Our favorite stoic actor, Keanu Reeves has bravely gone where few people would ever want to go. I’m not talking about the Matrix, I’m referring to jail. According to the Associated Press, Reeves recently entered two jail facilities located in Buffalo, New York. Interestingly enough, the actor was given access to the building that the federal government has been denied. What’s up with that?

The two jails that Reeves visited are currently under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department. It turns out that the Erie County Sheriff’s Department is on the receiving end of a lawsuit for multiple civil rights violation. Therefore, the feds won’t be welcome anytime soon. The actor on the other hand received the star treatment when he arrived, and got an exclusive tour this past Sunday.

Reeves was scouting the institutions as possible locations to shoot his upcoming film Henry’s Crime. He will produce and star in the film about a big-hearted man falsely accused of robbing a bank in Buffalo. If I was a member of the federal government I would be so pissed. They let Neo in, but not an investigator? Now the “man” knows how it feels to be out of the loop for once.

What do you think about Reeves’ recent trip to jail?
