The two actors join Ali Wong and Randall Park, who were previously cast in the romantic comedy. They star as Sasha and Marcus, childhood friends who reconnect as adults.
There’s no word yet on the roles either Reeves or Kim will play. The film also stars Charlyne Yi (“Paper Heart”), Michelle Buteau (“Singularity”), Vivian Bang (“White Rabbit”), James Saito (“Paterno”), Susan Park (“Fargo: Season 1”), and Karan Soni (“Deadpool 2”).
Ali Wong is an actress and co-writer of this film. She currently stars on ABC’s “American Housewife,” and has appeared in “Father Figures” and “The Hero.” She does voice work, with roles in “The LEGO Ninjago Movie,” “American Dad!” and more. And she was a writer for ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat.”
Randall Park helped with co-writing the script. He stars as the Huang family patriarch in “Fresh Off the Boat.” He previously starred in “Office Christmas Party,” “Veep,” and “Trainwreck.” This summer, he appears in “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” and jumps into the DCEU in “Aquaman” this fall.
Daniel Dae Kim made a very public departure from “Hawaii Five-0” last season amid a contract dispute. He currently spends his time executive producing “The Good Doctor” for ABC. He was instrumental in helping adapt the series from a South Korean drama. He is set to star in the updated “Hellboy” in 2019.
Keanu Reeves got his start in comedies like “Parenthood” and “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” He is set to reprise his role in a third film in the “John Wick” franchise. Reeves will also star this summer in the romantic comedy “Destination Wedding,” opposite Winona Ryder.
“Always Be My Maybe” is directed by Nahnatchka Khan, who created “Fresh Off the Boat.” She also produced “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” and “American Dad!,” among other projects.
