The “Matrix” star has an extremely weird cameo in the trailer for the third SpongeBob movie that dropped on Thursday. In it, he plays a character named Sage who appears to be … a floating head inside of a tumbleweed?
When Reeves’ character meets SpongeBob and his buddy Patrick in the trailer, the two oceanic pals have quite a natural reaction to Sage. And by natural, we mean they’re straight-up terrified.
Yet Reeves uses his innate coolness to somehow soothe the disturbed duo and delivers some truly oddball lines:
“Call me Sage,” Reeves says in the trailer. “I’m made out of sage and I am a sage, so it works out pretty well.”
Whatever Reeves’ character may be, we’re pretty sure whoever conceived of it was probably inspired by something else from nature.
