Well known Canadian actor, from such films as The Matrix trilogy, also has US citizenship through his father, and British citizenship through his mother.
As quoted on his Wikipedia page (external source) as of August 31, 2013:
"Reeves excelled more in hockey than in academics, as his educational development was challenged by dyslexia. He was a successful goalie at one of his high schools (De La Salle College "Oaklands"), and earned the nickname "The Wall". While Reeves dreamed of playing hockey for Canada, an injury ended his hopes for a hockey career. After leaving De La Salle College, he attended Avondale Secondary Alternative School, which allowed him to obtain an education while working as an actor; he later dropped out, never obtaining his high school diploma."
According to his eponymous episode of Filmography (External source), a 2005 episode of a series of biographical documentaries based on famous Canadian actors, he was about to start a major junior career with the Windsor Spitfires (OHL) but due to an injury and an unexpected trip to New York City to visit his former step-father, his life path turned towards acting, leaving his previous dreams of playing hockey for Canada.
