Keanu Reeves is 50? Whoa! Which role is his most excellent?

Don't be sad, Keanu. Or, Sad Keanu. We all get older. And as you turn 50 on Tuesday, take comfort in knowing that your youthful good looks and the films you've left in your wake convey an enviable agelessness.

Keanu Reeves, the man with the mopey meme, has every reason to be happy at his age about a career in which his action antics and corny catchphrases are so well known.

Whether you still love picturing him alongside fellow 50-year-old and "Speed" co-star Sandra Bullock, or will forever consider him half of the dynamic airhead duo in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure," cast your vote for Reeves' most memorable big-screen role.

"Bram Stoker's Dracula," 1992
