Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves says he's a closet cricket fan


Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves confides that he's a closet cricket fan.

The star of blockbuster films Speed and The Matrix has been based in Britain for seven months working on a new project.

He tells Colin Paterson on BBC Radio 5 live that during that time he's caught cricket fever.

"I just like the way it quietly builds until that one event," Reeves tells 5 live Breakfast.

The star says he's also been watching the Ashes. "What was that bowler's name? Was it Tremont? Tremlett? When he got those two wickets... that was nice!"
