It's 100% Pure Adrenaline Tonight with Point Break
Posted 08.17.12 by reelz
Before Kathryn Bigelow won the Oscar for directing The Hurt Locker, she directed a little movie called Point Break, which is tonight's primetime movie. The cult hit stars Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, and — as an added bonus — Gary Busey. Reeves plays an FBI agent who goes undercover to catch a gang of surfing bank robbers. Here are some other tidbits from Point Break:
— The role of Johnny Utah was offered to Matthew Broderick, Johnny Depp, and Charlie Sheen before Reeves took the role.
— Reeves learned how to surf for Point Break and still surfs today as a hobby.
— The bank robbers wear the masks of ex-presidents Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Lyndon Johnson.
— Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis has a cameo in the movie.
Point Break airs tonight at 6 PM ET/ 3 PM PT.
