Renowned American actor, rapper, and film producer Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr, popularly known as Common, states that he and Keanu Reeves had a fierce competition over the performance for their respective roles in the movie John Wick: action-thrillerChapter 2.
Common will share screen along with Keanu Reeves, in the continuation of the hit 2014 Keanu Reeves movie John Wick.
Common, who turned into acting after having a successful career as a rapper, says Keanu Reeves is an intense actor who would always seek the opportunity to woo the audience with his stand alone performance. So it was also very important for Common to raise his own standard of acting.
"I have seen Keanu being superb, so I knew I had to raise myself to that level and work really hard to get there. I was excited," Common said in a statement during an interview.
"With Keanu, it's like, he's going for real, he is not trying to hurt you but he wants to be the best, so for me, it was like I want to be the best... So we had a little competition," Common added further.
Keanu Reeves and action thriller starrer John Wick: Chapter 2 is all set to release on February 17 in India.
