuck Spadina,” an audience member shouted. “Okay, we’ll just make it easy,” Reeves smiled.
Chuck Spadina, as the Bad Batch actor explained earlier in the show, was the name he almost adopted when he was first breaking into the acting world. Another option he came up with was Templeton Page Taylor, but his agents weren’t into it, so he stuck with Keanu Reeves. “I tried to wear them down,” he said.
Fallon fell to the floor in a fit of laughter when he realized what his guest was mouthing.
“You kind of have a Chuck Spadina look,” Reeves had told Fallon, who’s still rocking his mustache.
