One's blond blue-eyed and brainy, the other's tall, dark-eyed and gorgeous.
Count on Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, also known as Bill and Ted,
to set summer movie screens ablaze - literally - in their hottest, most hellish adventure yet.
Here's YM's EXCELLENT lowdown on two jammin dudes....
shooting of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure II is just being wrapped
up in Santa Clarita, CA. Blond moptop Alex Winter is perched on a rock
in the hot sun, watching an actor dressed up as a demon pull rats out
of his mouth. Pretty gnarly, but all in a day's work when you're half
of America's favorite dude team. At 25, Winter is probably Hollywood's
youngest hippest master of all trades, with as much experience behind
the camera (director, writer, producer) as in front of it. He even has
a movie production company called Stern Winter Productions, which he founded
with his college buddy Tom Stern, back when they were students at New
York University's prestigious film school. Despite that and an impressive
list of film and stage credits, you probably won't see Winter talking
on the phone in a black BMW. Winter is on the cutting edge of the new,
young Hollywood - the Hollywood that prizes intellect over a buffed, tanned
bod and believes movies can be art too. While Bill & Ted co-star Keanu
Reeves is well on his way to becoming a leading man in the classic Hollywood
mode, Winter's aspirations have more to do with the entire craft of filmmaking.
